This novel protein purification system opens up the possibilities for the expression, purification and functional analysis of His-tagged proteins expressed in rabbit reticulocyte-based protein expression systems. The MagZ™ Protein Purification System offers a unique advantage over nickel-based systems by specifically purifying polyhistidine-tagged (His-tagged) proteins from rabbit reticulocyte lysate without co-purification of hemoglobin. Thus, the proteins purified using the MagZ™ System could be used for several downstream applications, which are often limited by the presence of hemoglobin in the eluted samples using other immobilized metal ion affinity chromatography (IMAC) methods.
