The poisonous milkshake

Protein identification

The laboratory technician called to give us an update. They were able to sequence a total of 10 different proteins from the samples taken from Mirko’s cup.

Let’s try to identify the extracted proteins!

Go to UniProt and open the BLAST tool. For each entry in the milkshake_samples.fasta file, try to collect the following information:

  • UniProt ID
  • Protein name
  • Function
  • Subcellular location
Finally, let’s identify the cause of Mirko’s condition and try to list the most probable ingredients he used to make the milkshake. Download this answer sheet and write your findings in it.
