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)
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)
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)
Matrix clusters and their alkali metal ion adducts suppress peptide signals in the 500-1400 Da range and compromise MALDI-TOF mass spectrometric peptide mass fingerprinting and protein identification. Addition of 7 mM nitrilotriacetic acid to the matrix solution significantly reduced matrix clusters and increased signal-to-noise ratio of peptide signals(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)
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)
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)
A resin-assisted enrichment method has been developed for specific isolation of protein N-terminal peptides to facilitate LC-MS/MS characterization of proteolytic processing, a major form of posttranslational modifications. In this method, protein thiols are blocked by reduction and alkylation, and protein lysine residues are converted to homoarginines.(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)
