Abstract: X-ray crystallography is still the most prominent technique in use to decipher the 3D structures of membrane proteins. For successful crystallization, sample quality is the most important parameter that should be addressed. In almost every case, highly pure, monodisperse, and stable protein sample is a prerequisite. Vapor diffusion is in general the method of choice for obtaining crystals. Here, we discuss a detailed protocol for overproduction and purification of the inner-membrane multidrug transporter AcrB …
