Step-Wise Refolding of Recombinant Proteins

Author(s): Kouhei Tsumoto, Tsutomu Arakawa, Linda Chen.

Abstract:

Protein refolding is still on trial-and-error basis. Here we describe step-wise dialysis refolding, in which denaturant concentration is altered in step-wise fashion. This technology controls the folding pathway by adjusting the concentrations of the denaturant and other solvent additives to induce sequential folding or disulfide formation.

Keywords: Step-wise refolding, arginine, aggregation, antibody fragment, dialysis
