Hi members,

I have an urgent question for the forum.

I'm doing KMnO4-footprinting experiments and unfortunately, BME 
disturbes the KMnO4 reaction (it is also used to quench the reaction 
later). Since there is BME in the buffers of the proteins used in my 
reactions, I have to get rid of almost all the BME in the protein 

Does anybody now how to do this without damaging the sensitive 

Thank you very much.
