In order to study the involvement of metals in the progression of Alzheimer’s disease, serum samples from patients with Alzheimer and mild cognitive impairment were investigated. For this purpose, metal content was analyzed after size-fractionation of species and then, inter-element and inter-fraction ratios were computed. In this way, the analysis allowed(More)
A metallomic analytical approach based on the use of size exclusion chromatography coupled to ICP-MS has been used to obtain metal profiles related to overexpression or inhibition of metal-binding biomolecules, which is connected to exposure experiment of laboratory mice Mus musculus to toxic metals, such as Cd, Hg and As. Exposure to Cd induces the(More)
Characterization of Cd-binding proteins has great analytical interest due to the high toxicity of Cd to living organisms. Metallothioneins (MTs), as Cd(II)-binding proteins are of increasing interest, since they form very stable Cd chelates and are involved in many detoxification processes. In this work, inductively coupled plasma octopole reaction cell(More)
Cadmium (Cd) is an environmental pollutant that accumulates in the organisms causing serious health problems. Over the past decades, omics studies have been conducted trying to elucidate changes in the genome, the transcriptome or the proteome after Cd exposure. Metabolomics is relatively new to the omics revolution, but has shown enormous potential for(More)
Here we report a preliminary working scheme for the integrative application of transcriptomic, proteomic, and metallomic methodologies in environmental monitoring, by using as sentinel the wildlife species Mus spretus and as reference the gene/protein sequence databases from the key model species Mus musculus. We have demonstrated that the absolute(More)
Mass spectrometry (MS)-based toxicometabolomics requires analytical approaches for obtaining unbiased metabolic profiles. The present work explores the general application of direct infusion MS using a high mass resolution analyzer (a hybrid systems triple quadrupole–time-of-flight) and a complementary gas chromatography–MS analysis to mitochondria extracts(More)
Inflammation plays a prominent role in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease, affecting both brain and the peripheral system. Thus, modulation of inflammation in animal models of this neurodegenerative disorder may be of great interest to elucidate the pathological mechanisms underlying this inflammatory component. To this end, a metabolomic investigation(More)
