CIGB-300 is a proapoptotic peptide-based drug that abrogates the CK2-mediated phosphorylation. This peptide has antineoplastic effect on lung cancer cells in vitro and in vivo. To understand the mechanisms involved on such anticancer activity, the NCI-H125 cell line proteomic profile after short-term incubation (45 min) with CIGB-300 was investigated. As(More)
The bacterial pathogen Vibrio cholerae requires colonizination of the human small intestine to cause cholera. The anaerobic and slightly acidic conditions predominating there enhance toxicity of low copper concentrations and create a selective environment for bacteria with evolved detoxifying mechanisms. We reported previously that the VCA0260, VCA0261 and(More)
Pathogenesis of the facultative anaerobe Vibrio cholerae takes place at the gut under low oxygen concentrations. To identify proteins which change their expression level in response to oxygen availability, proteomes of V. cholerae El Tor C7258 grown in aerobiosis, microaerobiosis and anaerobiosis were compared by two-dimensional electrophoresis. Twenty-six(More)
Proteins are the principal mediators of the functions in the cell; therefore, any abnormal variations on their abundance levels may reflect the presence of pathological processes. In this sense, many researchers rely on the functional interpretation of protein lists generated by quantitative proteomics experiments to analyze, for instance, these variations(More)
A method for quantitative proteomic analysis based on the selective isolation of multiply charged peptides (RH peptides) containing arginine and histidine residues is described. Two pools of proteins are digested in tandem with lysyl-endopeptidase and trypsin and the primary amino groups of proteolytic peptides are separately labeled with d3- and d0-acetic(More)
Over the years the identification of one gene or protein has been substituted by the determination, in a single experiment, of all the genes or proteins expressed in a given cellular state. Consequently, the amount of available data has increased considerably. In this scenario, bioinformatics has become the bridge between experimental data and computational(More)
CIGB-552 is a cell-penetrating peptide that exerts in vitro and in vivo antitumor effect on cancer cells. In the present work, the mechanism involved in such anticancer activity was studied using chemical proteomics and expression-based proteomics in culture cancer cell lines. CIGB-552 interacts with at least 55 proteins, as determined by chemical(More)
The second generation peptide CIGB-552 has a pro-apoptotic effect on H460 non-small cell lung cancer cells and displays a potent cytotoxic effect in HT-29 colon adenocarcinoma cells though its action mechanism is ill defined. Here, we present the first proteomic study of peptide effect in HT-29 cells using subcellular fractionation, protein and peptide(More)
BACKGROUND Growth hormone-releasing peptides (GHRPs) constitute a group of small synthetic peptides that stimulate the growth hormone secretion and the downstream axis activity. Mounting evidences since the early 1980s delineated unexpected pharmacological cardioprotective and cytoprotective properties for the GHRPs. However, despite intense basic(More)
Hylesia metabus is a neotropical moth possessing toxic setae, which once in contact with the skin cause a severe dermatitis to humans known as lepidopterism. The only known function of the setae in the life cycle is to provide protection during the mating and egg-hatching stages. Approximately 65% of the protein content of the setae is a cluster of five(More)
