Hi, My name is Isaac, I just entered the field of biology. I have been
trying to express human calmodulin in E.coli cells, and tried a binding
assay for its activities but it doesn't work, can anyone give me some
My CaM extraction procedures:
1. express Calmodulin-CFP-GST fusion in DH5a, 37 degrees, HB
broth+ampicillin for 24 hours.
2. I sonicated the cells in Tris buffer
3. I span down the cell debris, and take the lysate to check for CaM
What is the commonly used assay to test CaM binding to peptide? and how
do we usually get CaM working? I sorta recall that CaM folds really
well... so i don't think it would be a folding problem..
Thank you very much
