Title:Global Cell Proteome Profiling, Phospho-signaling and Quantitative Proteomics for Identification of New Biomarkers in Acute Myeloid Leukemia Patients. VOLUME: 17 ISSUE: 1. Author(s):Elise Aasebø, Rakel B. Forthun, Frode Berven, Frode Selheim and Maria Hernandez-Valladares. Affiliation:Department of Biomedicine, Faculty of Medicine, Building for Basic Biology, University of Bergen, Jonas Lies vei 91, 5009 Bergen, Norway.. Keywords:Acute myeloid leukemia, biomarker, mass spectrometry, proteomics, phosphoproteomics, diagnosis, prognosis.. Abstract:The identification of protein biomarkers for acute myeloid leukemia (AML) that could find applications in AML diagnosis and prognosis, treatment and the selection for bone marrow transplant requires substantial comparative analyses of the proteomes from AML patients. In the past years, several studies have suggested some biomarkers for AML diagnosis or AML classification using methods for sample preparation with low proteome coverage and low ...
The word proteome was coined in 1995 to refer to the total protein complement of a genome. The human genome encodes roughly 100,000 genes, corresponding to a similar number of proteins. Not all genes are expressed in all tissues; roughly 10,000 proteins are found in any particular cell. The fraction of the proteome that is expressed by an organism varies between tissues and in response to the environment. Conventional proteome analysis is preformed by two-dimensional gel electrophoresis and requires the protein from roughly a million cells. We have improved the sensitivity of proteome analysis by six orders of magnitude. In preliminary work, we have demonstrated that we can perform a simple analysis of the proteome in a single human cancer cell. Our Preliminary work will be expanded in this R33 proposal. We will automate the manipulations of single cells, we will multiplex the instrument so that 96 cells can be analyzed simultaneously, we will expand our proteome analysis to two-dimensional ...
Plant cells are routinely exposed to various pathogens and environmental stresses that cause cell wall perturbations. Little is known of the mechanisms that plant cells use to sense these disturbances and transduce corresponding signals to regulate cellular responses to maintain cell wall integrity. Previous studies in rice have shown that removal of the cell wall leads to substantial chromatin reorganization and histone modification changes concomitant with cell wall re-synthesis. But the genes and proteins that regulate these cellular responses are still largely unknown. Here we present an examination of the nuclear proteome differential expression in response to removal of the cell wall in rice suspension cells using multiple nuclear proteome extraction methods. A total of 382 nuclear proteins were identified with two or more peptides, including 26 transcription factors. Upon removal of the cell wall, 142 nuclear proteins were up regulated and 112 were down regulated. The differentially ...

