Protein and Drug Biochemistry

© Fraunhofer IZI

The Protein and Drug Biochemistry Unit’s expertise lies in the purification of bacterial, plant and animal proteins, target proteins and their chemical and enzymological characterization. Applied methods range from protein chromatography to spectroscopic analysis of protein structure and mechanisms of enzyme functions. The unit’s competence also encompasses the isolation and characterization of antibodies aiming at developing protein drugs as well as their semi-preparative extraction. The subsequent structure-activity-analysis as well as structure-based molecular optimization complement the unit’s portfolio.
