Proteonomics is the study of protein structure and function. After genomics, proteonomics is the logical next step in the study of biological systems.

In proteomics, proteins can either be identified using antibodies (immunoassays) or using mass spectrometry. Antibodies to particular proteins or to their modified forms are used in biochemistry and cell biology studies.

There are several specific techniques and protocols that use antibodies for protein detection. One technique is the

that can be used for detection and quantification of individual proteins, where in the initial step a complex protein mixture is separated using
Select Option centrifugationSDS-PAGESanger sequencing
and then the protein of interest is identified using an antibody.