Fibroblasts are mesenchymal stromal cells which occur in all tissue types. While their main function is related to ECM production and physical support, they are also important players in wound healing, and have further been recognized to be able to modulate inflammatory processes and support tumor growth. Fibroblasts can display distinct phenotypes, depending on their tissue origin, as well as on their functional state. In order to contribute to the proteomic characterization of fibroblasts, we have isolated primary human fibroblasts from human skin, lung and bone marrow and generated proteome profiles of these cells by LC-MS/MS. Comparative proteome profiling revealed characteristic differences therein, which seemed to be related to the cells tissue origin. Furthermore, the cells were treated in vitro with the pro-inflammatory cytokine IL-1beta. While all fibroblasts induced the secretion of Interleukins IL-6 and IL-8 and the chemokine GRO-alpha, other inflammation-related proteins were up-regulated
MAPU contains several body fluid proteomes; including plasma, urine, and cerebrospinal fluid. Cell lines have been mapped to a depth of several thousand proteins and the red blood cell proteome has also been analyzed in depth. The liver proteome is represented with 3200 proteins. By employing high resolution MS and stringent validation criteria, false positive identification rates in MAPU are lower than 1:1000. Thus MAPU datasets can serve as reference proteomes in biomarker discovery. MAPU contains the peptides identifying each protein, measured masses, scores and intensities using a clickable interface of cell or body parts. Proteome data can be queried across proteomes by protein name, accession number, sequence similarity, peptide sequence and annotation information. More than 4500 mouse and 2500 human proteins have already been identified in at least one proteome ...
The proteome can be larger than the genome, especially in eukaryotes, as more than one protein can be produced from one gene due to alternative splicing (e.g. human proteome consists 92,179 proteins[citation needed] out of which 71,173 are splicing variants[citation needed]).[3] On the other hand, not all genes are translated to proteins, and many known genes encode only RNA which is the final functional product. Moreover, complete proteome size vary depending the kingdom of life. For instance, eukaryotes, bacteria, archaea and viruses have on average 15,145, 3,200, 2,358 and 42 proteins respectively encoded in their genomes.[4]. The term "dark proteome" coined by Perdigão and colleagues, defines regions of proteins that have no detectable sequence homology to other proteins of known three-dimensional structure and therefore cannot be modeled by homology. For 546,000 Swiss-Prot proteins, 44-54% of the proteome in eukaryotes and viruses was found to be "dark", compared with only ∼14% in ...
The use of dialyzed serum is essential in the application of the conventional stable isotope labeling by amino acids in cell culture (SILAC) approach to achieve complete labeling of proteins for quantitative proteomics. Here, we first evaluated the impact of dialyzed serum on the proteome and phosphoproteome
Background. Thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA) is a degenerative disease of the aortic wall and is associated with an increased risk of aortic rupture. TAA is a more prevalent complication in patients with bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) compared to those with tricuspid aortic valve (TAV). Objectives. We aimed to investigate first, changes in intracellular proteins by comparing BAV and TAV patients with aneurysm, and second, regional changes in extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins by comparing the lesser (concavity) and the greater (convexity) aortic curvatures of BAV patients with and without aneurysm. The findings obtained in human patients were followed up by mechanistic studies in mice. Methods. Human and murine aortic specimens were analysed by mass spectrometry (MS) after extraction of intracellular and ECM proteins. Immunoblotting and gene expression analysis were used to validate the proteomics findings. An ECM protease knockout mouse model was used to better characterise proteolytic processing ...
The term proteome was coined by Mark Wilkins first in 1994 in the symposium: "2D Electrophoresis: from protein maps to genomes" in Siena, Italy, and was subsequently published in 1995 (1), which was part of his PhD thesis. The term proteome is a blend of proteins and genome and Wilkins used it to describe the entire complement of proteins expressed by a genome, cell, tissue or organism. Subsequently this term has been specified to contain all the expressed proteins at a given time point under defined conditions. The term has been applied to several different types of biological systems. A cellular proteome is the collection of proteins found in a particular cell type under a particular set of environmental conditions such as exposure to hormone stimulation. It can also be useful to consider an organisms complete proteome, which can be conceptualized as the complete set of proteins from all of the various cellular proteomes. This is very roughly the protein equivalent of the genome. The term ...
The objective of the international Chromosome-Centric Human Proteome Project (C-HPP) is to map and annotate all proteins encoded by the genes on each human chromosome. The C-HPP consortium was established to organize a collaborative network among the research teams responsible for protein mapping of individual chromosomes and to identify compelling biological and genetic mechanisms influencing colocated genes and their protein products. The C-HPP aims to foster the development of proteome analysis and integration of the findings from related molecular -omics technology platforms through collaborations among universities, industries, and private research groups. The C-HPP consortium leadership has elicited broad input for standard guidelines to manage these international efforts more efficiently by mobilizing existing resources and collaborative networks. The C-HPP guidelines set out the collaborative consensus of the C-HPP teams, introduce topics associated with experimental approaches, data ...

