Protein Discovery's YPX Yeast Protein Extraction Kit does not use mechanical disruption to break open the tough cell walls of yeast.
According to the company, using the YPX kit is faster than carrying out
conventional yeast lysis procedures used for protein extraction, and total
protein yield is higher. The kit protocol is simple and economical, and
offers substantial usability and cost benefits to researchers who wish to
carry out experiments on many yeast cultures simultaneously. The kit
extracts the entire yeast proteome with nearly complete efficiency, and is
uniquely compatible with quantitative yeast proteomics workflows which would
otherwise be complicated by day-to-day and lab-to-lab variations in protein
The economical YPX Yeast Protein Extraction Kit contains sufficient material
to extract proteins from 150 grams of spun-down, wet cell pellet yeast
culture harvests. Starting material can be frozen or freshly harvested.
