Proteins are the chief actors in almost every biological process. While we know a lot about the function of individual proteins there is little information about the system as a whole. Recent developments in mass spectrometry have dramatically improved the analytical power of this technology. We are using mass spectrometry-based quantitative proteomics to investigate cellular signalling at the protein level on a global scale. Main areas of research are posttranscriptional regulation of gene expression by microRNAs, protein-protein interaction in the context of neurodegenerative diseases and in vivo quantitative proteomics.