We used 2H2O metabolic labeling to assess large scale plasma proteome dynamics in vivo. Administration of 2H2O in a bolus injection followed by 5% supplementation in the drinking water enabled accurate measurement of the FSR of multiple plasma proteins in less than 8 h. This approach considers 2H2O as the labeling precursor and is based on the assumption that 2H from 2H2O rapidly equilibrates with the carbon-bound hydrogen atoms of proteogenic amino acids before they are incorporated into newly synthesized proteins (12, 17). This key assumption was validated based on the analysis of temporal changes in 2H labeling of body water and hepatic proteogenic amino acids. The steady state labeling of nonexchangeable hydrogen atoms in free amino acids within 1 h of 2H2O administration demonstrates that the rate-limiting step of 2H incorporation into long-lived proteins (t½ , ∼3 h) is protein synthesis from amino acids. Protein synthesis is assessed from the rate of 2H incorporation into a proteolytic ...
Interferons (IFNs) are pleotropic cytokines secreted upon encounter of pathogens and tumors. Applying their antipathogenic, antiproliferative, and immune stimulatory capacities, recombinant IFNs are frequently prescribed as drugs to treat different diseases. IFNs act by changing the gene expression profile of cells. Due to characteristics such as rapid gene induction and signaling, IFNs also represent prototypical model systems for various aspects of biomedical research (e.g., signal transduction). In regard to the signaling and activated promoters, IFNs can be subdivided into two groups. Here, alterations of the cellular proteome of human cells treated with IFNα and IFNγ were elucidated in a time-resolved manner by quantitative proteome analysis. The majority of protein regulations were strongly IFN type and time dependent. In addition to the expected upregulation of IFN-responsive proteins, an astonishing number of proteins became profoundly repressed especially by IFNγ. Thus, our comprehensive

Comprehensive, systematic characterization of the plasma proteome in healthy and diseased states greatly facilitates the development of biosignatures for early disease detection, clinical diagnosis, and therapy. Blood plasma is the most complex human-derived proteome containing other tissue proteome subsets as well as a wide dynamic range of protein concentrations. Therefore, the characterization of biosignatures in the human plasma proteome is a very complicated task. Advances in methods and technology for profiling plasma proteins now enable construction of a comprehensive pipeline from candidate discovery, qualification, verification, research assay optimization, validation to eventual commercialization.. Analysis of the proteome from samples obtained from this population is of prime importance. The plasma and serum is isolated from the blood sample collected and flash frozen on site prior to be being shipped to our central cryostorage facility. The sample is then analyzed using a 2D-gel ...
Antibodies are crucial for the study of human proteins and have been defined as one of the three pillars in the human chromosome-centric Human Proteome Project (CHPP). In this article the chromosome-centric structure has been used to analyze the availability of antibodies as judged by the presence within the portal Antibodypedia, a database designed to allow comparisons and scoring of publicly available antibodies toward human protein targets. This public database displays antibody data from more than one million antibodies toward human protein targets. A summary of the content in this knowledge resource reveals that there exist more than 10 antibodies to over 70% of all the putative human genes, evenly distributed over the 24 human chromosomes. The analysis also shows that at present, less than 10% of the putative human protein-coding genes (n = 1882) predicted from the genome sequence lack antibodies, suggesting that focused efforts from the antibody-based and mass spectrometry-based proteomic ...

Cold adapted or psychrophilic organisms grow at low temperatures, where most of other organisms cannot grow. This adaptation requires a vast array of sequence, structural and physiological adjustments. To understand the molecular basis of cold adaptation of proteins, we analyzed proteomes of psychrophilic and mesophilic bacterial species and compared the differences in amino acid composition and substitution patterns to investigate their likely association with growth temperatures. In psychrophilic bacteria, serine, aspartic acid, threonine and alanine are overrepresented in the coil regions of secondary structures, whilst glutamic acid and leucine are underrepresented in the helical regions. Compared to mesophiles, psychrophiles comprise a significantly higher proportion of amino acids that contribute to higher protein flexibility in the coil regions of proteins, such as those with tiny/small or neutral side chains. Amino acids with aliphatic, basic, aromatic and hydrophilic side chains are
Current conventions limit the size and complexity of the detectable proteome and prevent mass-spectrometry-based proteomics from providing a comprehensive characterization of biological systems.

