A by-product in the processing of prostate tissue for cell sorting by collagenase digestion is the media supernatant that remains after the cells are harvested. These supernatants contain proteins made by the cells within the tissue. Quantitative proteomic analysis of N-glycosylated proteins detected an increased amount of CD90/THY1 in cancer supernatants(More)
Sensitive detection of low-abundance proteins in complex biological samples has typically been achieved by immunoassays that use antibodies specific to target proteins; however, de novo development of antibodies is associated with high costs, long development lead times, and high failure rates. To address these challenges, we developed an antibody-free(More)
TRBP functions as both a Dicer cofactor and a PKR inhibitor. However, the role of TRBP in microRNA (miRNA) biogenesis is controversial and its regulation of PKR in mitosis remains unexplored. Here, we generate TRBP knockout cells and find altered Dicer-processing sites in a subset of miRNAs but no effect on Dicer stability, miRNA abundance, or Argonaute(More)
Selected reaction monitoring (SRM)-MS is an emerging technology for high throughput targeted protein quantification and verification in biomarker discovery studies; however, the cost associated with the application of stable isotope-labeled synthetic peptides as internal standards can be prohibitive for screening a large number of candidate proteins as(More)
This paper presents a CORBA-based Quality-of-Service (QoS) management framework for distributed multimedia services and applications. The QoS MIB has been defined for the QoS management of various multimedia services, and consists of information objects that represent a set of layered QoS parameters. These managed objects are organized into four logical(More)
Nanoparticle biological activity, biocompatibility and fate can be directly affected by layers of readily adsorbed host proteins in biofluids. Here, we report a study on the interactions between human blood plasma proteins and nanoparticles with a controlled systematic variation of properties using (18)O-labeling and LC-MS-based quantitative proteomics. We(More)
The architecture of avionics systems is moving from federated to integrated architecture called Integrated Modular Avionics (IMA). In the IMA architecture, several avionics applications can be transparently integrated on the same computing device and communicate with others without knowing whether others are running on the same node or not. However, the(More)
S-nitrosylation, the formation of S-nitrosothiol (SNO), is an important reversible thiol oxidation event that has been increasingly recognized for its role in cell signaling. Although many proteins susceptible to S-nitrosylation have been reported, site-specific identification of physiologically relevant SNO modifications remains an analytical challenge(More)
Partially tryptic peptides are often identified in shotgun proteomics using trypsin as the proteolytic enzyme; however, their sources have been controversial. Herein, we investigate the impact of in-source fragmentation on shotgun proteomics profiling of three biological samples: a standard protein mixture, a mouse brain tissue homogenate, and mouse plasma.(More)
