Oocyte maturation is a complex process and a critical issue in assisted reproduction techniques (ART) in humans and other mammals. We used a sensitive 2-D DIGE saturation labeling approach including an internal pooled standard for quantitative proteome profiling of immature versus in vitro matured bovine oocytes in six independent samples. The study(More)
During the peri-implantation period, molecular signaling between embryo and endometrium (layer of tissue lining the uterus lumen) is supposed to be crucial for the maintenance of pregnancy. To investigate embryo-induced alterations in the proteome of bovine endometrium in the preattachment period (day 18), we used monozygotic cattle twins (generated by(More)
PURPOSE Early stages of various entities of progressive kidney diseases are commonly characterized by development of glomerular hypertrophy and albuminuria. The purpose of the present study was to identify protein biomarker candidates for these glomerular alterations. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Quantitative differences in the glomerular proteomes of two(More)
