A step-by-step tour through the complete process of doing proteomics. With easy-to-follow instructions, complete with many helpful hints and explanations, leading investigators and pioneers in the field show how to make protein extracts, reproducibly run them on 2-D gels, detect them, analyze the data, and precisely identify each protein. The book covers the latest methods of using carrier ampholytes in the 1st dimension, casting and running immobilized pH gradient 2-D gels, MALDI-TOF-based peptide mapping, automated tandem mass spectrometry, and nanoelectrospray ionization technology. For the 2nd dimension, there are methods for running flatbed or vertical gels and for protein detection using autoradiography, and Coomassie, silver, and reversible metal-chelate stains. 2-D Proteome Analysis Protocols is the most complete guide for using proteomics to answer biological questions.
Our readers will find in this book with its 55 chapters, written by 78 highly well-trained specialists, all they need to come to a good result, going out from the theory of the subject to the precise description of the protocols, the instrumentation, to additive notes, the problems and the eventual difficulties. In one word, an excellent and practical book. - Cellular and Molecular Biology ...There are 55 chapters covering everything you really need to know to get you to speed in the analysis of the proteome. I really liked the layout of each chapter with a pithy introduction followed by materials and methods sections...an absolute must for the proteomic laboratory. - Microbiology Today ...the book covers practical aspects , is well documented, and clearly written ... recommended for researchers in the field. This collection of protocols is an invaluable starting point for people embarking on attempts to develop new proteomes. - FEBS Letters The wealth of techniques and helpful hints presented in this book should be useful to both neophytes and advanced researchers engaged in the area of high resolution 2-D protein electrophoresis. - Analytical Biochemistry
