BACKGROUND Glycosylated proteins play important roles in cell-to-cell interactions, immunosurveillance, and a variety of receptor-mediated and specific protein functions through a highly complex repertoire of glycan structures. Aberrant glycosylation has been implicated in cancer for many years. METHODS We performed specific MALDI mass spectrometry(More)
The consumption of a diet low in fat and enhanced by fruits and vegetables, especially rich in phenolic compounds, may reduce risks of many civilization diseases. The use of traditional medicines, mainly derived from plant sources, has become an attractive segment in the management of many lifestyle diseases. Concerning the application of dietary(More)

Altered branching and aberrant expression of N-linked glycans is known to be associated with disease states such as cancer. However, the complexity of determining such variations hinders the development of specific glycomic approaches for assessing disease states. Here, we examine a combination of ion mobility spectrometry (IMS) and mass spectrometry (MS)(More)
Cataract, the opacification of eye lens, is the leading cause of blindness worldwide. At present, the only remedy is surgical removal of the cataractous lens and substitution with a lens made of synthetic polymers. However, besides significant costs of operation and possible complications, an artificial lens just does not have the overall optical qualities(More)
We present a computational framework for analysis of MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry data to enable quantitative comparison of glycans in serum. The proposed framework enables a systematic selection of glycan structures that have good generalization capability in distinguishing subjects from two pre-labeled groups. We applied the proposed method for a biomarker(More)
The study was focused to the influence of higher intake of cholesterol on properties of the renal Na,K-ATPase, a key system in maintaining the homeostasis of sodium in the organism. Feeding for 4 weeks with cholesterol-enriched food for rats afflicted with hereditary hypertriglyceridemia by itself enhanced the activity of Na,K-ATPase, probably as a(More)
