Proteome News and Research RSS Feed - Proteome News and Research

The proteome is the entire complement of proteins expressed by a genome, cell, tissue or organism. More specifically, it is the expressed proteins at a given time point under defined conditions. The term is a blend of proteins and genome.
Scientists demonstrate that proteins in urine play important role in stress incontinence

Scientists demonstrate that proteins in urine play important role in stress incontinence

Incontinence is the world's most common chronic condition. Around ten per cent of Austrians are affected by it. However the problem continues to be a taboo subject: two out of three sufferers do not talk about it, preventing access to successful treatment. [More]

Protein-kinase interactions offer a new way to fight antimalarial drug resistance

Protein-kinase interactions offer a new way to fight antimalarial drug resistance

When it comes to the emergence of antimalarial drug resistance, it's not a question of 'if' but 'when'. In order to keep up with the quickly evolving Plasmodium parasite - the cause of malaria - new ways to treat and control the disease must be found. [More]
Researchers create initial catalog of human proteome, identify 193 novel proteins

Researchers create initial catalog of human proteome, identify 193 novel proteins

Striving for the protein equivalent of the Human Genome Project, an international team of researchers has created an initial catalog of the human "proteome," or all of the proteins in the human body. [More]
Space Station science: Microgravity on human thyroid carcinoma cells

Space Station science: Microgravity on human thyroid carcinoma cells

The multi-national efforts that go into research aboard the International Space Station show that working together can yield results with universal benefits. [More]
Researchers develop gene therapy reversing memory loss in mice with early-stage Alzheimer's

Researchers develop gene therapy reversing memory loss in mice with early-stage Alzheimer's

Alzheimer's disease is the first cause of dementia and affects some 400,000 people in Spain alone. However, no effective cure has yet been found. One of the reasons for this is the lack of knowledge on the cellular mechanisms which cause alterations in nerve transmissions and the loss of memory in the initial stages of the disease. [More]
Drugs used to treat osteoporosis appear to prevent cell membrane repair

Drugs used to treat osteoporosis appear to prevent cell membrane repair

A class of drugs widely used to treat osteoporosis appears to impede a cell's ability to repair a protective outer membrane that helps determine what enters and exits, researchers report. [More]
Researchers uncover new aspect of autism

Researchers uncover new aspect of autism

A team of researchers from the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and the Center for Cancer Systems Biology at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute has uncovered a new aspect of autism, revealing that proteins involved in autism interact with many more partners than previously known. These interactions had not been detected earlier because they involve alternatively spliced forms of autism genes found in the brain. [More]
Researchers demonstrate advantages of HOPE fixation strategy

Researchers demonstrate advantages of HOPE fixation strategy

They discovered that the so-called HOPE method allows tissue samples to be treated such that they do not only meet the requirements of clinical histology, but can still be characterised later on by modern methods of proteomics, a technique analysing all proteins at once. [More]
Researchers demonstrate accurate identification of amino acids

Researchers demonstrate accurate identification of amino acids

Some three billion base pairs make up the human genome-the floor plan of life. In 2003, the Human Genome Project announced the successful decryption of this code, a tour de force that continues to supply a stream of insights relevant to human health and disease. [More]

New improved mass spectrometry for analysis of chemical and biological materials

New improved mass spectrometry for analysis of chemical and biological materials

When it comes to analyzing cell components or body fluids or developing new medications, there is no way around mass spectrometry. Mass spectrometry is a highly sensitive method of measurement that has been used for many years for the analysis of chemical and biological materials. [More]
Glycoprofiling test could halve number of false-positives in diagnosis of ovarian cancer

Glycoprofiling test could halve number of false-positives in diagnosis of ovarian cancer

The world's most widespread test for ovarian cancer reports false-positives in 94 of 100 diagnosed cases. Now, chemists at the University of Copenhagen working with clinical researchers at University College London have developed a method able to halve the number of false-positives. [More]
New sugar-test may reduce false-positive ovarian cancer screening tests

New sugar-test may reduce false-positive ovarian cancer screening tests

The world's most widespread test for ovarian cancer reports false-positives in 94 of 100 diagnosed cases. Now, chemists at the University of Copenhagen working with clinical researchers at University College London have developed a method able to halve the number of false-positives. When fully developed, the new test will spare a significant number of women from unnecessary worry and further testing. Furthermore, global health care providers stand to save substantial sums - just by including a test on a certain sugar molecule in tandem with the currently prevailing diagnostic test. [More]
