timsTOF SCP mass spectrometer installed at ProteoToul

Thanks to the REACT-EU OCSSIGEN projet (Région Occitanie, FEDER funds), ProteoToul has acquired a high sensitivity timsTOF SCP mass spectrometer coupled to an Evosep chromatographic system. This platform allows an in-depth analysis of proteins from very low amounts of samples (primary cells, biopsies, …) and paves the way towards single cell proteomics. Bruker timsTOF technical..

MaxQuant Summer School

At the beginning of September the 13th International Summer School on Computational Mass Spectrometry-Based Proteomics was held in Barcelona. Two of the group’s PhD students Pinar Altiner and Zoltan Udvardy joined the event where they received hands-on training in computational analysis of proteomics data using MaxQuant and Perseus software. In addition to the tutorials, our..

Understanding how T lymphocytes discriminate between antigens of varying affinities

T lymphocytes are essential cells of the immune system, and have the ability to sense a wide range of antigenic peptides bound to the Major histocompatibility complex (MHC). But they trigger a proper response only after recognition of high-affinity antigens coming from pathogens, while interaction with self-peptides fail to activate them. Through an in-depth, time-resolved..
