Protein solubilization methods. Saline swabs. Fractionation and precipitation techniques. Filtration, dialysis, sample concentration. Spectroscopic techniques. Properties of electromagnetic radiation. Light-matter interaction. States and processes involved in the phenomena of absorption, emission and decay. Absorption spectroscopy in ultraviolet and visible. Qualitative and quantitative aspects of light absorption. Colorimetric and spectroscopic methods applied to the determination of protein concentration. Spectrophotometers. Fluorescence and emission spectroscopy. Intrinsic and extrinsic fluorophores. Green fluorescent protein Spectrofluorimeters. Fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET). Circular dichroism. Chromatographic techniques. Principles of chromatography. The chromatogram. Parameters that determine the chromatographic performance. Van Deemter equation. Column chromatography: ion exchange, molecular exclusion, affinity, hydrophobic interaction and their applications. Electrophoretic techniques. General principles and electrophoretic mobility. Support materials. Nucleic acid electrophoresis. Protein electrophoresis. SDS PAGE. Electrophoresis in native conditions. Protein coloring on gel. Protein blotting (western blotting). Isoelectrofocusing. Basics of: Capillary electrophoresis. Two-dimensional electrophoresis gel.
------------------------
MM: laboratorio
------------------------
1. Determination of the concentration of an unknown protein by absorption at 280 nm and by Bradford colorimetric method. 2. Determination of the kinetic parameters, Michaelis-Menten constant, turnover number, and inhibition constant of the acid phosphatase enzyme using the Lineweaver-Burk graphical linearization method. 3. Determination of the absorption spectrum of the pyridine coenzyme NADH (reduced form) and determination of the molar extinction coefficient of NADPH. 4. Determination of the molecular weight of an unknown protein by molecular exclusion chromatography. 5. Protein separation by electrophoresis under denaturing conditions (SDS-PAGE) followed by visualization of the bands by Coomassie Blue staining 6. Transfer of proteins onto the nitrocellulose membrane by electroblotting followed by immunodetection of the proteins for the identification of one or more proteins by exploiting the specificity of binding with an antibody (WESTERN BLOT).

Attendance

As stated in point 25 of the Teaching Regulations for the A.Y. 2021/2022, 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.
