Coomassie blue-stained, heat-dried, and computer-imaged two-dimensional gels used to develop comprehensive human protein data bases served as the protein source to generate partial amino acid sequences. The protein spots were collected from multiple gels, rehydrated, concentrated by stacking into a new gel, electroblotted onto inert membranes, and in(More)
A total of 3430 polypeptides (2592 cellular; 838 secreted) from transformed human amnion cells (AMA) labeled with [35S]methionine were separated and recorded using computer-aided two-dimensional (2-D) gel electrophoresis. A master 2-D gel database of cellular protein information that includes both qualitative and quantitative annotations has been(More)
Here, we present a novel strategy for dissecting some of the steps involved in the squamous differentiation of the bladder urothelium leading to squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs). First, we used proteomic technologies and databases (http://biobase.dk/cgi-bin/celis) to reveal proteins that were expressed specifically by fresh normal urothelium and three SCCs(More)
A two-dimensional (2-D) gel database of proteins from noncultured total normal human epidermal keratinocytes has been established. A total of 1449 [35S]methionine labelled proteins (1112 isoelectric focusing, 337 nonequilibrium pH gradient electrophoresis) were resolved and recorded using computer assisted (PDQ-SCAN and PDQUEST software) 2-D gel(More)
Fresh, superficial transitional cell carcinomas (TCCs) of low-grade atypia (3 grade I, Ta; 6 grade II, Ta), as well as primary cultures derived from them were labeled with [35S]methionine for 16 h, between 2 and 6 days after inoculation. Whole protein extracts were subjected to IEF (isoelectric focusing) two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis(More)
Databases of protein information from human embryonal lung fibroblasts (MRC-5) have been established using computer analyzed two-dimensional gel electrophoresis. One thousand four hundred and eighty-two cellular proteins (1060 with isoelectric focusing and 422 with nonequilibrium pH gradient electrophoresis, in the first dimension) ranging in molecular mass(More)
Analysis using two-dimensional (2D) gel electrophoresis of the [35S]-methionine-labelled proteins synthesized by non-cultured total epidermal keratinocytes obtained from normal and psoriatic skin revealed 6 proteins that are strongly up-regulated (5 times or more) in psoriatic skin. These proteins are synthesized at albeit lower levels by keratinocytes from(More)
Multifocal recurrent papillary tumors provide a unique model system to study the molecular mechanisms underlying the steps involved in transitional cell carcinoma progression and offer a valuable source of material to search for biomarkers that may form the basis for diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment. We have examined the protein expression profiles of(More)
In our laboratories we are exploring the possibility of using proteome expression profiles of fresh bladder tumors (transitional cell carcinomas, TCCs; squamous cell carcinomas, SCCs) and random biopsies as fingerprints to subclassify histopathological types and as a starting point to search for protein markers that may form the basis for diagnosis,(More)
The master two-dimensional gel database of human AMA cells currently lists 3801 cellular and secreted proteins, of which 371 cellular polypeptides (306 IEF; 65 NEPHGE) were added to the master images during the last 10 months. These include: (i) very basic and acidic proteins that do not focus under normal running conditions and (ii) low-abundant proteins(More)
