Abstract. In response to the rapidly growing field of proteomics, the use of recombinant proteins has increased greatly in recent years. Recombinant hybrids containing a polypeptide fusion partner, termed affinity tag, to facilitate the purification of the target polypeptides are widely used. Many different proteins, domains, or peptides can be fused with the target protein. The advantages of using fusion proteins to facilitate purification and detection of recombinant proteins are well… Expand
Several Affinity Tags Commonly Used in Chromatographic Purification
TLDR
The benefits and drawbacks of several affinity or epitope tags frequently used, including hexahistidine tag, FLAG tag, Strep II tag, streptavidin-binding peptide (SBP) tag, calmodulin-binding proteins (CBP), glutathione S-transferase (GST), maltose-binding protein (MBP), S-tag, HA tag, and c-Myc tag are discussed.

Human glutaredoxin 2 affinity tag for recombinant peptide and protein purification.
TLDR
It is shown that the protein can be purified from crude bacterial extracts by a one-step affinity chromatography on glutathione-Sepharose and that short peptides could be fused to either the N- or C-terminus of Grx2 without affecting its ability to bind to the glutATHione column. Expand
Heparin-binding peptide as a novel affinity tag for purification of recombinant proteins.
TLDR
A novel 34-amino acid heparin-binding affinity tag (HB-tag) is designed for the purification of recombinant proteins expressed in Escherichia coli cells and has been demonstrated to be successfully released from the fusion protein by an appropriate protease treatment to obtain the recombinant target protein in high yields. Expand
Systematic analysis of the expression, solubility and purification of a passenger protein in fusion with different tags.
TLDR
There is a compelling need to design various fusion proteins with different single or combined tags to identify optimized constructions allowing to achieve high levels of expression, solubility and purification of the passenger protein. Expand
A dual protease approach for expression and affinity purification of recombinant proteins
TLDR
The generic strategy described here saves time and effort by removing insoluble aggregates at an early stage in the process while also reducing the tendency of MBP to “stick” to its fusion partners during affinity purification. Expand
Towards the elimination of chromatography in protein purification: Expressing proteins engineered to purify themselves
The development of affinity-tag fusion technology in the mid-1980s provided a simple and convenient method for the purification of arbitrary recombinant proteins through genetic engineering. ThisExpand
Purification Systems Based on Bacterial Surface Proteins
Affinity purification is based on the selective and reversible interaction between two binding partners, of which one is bound to a chromatography matrix and the other may be either a native targetExpand
A Chimeric Affinity Tag for Efficient Expression and Chromatographic Purification of Heterologous Proteins from Plants
TLDR
The Cysta-tag is designed, a new purification tag for immobilized metal affinity chromatography (IMAC) of plant-made proteins based on the protein-stabilizing fusion partner SlCYS8, and may be used to readily purify proteins under native conditions, and then be removed enzymatically to isolate the protein of interest. Expand
A novel peptide tag for detection and purification of recombinant expressed proteins.
TLDR
A unique viral peptide sequence, R-tag, that by blast searches is absent from the commonly expression hosts Arabidopsis thaliana, Escherichia coli, Pichia pastoris and mouse myeloma cell NSO is identified and used to successfully purify recombinant proteins by immunoaffinity procedures. Expand
Expression of intein-tagged fusion protein and its applications in downstream processing
TLDR
This review elucidates the properties ofintein (the mechanism that unravels the intein-based protein splicing), the advantages of an inteIn affinity expression system, the progress of inte in-basedprotein purification procedures, and recent advances in the applications of intEin. Expand

This protocol was adapted to recombinant soluble beta-1,4-galactosyltransferase (rgal-T) and N-glycosylated hisGal-T transiently expressed in COS cells was secreted as a soluble active enzyme and could be purified in one single step by virtue of the His6-tag. Expand
