Health diets that contain immunostimulants and other functional ingredients can strengthen the immune response in Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar, and thereby reduce sea lice, Lepeophtheirus salmonis, infection levels. Such diets can be used to supplement other treatments and will potentially reduce the need for delousing and medication. A sea lice infection(More)
BACKGROUND Cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN), a frequently encountered disease caused by Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) is often diagnosed in formaldehyde-fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) punch biopsies. Since it is known that this procedure strongly affects the water-soluble proteins contained in the cervical tissue we decided to investigate whether a(More)
Regression of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) 2-3 to CIN 1 or less is associated with immune response as demonstrated by immunohistochemistry in formaldehyde-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) biopsies. Proteomic analysis of water-soluble proteins in supernatants of biopsy samples with LC-MS (LTQ-Orbitrap) was used to identify proteins predictive of(More)
BACKGROUND Cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) grades 2 and 3 are usually grouped and treated in the same way as "high grade", in spite of their different risk to cancer progression and spontaneous regression rates. CIN2-3 is usually diagnosed in formaldehyde-fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) punch biopsies. This procedure virtually eliminates the(More)
SELDI-TOF MS has been demonstrated as a powerful tool for biomarker discovery. However, a major disadvantage of SELDI-TOF MS is the lack of direct identification of the discriminatory peaks discovered. We describe a novel experimental identification strategy where peptides/proteins captured to a weak cation exchange ProteinArray surface (CM10) are eluted,(More)
Understanding the complex biology of the brain requires analyzing its structural and functional complexity at the protein level. The large-scale analysis of the brain proteome, coupled with characterization of central brain proteins, provides insight into fundamental brain processes and processes linked to neurodegenerative diseases. Here we provide a map(More)
Because Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) has high economic value and its protein-rich muscle tissue is a food source, an increased understanding of the effects and consequences of environmental, nutritional, biological, and industrial factors on meat quality is necessary. To gain insight into cod muscle tissue protein composition, a large-scale proteomics(More)
For the environmental monitoring of coral, mucus appears to be an appropriate biological matrix due to its array of functions in coral biology and the non-intrusive manner in which it can be collected. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the feasibility of using mucus of the stony coral Lophelia pertusa (L. pertusa) as an analytical matrix for(More)
Exposure to natural and anthropogenic compounds can potentially alter the proteome in body fluids and tissues of living organisms, and by applying proteomics it is possible to discover, identify and understand such alterations. This study show results from a proteomic approach where one- or multidimensional separation (MudPIT) combined with high-accuracy(More)
