Collaborations and services
The MS lab is open for collaboration with other groups and provides services for protein identification, analysis of post translational modifications, and investigations of complete proteomes. Other projects are possible. We also offer consultations and advice for the experimental design of MS-experiments.
Instructions for protein identification
Samples to be analyzed:
Usually 0.1 to 1 pmol protein (5 to 50 ng of a 50 kDa protein) are sufficient for identification. Ideally, proteins have been separated in an acrylamide gel and were stained with Coomassie or silver. Please, fill out the sample form (PDF) and provide the complete gel or a picture of the gel where the bands of interest are indicated by numbers or names.
