Isolation of Inner Membrane Vesicles from Escherichia coli by Using an Affinity Tag
Authors:  Gang Li and Kevin D. Young, date: 10/20/2012, view: 7224, Q&A: 0
This protocol was developed in a project aimed to identify the inner membrane proteins localizing to cell poles in Escherichia coli (E. coli). By using a known polar protein Tar as a tag, we isolated pole-derived inner membrane ...
