As part of its collaboration with ASTON University, CALIXAR, a biotech company specialized in the identification and isolation of functional membrane therapeutic targets and antigens (GPCRs, Ion channels, Transporters, …) will attend the Birmingham European SMALP on April 06-08, 2022.
Afroditi VAITSOPOULOU, PhD student at Aston University (Birmingham, UK), under the supervision of Alice Rothnie and Roslyn Bill joined the CALIXAR team, in Lyon for a few months, to work on the expression and purification of the MRP4 transporter in the framework of the MemTrain collaborative project.
Afroditi will present her poster titled “MRP4 expression, extraction and purification using SMA2000, calixarene-based detergents and common detergents” in which she demonstrates the successful use of SMA molecules and calixarene-based detergents (proprietary and unique reagents commercialized by CALIXAR) to extract the MRP4 protein from the membrane by preserving its integrity.
With over 10 years of experience in the field of protein extraction and stabilization, CALIXAR uses proprietary and unique reagents to preserve the integrity of native membrane proteins.
Alexis Moreno, Project Manager at CALIXAR will also be at Birmingham to discuss this project and to present the solutions proposed by CALIXAR for the extraction and stabilization of membrane proteins.
