The Celltechgen™ Nuclear and Cytoplasmic Extraction Reagents
The Celltechgen™ Nuclear and Cytoplasmic Extraction Reagents provides for efficient cell lysis and extraction of separate cytoplasmic and nuclear protein fractions in less than two hours. The nuclear protein extraction method involves simple, stepwise lysis of cells and centrifugal isolation of nuclear and cytoplasmic protein fractions. A benchtop microcentrifuge, tubes and pipettors are the only tools required. This Reagents efficiently solubilize and separate cytoplasmic and nuclear proteins into fractions with minimal cross-contamination or interference from genomic DNA and mRNA. The isolated proteins can be used to perform immunoassays as well as protein interaction studies such as mobility shift assays （EMSA）, co-immunoprecipitation （Co-IP） and pull-down assays.
Highlights of this Kit:
Fast – obtain nuclear and cytoplasmic fractions in less than two hours
Proven – This Reagent Kit is referenced in more than 950 distinct publications
Scalable – two kit sizes for producing extracts from cells and tissues
Convenient – simple instructions do not require ultracentrifugation over gradients
Compatible – use for downstream assays, including Western blotting, gel-shift assays, protein assays, reporter gene assays and enzyme activity assays
Product Details for the Celltechgen™ Nuclear and Cytoplasmic Extraction Reagent Kit:
There are a variety of methods available to isolate nuclei and prepare nuclear protein extracts. Most of the methods for preparing nuclear extracts are lengthy processes requiring mechanical homogenization, freeze/thaw cycles, extensive centrifugation or dialysis steps that may compromise the integrity of nuclear proteins. The Celltechgen™ Nuclear and Cytoplasmic Extraction Reagent Kit is a reagent-based protocol that enables the stepwise lysis of cells, separation of the cytoplasm from the intact nuclease and then extraction of nuclear proteins away from genomic DNA and mRNA. This gentle process takes less than two hours and requires only a standard bench top centrifuge when using cultured cells. Furthermore, both active nuclear proteins and cytoplasmic proteins can be recovered from the same cell culture or tissue sample.
From two million cells, typical cytoplasmic protein yield is 200 to 500µg and typical nuclear protein yield is 100 to 200µg （at a concentration 1mg/mL）. Typical cross-contamination between cytosolic and nuclear fractions is about 10%. The protein concentration of the nuclear extracts can be manipulated easily by varying the volume of nuclear extraction reagent used in the extraction without any significant loss in extraction efficiency. Specific extraction of nuclear proteins from cells is central to the success of many gene regulation studies. While a variety of methods exist to isolate nuclei and prepare nuclear protein extracts, most of these are lengthy processes requiring mechanical homogenization, freeze/thaw cycles, extensive centrifugation or dialysis steps that may compromise the integrity of many fragile nuclear proteins. This Kit overcomes these problems, providing high-quality, concentrated nuclear protein extracts for use in EMSA and other analysis techniques.
