Project: Method development for the characterization of serum/plasma protein glycosylation. Application in clinical hepatology, endocrinology, oncology and anti-doping control

project duration
01-JAN-07 – 31-OCT-11
abstract
This project aims to develop new methods for the characterisation of protein glycosylation patterns of serum proteins, and to apply these in clinical contexts. More specifically, sensitive and specific markers for liver cirrhosis and cancer are investigated, as is the influence of ageing on the glycosylation patterns of plasma hormones and hormone-binding proteins.
