GST Pull Down Service

The GST (Glutathione S transferase) pull-down has proven to be a powerful technique for studying protein-protein interactions, allowing the identification of unknown proteins that interact with known proteins and confirming suspected interactions, as well as identifying the presence of interactions between two known proteins.

Principle of GST Pull-down

Mechanistically, the probe protein is fused with GST by recombinant technology, and the fusion protein can then be bound to GTH (Glutathione) on the solid support through GST due to affinity attraction. Therefore, proteins that interact with fusion proteins when passing through the column or mixed with the solid phase complex are adsorbed and separated.

GST-pull down mainly consists of the following three parts: (i) construction of prokaryotic expression vector with GST tag by recombinant technology; (ii) expression of the fusion protein with GST tag by prokaryotic expression system; (iii) obtaining high purity fusion protein via the GST affinity purification column and using the GST affinity purification column for protein-to-protein interaction detection; (iv) using WB and MS detection to verify the interaction between proteins or screen for target proteins.

Advantages and Disadvantages of GST Pull-down

Easy to operate
can directly detect interactions
Requires sufficient preparation of soluble recombinant proteins
Only suitable for the detection of stable or strong interactions
Protein interactions may interfere with endogenous proteins

GST Pull-down Applications

Demonstrate possible interactions between two known proteins
Discover unknown molecules that interact with known proteins
