Proteomics Facility

The Proteomics Facility provides services, self-service equipment, and collaborative research for the detection, characterization, and quantification of biomolecules. The facility labs are located in MBB 1.420 (ICMB) and PHR 1.110 (College of Pharmacy). The facility is supported by the Cancer Prevention Research Institute of Texas Shared Instrumentation Award RP110782 and by institutional funds provided by ICMB, UT-Austin and the College of Pharmacy.

News and Announcements:

New rates in effect starting September 1. See Charges page for more information.

Relative quantitation of peptides/proteins with spectral counting, peak area, or stable isotope labeling by TMT or iTRAQ*
Protein modification analysis for phosphorylation, methylation, acetylation, ubiquitinylation, glycosylation, inhibitor binding, and chemical adduct site determination*

Other MBB lab services/instrumentation:
Edman chemistry N-terminal Sequencing

Self-service instrumentation available:
SDS-PAGE
HPLC and FPLC (4°C or room temperature)
Crystallography robot
Luminometer
MALDI-TOF MS molecular weight determination

When using core services, remember to cite the Proteomics Facility in your publications, and funding sources ES007784 (CRED) and RP110782 (CPRIT) when appropriate, and send the citation to Maria Person. Continued support for the facility depends on documented outcomes.

*If you are interested in collaborating on a protein modification or quantitation project, contact Maria Person.
