Low-Abundance Proteome Discoveryaddresses the most critical challenge in biomarker discovery and progress: the identification of low-abundance proteins. The book describes an original strategy developed by the authors that permits the detection of protein species typically found in very low abundance and that may yield valuable clues to future discoveries. Known as combinatorial peptide ligand libraries, these new methodologies are one of the hottest topics related to the study of proteomics and have applications in medical diagnostics, food quality, and plant analysis. The book is written for university and industry scientists starting proteomic studies of complex matrices (e.g., biological fluids, biopsies, recalcitrant plant tissues, foodstuff, and beverage analysis), researchers doing wet chemistry, and graduate-level students in the areas of analytical and biochemistry, biology, and genetics.

  • Covers methodologies for enhancing the visibility of low-abundance proteins which, until now, has been the biggest challenge in biomarker progress
  • Includes detailed protocols that address real-life needs in laboratory practice
  • Addresses all applications, including human disease, food and beverage safety, and the discovery of new proteins/peptides of importance in nutraceutics
  • Compiles the research and analytic protocols of the two scientists who are credited with the discovery of these landmark methodologies, also known as combinatorial peptide ligand libraries, for the identification of low-abundance proteins

Editorial Reviews

"The book was written by the inventors of and leading experts in the technology and provides a comprehensive overview of what has been achieved with this relatively new approach. The detailed description of important experimental parameters and the protocols provided in this book make it a unique resource for all practitioners in the field and all scientists interested in the technology."--Analytical & Bioanalytical Chemistry, February 2014 "Boschetti and Righetti introduce the new technique of combinatorial peptide ligand libraries for identifying low-abundance peptide fragments. The standard proteomics techniques of mass spectrometry, 2D electrophoresis and chromatography are deliberately given brief treatment only as prefractionation tools in favor of new methodologies."--Reference & Research Book News, October 2013
