Mammalian Tissue Protein Extraction Reagent is a ready-to-use Western blot related reagent solution used for efficient extraction of total soluble protein in nondenatured state from animal tissues by homogenization and cell lysis utilizing a dialyzable mild detergent at low concentration, for maximal protein solubilization and minimal interference with protein biological activity enabling direct use in downstream analysis.


Extraction of tissue proteins being an essential step in the process of protein sample preparation is critical to successful protein analysis. Successful tissue protein extraction requires efficient cell lysis and protein solubilization, while preserving protein integrity and immunoreactivity. The varying tissue composition in different tissue samples implies different approaches for efficient and homogenous tissue protein extraction. The Mammalian Tissue Protein Extraction Reagent was designed for use with all tissues, independent of mechanical extraction methods. A mild nondenaturing and easily dialyzable detergent is added to the solution that aids in dissolving cell membranes and enhances solubilization of total protein without compromising function, and the neutral pH and salt concentration of the reagent enable more efficient extraction from cellular compartments yielding homogeneous lysates. The produced cell lysates are directly compatible with reporter gene expression assays (luciferase, beta-galactosidase, chloramphenicol acetyl transferase, CAT, alkaline phosphatase), protein kinase assays (PKA, PKC, tyrosine kinase), phosphatase assays (general phosphatases, tyrosine phosphatases), immunoassays ( Western blots, ELISAs, RIAs, immunoprecipitation), Coomassie-Blue and silver staining, protein purification procedures, electrophoresis, folding studies, chromatographic studies, DNA-protein interaction assays (gel-shift assays), and many other downstream applications.

Additional Materials Required

• Protease inhibitor (Product No. AR1182) and phosphatase inhibitor (Product No. AR1183)

• 2mL microcentrifuge tubes

• Tissue homogenizer

• Microcentrifuge capable of spinning at 10,000 x g

Procedure for Tissue Lysis

Note: Pre-chill an appropriate volume of Mammalian Tissue Protein Extraction Reagent at 4°C. If desired, add protease inhibitor and phosphatase inhibitor to the lysis buffer immediately before use.

1. Place the fresh tissue into chilled PBS and rinse several times. Mince the tissue into small pieces.

2. Add Mammalian Tissue Protein Extraction Reagent to the tissue at 10:1. (i.e., Add 10 mL chilled lysis buffer per gram of tissue.) Use a smaller volume of reagent if a more concentrated protein extract is required.

3. Homogenize for several minutes at high speed until no tissue chunks remain.

4. Incubate on ice for 30 minutes.

5. Centrifuge at ~10000 x g for 10 minutes.

6. Transfer supernatant to a new tube for further analysis.


• All steps of protein lysis should be operated on ice or at 4°C.

• Use BCA Protein Assay kit (Product No. AR0146) to quantify lysed proteins. Bradford Protein Assay kit is not recommended.

Can AR0101 extract protein from bone tissues?

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-11-27


For extracting protein from Bone tissues, AR0105 RIPA Lysis Buffer is better than Mammalian Tissue Protein Extraction Reagent (AR0101).

Does AR0101 also work with formalin fixed tissue?

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-07-03


The Mammalian Tissue Protein Extraction Reagent AR0101 cannot work with formalin fixed tissue. The fixed tissue proteins are cross-linked, and the detergent in the extraction reagent cannot dissolve the cross-linked protein, and the extraction effect will be not good.

Does AR0101 work on formulin fixed tissues?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-04-09


AR0101 cannot work with formulin fixed tissues. The fixed tissue proteins are cross-linked, and the detergent in the extraction reagent cannot dissolve the cross-linked protein, and the extraction effect will be not good. We have not received any other customer feedback regarding using this reagent on formalin fixed tissue.

Boster Scientific Support

Answered: 2019-04-09


The description of AR0101 says it is used for the extraction of soluble proteins but on your western blot it is shown that the plasma membrane proteins which are usually insoluble are also extracted by the buffer. Do you have more information on this?

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-03-06


Mammalian Tissue Protein Extraction Reagent AR0101 is mainly used for extraction of total soluble protein in nondenatured state from animal tissues. However, it can also work for single or two transmembrane proteins.
