The ApoE interactome in human plasma

Grant number: DP0556836

Abstract

In this, the post-genome era, the emphasis has switched from the delineation of genome structure to the tremendous task of characterizing the gene products. One of the important aspects evolving in this new era is the design of strategies that enable identification of global protein-protein interactions, defined by the Human Proteome Organisation as the interactome. This, the apoE interactome in human plasma project, will identify novel interactions between plasma proteins and apoE, which is a lipid-binding protein genetically linked to age-related diseases affecting more than 500,000 Australians. This project will therefore provide scope for novel treatments and early detection of disease, ..