Recently, though, the care of women felt to be at high risk due to a strong family history of breast and/or ovarian cancer or a known germline BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation has provided potential insight into the development of these malignancies. Risk-reducing surgical removal of the fallopian tubes and ovaries, called risk-reducing bilateral salpingo-oopherectomy (RRBSO), is commonly performed as a laparoscopic procedure to minimize recovery time. We describe here an optimized surgical sampling workflow for analyzing the proteomes of peritoneal, fallopian tube, and ovarian surface epithelial (OSE) ...
Whole-proteome distributions of protein isoelectric point (pI) values in different organisms are bi- or trimodal with some variations. It was suggested that the observed multimodality of the proteome-wide pI distributions is associated with subcellular localization-specific differences in the local pI distributions. However, the factors responsible for variation of the intracellular localization-specific pI profiles have not been investigated in detail. In this work, we explored proteome-wide pI distributions of 32,138 human proteins predicted to reside in 10 subcellular compartments, as well as the pI distributions of experimentally observed lysosomal and Golgi proteins. The distributions were found to differ significantly, although all of them adhered to the major recurrent bimodal pattern. Grossly, acid-biased and alkaline-biased patterns with various minor statistical features were observed at different subcellular locations. Bioinformatics analysis revealed the existence of strong statistically
Soon after the introduction of high resolution two-dimensional electrophoresis (2-DE) in 1975 by Klose (16), OFarrell (17), and others, the technique was applied to the plasma proteins by the present authors (18) with the result that the number of resolved species increased to 300 or more. The 2-DE map of human plasma that resulted is recognizably the same as those produced later by many investigators: in contrast to cellular protein patterns, the plasma 2-DE pattern appears basically the same in everyones hands perhaps due to the very high solubility of the proteins involved and the ease with which the distinctive glycosylation trains of specific proteins can be recognized. A more comprehensive database was reported in 1991 in which 727 spots were resolved, of which 376 were identified as 49 different proteins (19). A plasma map using an immobilized pH gradient first dimension separation was presented the following year with 40 protein identifications carried out by microsequencing (20), and ...

The quantitative proteome analysis is a key technology for most of the projects within the CRC 1218. The aim of the Z02 project is to support the projects with mass spectrometric expertise. Besides the assessment of global protein expression profiles, the major focus of the facility is the identification of protein-protein interaction in order to decipher molecular networks within mitochondria. In addition, we will investigate activated signalling pathways by the enrichment of post translational modifications, including phosphorylated and ubiquitinated peptides. Moreover, the Z02 project will also support the CRC with statistical and bioinformatics data analysis.. Latest publication ...
Characterizing the molecular components of the basic unit of life; the cell, is crucial for a complete understanding of human biology. The cell is divided into compartments to create a suitable environment for the resident proteins to fulfill their functions. Therefore, spatial mapping of the human proteome is essential to understand protein function in health and disease.. Spatial proteomics is most commonly investigated using mass spectrometry or imaging, combined with machine learning for the data analysis. Until now, studies have been limited to high abundant proteins and relied on the purification of organelle fractions from a bulk of cells. Within the scope of this thesis, we were able to systematically localize proteins in their native cellular environment using antibody-based imaging techniques, and to investigate protein subcellular localization and dynamics on a single cell level, introducing a major advance within the field of spatial proteomics..

The massive characterization of host-associated and environmental microbial communities has represented a real breakthrough in the life sciences in the last years. In this context, metaproteomics specifically enables the transition from assessing the genomic potential to actually measuring the functional expression of a microbiome. However, significant research efforts are still required to develop analysis pipelines optimized for metaproteome characterization. This work presents an efficient analytical pipeline for shotgun metaproteomic analysis, combining bead-beating/freeze-thawing for protein extraction, filter-aided sample preparation for cleanup and digestion, and single-run liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry for peptide separation and identification. The overall procedure is more time-effective and less labor-intensive when compared to state-of-the-art metaproteomic techniques. The pipeline was first evaluated using mock microbial mixtures containing different types of bacteria and

