We are getting close to the midpoint of the summer and my project is well underway. With another week passed, I have more purifications to share. Again, I was attempting to purify proteins we think might interact with the huntingtin protein in neuronal cells. This time around was a little less successful than previous posts, with the attempted purification of UBE2K, HAP1, and NEDD4L; sadly, only UBE2K was able to be successfully purified. These purifications followed the same general procedure that was detailed in last week’s post. To see a full outline of the methods used to attempt to purify these proteins, please visit my Zenodo.
