To evaluate the usefulness of tau proteins as biological markers in the diagnosis of dementia of the Alzheimer type (DAT), we analyzed the concentration of tau proteins in 253 cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) samples from patients with or without neurological disorders. Our study showed a significant increase of the mean CSF tau concentration in DAT patients(More)
Before acquiring their mature state, cochlear hair cells undergo a series of changes in expression of ion channels. How this complex mechanism is achieved is not fully understood. Tmprss3, a type II serine protease expressed in hair cells, is required for their proper functioning at the onset of hearing. To unravel the role of Tmprss3 in the acquisition of(More)
BACKGROUND In current comparative proteomics studies, the large number of images generated by 2D gels is currently compared using spot matching algorithms. Unfortunately, differences in gel migration and sample variability make efficient spot alignment very difficult to obtain, and, as consequence most of the software alignments return noisy gel matching(More)
