Development of a Fast Organic Extraction-Precipitation Method for Enhanced Purification of Functional Elastin-like Polypeptides

Time: 2:00 pm
day: Day Two


  • Explore a highly time and material-efficient method that has been developed for purifying a broad range of elastin-like polypeptide (ELP) constructs
  • Learn how this method has been shown to be effective for purifying several different ELP fusions whose functionality has been retained
  • Assess how in addition to the greatly reduced effort and cost of this purification strategy, this technique can reduce lipopolysaccharide contamination to levels that enable in vivo experiments with the isolated ELP construct
