RPPA

Reverse Phase Protein Array for Mitochondrial Proteins

 

Overview

Reverse Phase Protein Array (RPPA) is a microdot-blot platform that allows the quantitative measurement of protein expression levels in a large number of biological samples, simultaneously.

 

Mission statement

The RPPA facility hosted in the Department of Medical Biochemistry of the Semmelweis University aims to quantify the expression of all mitochondrial proteins in healthy and solid tumor samples.

 

Participants

We accept samples from all over the world, but primarily focus in the Central- and Eastern European region. So far, 10 Institutions of the Hungarian Healthcare System and the Human Tissue Brain Bank have pledged their participation to this project by providing healthy and solid tumor samples. Ethical permission for this project is pending.

 

Grant support

The RPPA facility is 100% funded by the ‘Competitive Central Hungary Operative Programme (CCHOP) European funds for the Central Hungary region‘ grant VEKOP 2.3.3-15-2016-00012 implemented by the National Research, Development and Innovation Office, endorsed by the Government decree 1762/2016. (XII.15.). This grant opportunity is supported by the European Commission scheme “Strengthening the R&D infrastructure – internationalisation and networking VEKOP-2.3.3-15“.
