  • Continuous multichamber disc-stack centrifuge. The bowl contains a
    number of parallel discs providing a large clarifying surface with a small sedimentation distance. The sludge (cells) is removed through
  • This flow chart is more simplified than the other one. What do you think?
    For “separation graphic” show image of the chromatographic apparatus instead of a box.
    Combine fractions box: Graphic of little tubes pouring into a bigger beaker.
    We need to fit in a short text block with a description of the steps in order using numbers to label the steps.
    Show cartoon of microbial cells or tissue.
    Break the cells
    Have colors which show cellular membranes and junk contrasting with the proteins into solution.
  • User clicks the PLOT VALUES button.
    Animation: A graph grows.
  • After the animation ends
    The next appears and the user is prompted to discard the fractions that don’t belong by clickin on the tubes.
    Go to next screen to see what it might look like.
    Should the A280 value table go away? And just leave the profile to “declutter” the screen.
    Peter feels strongly that they should not be encouraged to throw away at this point. Perhaps set aside would be a better term, or eliminate altogether.
  • they are prompted to perfom an enzyme activity assay on the remaining tubes.
    They are prompted to click the “Enzyme Assay” button.
    Go to next screen to see results.
  • Show the color of activity tapers off in intensity.
    Go to next screen.
    Since so few assays use color, Peter would like these to be absorbance values.
  • Creates a gentle squeezing action to move fluid through flexible tubing.
    In this example three rollers on rotating arms pinch the tube against an arc and move the fluid along. There are usually three or four sets of rollers
  • Should these link to a Glossary? I don’t think so.
    The student should not worry if they don’t understand the techniques at this point. This is just to introduce some terminology in context.
    Is the table a good idea? If so, it needs to be more complete.
    JB Table is a good idea - we don’t want the students to consider SDS PAGE to be a purification technique, though, so I removed it from the table.
  • More background content needed? Theory of it?
    We need the info on the proteins.
    Should the proteins all be the same size?
  • Students click on “run column”
    Go to next slide to see results.
  • Just a next button?
    I might have gotten the charges mixed up. Let’s make sure we get this straight.
    We might need a legend (or something of the kind) on every page???
  • Do we need more content on what is size? How is it measure? MW.
    Pick real numbers is Kd correct?
    Show them all repeated together.
    Should these proteins be more blob like than perfect circles?
    Each color represents a different size/charge.
    Perhaps we should develop a little “protein” profile next to each blob.
    Protein 1.
    60 kD
    I think that we should make it so that we make one of the proteins the one that the student wants to purify.
    In both Gel filtration and Ion exchange, let’s make it so that neither method works.
    The final point we can make is that you have to do both separation methods in sequence.
