Role of metallothionein against oxidative stress in the mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis.
Data suggest an antioxidant role for MT, which seems to occur through oxyradical scavenging and is able to protect both isolated cells and the entire organism from oxidative stress. Expand
Proteomic characterization of copper stress response in Cannabis sativa roots
Investigation of copper effects on the root proteome of C. sativa found differences in protein expression pattern were indicative of a plant adaptation to chronic stress and were directed to the reestablishment of the cellular and redox homeostasis. Expand
Proteomic analysis of Pteris vittata fronds: Two arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi differentially modulate protein expression under arsenic contamination
Up‐regulation of multiple forms of glyceraldehyde‐3‐phosphate dehydrogenase, phosphoglycerate kinase, and enolase, primarily in G. mosseae‐inoculated plants, suggests a central role for glycolytic enzymes in arsenic metabolism. Expand
Biochemical characterization and quantitative gene expression analysis of the multi-stress inducible metallothionein from Tetrahymena thermophila.
A cadmium-binding protein with biochemical features of a metallothionein has been isolated and purified to homogeneity from the ciliate Tetrahymena thermophila and a general role of this protein in stress response is indicated. Expand
Structural proteome of human colostral fat globule membrane proteins
This study aimed to update the structural proteome of human colostral MFGM proteins and to create an annotated two‐dimensional electrophoresis (2‐DE) MFGM protein database available on‐line. Expand
Milk fat globule membrane components--a proteomic approach.
This chapter covers the description of MFGM proteomics from the first studies about 10 years ago through the most recent papers, and most of the investigations deal with MFGMs from human and cow milk. Expand
Effect of hydrogen peroxide on antioxidant enzymes and metallothionein level in the digestive gland of Mytilus galloprovincialis
The pro-oxidant effect of H2O2 at a concentration of 20 μM was examined in the digestive gland of Mytilus galloprovincialis, a bivalve mollusc frequently used in biomonitoring programs. The oxidativeExpand
Human proteome enhancement: High‐recovery method and improved two‐dimensional map of colostral fat globule membrane proteins
A new protocol for the solubilization and extraction of the human milk fat globule membrane proteins with a double extraction procedure is presented, and the results compared with the extraction methods reported in the literature. Expand
Effects of Heavy Metals and Arbuscular Mycorrhiza on the Leaf Proteome of a Selected Poplar Clone: A Time Course Analysis
This work demonstrates how importantly the time of sampling affects the proteome responses in perennial plants and underlines the ability of a proteomic approach, targeted on protein identification, to depict changes in a specific pattern of protein expression, while being still far from elucidating the biological function of each protein.

Proteome profile and biological activity of caprine, bovine and human milk fat globules.
Biological activity of milk fat globules has been evaluated in Caco2-cells, as a representative model of the intestinal barrier, and the increase of cell viability was indicative of a potential nutraceutical role for the whole milkfat globule, suggesting a possible employment in milk formula preparation.