The proteome comprises all protein species resulting from gene expression in a cell, organelle, tissue or organism. By definition, proteomics aims to identify and characterise the expression pattern, cellular location, activity, regulation, post-translational modifications, molecular interactions, three dimensional structures and functions of each protein in a biological system. In plant science, the number of proteome studies is rapidly expanding after the completion of the Arabidopsis thaliana genome sequence, and proteome analyses of other important or emerging model systems and crop plants are in progress or are being initiated. Proteome analysis in plants is subject to the same obstacles and limitations as in other organisms, but the nature of plant tissues, with their rigid cell walls and complex variety of secondary metabolites, means that extra challenges are involved that may not be faced when analysing other organisms. | Plant Genomics
Proteomics approaches are being increasingly applied in ecotoxicology on the premise that the identification of specific protein expression changes in response to a particular chemical would allow elucidation of the underlying molecular pathways leading to an adverse effect. This in turn is expected to promote the development of focused testing strategies for specific groups of toxicants. Although both gel-based and gel-free global characterization techniques provide limited proteome coverage, the conclusions regarding the cellular processes affected are still being drawn based on the few changes detected. To investigate how specific the detected responses are, we analyzed a set of studies that characterized proteome alterations induced by various physiological, chemical and biological stressors in zebrafish, a popular model organism. Our analysis highlights several proteins and protein groups, including heat shock and oxidative stress defense proteins, energy metabolism enzymes and cytoskeletal ...

We have previously developed an approach, where two-dimensional gel electrophoresis (2DE) was used, followed by sectional analysis of the whole gel using high-resolution nano-liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (ESI LC-MS/MS). In this study, we applied this approach on the panoramic analysis of proteins and their proteoforms from normal (liver) and cancer (HepG2) cells. This allowed us to detect, in a single proteome, about 20,000 proteoforms coded by more than 4000 genes. A set of 3D-graphs showing distribution of these proteoforms in 2DE maps (profiles) was generated. A comparative analysis of these profiles between normal and cancer cells showed high variability and dynamics of many proteins. Among these proteins, there are some well-known features like alpha-fetoprotein (FETA) or glypican-3 (GPC3) and potential hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) markers. More detailed information about their proteoforms could be used for generation of panels of more specific biomarkers.
Spectral counts per gene per experiment (e.g. SDS-PAGE) were first summed from all peptides mapped to each gene. Total acquired tandem mass spectra were used to normalize between experiments and then spectral counts per gene were averaged across multiple experiments (e.g. SDS-PAGE and bRPLC fractionation) per sample (e.g. pancreas). Final averaged spectral counts per gene per sample were used to plot the white-to-red gradient heat map for genes of interest, while summed spectral counts per peptide were used to depict the heat map for all peptides identified and mapped to a gene of interest ...

Temperature fluctuation is a common environmental stress that elicits a molecular response in order to maintain intracellular protein levels. Here, for the first time, we report a comprehensive temporal and quantitative study of the proteome during a 240-minute heat stress, using label-free mass spectrometry. We report temporal expression changes of the hallmark heat stress proteins, including many molecular chaperones, tightly coupled to their protein clients. A notable lag of 30 to 120 minutes was evident between transcriptome and proteome levels for differentially expressed genes. This targeted molecular response buffers the global proteome; fewer than 15% of proteins display significant abundance change. Additionally, a parallel study in a Hsp70 chaperone mutant (ssb1) demonstrated a significantly attenuated response, at odds with the modest phenotypic effects that are observed on growth rate. We cast the global changes in temporal protein expression into protein interaction and ...

Pancreatic cancer is one of the most aggressive human tumors because of the challenges associated with detecting it at an early stage and its high potential for dissemination and distant metastasis. Therefore, clarifying the biological mechanisms underlying distant metastasis from pancreatic cancer and accelerating the development of new treatment strategies are needed. We previously isolated ZNF185, a metastasis-related protein, using a global quantitative proteome analysis. ZNF185 contains two zinc-finger motifs in the C-terminus that fit the consensus pattern of the LIM domains inducing tumor formation and cytoskeleton organization. In the present study, we investigated the expression of ZNF185 in human pancreatic cancer in vivo and in clinical cases, and also evaluated its prognostic significance. Immunohistochemical staining of resected specimens and a xenograft model of liver metastasis was used to examine the relationship between distant metastasis in and the prognosis of pancreatic ...

