Course objectives
This practical course is focused on protein expression and purification (cytochrome b5 and/or c). It is possible to express an alternative protein of student's choice; however, the student has to discuss this with the head of this course.

After successful passing of this laboratory course the students should be able to
- list and describe basic operations during protein expression
- apply these methods for a generic protein.
  • 1) cell-growth and OD monitoring
  • 2) centrifugation and sonication
  • 3) vertical and horizontal ELFO
  • 4) purification of the expressed protein using liquid chromatography
  • The student(s) will prepare all buffers and media as well as gels as a part of this course.
  • The protocols and other materials will be provided handed to the student during the first informative course.
  • Pollock, W.B.R., Rosell, F.I., Twitchett, M.B., Dumont, M.E. & Mauk, A.G. (1998) Bacterial expression of a mitochondrial cytochrome c. Trimethylation of lys72 in yeast iso-1-cytochrome c and alkaline conformational transition. Biochemistry 37, 6124-6131.
Teaching methods
laboratory practice, with continuous checking of the students' preparedness via discussion
Assessment methods
In this practical course, the student is awarded graded credit after a completion of the course with 100% participation with respect to the student's understanding of the process of protein expression.
