About this book


The use of proteomics to study complex diseases such as cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death in developed countries, has grown exponentially in recent years. Proteomics is a rapidly expanding investigation platform in cardiovascular medicine and is becoming integrated and incorporated into cardiovascular research. The proteomics field continues to develop with major improvements in mass spectrometry instrumentation, methodology and data analysis. Heart Proteomics: Methods and Protocols complies a selection of techniques and methods that target the numerous processes implicated in the pathophysiology of heart. Chapters cover protocols and updated methods in the heart proteomic area with a particular focus on MS-based methods of protein and peptide quantification and the analysis of posttranslational modifications as well as descriptions of system biology approaches, which provide a better understanding of normal and pathological processes. Written in the successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible protocols, and notes on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.


Authoritative and easily accessible, Heart Proteomics: Methods and Protocols is a representative selection of methods that will prove to be a useful resource for experienced proteomics practitioners and newcomers alike.
