Product Uses Include
Positive control for the study of microtubule binding proteins
Investigation of the the effect of MAPs on microtubule dynamics
Substrate for many protein kinases
A microtubule associated protein (MAP) fraction has been isolated from porcine brain by temperature induced tubulin polymerization followed by ionic exchange chromatography over a phosphocellulose matrix and salt elution (1, 2). The MAP fraction protein is supplied as a white lyophilized powder
Protein purity is determined by scanning densitometry of Coomassie Blue stained protein on a 12% polyacrylamide gel. MAP2 constitutes 70% of the total protein (see Figure 1).
