Total proteins extraction - (Jun/05/2007 )

Hi, Im trying to extract total proteins from the spear leaf of oil palm but to no avail. The protocol that im using is acetone/TCA-based. The yield was ok with the mesocarp tissues but not from the spear leaf. I have tried several other protocols but still unable to extract an satisfactory quantity of total proteins (not visible from the sds-page). have anyone here has any suggestion to my problem? thanks wink.gif


i posted my protocol here
i'm not familiar with your plants, but maybe you can play with that protocol ?


Hi Fred,

Thanks for your suggestion but i already tried something similiar to the protocol you suggested. Anyway, thanks.
