Highlighted Core Technology of the Month: Proteomics Technologies

  • The Antibody-based Proteomics Core (ABP) (Antibody-Based Proteomics | BCM) at Baylor College of Medicine provides targeted antibody-based proteomic platforms for both validation and protein biomarker discovery, particularly for low abundance regulatory proteins. Services provided include reverse phase protein arrays (RPPA) with > 260 antibodies for total and phosphoproteins of major cell signaling pathways and an epigenetic panel for detection of histone post-translational modifications. Luminex bead technology is also available for multiplex quantitative analysis of intracellular and extracellular signaling proteins including cytokines.
  • The Mass Spectrometry Proteomics Core (MSPC) (Mass Spectrometry Proteomics | BCM) at Baylor College of Medicine provides mass spectrometry (MS) platforms for proteome profiling, characterization of post-translational modifications, and discovery of protein complexes and interactions networks. State-of-the-art Orbitrap mass spectrometers are used for quantification of 3,000-10,000 proteins in single samples or tandem mass tag multiplexed format. The core also offers development of targeted MS methods for sensitive and precise quantification of specific proteins. All services include support for sample preparation and bioinformatics analyses.

Looking for a particular piece of equipment?

Did you know that the GCC has a Shared Equipment and Resource Committee (SERC) composed of the Directors/Leaders in equipment inventory and acquisition from each of the GCC institutions?  If you are looking for a particular piece of equipment, please email Suzanne Tomlinson, and the committee members will work together to try to locate it and introduce you to the PI who owns/administers it.

GCC Shared Equipment and Cores

Shared core facilities are an important benefit to members of the GCC research community.

GCC has acquired major equipment for shared use, available to Texas Medical Center researchers, thanks to the generosity, commitment and vision of philanthropic donors such as the John S. Dunn Foundation. Additionally, GCC member institutions have each designated shared core facilities within their own institutions (via a GCC inter-institutional memorandum of understanding), providing a large array of equipment available to GCC researchers at internal rates.

These leveraged shared resources enhance collaborative research, training and grant proposals and provide increased opportunities for inter-institutional cooperation and growth. (Photos welcome!) Please contact Suzanne Tomlinson, PhD, Director, GCC Research Consortia, at smtomlin@rice.edu for more information.
