Solubilisation of Membrane Proteins
A method is provided for solubilising a membrane protein. The method is applied to cellular material comprising the membrane protein and an associated membrane lipid. A copolymer of styrene and maleic acid, wherein the styrene: maleic acid ratio is between 1:2 and 10:1, is mixed with the cellular material to cause the copolymer, lipid and protein to form soluble macromolecular assemblies.
