Free University of Bozen - Bolzano

Laboratory for Bio-Organic Chemistry and Bio-Crystallography

Description

In the laboratory GM Escherichia coli is used to produce proteins from Erwinia amylovora to be studied by protein X-ray crystallography. The crude extract from the bacterial cultures is loaded onto chromatography columns for the purification of the proteins under investigation. The pure proteins are then crystallized to solve their structure at the atomic level.

Research Focus

Purification and crystallization of proteins mainly involved in Erwinia amylvora pathogenicity.

Main Instrumentation

  • Akta purifier for protein chromatography;
  • Spectrophotometer
  • Incubator for crystal growth
  • Viaflo multichannel electronic pipette
  • Microbiology laminar flow hood.
