HUPO initiated the Plasma Proteome Project (PPP) in 2002. Its pilot phase has (1) evaluated advantages and limitations of many depletion, fractionation, and MS technology platforms; (2) compared PPP reference specimens of human serum and EDTA, heparin, and citrate-anti-coagulated plasma; and (3) created a publicly-available knowledge base(More)
Pheromones are cell type-specific signals used for communication between individuals of the same species. When faced with overcrowding or starvation, Caenorhabditis elegans secrete the pheromone daumone, which facilitates communication between individuals for adaptation to adverse environmental stimuli. Daumone signals C. elegans to enter the dauer stage,(More)
The senescence-accelerated mouse (SAM) is a useful animal model to study aging or age-associated disorders due to its inherited aging phenotype. To investigate proteins involved in the aging process in liver, we compared the young (4- or 20-week old) and the aged group (50-week-old) of SAMP8 (short life span) and SAMR1 (control) mice, and identified 85(More)
Cell migration is a prerequisite for cancer invasion and metastasis, suggesting cell motility as a potential therapeutic target for cancer treatment. A synthetic library was screened to identify inhibitors of tumor cell migration. From this, we discovered that CAC-1098 (aurintricarboxylic acid) and CBI-0997 (5-(2,4-dimethoxy-5-ethylphenyl)-4-(4-bromophenyl)(More)
Though ulcerative colitis (UC)-associated colon cancer develops from dysplastic lesions caused by chronic inflammation, the specific mechanistic link between chronic inflammation and carcinogenesis in colon has not been integrated into molecular understanding. We therefore established an experimental animal model for colitic cancer, and used proteomic(More)
Solid-pseudopapillary neoplasm is an uncommon pancreatic tumor with distinct clinicopathologic features. Solid-pseudopapillary neoplasms are characterized by mutations in exon 3 of CTNNB1. However, little is known about the gene and microRNA expression profiles of solid-pseudopapillary neoplasms. Thus, we sought to characterize solid-pseudopapillary(More)
Lightning Fast is a sensitive fluorescence-based stain for detecting proteins in one-dimensional and two-dimensional polyacrylamide electrophoresis gels. It contains the fluorophore epicocconone from the fungus Epicoccum nigrum that interacts noncovalently with sodium dodecyl sulfate and protein. Stained proteins can be excited optimally by near-ultraviolet(More)
To the Editor: The Chromosome-Centric Human Proteome Project (C-HPP) aims to define the full set of proteins encoded in each chromosome through development of a standardized approach for analyzing the massive proteomic data sets currently being generated from dedicated efforts of national and international teams. The initial goal of the C-HPP is to identify(More)
The high mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) protein, a non-histone nuclear factor, is overexpressed and localizes to the cytoplasm in some cancer cells. However, the mechanism of cytoplasmic HMGB1 transport, extracellular secretion, and its role in cancer progression is not clear. To simulate the activated state of HMGB1, we mutated serine residues of nuclear(More)
Caenorhabditis elegans excretes a dauer pheromone or daumone composed of ascarylose and a fatty acid side chain, the perception of which enables worms to enter the dauer state for long-term survival in an adverse environment. During the course of elucidation of the daumone biosynthetic pathway in which DHS-28 and DAF-22 are involved in peroxisomal(More)
