The basic technology for protein expression and high-throughput mAb production at the Center for Proteomics was organized and supported through this grant, with Max von-Pettenkofer-Institut, LMU, Munich and Medical Faculty University of Mostar, as partners.
The focus of this project was on the generation of mAbs against the entire proteome of the Varicella Zoster Virus (VZV), which consists of 69 distinct proteins. Up to now, mAbs have been generated to the vast majority of the VZV proteins. The data are going to be published and made available to the scientific community.
Apart from that, by using this comprehensive pool of mAbs as well as other mAbs produced by the Center, the platform for a variety of mAb-based tools for protein analysis will be developed, which should increase the throughput and reliability of proteomic discovery.
