Application Note: Identification of Peanut Allergens Extracted Using Protea® Cell Lysis Kits
3 June 2013

This work demonstrates the ability of Protea cell lysis kits, based on acid labile surfactant chemistries, to effectively extract proteins from peanut samples with very high yield. A proper assessment of individual peanut allergens in these samples is carried out using 1D and 2D gel electrophoresis followed by MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry.
