Detection of doping with Myostatin-Propeptide in human urine and blood
Project Title: Detection of doping with Myostatin-Propeptide in human urine and blood
Researcher: Christian Reichel, Veronika Scheiblhofer, Günter Gmeiner
Institution: Seibersdorf Labor GmbH, Austria
Year accepted: 2019
Summary: Myostatin-propeptides can be bought on the black market for “research purposes”. These proteins are expressed in E. coli and hence lack the characteristic glycosylation of human endogenous myostatin-propeptide. This fact will be exploited in order to detect doping with myostatin-propeptide.
