What Is Proteomics?
ProteomicsAccordian.png

Proteomics is the study of the proteome, or the systematic, large-scale study of a complete set of proteins produced by an organism, tissue, or cell line. A variety of techniques are used to understand the function of proteins and how they interact with each other.

Both protein expression technologies and proteomics tools, instruments and equipment and supplies enable scientists to study and analyze a wide variety of proteins.

What Is a Proteome?
Proteome.png

A proteome is the entire set of proteins expressed by a cell line, tissue, or organism. The same term is also used to describe various proteins produced from certain cell or tissue types at a particular time.

The proteome of an organism is the expression of its genome. While the genome remains stable, the proteome is dynamic and changes in response to internal and external factors.

Why Is Proteomics Important?
ProteomicsImportant.png

Proteomics is important because by studying proteins within cells we can gain more knowledge about how cellular life functions. It is the proteins within the cell that provide the structure, produce energy and allow communication, movement and reproduction.

While knowing and understanding the human genome and genomics is important, this genetic information is static. Proteomics explores the dynamic nature of proteins and expands our understanding of how altered protein expression can result in diseased states. It can be used for prognostic and diagnostic purposes.

Additionally, by understanding protein markers better, more targeted approaches can be used for therapeutic treatment plans and to develop more effective drugs.

By combining proteomics with genomics, biomedical research will be able to advance its development of diagnostic and therapeutic products.

What Tools Are Used in Proteomics?

Proteomics tools commonly used include:

  • Western Blot
    Detects specific protein molecules in a mixture of proteins.
  • Chromatography
    Separates complex mixtures at a high speed and provides high-resolution and high sensitivity.
  • Mass Spectrometry
    Identifies and quantifies proteins by measuring the mass-to-charge ratio of ions.
  • Protein Arrays
    Capable of identifying proteins, protein interactions, antibody-antigen interactions and enzyme-substrate interactions.
  • Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA)
    A plate-based assay capable of detecting and quantifying proteins.
