Affinity chromatography on Ni-nitrilotriacetic acid agarose was used to purify human mu-opioid receptors overexpressed in Sf9 cells. We introduced a tag of 6 consecutive histidines at its carboxyl terminus for easy purification of recombinant proteins. The binding activity and identification of the purified receptor were determined by receptor binding assay, SDS-PAGE and Western blotting analysis. This procedure used in the paper offer an easy and fast route to the purification of recombinant human mu-opioid receptors.
