Protein stability at room temperature
Posted 14 July 2011 - 05:48 AM
I am a new student in biology field. So i have a stupid question in my mind....can anyone please let me know that if protein samples are kept out of ice while working in the lab by mistake for 2/3 minutes whether there is a chance of protein breakdown or degradation??
How long is it OK if kept out of ice??

The answer is - it depends on the protein.
Thanks a lot KB....I really appreciate your prompt response...
The sample is nuclear extract sample and I am looking for all the glycosylated proteins and Thrombospondin 1..Waiting eagerly for your response....
