Proteomics in Cancer

The proteome is the set of proteins expressed in an instant by a given genome. Among the techniques used to study the proteome, we highlight the two-dimensional gel electrophoresis (2D-E gel) and mass spectrometry. Since it was described by O’Farrell in 1975, the E-2D gel technique has proved a useful tool for characterizing the molecular […]

Edman Degradation

Protein sequencing was (in my humble opinion) one of the milestones to consider for people who work with it. And without it (and many other things), we probably would not have Proteomics. It all starts with the work of a young scientist named Pehr Victor Edman. At that time he had just recognized that proteins […]
