PI(3)P PIP Beads are composed of agarose with 10 nanomoles of bound PI(3)P per mL of beads, enough for several protein binding experiments. Each 1 mL order of PIP Beads includes a small amount of control beads. Larger quantities of Control Beads are also available for purchase.
PIP BeadsTM are designed for use in protein pull-down experiments to identify and characterize lipid binding proteins. Possible applications include the isolation of lipid-binding proteins present in a cell lysate or in a mixture of in vitro translated peptides, for separation by SDS-PAGE and further analysis.
