I don't suppose anyone knows how to purify monomeric or G actin in gram
amounts? An immobilised monomeric actin affinity column is one of the
few ways of cleaning up DNase to make it totally protease and RNase free
but one needs a lot of actin for a decent sized column so buying it from
Sigma is not an option. 

The problem with being on the cutting edge is that you occasionally get 
sliced from time to time....
