Improved large-scale purification of transducin, and its alpha and beta gamma subunits from frozen retinas



Improved large-scale purification of transducin, and its alpha and beta gamma subunits from frozen retinas



Preparative Biochemistry 24(3-4): 279-288



The transducin heterotrimer and its alpha- and beta gamma-subunits have been purified from frozen bovine rod outer segments by modifying existing procedures. The methods described here are relatively simple and fast. The yield (ca. 8 mgs/100 retinas) and purity of the transducin heterotrimer and subunits from frozen retinas is equal to or larger than those previously obtained from fresh or frozen retinas.
