Gel Electrophoresis, High Throughput Separation, Protein Quantification and More

OVERVIEW

ICBR Proteomics & Mass Spectrometry Facility has provided unprecedented tools for fast, accurate, high throughput biomolecular separation and characterization, which are indispensable towards understanding the biological and medical systems. Studying at the protein level allows researchers to investigate how proteins, their dynamics, modifications, and interactions affect cellular processes and how cellular processes and environment affect proteins. The mission of our facility is to provide excellent service and training in proteomics and mass spectrometry. Here we present our capabilities in proteomics, highlighting differential proteomics, which include two-dimensional difference gel electrophoresis (2D-DIGE), isobaric tags for relative and absolute quantitation (iTRAQ), tandem mass tags (TMT), iodoTMT, Stable isotope labeling with amino acids in cell culture (SILAC), quantification of proteins by label-free LC-MS/MS, and the analysis of protein post-translational modifications (PTM).

We have a suite of state-of-the-art mass spectrometers and software available for detailed characterization of proteins and peptides, including post-translational modification analysis and accurate molecular weight determination. To ensure success and maximize productivity, the Proteomics & Mass Spectrometry core offers education, consultation, data processing and reporting, and support of grant application.

A first: Scientists grow plants in soil from the Moon
A first: Scientists grow plants in soil from the Moon from UF/IFAS by Samantha Murray Scientists have grown plants in soil from the Moon, a first in human history and a milestone in lunar and space exploration. In a new paper published in the journal “Communications Biology,” University of Florida researchers showed that plants can successfully sprout and grow in lunar soil. Their study also investigated how plants respond biologically to the Moon’s soil, also known as lunar regolith, which is r...

Rhes protein key in spread of Huntington’s disease in the brain
Rhes protein key in spread of Huntington’s disease in the brain from UF Health By: Bill Levesque Pathogenic proteins help spread many neurodegenerative diseases. How they move between brain cells is often shrouded in mystery. But scientists at Scripps Research’s Florida campus have found that nanotube tunnels that act like roadways capable of transporting cargo between cells can transmit a toxic protein linked to Huntington’s disease from neuron to neuron in the live brains of mouse models. The ...

New COVID test can quickly detect variants
New COVID test can quickly detect variants from UF News University of Florida researchers have invented a test that can determine within 10-15 minutes whether patients test positive for COVID and, if so, which of the five known variants of concern they have. The research, published Saturday in The Lancet’s eBioMedicine, involves the use of a simple heating device and a cellphone. The team also used a new form of CRISPR — a means of finding and targeting a specific section of genetic materi...
