This work is devoted to pig spleen proteome study. Spleens were taken from Duroc pigs (females, 145 - 160 days old) and typical two-dimensional electrophoregrams were obtained. On proteomic maps after visualization and image analysis there were detected 600 fractions, including organ-specific proteins - 3 62 fractions. Among the identified constitutive fractions, the highest expression was observed (Vol spots more than 3.0E + 07) four protein spots S1, S9, S12 and S21, which are supposedly Annexin A1 (MW 38.76 kDa), Ectonucleoside triphosphate diphosphohydrolase 1 (MW 57.75 kDa) Pro-cathepsin H CD59 (MW 37.45 kDa) and glycoprotein (MW 13.79 kDa), respectively. Obtained electrophoregrams analysis using information resources made it possible to identify different active compounds in spleen with various functions, mainly immunoregulatory - glycoprotein CD59 (Mm 13.79 kDa) and ATP-dependent RNA helicase (Mm 107.58 kDa); the intensely expressed LIM-domain of the actin-binding protein (Mm 83.99 kDa). The results obtained are a prospect for immunomodulating biologic development based on animal raw materials for farm animals.
