Mass spectrometry-based phosphoproteomics in cancer research

submitted by prenciss 1 year and 4 months ago
Phosphorylation is one of the most common post translational modifications (PTM), participating in a large number of processes to regulate cellular functions. Phosphorylation is also one of the key factors in the origin and development of cancer. The rapid development of mass spectrometric-based phosphoproteomic technologies has made it possible for high-throughput identification and quantification of phosphorylation events. In this review, we provide a general introduction and summary of the achievements made in mass spectrometry based phosphoproteomic research, including the approaches for phosphopeptide identification and quantification, as well as instrumentation and data interpretation methods. We also review some discoveries in cancer research made possible by phosphoproteomic analysis technologies.

Detection of cancer cells in the cerebrospinal fluid: current methods and future directions
submitted by snokicill 1 year and 7 months ago - Topic: Health
The spread of cancer into the central nervous system is a serious problem leading to neurological symptoms and rapid mortality. The current tools available for detecting the spread of cancer into the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) are cytology, neurologic examination, and neuroimaging. All three of these methods can be applied in concert to reach a diagnosis, but they all suffer from a lack of sensi...

Sets2Networks: network inference from repeated observations of sets
submitted by drmoraf 1 year and 8 months ago - Topic: Biology
The skeleton of complex systems can be represented as networks where vertices represent entities, and edges represent the relations between these entities. Often it is impossible, or expensive, to determine the network structure by experimental validation of the binary interactions between every vertex pair. It is usually more practical to infer the network from surrogate observations. Network ...

The Cytotoxic Effect of Essential Oil of Syrian Citrus limon Peel on Human Colorectal Carcinoma Cell Line (Lim1863)
submitted by jinnefir 1 year and 8 months ago - Topic: Health
Essential oils are the volatile fraction of aromatic and medicinal plants created after extraction by steam or water distillation. Species of the genus Citrus (Rutaceae) have been widely used in traditional medicine as volatile oils and are currently the subject of numerous research. Citrus essential oil consists of different terpens that have antitumor activities. This study determines the cyt...

Interrogating cAMP-dependent Kinase Signaling in Jurkat T Cells via a Protein Kinase A Targeted Immune-precipitation Phosphoproteomics Approach
submitted by blaigriinarongi 5 months ago - Topic: Biology
In the past decade, mass-spectrometry-based methods have emerged for the quantitative profiling of dynamic changes in protein phosphorylation, allowing the behavior of thousands of phosphorylation sites to be monitored in a single experiment. However, when one is interested in specific signaling pathways, such shotgun methodologies are not ideal because they lack selectivity and are not cost an...

Mass Spectrometry (MS)-based phosphoproteomics tools are crucial for understanding the structure and dynamics of signaling networks. Approaches such as affinity purification followed by MS have also been used to elucidate relevant biological questions in health and disease. The study of proteomes and phosphoproteomes as linked systems, rather than research studies of individual proteins, are ne...

Phosphoproteomics of CD44 Antibody-Treated Tumor Samples

The cell surface glycoprotein CD44 plays an important role in the development and progression of various tumor types. RG7356 is a humanized antibody targeting the constant region of CD44 that shows antitumor efficacy in mice implanted with CD44-expressing tumors such as MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cells. CD44 receptor seems to function as the main receptor for hyaluronic acid and osteopontin, serv...

The process of new blood vessels formation from pre-existing ones is called angiogenesis. Beyond playing a critical role in the physiological development of the vascular system, angiogenesis is a well-recognised hallmark of cancer. Unbiased system-wide approaches are required to complement the current knowledge, and intimately understand the molecular mechanisms regulating this process in physi...

Developing proteomics-based biomarkers for colorectal neoplasms for clinical practice: opportunities and challenges

Colorectal cancer (CRC) arises from the normal colon epithelium through the accumulation of genetic mutations and epigenetic alterations that are associated with progression along the histological adenoma-adenocarcinoma sequence. Elucidating the molecular alterations underlying disease progression will not only provide insight into the behavior of the tumors, but also could lead to the discover...
