The Gene Expression Barcode project, http://barcode.luhs.org, seeks to determine the genes expressed for every tissue and cell type in humans and mice. Understanding the absolute expression of genes across tissues and cell types has applications in basic cell biology, hypothesis generation for gene function and clinical predictions using gene expression(More)
Bone is one of the most intriguing biomaterials found in nature consisting of bundles of collagen helixes, hydroxyapatite, and water, forming an exceptionally tough, yet lightweight material. We present here an experimental tool to map water-dependent subtle changes in triple helical assembly of collagen protein in its absolute native environment. Collagen(More)
The success of Mycobacterium tuberculosis as a pathogen derives from its facile adaptation to the intracellular milieu of human macrophages. To explore this process, we asked whether adaptation also required interference with the metabolic machinery of the host cell. Temporal profiling of the metabolic flux, in cells infected with differently virulent(More)
PURPOSE Qualitative (assignment of lipid components) and quantitative (quantification of lipid components) analysis of lipid components were performed in skeletal muscle tissue of patients with muscular dystrophy in early phase of the disease as compared to control/normal subjects. METHODS Proton nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy based(More)
Molecular mechanism governing biological processes leading to dietary obesity and diabetes are largely unknown. Here we study the liver proteome differentially expressed in a long-term high-fat and high-sucrose diet (HFHSD)-induced obesity and diabetes mouse model. Changes in mouse liver proteins were identified using iTRAQ, offline 2D LC (SCX and RP) and(More)
Bone is the living composite biomaterial having unique structural property. Presently, there is a considerable gap in our understanding of bone structure and composition in the native state, particularly with respect to the trabecular bone, which is metabolically more active than cortical bones, and is readily lost in post-menopausal osteoporosis. We used(More)
Self-assembly of phenylalanine is linked to amyloid formation toxicity in phenylketonuria disease. We are demonstrating that L-phenylalanine self-assembles to amyloid fibrils at varying experimental conditions and transforms to a gel state at saturated concentration. Biophysical methods including nuclear magnetic resonance, resistance by alpha-phenylglycine(More)
We present a general scheme for metabolite quantification from a two-dimensional (2D) (1)H-(13)C heteronuclear single quantum correlation (HSQC) nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) experiment of body fluids observed in natural abundance. The scheme of quantification from 2D HSQC spectra consists of measurement of relaxation parameters of proton resonances,(More)
Collagen-induced arthritis (CIA) was induced in female Wistar rats by intradermal injection of porcine immunization grade native collagen type II (Chondrex). Development and progression of CIA was monitored by studying histopathological, radiographical and biochemical features of arthritic manifestations in the knee joints, hind limb and blood plasma. In(More)
Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) contributes substantially to mortality and morbidity in USA and worldwide. Due to limitations in early diagnostics of ARDS by classical methods, there has been need for discovery of novel methods and biomarkers for its characterization. We present here first high-resolution 1H nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR)(More)
