The addition of calcium chloride to the CHAPS reagent preserves calcium dependent protein-protein interaction, whereas the addition of EDTA abrogates the interaction. 

Highlights: CHAPS Buffer 
  • Strong cell lysis and protein extraction capacity while preserving protein conformation and protein-protein interaction for co-immunoprecipitation (Co-IP) analysis.
  • Can be used with tissues (see product citation 1 below) as well as culture cells. 
  • Effective as a stand alone reagent for cell lysis, protein extraction and subsequent Western blot in addition to immunoprecipitation.
  • Contains a non-amine buffer (HEPES) enabling cross-linking with NHS-ester derivatives. 
    Ingredients:  0.5% CHAPS, HEPES, NaCl
  • Compatible with Bradford, Lowry and BCA protein assays.
  • 60 ml volume:  Suitable for two hundred 10 cm culture plates, or six hundred wells in 6-well dishes.  120 ml volume for four hundred 10 cm culture plates or 1200 wells in 6-well dishes.
  • Storage:  4oC.  Ships at ambient temperature.

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 summarized in the product manual.  Western blotting (WB) was performed with the antibodies indicated in the figure.

                              IP:  Anti-HA COPII                      IP:  Anti-HA COPII
                                WB: Anti-TRPC6                        WB:  COPII

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.
