Purification of major variable-surface glycoproteins from African trypanosomes by reverse-phase high-performance liquid chromatography



Purification of major variable-surface glycoproteins from African trypanosomes by reverse-phase high-performance liquid chromatography



Analytical Biochemistry, 1422: 360-368



Reverse-phase high-performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC) was used in a one-step procedure to purify and analyze several different major variable-surface glycoproteins (VSGs) from lysates of African trypanosomes. RP-HPLC was used to fractionate lysates of trypanosomes and the VSG localized to the major peak of the elution profile using a rabbit antiserum to the cross-reacting determinant of the VSG. Polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis of HPLC fractions showed that the purity of isolated VSGs was equivalent to or better than that attained using conventional purification procedures. The elution positions of purified VSGs from a variety of cloned trypanosomes were identical, indicating the presence of a common hydrophobic feature on the surface of these highly polymorphic antigens. Preliminary experiments have shown that purification of VSG from trypanosome lysates may be scaled up to preparative levels. The results show that RP-HPLC is a useful procedure for rapid preparation of highly purified trypanosome VSGs and that analysis of their various molecular forms will be facilitated by the application of HPLC methods.
