Mycobacterium tuberculosis, strain CDC1551 whole cell lysate contains proteins, lipids and carbohydrates present within the bacterial cell.

A culture was grown to late log phase in glycerol-alanine-salts medium and inactivated by gamma irradiation. Cells were suspended in PBS buffer containing 8 mM EDTA, proteinase inhibitors, DNase, and RNase, and disrupted by French Press until approximately 90% breakage was obtained. The lysate was centrifuged to pellet the unbroken cells and the cleared supernatant was removed. The protein content of the whole cell lysate was quantified using the BCA protein assay.

Each vial of whole cell lysate contains approximately 10 mg of protein provided in 10 mM ammonium bicarbonate.
