Two-dimensional gel electrophoresis followed by mass spectrometry for protein identification is a reliable and reproducible means of sample analysis. A key element in this process is reducing sample complexity, as samples often consist of tens of thousands of proteins in a magnitude of different concentrations.
Agilent 1100 Series liquid chromatography (LC) micro collection/spotting system, a complete software-controlled product, features direct spotting on matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry (MALDI-MS) targets.
BSI Proteomics is able to provide high resolution images of the drug binding site of protein kinases, which provides a more accurate model for rational drug design. Dynamic Crystallization technologies provide structures of kinases.
by Elizabeth Tolchin As part of the Genomics:GTL (formerly Genomes to Life) project, funded by the US Department of Energy, researchers from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Berkeley, Calif., are using phenotype microarrays to rapidly deduce the stress-response pathways in metal- and radionuclide-reducing bacteria.

by Robert Ford A five-year agreement between Mississippi State University (MSU), Starkville, Miss., and Toxin Alert Inc., Toronto, Canada, plans to provide research funding to the university for the development of large-scale antibody production in tobacco plants.
ProXPRESS 2D Proteomic Imaging System features a high-speed CCD-based imaging camera. The system, part of the PerkinElmer High Content Proteomics product suite, identifies and quantifies low abundant and hard-to-see proteins in gels.
Finnigan vMALDI ion source (Thermo Electron Corp.) enhances the Finnigan LTQ linear ion trap mass spectrometer for use in proteomics research.
DTX Series multimode detectors, from Beckman Coulter, combine absorbance, fluorescence and luminescence detection in one instrument.
by Elizabeth Tolchin By developing a novel antibody drug discovery technology, researchers from Texas Tech University, Amarillo, Texas, spawned a start-up firm, now six weeks young. Venture capital firm Emergent Technologies Inc., Austin, Texas, licensed the technology from the university and formed the start-up, Receptor Logic Ltd.
by Elizabeth Tolchin A new bioinformatics tool, the Proteomics RIMS (Research Information Management System), announced by Bruker BioSciences Corp. at this week's Pittcon 2004 conference in Chicago, promises the integration of the instrumentation and data analysis associated with proteomics and structure-based research.
by Chris Dickey, DrPH Looking to extend its reach into academic and small biotechnology laboratories, Beckman Coulter Inc., Fullerton, Calif., introduced a smaller and less expensive version of its Biomek FX liquid handling system at the LabAutomation 2004 meeting in San Jose, Calif.
2-D gel electrophoresis (2DGE) is a widely used protein analysis tool. When it is applied to the separation of basic proteins (pH 7-10), achieving good resolution can be a challenge.
After nearly four decades of advancements in both technology and methodology, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy now plays an important role in
Enabling accelerated processing of complex proteomics data, this streamlined proteomics data
by Elizabeth Tolchin Under the hypothesis that 'conserved coexpression' could serve as an indicator of gene function on a genomic level, a team from Israel developed a model for comparing gene expression data and genomic sequence information across several different species at once.
