Detection of Follistatin-doping in urine and blood
Project Title: Detection of Follistatin-doping in urine and blood
Researchers: Dr. C. Reichel, Dr. Gmeiner
Institution: Seibersdorf Labor GmbH, Austria
Year accepted: 2018
Summary: Follistatins can be bought from many internet providers for “research purposes”. Most of these proteins are expressed in E. coli and hence lack the characteristic glycosylation of human endogenous follistatins. This fact will be exploited in order to detect doping with follistatins.
