Proteome analysis

Degradomics can be an excellent tool for biomarker discovery, drug target validation, and assessing protease biology. Proteases form 5-10% of all drug targets and play a critical role in many diseases. Degradomics provides a specific insight in functional proteomics centered around the degradation of proteins. Here we can identify proteases, monitor activity differences in sample groups, and identify cleavage site specificity, inhibitors, substrate, and interactors.

If you’d like to learn more, we are happy to discuss your project and help you get the most out of your degradomics analysis.
