George R. Bousfield, Ph.D.

The goal of the Protein Chemistry Core Laboratory is to provide research support and training in protein chemistry. This core also specializes in structure-function studies on members of the glycoprotein hormone family. Classical protein chemistry analytical techniques have been adapted to meet the challenge that glycosylation poses to conventional methods of analysis. Because the core has this specific research focus, a broad range of analytical procedures are available to WSU investigators. Thus, in addition to the traditional protein chemistry core activities, such as protein sequencing, amino acid analysis, carbohydrate analysis, peptide mapping, and protein purification, the laboratory has expertise in radioimmunoassay and primary cell culture. The laboratory is also equipped for large-scale protein isolation.
