The samples of supernatant and flow throughwere concentrated. These lanes show theclear broad bands of the glucanase. There isstill the very broad band in the flow-throughwhat suggests the concentration of the glu-canase was too high to isolate entire protein.
The wash fraction (lane 5) show no visibleband, that means, the target protein bindingwas stable. Each eluate (lane 6, 7) shows oneband of the target protein. This indicates that the Membrane Adsorber unit was reallycompletely saturated with the target protein.
