Antibody Purification on the Protein G Column (PDF file) - Protein G rather than Protein A is the column of choice for purifying mouse IgGs from ascites, because mouse IgG1 binds much (much!) better to Protein G, and most mouse mAbs turn out to be IgG1. However, Protein G cannot be used to purify from tissue culture supernatants containing fetal calf serum, because it has a very high affinity for the bovine IgGs in the serum. (Rat IgGs don't bind well to either Protein G or Protein A, and should probably be purified on an FcRn column.)

Coupling Peptides To Resin For Affinity Purification Claire Walczak January 1996 - We use Affigel-10, converting its functional group first to amino and then to iodoacetyl. You can also buy amino resin (it's more expensive) and start at step 6. All washes are performed on a glass-fritted filter funnel sucking until a wet cake is formed. Do not dry the resin completely or you will introduce lots of air bubbles. All reactions up to peptide addition are performed in the funnel by covering the spout with parafilm. This minimizes loss. Assume the affigel is a 50% slurry.
