I'd like to lyse cells with digitonin, but I'm not clear on the
preparation of the digitonin itself. I note that some people use Aldrich
digitonin, and go through a fairly elaborate preparation (either
recrystallization, or preparation one week in advance followed by letting
it sit and filtering out crystals, I think). Others don't make any
comments about special preparation. I note that Sigma sells two forms of
digitonin - one is noted 'for aqueous preparations'.
Does anyone have experience with digitonin? Comments on preparation,
Thanks for any help.
