How do we identify and study the proteins invovled in any particular process? How do we know which proteins are produced in which cell types? How do we know where any given protein is located within a cell?
Background image of page 4
Strategies to study the proteins that are invovled in a particular process: Biochemistry: Purify the proteins invovled and study their behavior in vitro . Recapitulate the process in a test tube. Genetics: Isolate a mutant that is defective in the process. Cell Biology: Watch the process in a microscope. Follow the dymanics of particular proteins in a living cell. Does inhibiting the function of a specific protein in a living cell block the process you are interested in? None of these fields are independent: Cell biologists do biochemistry, Cell biologists use genetics, Geneticists use cell biology….