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a major health problem. Biomarkers associated with molecular changes in cancer cells can aid early detection, diagnosis, prognosis, therapy selection, and disease monitoring. Tumor tissue secretomes are a rich source of candidate biomarkers. To identify CRC protein biomarkers, secretomes of four pairs of human CRC tissue and patient-matched normal colon tissue samples, and secretomes of five CRC cell lines were analyzed by GeLC-MS/MS. Subsequent data analysis was based on label-free spectral counting, Ingenuity Pathway Analysis, Secretome/SignalP, STRING and Cytoscape, resulting in 2703 protein identifications in the tissue secretomes, of which 409 proteins were significantly more present in CRC samples than in controls. Biomarker selection of 76 candidates was based on consistent and abundant over-representation in cancer-compared to control-secretomes, and presumed neoplastic origin. Overlap analysis with previously obtained datasets revealed 21 biomarkers suited for ...

In this work, we developed a software package of iGPS (GPS algorithm with the interaction filter, or in vivo GPS) mainly for the prediction of in vivo ssKSRs. Eukaryotic PKs were classified into a hierarchy with four levels: group, family, subfamily, and single PK (Manning, et al., 2002). Based on the hypothesis that similar PKs recognize similar SLMs, we selected a predictor in GPS 2.0 (Xue, et al., 2008) for each PK and directly predicted the potential PKs for the non-annotated p-sites from the phosphoproteomic studies. Consequently, protein-protein interaction (PPI) information was used as the major contextual factor to filtrate potentially false-positive hits. The performance of iGPS was shown by critical evaluations and comparisons to be promising for the accurate prediction of in vivo ssKSRs. Based on the prediction results of iGPS, we modeled eukaryotic protein phosphorylation networks (PPNs) at different levels, including whole proteome, pathway and tissues/organs. By additionally ...
During the COPY project, a global absolute quantification of the yeast proteome using QconCAT technology, we recombinantly expressed over 100 QconCAT protiens. We found that some QconCAT proteins failed to express, or did not express to detectable levels. Our interest was piqued and we determined to investigate whether there were global proteomic changes to be seen in E.coli following the addition of the QconCAT plasmid, or the addition of Isopropyl β-D-1-thiogalactopyranoside (IPTG) the synthetic analog of lactose used to induce expression of recombinant proteins using the pET21a vector system. Our study starts by looking at the large scale proteomic changes that occur when E.coli is grown in different types of media, and whether E.coli, without a pET21a plasmid vector, is influenced by the presence of IPTG. We hope to progress this work on to look at the effect of the presence of a plasmid, containing either an expressing or non-expressing QconCAT. ...

Professor Michele Vendruscolo is studying the principles by which the amino acid sequences of proteins determine a wide range of properties beyond their native structures and their ability to fold.. He has shown that the physico-chemical properties of protein sequences can be used to rationalise and predict the abundance of proteins within cells, and the nature of their interactions with other cellular components, ranging from functional partners to protective species such as molecular chaperones.. This approach has generated rational design procedures for the modification of protein behaviour, thus suggesting therapeutic approaches directed at many types of disease, including those involving the disordered proteins associated with neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimers and Parkinsons diseases.. In particular, by enabling proteome-wide analyses of the factors regulating protein homeostasis, his methods are offering new insights into the manner in which physics and chemistry regulate ...
The MLL gene was cloned over twenty years ago, yet the first molecular function for a MLL homolog was defined by our laboratory when we demonstrated that yeast Set1 (the MLL homolog) is a component of a large complex, Set1/COMPASS, which methylates histone H3 on its fourth lysine (H3K4) in the early transcribed regions of genes. Subsequent work by us and other labs demonstrated that the COMPASS family is highly conserved from yeast to Drosophila to mammalian cells functioning as H3K4 methylases. Although there is only one COMPASS in yeast, there are at least three COMPASS family members in Drosophila (dSet1, trx and Trr) and six COMPASS family members in human cells (Set1A-B, MLL1-4) with non-redundant functions.. To better define the molecular machinery required for proper histone H3K4 methylation by Set/1COMPASS in yeast and the COMPASS family in Drosophila and human cells, we devised a global functional proteomic screen, which we call Global Proteomic analysis in S. cerevisiae (GPS). With ...

