What is Proteomics?
Proteomics is the study of genetics at the protein level. It is an analysis of all the proteins found in an organism or specific target organ . Proteomics covers a wide range of topics that includes protein expression levels, interactions and post-translational modification. These topics can be studied using approaches like mass spectrometry and protein microarrays. In my research, I decided to focus on phosphorylation, which is a post-translational modification that can effect protein expression and function.
What is the predicted sites of phosphorylation in VHL?
The high threshold of serine phosphorylation in the begin of the VHL sequence in zebrafish and humans could be key to protein regulation.
