Physical and chemical degradation of therapeutic proteins is a critical problem that can occur during production, purification, and storage. Such modifications can affect protein immunogenicity leading to serious consequences if the protein is being used as a therapeutic. Chromatograms comparing native to oxidized alpha interferon were overlaid to visualize chromatographic differences; oxidation of intact Interferon-alpha was performed by treating with 3% hydrogen peroxide and 50 mM sodium citrate pH 4.4 at 45°C for 120 min.

Overlaid chromatographs of the intact versus oxidized alpha interferon clearly show good selectivity between the two samples; oxidized interferon elutes earlier than the intact protein and has a dramatically tailing peak. While both the C4 and C18 phases both had good resolution, the 3µm C18 clearly showed better performance than all other phases tested. These results indicate that the Jupiter media is an excellent solution with the required selectivity for quantitating very low levels of oxidized protein in less than 15 minutes.
