Gel filtration/Size Exclusion Chromatography Resin (beads) has tiny holes that act like a molecular sieve Proteins that fit through those holes have to go on a detour on the way down the column the smaller the protein, the more often a protein enters a hole (more likely) and the later it comes out the column (at the bottom) larger proteins will still enter holes, but not as often, therefore come out earlier upper limit : o only proteins that actually fit into the holes will be separated, all the proteins that are to large will go straight through and come out together

Unformatted text preview: e.g. if upper limit is 80kDa, all proteins with MW > 80kDa will come out together (at the beginning) lower limit : o the lower limit is determined by probability: the smaller the protein the more likely it will enter a hole (smaller > more holes > longer way). But, at a certain size the likelihood of entering a hole diverges and small Proteins can’t be separated anymore e.g. if lower limit is 20kDa, all proteins with MW < 20kDa will come out together (last), because they all have to travel the longest way...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
