HaloTag® Technology for Protein Interaction Studies
Identify Rare Protein:Protein Interactions
Protein interactions are critical to the majority of cellular processes, including: replication, transcription, translation and signal transduction. The characterization of these interactions aids researchers in determining the function of proteins and the genes that encode them.
- Obtain highly pure protein with minimal effort
- Protein recovery superior to FLAG® and His tags
- Convenient scalability from μg to mg levels
- Quantitate expression levels using fluorescence
Schematic of the HaloTag® Mammalian Pull-Down System protocol
Example of a pull-down experiment detected by silver staining after SDS-PAGE separation.
Superior recovery and purity
Better recovery of highly purified protein compared to FLAG® and His6 tags
Covalent binding of HaloTag®-fusion proteins affords efficient protein recovery, and low non-specific binding.
Compatible with many downstream applications. Samples can be analyzed by SDS electrophoresis followed by silver stain detection, Western blotting or mass spectrometry (MS).
