Gram-negative bacteria constitutively secrete native outer membrane vesicles (OMVs) into the extracellular milieu. Although recent progress in this area has revealed that OMVs are essential for bacterial survival and pathogenesis, the mechanism of vesicle formation and the biological roles of OMVs have not been clearly defined. Using a proteomics approach,(More)
Proteomic analysis of Pseudomonas putida KT2440 cultured in monocyclic aromatic compounds was performed using 2-DE/MS and cleavable isotope-coded affinity tag (ICAT) to determine whether proteins involved in aromatic compound degradation pathways were altered as predicted by genomic analysis (Jiménez et al., Environ Microbiol. 2002, 4, 824-841). Eighty(More)
Microvesicles (MV) are membrane vesicles secreted from the plasma and endosomal membrane compartment by various cell types such as hematopoietic, epithelial, and tumor cells. Actively growing tumor cells shed MV, and the rate of shedding increases in malignant tumors. Although recent progress in this area has revealed that tumor-derived MV play multiple(More)
Although many reports have been published regarding the pharmacological effects of ginseng, little is known about the biochemical pathways operant in ginsenoside biosynthesis, or the genes involved therein. Proteomics analysis is an approach to elucidate the physiological characteristics and biosynthetic pathways of ginsenosides, main components of ginseng.(More)
Acinetobacter baumannii is a Gram-negative, nonmotile aerobic bacterium that has emerged as an important nosocomial pathogen. Multidrug-resistant (MDR) A. baumannii is difficult to treat with antibiotics, and treatment failure in infected patients is of great concern in clinical settings. To investigate proteome regulation in A. baumannii under antibiotic(More)
Pseudomonas putida KT2440 is a metabolically versatile soil bacterium. To examine the effects of an aromatic compound on the proteome of this bacterium, cytosolic proteins induced by the presence of benzoate and succinate were analyzed using two liquid chromatography (LC)-based proteomic approaches: an isobaric tag for relative and absolute quantitation(More)
The proteome of a HUPO human serum reference sample was analyzed using multidimensional separation techniques at both the protein and the peptide levels. To eliminate false-positive identifications from the search results, we employed a data filtering method using molecular weight (MW) correlations derived from denaturing 1-DE. First, the six most abundant(More)
In shotgun proteomics, proteins can be fractionated by 1-D gel electrophoresis and digested into peptides, followed by liquid chromatography to separate the peptide mixture. Mass spectrometry generates hundreds of thousands of tandem mass spectra from these fractions, and proteins are identified by database searching. However, the search scores are usually(More)
In our initial attempt to analyze the human brain proteome, we applied multi-dimensional protein separation and identification techniques using a combination of sample fractionation, 1-D SDS-PAGE, and MS analysis. The complexity of human brain proteome requires multiple fractionation strategies to extend the range and total number of proteins identified.(More)
We performed comparative proteomic analyses in order to understand the physiological responses of ginseng (Panax ginseng C. A. Meyer) to high light (HL). As a first step, we analyzed the proteins expressed in ginseng leaves. Proteins extracted from leaves were separated by two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. Protein spots were identified by(More)
