Within human health research, the remarkable utility of kinase inhibitors as therapeutics has motivated efforts to understand biology at the level of global cellular kinase activity (the kinome). In contrast, the diminished potential for using kinase inhibitors in food animals has dampened efforts to translate this research approach to livestock species. This, in our opinion, was a lost opportunity for livestock researchers given the unique potential of kinome analysis to offer insight into… Expand
PIIKA 2.5: Enhanced quality control of peptide microarrays for kinome analysis
It is shown that two essential quality control metrics demonstrably enhance kinome analysis by identifying low quality data and reducing batch effects, and ultimately improve clustering of treatment groups and enhance reproducibility. Expand
EPIphany—A Platform for Analysis and Visualization of Peptide Immunoarray Data
Antibodies are critical effector molecules of the humoral immune system. Upon infection or vaccination, populations of antibodies are generated which bind to various regions of the invading pathogenExpand

Identification of developmentally-specific kinotypes and mechanisms of Varroa mite resistance through whole-organism, kinome analysis of honeybee
Gene ontology analysis of the differentially phosphorylated peptides indicates that the differential susceptibility to Varroa mite infestation does not reflect compromised immunity; rather, there is evidence for mite-mediated immune suppression within the susceptible phenotype that may reduce the ability of bees to counter secondary viral infections.

Kinotypes: stable species- and individual-specific profiles of cellular kinase activity
Species-specific kinotypes could have applications in disease research by facilitating the selection of appropriate animal models or by revealing a baseline kinomic signature to which treatment-induced profiles could be compared, where the identification of molecular patterns or signatures within the kinome may depend on both the levels of kinome diversity and temporal stability across individuals.

Induction of tissue- and stressor-specific kinomic responses in chickens exposed to hot and cold stresses.
The development of a chicken-specific peptide array and its application to characterizing kinome responses within the breast and thigh muscles of poultry subject to temperature stress are reported on to offer insight into the unique susceptibilities, as well as functional consequences, of these tissues to thermal stress.

A Systematic Approach for Analysis of Peptide Array Kinome Data
A new method of analysis of kinome data takes account of the differences between peptide arrays and DNA microarrays and found that this approach identified more of the peptides involved in the pathways than did the other compared methods and that it did so at a much higher degree of statistical confidence.

Genome to Kinome: Species-Specific Peptide Arrays for Kinome Analysis
It is demonstrated that it is possible to predict the sequence contexts of phosphorylation events in other species for the production of peptide arrays for kinome analysis and is anticipated that these arrays will be valuable for investigating the conservation of biological responses across species, validating animal models of disease, and translating research to clinical applications.
