Detection of Follistatin-doping in urine and blood

Resource description

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.
