Laboratory of Systems Neurobiology and Medicine


Methods in the Lab


  • Protein purification
  • Antibody production and purification
  • SDS-PAGE and immunoblot
  • High resolution 2D electrophoresis


    We developed a large 2DE gel (93 cm x 103 cm) to separate low abundantl proteins (Oguri et al., Proteomics 2, 666-672, 2002; Inagaki and Katsuta, Curr. Proteomics 1, 35-39, 2004).

  • Sensitive MAS spectrometry (Nomura et al., J. Mass Spectrometry 39, 666-672, 2004).
