An improved method for the purification of acyl carrier protein from Escherichia coli is described. The method consists of four steps: a 2-propanol extraction, batch adsorption to DEAE-cellulose, ammonium sulfate fractionation, and acid precipitation. The purification can be carried out in a few days and yields between 120 and 150 mg of pure acyl carrier protein per kilogram wet weight of cells.
