Identification of major protein components in subcutaneous gel and plasma

The spot (2DGE) or band (one-dimensional SDS-PAGE) are identified with a number or letter, respectively. For each sample, peptide mass fingerprinting of in-gel tryptic digests was used to identify the protein. The Mowse score refers to the MASCOT scoring system, where the score obtained for the match is expressed relative to the significance threshold for the search (score/threshold). All proteins identified were from the chicken.
