Molecular Weight Determination of Carbonic Anhydrase with the BI-MwA

by: John McConville, Ph.D. Size-exclusion chromatography (SEC/GPC) has been a useful technique for the determination of molecular weights of proteins. However, its usefulness is limited by the requirement for calibration of the SEC/GPC columns with standards comprising proteins of known molecular weight but which may not be of the same chemistry as the unknown protein. […]
