The purpose of this work was the chemical characterization of variants of the recombinant human brain derived neurotrophic factor (rHu-BDNF), expressed in Escherichia coli. This paper also addresses the question of the in vitro activity of these variants. Chemical characterization of the variants employed peptide mapping using Glu-C protease and cyanogen(More)
Recently it has been established that low molecular weight displacers can be successfully employed for the purification of proteins in hydrophobic interaction chromatography (HIC) systems. This work investigates the utility of this technique for the purification of an industrial protein mixture. The study involved the separation of a mixture of three(More)
This work investigates the utility of RPLC displacement chromatography for the purification of recombinant brain derived neurotrophic factor (rHu-BDNF) from its variants and E. coli. protein (ECP) impurities. The closely associated variants (six in total) differ by one amino acid from the native BDNF and thus pose a challenging separation problem. Several(More)
Displacement chromatography of proteins was successfully carried out in both hydrophobic interaction and reversed-phase chromatographic systems using low-molecular weight displacers. The displacers employed for hydrophobic displacement chromatography were water soluble, charged molecules containing several short alkyl and/or aryl groups. Spectroscopy was(More)
