CRAPome Aggregates Contaminant Info For Protein Interactions
Affinity purification combined with mass spectrometry is a popular way to determine protein interaction partners. The problem is that the bait proteins used to find interacting proteins can also snag nonspecific partners. Scientists had not found a good way to benefit from the experience of others who have previously caught such contaminants, but a new online database assembled by a large international team of researchers could help. The cleverly named contaminant repository for affinity purification—that’s . . .
