Although protection against necrosis has been observed in both hibernating (HIB) and ischemic preconditioned hearts in the second window of protection (SWOP), a comparison of the mitochondrial proteome between the two entities has not been previously performed. Anesthetized swine underwent instrumentation with a fixed constrictor around the LAD artery and(More)
OBJECTIVES Idiopathic calcium oxalate (CaOx) stones are believed to develop attached to papillary subepithelial deposits called Randall's plaques. Calcium phosphate (CaP) stones, conversely, are thought to arise within the inner medullary collecting ducts, enlarging and damaging surround tubular structures as they expand. If this is true, we theorize that(More)
We tested the chemopreventive efficacy of indole-3-carbinol (I3C), a constituent of Brassica vegetables, and its major condensation product, 3,3'-diindolylmethane (DIM), against lung tumorigenesis induced by a mixture of 4-(methylnitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanone (NNK) and benzo[a]pyrene (BaP) in A/J mice. The mixture of NNK plus BaP (2 micromol each)(More)
Matrix stones are radiolucent bodies that present as soft muco-proteinaceous material within the renal collecting system. Following wide-angle X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM), we homogenized a surgically removed matrix stone, extracted and purified protein, and analyzed samples using tandem mass spectrometry for proteomic(More)
Photosystem II (PSII) catalyzes the light-driven oxidation of water and the reduction of plastoquinone; the oxidation of water occurs at a cluster of four manganese. The PSII CP43 subunit functions in light harvesting, and mutations in the fifth luminal loop (E) of CP43 have established its importance in PSII structure and/or assembly [Kuhn, M. G. &(More)
Agrobacterium tumefaciens VirB proteins are essential for gene transfer from bacteria to plants. These proteins are postulated to form a transport pore to allow transfer of the T-strand DNA intermediate. To study the function of the VirB proteins in DNA transfer, we developed an expression system in A. tumefaciens. Analysis of one VirB protein, VirB9, by(More)
Peripheral tissue injury is associated with changes in protein expression in sensory neurons that may contribute to abnormal nociceptive processing. We used cultured dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons as a model of axotomized neurons to investigate early changes in protein expression after nerve injury. Comparing protein levels immediately after DRG(More)
We have shown that, in contrast to selenomethionine (SeMet) or selenite, methylseleninic acid (MSeA) and Se-methylselenocysteine (MSeC) exert prostate cancer (PCa) inhibitory effect in preclinical models. Here we investigated the prostate proteome signatures of mice treated with each selenium (Se) form for hypothesis generation concerning their potential in(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Previous efforts to identify the protein content of stone matrix have been limited by the lack of technology necessary to analyze the highly insoluble protein-crystalline complex. Our study objective is to characterize the matrix of calcium oxalate monohydrate (COM) stones using a comprehensive proteomics approach. MATERIALS AND(More)
We are interested in the biological as well as the molecular processes involved in natural killer (NK) cell development and function. Determining the proteomic complement could be a useful tool in predicting cellular function and fate. For the first time shown here, we have utilized iTRAQ, a new method that allows identification and quantification of(More)
