Project: High resolution structural analysis of purified HTT samples

Experiment: Large-scale purification of HTT domain constructs

Date completed:­ 2019/04/01

Rationale: Domain fragments of the huntingtin protein are useful reagents for examining protein-protein interaction characteristics of huntingtin and to map interaction interfaces. Stable, monodisperse and pure samples may also be amenable to high resolution structure solution by X-ray crystallography. Previously huntingtin fragments were cloned and screened for expression in small-scale (3 mL) culture experiments. Positive hits were scaled for production as detailed in the table on the next page.   All previous work is described in this post:
