Development of proteomic methods for analysis of cerebrospinal fluid
Proteomic analysis of body fluids represents a real challenge due to the very large dynamic range of protein concentrations: basically, the vast majority of the protein content is represented by only one or a few proteins, which hinder the detection of low-abundant species. We have been involved in the testing of the Proteominer technology, which represents a powerful tool to go much deeper into the proteome characterization.
