Salting-out 101 Salt competes with protein for water. Eventually water binds with salt and proteins form hydrophobic bond with one another and precipitates. Precipitated protein are collected in the order of hydrophobicity. -solubility of protein -Hofmeister Series -temperature -pH (avoid pH at isoelectric point because it will precipitate the protein) Ion-exchange Anionic –negative protein Cationic – positive protein Gradients pH – change the charge of the protein to disrupt the binding to the stationary phase
