Removal of Tightly Bound Nucleic Acids
Posted 07 August 2010 - 06:47 AM
I am having some trouble purifying a DNA binding protein. It seems to be bound by some very strongly interacting nucleic acids, from the cell lysate, as suggested by the very high absorption at 260 nm on the UV.
Could you suggest any protocol(s) which will allow for the removal of such nucleic acids?
Thanks in advance,

Thanks for the suggestion, already tried adding some, did not work. Next time I'll add a bit more...
