Thermo Scientific Pierce Glutathione Magnetic Beads provide a simple, rapid and reliable method to purify glutathione S-transferase (GST) fusion proteins from crude cell lysate prepared from bacteria, yeast, or mammalian cells.

Features of Glutathione Magnetic Beads:

High-performance beads—non-aggregating, silanized, iron oxide, paramagnetic microparticles provide exceptional uniformity for automated HTS applications
Stable affinity ligand—glutathione is covalently immobilized to particles, ensuring leach-resistance and clean purification products
High capacity—binding capacity is sufficient for both routine and demanding magnetic separation procedures

The high-performance, iron oxide, superparamagnetic particles are validated and optimized for use with high-throughput magnetic platforms, such as the Thermo Scientific KingFisher 96 and KingFisher Flex Instruments, but the beads also enable premium performance for simple benchtop applications using an appropriate magnetic stand.

Glutathione S-transferase (GST) is a protein (220 amino acids in length) that is commonly added to the end of recombinant proteins to aid in their purification or detection. Glutathione is composed of three amino acids (Glu-Cys-Gly) and is sometimes abbreviated as (GSH). To make an affinity support, glutathione is immobilized through its central carbon, preserving the essential structure necessary for efficient GST binding. Addition of reduced glutathione in a physiologic buffer is sufficient to competitively displace (elute) and recover the GST fusion protein from the immobilized glutathione.
