The Protein Chemistry Core is a centralized laboratory that provides investigators at UTMB with state-of-the-art analytical tools including N-terminal protein sequencing, internal protein sequencing, amino acid analysis, DNA sequencing, and carbohydrate analysis at reasonable cost to the investigator. Data is made available to investigators in a timely manner.
Quality control is provided by utilizing appropriate internal and external standards as recommended by instrument manufacturers. Amino acid compositional analysis is further assessed using a synthetic peptide containing one of each 20 amino acids typically found in proteins. All analyses conducted utilize the latest manufacturers analytical software packages.
