Mine runoff continues to provide clues to microbial diversification
...o might have implications into helping study human proteomics
because not everyone’s individual genome will be sequenced.? The pink microbial biofilm communities found in the mine runoff provide perfect research subjects because they have fewer organisms than most communities found in nature. The reason, Hett...
Scientists use nanoparticle to discover disease-causing proteins
.... "The problem with the current method of using proteomics
- protein profiling - is that we use very small sample amounts so sensitive that we can't effectively use existing technologies to study them," Tao said. "In addition, to study a specific protein and its function, we want to preserve its natural envi...
Proteins may predict lung transplant rejection
...and those who did not. The researchers combined proteomics
(the study of proteins), the latest in mass spectrometry technology and the best analytical methods from the field of bioinformatics (the use of computers and statistics to analyze and find patterns in scads of data). They hypothesized that proteins ...
Newly identified biomarker detects and regulates spread of brain tumors
...ples from patients with various CNS diseases using proteomics
to examine simultaneously all proteins in biological samples. To validate the study's results, attractin levels in a set of 100 normal and tumoral brain samples also were examined. The researchers found elevated attractin levels in 97 percent of mali...

Study offers innovative profile of enzyme that aids tumor growth
...sible due to the availability of an activity-based proteomics
probe for this enzyme. Such probes are now available for many enzyme classes that participate in cell metabolism, so Cravatt suggests "a large swath of the enzyme proteome" could be addressed using the study's experimental strategy. "The success...
Scientists make first step towards 'holy grail' of crystallography
...y acute with the advent of structural genomics and proteomics
which aim to determine the structures of thousands of proteins. Protein crystallography plays a major role in this understanding because proteins, being the major machinery of living things, are often targets for drugs. To direct the proteins to be...

The closest look ever at the cell's machines
...he set with the highest quality," Aloy says. "Most proteomics
studies in the past have shown whether molecules interact or not, in a 'yes/no' way. The completeness of this data lets us see how likely any particular molecule is to bind to another. By combining such measurements for all the proteins in the cell, ...
Novel protein complex enables survival in hostile environment
...," Johnson said. By use of genome-sequence-driven proteomics
techniques, they identified the gene for the enzyme. A search showed that this gene exists only in hydrothermal vent methanogens and their close relatives, but not in other microorganisms. From the sequence of the fsr gene, Johnson and Mukhopadhya...
