EPO Signal Peptides and the detection of recombinant EPO
Project Title: EPO Signal Peptides and the detection of recombinant EPO
Researchers: Dr. C. Pemberton, Dr. D. Gerrard, Dr. J. Cotter
Institution: University of Otago, New Zealand
Year accepted: 2012
Summary: This project has the potential to offer a novel, simple, robust and specific method to detect illegal EPO, via measurement of the ratio of EPO to EPO signal peptide, for use in competitive sports. We envisage the ratio forming part of individual athletes 'Athlete Biological Passport' or ABP.
