Solid-liquid interface method (SLIM) : a new crystallization method for proteins

Brostromer, Erik ; Nan, Jie LU ; Li, Lan-Fen and Su, Xiao-Dong LU (2009) In Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications 386(4). p.8-634
Abstract

Despite impressive advances in theories, methods and technologies, crystallization still remains a serious bottleneck in structural determination of macromolecules. Here we present a novel solid-liquid interface method (SLIM) for protein crystallization, based on the pre-adding and drying of a crystallization reagent, and thereafter the dispensing of a protein solution to the dried media to initiate crystallization from the solid-liquid interface. Not only quick and easy to perform, the method also allows for a less concentrated protein solution for setting up crystallization trials.
