  • Traditional protocols for yeast mitochondria isolation/extraction involve a range of centrifugation-based subcellular fractionation procedures. Typically the techniques include spheroplast preparation, glass-bead lysis using a homogenization instrument, differential centrifugation and several density gradient procedures using a variety of gradient media with ultracentrifugation. The procedures are very tedious and time consuming. Here we feature a simple and rapid protocol for yeast mitochondria enrichment. The procedure is gentle and instrument-free. Native mitochondrial proteins can be isolated from yeast in about one hour without ultracentrifugation. This kit contains optimized detergent-free protein extraction buffers. The protein yield is in the range of 150-250 µg/sample. The materials provided are sufficient for 50 extractions.


  • Proteins extracted with this kit can be used for many downstream applications such as SDS-PAGE analysis, Western blotting, IP. ELISA, enzyme activity assays, proteomics and other biochemical analysis.
