AVIV fluorescence dtection system and analysis of protein complex formation
Analytical ultracentrifugation is an excellent method for the analysis of proteins and protein complexes. Using this method we aim at utilizing the full range of options to study the protein systems we are interested in (chaperones, co-factors). To this aim we have three analytical ultracentrifuges with different detectors (interference, UV/VIS and fluorescence). The continous optimization of hardware and data analysis - also for external cooperations - should ensure that s-values, molecular masses and the various paramteres of protein-protein complex formations can be derived with the best possible accuracy.