Researchers from the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) and the German Heart Centre at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have now determined which and how many individual proteins are present in each type of cell that occurs in the heart. In doing so, they compiled the first atlas of the healthy human heart, known as the cardiac proteome.
More than 80 percent of the worlds population is infected with the herpesvirus, which can cause severe diseases in newborns and in persons with weakened immune system. Researchers had already sequenced the herpesvirus genome 20 years ago, thinking they could then predict all proteins that the virus produces (virus proteome). Now scientists from the research department of Matthias Mann, director at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry, and their American colleagues have analysed the information content of the genome more precisely. To carry out their study, the scientists infected cells with herpesvirus and observed which proteins the virus produced inside the cell over a period of 72 hours. In order for proteins to be produced at all, the cell machinery must first make copies of the genetic material as intermediate products (RNA). While investigating the intermediate products of the herpesvirus, the American collaborators discovered many novel RNA molecules which were in large part ...

Habitual aerobic exercise enhances physiological function and reduces risk of morbidity and mortality throughout life, but the underlying molecular mechanisms are largely unknown. The circulating proteome reflects the intricate network of physiological processes maintaining homeostasis and may provide insight into the molecular transducers of the health benefits of physical activity. In this exploratory study, we assessed the plasma proteome (SOMAscan proteomic assay; 1,129 proteins) of healthy sedentary or aerobic exercise-trained young women and young and older men (n = 47). Using weighted correlation network analysis to identify clusters of highly co-expressed proteins, we characterized 10 distinct plasma proteomic modules (patterns). In healthy young (24 ± 1 yr) men and women, 4 modules were associated with aerobic exercise status and 1 with participant sex. In healthy young and older (64 ± 2 yr) men, 5 modules differed with age, but 2 of these were partially preserved at young adult ...

Todays health care system is in a state of major restructuring and change. We envision a considerable shift in the paradigm of how and when we meet disease within the clinic due to both growing demand from an increasing number of patients as well as the ever escalating costs for providing resources to meet these needs. This is a global problem and actual shortcomings within our societies are realized on all continents and lifestyles.. For many common diseases, such as cancer, diabetes, neuro-degenerative and cardiovascular diseases there is an unmet need for diagnosing early indications of disease that could enable medical intervention and early treatment. At the same time as this is posed as one of the biggest challenges in modern health care, a novel opportunity is being created to build and generate a health care system that is driven by the medical research community with a patient-centric approach. This change in modern hospital infrastructure has already started, and is to a large extent ...

1. A simple method that has been used for the prediction of orthologous proteins in two organisms is to search for a pair of sequences, a in organism 1 and b in organism 2, such that (1) a search of the proteome of 2 with a finds b as the best hit, and (2) a search of the proteome of 1 with b finds a as the best hit. The method is sometimes called the bidirectional best-hit method. The relationship is especially strong if the E value is very small (e.g ...

What is a protein?. The word protein is derived from the Greek proteios, meaning "of the first rank". The term was coined in 1838 by the Swedish scientist Jöns Berzelius, to reflect the importance of this group of molecules.. A stretch of DNA called a gene carries the information required to build a protein. It is believed that there are between 20,000 and 25,000 genes in the human genome (1), but over 1 million proteins in the human proteome (2), making proteins the most abundant class of all biological molecules. The difference between the number of genes and proteins is due the fact that one gene is able to give rise to more than one protein, and that once produced, proteins can be chemically modified (usually by other proteins) to change their properties and activities.. The building blocks of proteins are amino acids. There are twenty naturally occurring amino acids (see table The naturally occurring amino acids) from which all natural proteins are constructed. All twenty are based on a ...
