Analytical- and preparative-scale separation of molecular variants of alpha-fetoprotein by anion-exchange chromatography on Monobead resins.

A rapid and reliable purification procedure is described that is useful for both analytical detection and quantitative recovery of milligram amounts of individual molecular variants of mouse alpha-fetoprotein ( AFP). The appropriate separation conditions were developed with an analytical-size Mono Q anion-exchange column linked to an automated Fast Protein Liquid Chromatography system. Effective separations of fetal-derived AFP variants was accomplished within 20 min under mild conditions with an L-histidine buffer. Employing the optimal separation conditions established on the Mono Q HR 5/5 column we upscaled the procedure by using a preparative Mono Q HR 16/10 column in order to obtain milligram quantities of each molecular variant of AFP. Seven distinct isomeric forms of AFP could be recovered on the preparative anion exchanger in a highly reproducible manner. Each of the seven protein peaks eluted from the Mono Q column were confirmed to be distinct isoforms of AFP by isoelectric focusing and Western blotting developed with monospecific anti- AFP antisera. This method in its scaled up version offers the benefit of providing milligram quantities of immunochemically pure AFP isomers for structure and function studies.[1]
