One-step purification of rabbit histidine rich glycoprotein by dye-ligand affinity chromatography with metal ion requirement.


A simple method for purification of the histidine rich glycoprotein (rHRG) from rabbit sera was developed. The rHRG was purified by one-step affinity chromatography using the triphenylmethane dye "acid fuchsin" as a specific ligand, which gave an overall yield above 80%. Interestingly, the binding of rHRG to the ligand required the divalent transition-metal… (More)
