Abstract:A rapid and accurate method for the estimation of protein concentration is essential in many fields of protein study. The Lowry method ( Chapter 1 in vol. 1 of this series) has been widely used, but is susceptible to interference from a wide range of compounds commonly present in biological extracts. Although interference can be avoided by trichloracetic acid precipitation of the protein prior to assay, this lengthens the procedure.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
