Protein Folds Research Offers Insight into Metabolic Evolution

... from two international collections of genetic and proteomic information: the metabolic pathways database of the Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes, and the Structural Classification of Proteins database. They combined these two data sets with phylogenetic reconstructions, or family trees, of protein fo...

Diagnosis Of Sjogren's Syndrome Possible Using Saliva

...r detecting patients with pSS. In addition, the proteomic and genomic profile of these markers reflects the ... confirmed by independent technologies. The saliva proteomic and genomic biomarkers collectively will have a positive beneficial diagnostic value on the clinical...

Prematurity More Accurately Predicted by Advances in Proteomic Technology

... researchers demonstrated that women with abnormal proteomic profiles (MR scores) are more likely to have inflammation and infection. The researchers previously developed the novel MR scoring method to discriminate healthy from diseased women in whom preterm delivery is impending and the health of the fetus is...

Inflammation in Amniotic Fluid Detected

...earchers have found that a score that measures the proteomic profile of amniotic fluid may predict inflammation before delivery. // Researchers from Yale University, led by Catalin Buhimschi, have previously identified a set of four protein markers that were closely associated with inflammation in the amnioti...

Protein ‘Fingerprint’ in Spinal Fluid Could Spot Alzheimer’s Disese

...sy. “Our study is the first to use sophisticated proteomic methods to hone in on a group of cerebrospinal fluid biomarkers that are specific to autopsy-proven Alzheimer’s disease. Those postmortem tests confirmed that the panel is over 90 percent sensitive in identifying people with Alzheimer’s disease,” say...

Plague Proteome Reveals Proteins Linked to Infection

...ry and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory used proteomic techniques called accurate mass and time tag mass spectrometry and clustering analysis to compare abundance changes in 992 proteins under four different growth conditions, at 26 degrees and 37 degrees Celsius and with and without calcium. They foun...

Prostate Cancer Patients Sought for Database as Part of Joint Effort

... M.D. “Once we better understand the genetic and proteomic patterns of men with prostate cancer, we hope to be able to develop more targeted, more individualized – and ultimately, more effective -- treatments for prostate and other cancers,” Dr. Agus said. Participants must be at least 18 years of age and ...

A Mushroom Extract May Impact the Body’s Immune Syste

...mune system, a team of researchers sought to use a proteomic approach to identify the immunologically relevant proteins stimulated by treatment with the mushroom extract in human immune cells. The team will present preliminary findings during the 21st Annual Meeting of the American Association of Naturopathi...

Scientist Optimistic In Breakthrough For Causes Of Neurodegenerative Diseases

...d author. The results are from the most detailed proteomic analysis of a mammalian brain to date – that is, a survey of nearly 8,000 different, detectable proteins in the mouse brain. The research suggests that many neurodegenerative diseases leave a biochemical calling card, or biomarker, that could be used...

Gene Defects Determine Susceptibility to Cancer and Bone Marrow Failure

...ne of ribosomes. This highlights the importance of proteomic research analyzing proteins. ‘While defects in a number of genes are known to lead to cancer and disease, this opens up a new avenue of research,’ Ruggero said. ‘The DNA may be fine, but now we see another means by which the product it encodes can...

Mass Spectrometry to Identify Viruses

...te from a clinical sample within a few hours using proteomic mass spectrometry. Human norovirus causes gastrointestinal illness, commonly on cruise ships. Because of their mass spectrometric method they have immense potential as a tool for biodefens. The results of the study is published in the April 2006 e...

Malfunction Of Key Growth Factor Increases Mortality Rate From Pulmonary Fibrosis In Blacks

Using the proteomic approach they found that the amount of antifibrotic glycoprotein hypatocyte growth factor (HGF) was reduced in the blood and epithelial lining fluid of African-American scleroderma patients than in Caucasians.And the latest study presented in San Fra...

Latest Tumor Classification More Informative

.... Patterns identified from the gene expression and proteomic data from tumor samples can then be integrated as new groups within this classification. As each tumor is derived from a cell with an individual lineage, it will have a unique position within the classification. The commonly used tumor classificat...

Screening device for ovarian cancer

...ed state. Researchers in the US have established proteomic profiles for healthy women and those with ovarian cancer, using blood samples. They then used this knowledge on another group of women - of whom 50 had ovarian cancer (some of them at the very earliest stage that is hard to detect) and 60 did not. ...
