Aging of the human skin is a complex process that consists of chronological and extrinsic aging, the latter caused mainly by exposure to ultraviolet radiation (pho-toaging). Here we present studies in which we have used proteomic profiling technologies and two-dimensional (2D) PAGE database resources to identify proteins whose expression is deregulated in(More)

Erythema toxicum neonatorum is a common, inflammatory skin reaction in healthy newborn infants characterized by an accumulation of activated immune cells in the lesions. Its etiology and physiologic significance are still unclear. The purpose of this study was to extend the search for possible inflammatory mediators of the rash. We performed(More)
The human genome contains about 30,000 genes, each creating several transcripts per gene. Transcript structures and expression are studied by high-throughput transcriptomic techniques using microarrays. Generally, transcripts are not directly operating molecules, but are translated into functional proteins, post-translationally modified by proteolysis,(More)
Proteomics and immunohistochemistry were used to reveal tumor heterogeneity among urothelial papillomas (UPs) with the long term goal of predicting their biological potential in terms of outcome. First, we identified proteins that were deregulated in invasive fresh lesions as compared with normal urothelium, and thereafter we immunostained UPs with a panel(More)
Decoding of the genome information in terms of regulation and function will be the next great challenge in the life sciences in this millennium and indeed, today we are experiencing a rapid explosion of technology for the high throughput expression analysis of genes and their products (functional genomics). In particular, the field of proteomics is booming(More)
In the search for potential limbal stem cell protein markers, the purpose of this study was to characterize differences in protein expression between human central and limbal corneal epithelium by a proteomic approach using two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (2D PAGE) combined with mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS). The results were subsequently(More)
To generate specific tools for, in particular, localization studies of the eukaryotic elongation factor 1A (eEF1A), we have applied phage display in various formats to affinity-improve and map epitopes of two previously isolated, low-affinity single-chain Fv (scFv) G3 and D1. The scFv differ in their reactivity toward the eEF1A isoforms, eEF1A-1 and(More)
BACKGROUND To identify the pattern of protein expression in the retina from a patient with Leber's Congenital Amaurosis (LCA) secondary to a mutation in the AIPL1 gene. The retina from one eye of a patient with LCA and 7 control eyes were studied. The tissue was subjected to high resolution two-dimensional gel electrophoresis, image analysis and mass(More)
OBJECTIVES Our aim was to identify patterns in differentially regulated proteins associated with the progression of chronic heart failure. We specifically studied proteomics in chronic reversibly (RDM) and irreversibly dysfunctional myocardium (IRDM), as well as end-stage failing myocardium (ESFM). METHODS We studied biopsies from 9 patients with stable(More)
