Module: PROTEOMICA
-------
1. Introduction. The “Omics” sciences. Expressional, Functional, and Structural Proteomics.
2. Chromatographic methods (bi and multi dimensional) applied to proteome analysis. Multidimensional protein identification technology (MudPIT) and MultiDimensional Liquid Chromatography (MDLC).
3. Electrophoretic methods for proteome analysis. Isoelectrofocusing (carrier ampholytes IEF, and immobilized pH gradient, IPG). Polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, PAGE (SDS-, Native-, and Gradient-PAGE). Two dimensional maps.
4. Sample preparation for proteomic analysis. Cell disruption, removal of interfering substances, protein solubilization, and protein quantification.
5. Pre-fractionation of the sample for the proteome analysis of low abundance proteins. Dynamic range. Differential centrifugation; immunoprecipitation; multi-step extraction of protein; affinity removal (albumin depletion, and Protein Equalizer Technology); and isoelectric focusing based fractionation (Rotofor, and Multi-compartment electrolyzer).
6. Image analysis: PDQuest and other softwares. Comparative proteomic analysis.
7. Mass spectrometry analysis. Mass spectra. Hard (electron impact EI) and soft ionization methods (chemical ionization CI, fast atom bombardment FAB, matrix assisted laser desorption ionization MALDI, and electrospray ionization ESI). Analyzers (magnetic sectors, quadrupole Q, time-of-flight TOF, ion trap IT, and Fourier Transform ion cyclotron resonance FT ICR). Detectors.
8. Tandem mass spectrometry MS/MS. Fragmenting a peptide. Tandem-in-space approach (TripleQ, Q-TOF, and TOF/TOF). Tandem-in-time approach (MALDI-TOF post source decay PSD, and IT).
9. Analysis of mass spectra. Data Base searching softwares and Data Bases for protein identification. Peptide Mass Fingerprinting (PMF), and Tandem MS data.
10. Quantitative proteomic analysis: Difference gel electrophoresis (DIGE), minimal and saturation labeling; stable isotope labeling by amino acid in cell culture (SILAC); isotope coded affinity tags (ICAT); isobaric tags for relative and absolute quantification (iTRAQ); absolute quantification (AQUA); acrylamide d0/d3; enzymatic labeling (H218O/ H216O); label free quantification (surface enhanced laser desorption/ionization SELDI-MS).
11. Post-translational modifications characterization. Glycosylation, nitration and nitrosylation, and phosphorylation. (IMAC; immunoprecipitation; biotin-switch, and other approaches).
12. Applications of proteomic analysis.

Module/Programme news

News for students

There you will find information, resources and services useful during your time at the University (Student’s exam record, your study plan on ESSE3, Distance Learning courses, university email account, office forms, administrative procedures, etc.). You can log into MyUnivr with your GIA login details: only in this way will you be able to receive notification of all the notices from your teachers and your secretariat via email and soon also via the Univr app.

Graduation

Deadlines and administrative fulfilments

For deadlines, administrative fulfilments and notices on graduation sessions, please refer to the Graduation Sessions - Science and Engineering service.

Need to activate a thesis internship

For thesis-related internships, it is not always necessary to activate an internship through the Internship Office. For further information, please consult the dedicated document, which can be found in the 'Documents' section of the Internships and work orientation - Science e Engineering service.

Attendance

As stated in the Teaching Regulations for the A.Y. 2022/2023, attendance is not mandatory. However, professors may require students to attend lectures for a minimum of hours in order to be able to take the module exam, in which case the methods that will be used to check attendance will be explained at the beginning of the module. 
Please refer to the Crisis Unit's latest updates for the mode of teaching.
