Alzheimer's disease is characterized by neurodegeneration and deposition of betaA4, a peptide that is proteolytically released from the amyloid precursor protein (APP). Missense mutations in the genes coding for APP and for the polytopic membrane proteins presenilin (PS) 1 and PS2 have been linked to familial forms of early-onset Alzheimer's disease.(More)
The thermal stability of proteins can be used to assess ligand binding in living cells. We have generalized this concept by determining the thermal profiles of more than 7000 proteins in human cells by means of mass spectrometry. Monitoring the effects of small-molecule ligands on the profiles delineated more than 50 targets for the kinase inhibitor(More)
We extended thermal proteome profiling to detect transmembrane protein-small molecule interactions in cultured human cells. When we assessed the effects of detergents on ATP-binding profiles, we observed shifts in denaturation temperature for ATP-binding transmembrane proteins. We also observed cellular thermal shifts in pervanadate-induced T cell-receptor(More)
This document demonstrates how to analyze TPP-TR (temperature range) experiments by the NPARC approach. NPARC is a recent extension to the TPP package. It offers a novel methodology to model the temperature dependent melting behavior of each protein, and to detect significant changes in this behaviour due to changes in experimental conditions like drug(More)
The genes encoding presenilin-1 (PS1) and presenilin-2 (PS2) were identified as the genes that harbour mutations that cause more than 60% of early onset familial Alzheimer's disease cases (FAD) (1-3). So far, more than 40 missense mutations have been described for presenilin-1 and two have been found in the gene coding for presenilin-2 (reviewed in refs. 4(More)
