Hydrophobic Chromatography and Its Potential Use in Biotechnology

  • S. Shaltiel


Activation of agarose with CNBr (1) and subsequent coupling with alkylamines results in materials with new adsorption properties (2–7). Homologous series of such materials, identical in all respects except for the length of their attached hydrocarbon chains (Fig. 1), form the basis for a new approach to the resolution, purification and probing of proteins (2–5). This approach —“hydrophobic chromatography” — discriminates between proteins mainly through differences in the lipophilic interactions between the hydrocarbon chains and appropriately-sized hydrophobic pockets or patches in the various proteins.
