  • A novel redox buffer consisting of MESNA and diMESNA showed a refolding efficiency comparable to that of GSH / GSSG and prevented loss of the protein's thioester functionality.

  • Moreover, introduction of the MESNA / diMESNA redox couple in the cleavage buffer allowed simultaneous on-column refolding of Ribonuclease A and intein-mediated cleavage to yield Ribonuclease A with a C-terminal MESNA-thioester.
