New platform for simple and rapid protein-based affinity reactions

We developed a spongy-like porous polymer (spongy monolith) consisting of poly(ethylene-co-glycidyl methacrylate) with continuous macropores that allowed efficient in situ reaction between the epoxy groups and proteins of interest. Immobilization of protein A on the spongy monolith enabled high-yield collection of immunoglobulin G (IgG) from cell culture… CONTINUE READING
