Specific and efficient selection of serum immunoglobulins, but not other proteins, on T-gel remains difficult. T-gel capacity was determined for different activation conditions and serum loadings. Mass spectrometry analysis was used to identify the proteins found in the flow-through and in the eluted fractions. Alpha-2-macroglobulin and albumin were the major contaminants of the eluates. The influence of the competition between immunoglobulins and the other serum proteins on the adsorption was also studied. Using a serum depleted in immunoglobulins (flow-through of a first chromatography on T-gel), many serum proteins were retained on the T-gel, including albumin. We conclude that T-gel selectivity is less than absolute and may reflect for a large part the experimental conditions of the adsorption.
