General description

This covers electrophoretic steps leading to proteome analysis, i.e. isoelectric focusing (including immobilized pH gradients), SDS-PAGE electrophoresis and finally two-dimensional maps. It is a collection of modern methodologies leading to successful fractionation, analysis and characterization of every polypeptide spot in 2-D map analysis. It includes chapters on sophisticated mass spectrometry developments and navigating important databases. It contains several as yet unpublished protocols, correcting some of the existing ones and showing the pitfalls and limitations of others.
