Nanodisc MSP Mouse/Rat


Nanodisc

Mouse/Rat nanodisc membrane scaffold proteins (MSPs)

Membrane scaffold proteins (MSPs) are typically used for the reconstitution of already isolated proteins. A variety of membrane scaffold proteins (MSPs) are available that can be assembled to nanodiscs of different sizes to accommodate proteins with varying numbers of transmembrane domains. As human MSPs might interfere with certain applications such as immunization of mice or rats with human antigens, we offer animal homologue scaffold proteins. For use in cell-free expression reactions, pre-assembled mouse and rat nanodiscs are available.

Why Membrane scaffold proteins?

  • Suitable for immunization in mice or rats
  • Stable, lyophilized protein preparations in convenient aliquots
  • Can be combined with different phospholipids
  • Detailed protocols and expert support provided

A.DMPC: Reconstitution of membrane proteins into nanodisc using his-tagged MSP1D1 protein and DMPC phospholipids
 
 
  1. Prepare a membrane protein solution containing your target protein of interest. As a starting point, use 200 μL of the protein solution at a concentration of 2-5 mg/mL. Note: Depending on the target protein, required protein concentrations might be up to 20 mg/mL.
  2. Determine the molar concentration of target protein solution, using the molecular weight and extinction coefficient e.g. at 280 nm.
  3. Calculate the required amount of MSP protein to be 20 times the molar quantity of the target protein.
  4. Calculate the required amount of DMPC to be 80 times the molar quantitiy of the MSP protein (or 1,600 times the molar quantity of the target protein). Example: Target protein has a MW of 45,000 Da. Therefore, 500 μg protein in a 200 μL solution corresponds to 11 nmol of target protein in the 1 ml reaction mix. To obtain a 20 fold excess of MSP protein, use 220 nmol of MSP, i.e. 5.57 mg (MW 25.309 g/mol). For an 80 fold excess of phospholipid, use 17.6 μmol or 11.92 mg of DMPC (MW 677.3 g/mol).
  5. Resuspend the DMPC in 500 μL ND Lipid Buffer and incubate for 20 min at 37°C to fully solubilize the phospholipid.
  6. Resuspend the MSP protein in 500 μL ND Protein Buffer in a 2 mL microtube. Add the target protein, solubilized in detergent solution. Note: The protein was lyophilized from a solution containing 4 mg/ml protein in 20 mM Tris pH 7.4, 100 mM NaCl, 0.5 mM EDTA.
  7. Add the DMPC solution to the MSP and membrane protein solution, and incubate the entire mix at 4°C for 2 h.
  8. During the incubation, equilibrate 2.5 g biobeads or similar adsorbant in ND Protein Buffer according to the manufacturer's instructions. Degas the solution by ultrasound to remove any oxygen solubilized in the biobead solution.
  9. Add the protein/DMPC mix to 750 μL of the biobead solution and incubate at 4°C on an end over end shaker for 8-12 h
  10. Spin the solution at 10-12,000 x g for 2 min, and transfer the supernatant to a fresh tube. Add 750 μL of fresh equilibrated biobead solution and incubate at 4°C on an end over end shaker for 8-12 h.
  11. Repeat step 10 at least one more time to ensure complete detergent removal.
  12. Remove the supernatant, and filter the nanodisc mix through a 0.45 micron filter to remove precipitates that might have formed during incubation.
  13. Apply the nanodisc mix on a gel filtration column. Apply the mix in several portions if necessary. Monitor absorbance at 280 nm.
  14. Collect fractions of ca. 500 μL size, and analyze the samples by SDS PAGE. MSP proteins have an apparent molecular mass of around 20 kDa. Note: Optionally, analysis of fractions in the western blot can be done e.g. with Penta His antibodies which recognize the his-tagged MSP1D1 protein.
  15. Concentrate the elution fractions which contain the nanodiscs with inserted membrane protein using protein concentrators.
  16. Freeze the nanodiscs containing membrane proteins at -80°C in a solution containing 10% glycerol for future use, or use them directly in the desired experiment.

 
   
B.POPC: Reconstitution of membrane proteins into nanodisc using his-tagged MSP1D1 protein and POPC phospholipids
 
 
  1. Prepare a membrane protein solution containing your target protein of interest. As a starting point, use 200 μL of the protein solution at a concentration of 2-5 mg/mL. Note: Depending on the target protein, required protein concentrations might be up to 20 mg/mL.
  2. Determine the molar concentration of target protein solution, using the molecular weight and extinction coefficient e.g. at 280 nm.
  3. Calculate the required amount of MSP protein to be 20 times the molar quantity of the target protein.
  4. Calculate the required amount of POPC to be 55 times the molar quantitiy of the MSP protein (or 1,100 times the molar quantity of the target protein). Example: Target protein has a MW of 45,000 Da. Therefore, 500 μg protein in a 200 μL solution corresponds to 11 nmol of target protein in the 1 ml reaction mix. To obtain a 20 fold excess of MSP protein, use 220 nmol of MSP, i.e. 5.57 mg (MW 25.309 g/mol). For a 55 fold excess of phospholipid, use 12.1 μmol or 9.2 mg of POPC (MW 760 g/mol).
  5. Resuspend the POPC in 500 μL ND Lipid Buffer II and incubate for 20 min at 37°C to fully solubilize the phospholipid.
  6. Resuspend the MSP protein in 500 μL ND Protein Buffer in a 2 mL microtube. Add the target protein, solubilized in detergent solution. Note: The protein was lyophilized from a solution containing 4 mg/ml protein in 20 mM Tris pH 7.4, 100 mM NaCl, 0.5 mM EDTA.
  7. Add the POPC solution to the MSP and membrane protein solution, and incubate the entire mix at 4°C for 2 h.
  8. During the incubation, equilibrate 2.5 g biobeads or similar adsorbant in ND Protein Buffer according to the manufacturer's instructions. Degas the solution by ultrasound to remove any oxygen solubilized in the biobead solution.
  9. Add the protein/POPC mix to 750 μL of the biobead solution and incubate at 4°C on an end over end shaker for 8-12 h.
  10. Spin the solution at 10-12,000 x g for 2 min, and transfer the supernatant to a fresh tube. Add 750 μL of fresh equilibrated biobead solution and incubate at 4°C on an end over end shaker for 8-12 h.
  11. Repeat step 10 at least one more time to ensure complete detergent removal.
  12. Remove the supernatant, and filter the nanodisc mix through a 0.45 micron filter to remove precipitates that might have formed during incubation.
  13. Apply the nanodisc mix on a gel filtration column. Apply the mix in several portions if necessary. Monitor absorbance at 280 nm.
  14. Collect fractions of ca. 500 μL size, and analyze the samples by SDS PAGE. MSP proteins have an apparent molecular mass of around 20 kDa. Note: Optionally, analysis of fractions in the western blot can be done e.g. with Penta His antibodies which recognize the his-tagged MSP1D1 protein.
