Research Areas
The Laboratory of Biochemistry under the guidance of prof. D.A. Kyriakidis is sufficiently equiped in order to cope with a variety of subjects and expertise, such as the production of native or recombinant proteins/enzymes from bacteria, extracellularly or intracellularly, bacterial production of biopolymers and polysaccharides. The Lab is also well experienced in separation, purification and characterization of macromolecules, DNA or RNA isolation for specific binding, small peptide synthesis and production of their antibodies, antibody-antigen cross reaction, synthesis of small peptides conjugated with various adducts. It is also in position to apply modern techniques in molecular biology, such as PCR, DNA sequencing and genotyping.
Laboratory Equipment
The following instruments are available at the laboratoty of Biochemistry: DNA Sequencer, Peltier Thermal Cycler, three HPLC apparatus, UV-Vis spectrophotometer, Liquid Scintillation Counter, (-70 oC) deep freezer and Ultra-speed Centrifuges and a two-liter Bioreactor for pilot planned cultures in lab-scale and production of high-additional value products, many electrophoresis apparatus etc.
