A simple time-and labor-saving one-step procedure suitable for analytical-, semipreparative-, and preparative-scale preparation of bacteriocins and other cationic antibacterial peptides (for example as lysozyme) has been developed. Suspensions of bacterial cells, other colloidal-and fast-particle materials, and dissolved anionic molecules passed through the column; however, cationic bacteriocins were separated by chromatography. The purity of the target substance at more than 97% was achieved

A many-fold concentration increase was achieved for bacteriocins, lysozyme, and bacitracin (a commercial antibiotic) in comparison with the starting solutions (see the text below). In the experiments, homemade cation-exchange columns have been used. The columns have been prepared by the grafting of glass fibers with a diameter of 0.2 μm. In this paper, applications of a new type of liquid chromatography-colloidal high-performance liquid chromatography (CHPLC)-were demonstrated.
