Classifying MRSA: Biomarker peptides of different strains by rapid mass spectrometric profiling

Date: Jul 1, 2012

Author: Steve Down

Three strains of antibiotic-resistant Staphylococcus aureus can be distinguished by the mass spectrometric detection of specific peptides, providing the opportunity for developing a diagnostic test.

Journal Highlight: Insights on neoplastic stem cells from gel-based proteomics of childhood germ cell tumors

Date: Jun 25, 2012

Author: spectroscopyNOW

The first proteomics study of childhood germ cell tumours suggests that glucocorticoid receptor signalling is an area of interest for these and neoplastic stem cells.

Telling porkies: Dietary studies on cloned pigs show poor metabolome consistency

Date: Jun 15, 2012

Author: Steve Down

A metabolomics comparison of cloned and normal pigs fed controlled or ad libitum diets has revealed differences between the two animal types and confirmed earlier NMR observations that cloned pigs do not have a reduced level of inter-individual variations.

Food for thought: Protein indicators of appetite in saliva

Date: Jun 1, 2012

Author: Steve Down

A preliminary study on the response of the saliva proteome to food has identified two proteins which might be biomarkers for appetite, say researchers in the UK, with the potential to replace invasive blood tests and subjective measures.

Journal Highlight: The role of targeted chemical proteomics in pharmacology

Date: May 21, 2012

Author:

The role of chemical proteomics in determining the specificity of drugs and their analogues for anticipated known targets, which leads to the discovery of unexpected targets and potential side effects, is discussed with examples. The process leads to the refinement of second- and third-generation drug design for treatment of many diseases.

Radical problems: Cigarette smoke attacks proteins in oral tissue

Date: May 15, 2012

Author: Steve Down

The reactive aldehydes present in cigarette smoke have a rapid and toxic effect on human oral fibroblasts, oxidising key proteins and reducing their cellular levels, according to a transatlantic study.

Storm in a teacup: Iron levels unchanged but saliva proteome modified after drinking green tea

Date: May 1, 2012

Author: Steve Down

The salivary proteome of rats is modified when green tea is added to their diet, according to researchers in the USA, but the levels of iron in their blood remain unaffected, clarifying this controversial issue.

Journal Highlight: Proteomics: present and future in fish, shellfish and seafood

Date: Apr 23, 2012

Author:

A brief overview of current classical proteomics methodology (electrophoresis and mass spectrometry) is presented and focused in the context of applications beneficial to the field of fish, shellfish and seafood/seafood products.

Seafood spoilers: Streptococcal bacteria in vacuum-packed seafood product isolated and characterised

Date: Apr 15, 2012

Author: Steve Down

A pathogen that causes streptococcosis in fish has been isolated from a spoiled sample of refrigerated, vacuum-packed seafood and characterised by genotyping and proteomic analysis. The mass spectrum of its soluble proteins displays several peaks that are unique to this species and will allow its rapid identification in food products.

Cancer classification: MALDI imaging distinguishes different types of cancer

Date: Apr 1, 2012

Author: Steve Down

Six common types of tumour have been differentiated by mass spectrometry in a proof-of-principle proteomics study by European scientists, which could lead to a personalised treatment regime for cancer sufferers.
