LPAT Protein Complex Characterization
The LPAT provides a complete service protein complex characterization pipeline. This service works in conjunction with the Protein Expression Laboratory (PEL), who clone the protein of interest into an expression vector. The vector is transfected and expressed in an appropriate cell line followed by immunoprecipitation of the protein complex and analysis using mass spectrometry. Validation studies of interesting novel protein interactions are then conducted in conjunction with the Image Analysis Laboratory (IAL).
