1-Step Heavy Protein In Vitro Protein Expression Kits


Express full-length heavy proteins for mass spectrometry proteomics analysis.

1-Step Heavy Protein In Vitro Protein Expression Kits

Thermo Scientific 1-Step Heavy Protein In Vitro Protein Expression Kits enable rapid cell-free expression of recombinant proteins containing stable isotope-labeled (i.e., heavy) amino acids.

The 1-Step Heavy Protein IVT Kit uses a unique HeLa cell lysate supplemented with heavy amino acids for in vitro translation (IVT) of proteins with 90 to 95% isotope incorporation efficiency in less than 8 hours. Heavy proteins expressed using this system can be used as mass spectrometry controls for sample prep loss, digestion efficiency determination or as quantification standards.

Highlights:

  • Efficient – express heavy proteins with 90 to 95% stable isotope incorporation
  • Functional – uses the human translational machinery to express more biologically active proteins than other IVT systems
  • Flexible – express light proteins or heavy proteins containing 13C615N2 L-lysine and/or 13C615N4 L-arginine
  • Convenient – perform transcription and translation in a single step
  • High performance – greater yields compared to rabbit reticulocyte in vitro translation

Applications:

  • Identify ideal peptides for targeted quantitation
  • Verify protein digestion efficiency
  • Control for protein sample prep variability and affinity enrichment loss

Product Details:

Thermo Scientific 1-Step Heavy Protein IVT Kit contains all of the necessary components to express a heavy protein including HeLa cell lysate, proprietary accessory proteins, reaction mix, heavy amino acids, positive-control GFP DNA and the pT7CFE1-CGST-HA-His cloning vector. The benefits of in vitro expression of heavy proteins over traditional in vivo systems include expression of toxic or insoluble proteins, a more rapid protein synthesis and a more economical use of heavy amino acids compared to stable-isotope labeled cell lines. This small-scale expression method makes it easy to express numerous heavy proteins simultaneously or to express large quantities of a single heavy protein up to 100µg/mL. Tandem affinity purification of heavy proteins is aided using an expression vector containing multiple affinity tags including GST, HA and 6xHis.

Expression and analysis of stable-isotope labeled BAD protein with the Thermo Scientific 1-Step Heavy Protein IVT Kit.
Expression and analysis of stable-isotope labeled BAD protein with the Thermo Scientific 1-Step Heavy Protein IVT Kit. A. HA-tagged BAD was expressed using the 1-Step Heavy Protein IVT Kit and affinity purified using the Thermo Scientific Pierce HA Tag IP/Co-IP Kit and analyzed by SDS-PAGE. B. The protein bands were excised, digested and analyzed using a Thermo Scientific LTQ Orbitrap XL mass spectrometer and identified as heavy BAD and light 14-3-3σ which co-purified during immuoprecipitation. MS spectrum of a light and heavy BAD peptide showing >95% heavy isotope incorporation. MS/MS spectrum used for peptide identification is shown in the figure insert.
