UltraSensitive Protein Detection Unit (USPDU) focuses on the
development of new techniques aimed at the specific detection of
proteins. Goals are assays which allow a highly versatile, sensitive
and/or fast detection.
We are most specialized in the areas of fluorescence and time-resolved
fluorescence (phosphorescence) techniques and their application for
Furthermore, the rational design of enzymes and their use for protein
detection is a main interest of our group.
following techniqes are established in the group: peptide
synthesis, fluorescence labeling including
time-resolved fluorescence and FRET, 1D- and 2D-gels, mass spectrometry
(Orbitrap with ETD, MALDI-TOF, ESI), HPLC, recombinant protein
purification, protein modifications, side-specific coupling of agents
to proteins and peptides.
