Proteomics News and Research RSS Feed - Proteomics News and Research

The term 'proteome' was first coined in 1994, and refers to all the proteins in a cell, tissue, or organism. Proteomics refers to the study of the proteome. Because proteins are involved in almost all biological activities, the proteome is a rich source of biological information.
EPFL scientists discover cause for immune attack in type-1 diabetes

EPFL scientists discover cause for immune attack in type-1 diabetes

Type-1 diabetes occurs when immune cells attack the pancreas. EPFL scientists have now discovered what may trigger this attack, opening new directions for treatments. [More]
dsDNA quantification for next generation sequencing quality control: an interview with Andrew Jones

dsDNA quantification for next generation sequencing quality control: an interview with Andrew Jones

Quantity and quality of input samples are two key considerations in successful library preparation for next generation sequencing. The ultimate success or failure of a library preparation is often... [More]
Using urine samples to diagnose disease in preterm newborns

Using urine samples to diagnose disease in preterm newborns

The majority of patients in neonatal intensive care units are premature babies, who often have infectious (congenital pneumonia) or noninfectious (tachypnea, infant respiratory distress syndrome) respiratory pathologies. [More]
Scientists turn iron-scavenging power against common UTI-causing bacteria

Scientists turn iron-scavenging power against common UTI-causing bacteria

For most invading bacteria, the bladder is not a friendly place. But for those that have figured out how to scavenge iron from their hosts, it's a fine place to grow and reproduce. [More]
Proteins in the blood of children can predict risk for incipient type 1 diabetes

Proteins in the blood of children can predict risk for incipient type 1 diabetes

Certain proteins in the blood of children can predict incipient type 1 diabetes, even before the first symptoms appear. A team of scientists at the Helmholtz Zentrum M√ľnchen, partners in the German Center for Diabetes Research, reported these findings in the 'Diabetologia' journal. [More]

Researchers at Brigham and Women's Hospital have found two new potential drug targets for treating arterial diseases such as atherosclerosis. [More]
Scientists suggest potential approach of lowering tau levels to thwart Alzheimer's disease

Scientists suggest potential approach of lowering tau levels to thwart Alzheimer's disease

Taking a pill that prevents the accumulation of toxic molecules in the brain might someday help prevent or delay Alzheimer's disease, according to scientists at Baylor College of Medicine, Texas Children's Hospital and Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. [More]
Researchers identify proteins in the blood that could improve detection of pancreatic cancer

Researchers identify proteins in the blood that could improve detection of pancreatic cancer

Pancreatic cancer is one of the most lethal forms of cancer because early stage symptoms are relatively light, often resulting in it being discovered only after spreading to other organs. In order to improve the prognosis of pancreatic cancer, the development of methods for early detection of pancreatic cancer with a blood test is important. [More]
Gut microbes can modify our mood and behaviour, research reveals

Gut microbes can modify our mood and behaviour, research reveals

If aliens were to examine a human, they would think we were just slavish organisms designed to feed microbes and carry them around. [More]
Biomedical researchers develop new RNA ligase for laboratory use

Biomedical researchers develop new RNA ligase for laboratory use

Ligases are enzymes that serve critical functions in cells, helping to fuse together broken strands of DNA and RNA. These enzymes are also important bioengineering tools, useful in genetic sequencing, mutation detection and other applications. [More]
Treatment using PARP inhibitor shrinks tumors in breast cancer patients with BRCA mutations

Treatment using PARP inhibitor shrinks tumors in breast cancer patients with BRCA mutations

All 13 newly diagnosed breast cancer patients with BRCA mutations had their tumors shrink significantly when treated with a PARP inhibitor ahead of frontline presurgical chemotherapy in a pilot study at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. [More]
New lab-on-a-chip system can detect effects of toxic substances on hemoglobin in blood

New lab-on-a-chip system can detect effects of toxic substances on hemoglobin in blood

A new lab-on-a-chip system, developed by the University of Twente in The Netherlands, is capable of fast analysis of the effects of toxic substances on hemoglobin, for example. It mimicks human metabolism. [More]
MSU experts pioneer pathways to new treatment options for pneumonia

MSU experts pioneer pathways to new treatment options for pneumonia

Streptococcus pneumoniae likely is not a term immediately recognizable by most individuals, even if they have had unpleasant run-ins with the common bacterium. However, experts at Mississippi State University are pioneering pathways to new treatment options. [More]
Experts develop urine-based method to diagnose conditions in newborn babies

Experts develop urine-based method to diagnose conditions in newborn babies

Experts from the V. I. Kulakov Research Center for Obstetrics, Gynecology and Perinatology and the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology have devised a method that uses the urinary proteome to diagnose conditions in newborn babies. [More]
