Available Options:
 
CHAPS Lysis and Immunoprecipitation (IP) Buffer 
 
CHAPS cell lysis and immunoprecipitation buffer with 0.5% CHAPS, HEPES, NaCl, 1X Solution.  60ml or 120ml volumes.

(Formulations available.  CHAPS buffer, pH 8.0;  CHAPS buffer, pH 7.4;  CHAPS buffer, pH 6.0;  optional addition of 1mM EDTA;  optional addition of 1mM CaCl2).  

 
Highlights, CHAPS Buffer 
  • Strong cell lysis and protein extraction capacity while preserving protein conformation and protein-protein interaction for co-immunoprecipitation (Co-IP) analysis.
  • Effective as a stand alone reagent for cell lysis and protein extraction.
  • Contains a non-amine buffer (HEPES) enabling cross-linking with NHS-ester derivatives.
  • Minimal interference with Bradford and Lowry protein assays.
  • 60 ml volume:  Suitable for two hundred 10-cm culture plates, or six hundred wells in 6-well dishes.  120 ml volume is also available.

 

 
Properties of CHAPS Lysis and Immunoprecipitation Buffer
 
CHAPS is a zwitterionic detergent with strong membrane dissolution capacity while maintaining protein conformation and protein-protein interaction.  The CHAPS reagent provides an effective stand alone buffer for cell lysis and protein extraction as well as a reagent suitable for downstream immunoprecipitation-pull down approaches.

CaCl2 and EDTA Options*
a)  Optional additon of 1 mM EDTA
b)  Optional addition of 1 mM CaCl2
*Addition of CaCl2 or EDTA does not affect price.  See "Available Options" menu to order.

The addition of calcium chloride to the CHAPS reagent preserves calcium dependent protein-protein interaction, whereas separately, the addition of EDTA abrogates the interaction.  The CHAPS immunoprecipitation reagent is offered with or without 1 mM calcium chloride and/or 1mM EDTA to investigate the roles of calcium in protein-protein interactions.  Use the Available Options menu above to select the calcium chloride or EDTA formulations in the CHAPS Reagent.

(*Note:  The CHAPS Buffer with formulations containing calcium chloride, or EDTA, have been employed to characterize calcium dependent chaperone protein interactions, such as with calnexin or calreticulin (see references 2-6 below).


Representative Data with CHAPS Immunoprecipitation and Cell Lysis Reagent (pH 8.0)

Figure 1 
Co-immunoprecipitation (Co-IP) of a trafficking protein receptor (COPII) with a cation channel (TRPC-6).  HEK293 cells were co-transfected with plasmid DNA encoding TPRC-6 and a HA epitope tagged component of COPII (sec24).  Cell lysis and immunoprecipitation were performed in CHAPS Buffer as indicated in the product protocol.  Western blotting (WB) was performed with the antibodies indicated in the figure.

Figure 2 
Co-immunoprecipitation (Co-IP) of a calcium binding protein with a multisubunit target protein 1 employing the FIVEphoton CHAPS immunoprecipitation reagent.  A larger amount of target protein 1 associates with the calcium binding protein when expressed alone, as compared to co-expression (and presumed assembly) with protein 2.  Protein 1 reveals higher molecular weight forms due to post-translational modifications.
