The detection and quantification of protein-ligand binding interactions is crucial in a number of different areas of biochemical research from fundamental studies of biological processes to drug discovery efforts. Described here is a protocol that can be used to identify the protein targets of biologically relevant ligands (e.g., drugs such as tamoxifen or(More)
Shotgun proteomics protocols are widely used for the identification and/or quantitation of proteins in complex biological samples. Described here is a shotgun proteomics protocol that can be used to identify the protein targets of biologically relevant ligands in complex protein mixtures. The protocol combines a quantitative proteomics platform with a(More)
The determination of morphine and its isobaric metabolites morphine-3-beta-d-glucuronide (M3G) and morphine-6-beta-d-glucuronide (M6G) is useful for therapeutic drug monitoring and forensic identification of drug use. In particular, capillary electrophoresis with mass spectrometry (CE-MS) represents an attractive tool for opioid analysis. Whereas volatile(More)
Corneal endothelial cells were perfused in the specular microscope with varying concentrations of rose bengal. Corneas perfused with rose bengal in concentrations of 10(-6)M to 10(-5)M and exposed to light for periods of 0.5 to 5 min swelled at rates which were more rapid with both increasing concentration of rose bengal and increasing duration of light(More)
Only trace amounts of parent benzodiazepines are present in urine following extensive metabolism and conjugation. Thus, hydrolysis of glucuronides is necessary for improved detection. Enzyme hydrolysis is preferred to retain identification specificity, but can be costly and time-consuming. The assessment of a novel recombinant β-glucuronidase for rapid(More)
Described here is the development of a mass spectrometry-based covalent labeling protocol that utilizes the reaction of dimethyl(2-hydroxy-5-nitrobenzyl)sulfonium bromide (HNSB) with tryptophan (Trp) residues to measure protein folding free energies (ΔG(f) values). In the protocol, the chemical denaturant dependence of the rate at which globally protected(More)
Detection and quantitation of protein-ligand binding interactions is important in many areas of biological research. Stability of proteins from rates of oxidation (SPROX) is an energetics-based technique for identifying the proteins targets of ligands in complex biological mixtures. Knowing the false-positive rate of protein target discovery in(More)
Treatment adherence is often an issue with mental health patients. For those prescribed quetiapine (Seroquel®), the low levels of parent drug and plasma metabolite(s) (e.g., 7-hydroxyquetiapine) typically used in urine drug monitoring can result in false negatives with concomitant unfavorable impacts on patient care. Literature review coupled with liquid(More)
