pH-gradient ion-exchange chromatography: an analytical tool for design and optimization of protein separations.

This work demonstrates that a highly linear, controllable and wide-ranged pH-gradient can be generated through an ion-exchange chromatography (IEC) column. Such a pH-gradient anion-exchange chromatography was evaluated with 17 model proteins and found that acidic (pI<6) and basic (pI>8) proteins elute roughly at their pI, whereas neutral proteins (pI 6-8… (More)
