Seeing through the smokescreen: Proteins implicated in bone loss induced by smoking

Date: Aug 1, 2012

Author: Steve Down

Cigarette smoke induces increased amounts of two proteins that accelerate the production of cells which break down bone and induce bone resorption, leading to lower bone density.

Journal Highlight: Strategies for membrane interaction proteomics: No mass spectrometry required

Date: Jul 23, 2012

Author: spectroscopyNOW

This review describes some of the major non-mass spectrometry-based methods and technologies used for the investigation of intracellular membrane protein complexes and highlights their advantages and drawbacks.

A vein attempt: Debris from angioplasty good for proteomics

Date: Jul 16, 2012

Author: Steve Down

Scraps of biological material that are trapped in embolic protection devices during a balloon angioplasty procedure can provide clues to the protein changes caused by inflammation during atherosclerosis.

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.
