2D-DIGE as a tool in neuroproteomics

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Neuroproteomics encompasses the study of all protein-related dynamics of the nervous system, not only on a morphological level in development and disease but also functional aspects of the process of learning as well as changes in clinical conditions like depression and addiction. Detection of these changes in protein abundance under defined conditions is the field of differential proteome analysis, with two-dimensional difference gel electrophoresis (2D-DIGE) currently being the most comprehensive technique to quantify these changes while retaining information about isoforms and posttranslational modifications. This chapter focusses on technical aspects of 2D-DIGE as well as a brief overview of successful applications of this technique in neuroproteomics.
