Many diseases cause significant changes to the concentrations of small molecules (a.k.a. metabolites) that appear in a person’s biofluids, which means such diseases can often be readily detected from a person’s “metabolic profile"—i.e., the list of concentrations of those metabolites. This information can be extracted from a biofluids Nuclear Magnetic(More)
The homodimeric structure of human S100A16 in the apo state has been obtained both in the solid state and in solution, resulting in good agreement between the structures with the exception of two loop regions. The homodimeric solution structure of human S100A16 was also calculated in the calcium(II)-bound form. Differently from most S100 proteins, the(More)
OBJECTIVE Maternal diabetes increases the risk of perinatal mortality and morbidity, but the maintenance of antenatal normal glucose serum prevents the majority of neonatal complications. The aim of our study is to compare the metabolomic profile of infants of gestational diabetic mothers (IGDMs) to that of infants of healthy mothers to evaluate if(More)
Two types of spectrally overlaid multiple-symbol-rate (MSR) asynchronous multicarrier code division multiple access (MC-CDMA) systems are proposed. One type of systems has constant spreading gain (CSG) and the other has variable spreading gain (VSG) for different services; both systems have different symbol rates at each subcarrier for different services.(More)
Calmodulin is a two-domain protein which in solution can adopt a variety of conformations upon reorientation of its domains. The maximum occurrence (MO) of a set of calmodulin conformations that are representative of the overall conformational space possibly sampled by the protein, has been calculated from the paramagnetism-based restraints. These(More)
Pre-analytical treatments of bacteria are crucial steps in bacterial metabolomics studies. In order to achieve reliable samples that can best represent the global metabolic profile in vivo both qualitatively and quantitatively, many sample treatment procedures have been developed. The use of different methods makes it difficult to compare the results among(More)
Metabolomic profiles of tissues could greatly contribute to advancements in personalized medicine but are influenced by differences in adopted preanalytical procedures; nonhomogeneous pre- and post-excision ischemia times are potential sources of variability. In this study, we monitored the impact of ischemia on the metabolic profiles, acquired with(More)
