Proteomics Facility

Proteomics Facility

The proteomics facility was established during 2008.

The facility was funded by DBT-CREBB


The mission of our Proteomics Facility is to provide protein analysis services along with consultation not only for University of Hyderabad community at large, but also for other academia, research organizations and industries. The facility routinely conducts training and workshops for faculty & students apart from refresher courses for degree college lecturers every year. Proteomics facility is equipped with state of the art mass spectrometers; MALDI TOF/TOF and ESI-LCMS Q-TOF.The facility is equipped with robust bioinformatics tools to identify and characterize proteins. The facility has been upgraded with the latest Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) system for protein-protein, protein-small molecules and protein nucleic acid interactions.

Services offered:

Our services include protein identification and protein quantitation from a wide variety of sample types, from simple mixtures (gel spots and bands) to complex mixtures (protein complexes, cell lysates, and plasma). Our principal approach for the analysis of proteins is 'bottom-up' proteomics, where all proteins are proteolytically digested, producing peptide surrogates (signature peptides) of the original proteins. Protein or peptide molecular weight determination by MALDI TOF/TOF or LCMS-ESI Q TOF.
