This review describes the present state of a project to identify and characterize novel nervous system proteins by using monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) against the Drosophila brain. Some 1,000 hybridoma clones were generated by injection of homogenized Drosophila brains or heads into mice and fusion of their spleen cells with myeloma cells. Testing the mAbs(More)
We present the first focused proteome study on human platelet membranes. Due to the removal of highly abundant cytoskeletal proteins a wide spectrum of known platelet membrane proteins and several new and hypothetical proteins were accessible. In contrast to other proteome studies we focused on prefractionation and purification of membranes from human(More)
A comprehensive analysis of plasma membrane proteins is essential to in-depth understanding of brain development, function, and diseases. Proteomics offers the potential to perform such a comprehensive analysis, yet it requires efficient protocols for the purification of the plasma membrane compartment. Here, we present a novel and efficient protocol for(More)
Transient Receptor Potential (TRP) proteins are non-selective cation channels performing diverse cellular functions. TRPV1 and TRPV4, two calcium-permeable channels of the vanilloid subfamily of TRP proteins, are activated by various physical and chemical stimuli, including noxious heat and mechanical stress, respectively. These channels are also required(More)
The Wuerzburg Hybridoma Library against the Drosophila brain represents a collection of around 200 monoclonal antibodies that bind to specific structures in the Drosophila brain. Here we describe the immunohistochemical staining patterns, the Western blot signals of one- and two-dimensional electrophoretic separation, and the mass spectrometric(More)
