Abstract Plasma proteome analysis requires sufficient power to compare numerous samples and detect changes in protein modification, because the protein content of human samples varies significantly among individuals, and many plasma proteins undergo changes in the bloodstream. A label-free proteomics platform developed in our laboratory, termed “Two-Dimensional Image Converted Analysis of Liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry (2DICAL),” is capable of these tasks. Here, we describe successful detection of novel prolyl hydroxylation of α-fibrinogen using 2DICAL, based on comparison of plasma samples of 38 pancreatic cancer patients and 39 healthy subjects. Using a newly generated monoclonal antibody 11A5, we confirmed the increase in prolyl-hydroxylated α-fibrinogen plasma levels and identified prolyl 4-hydroxylase A1 as a key enzyme for the modification. Competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay of 685 blood samples revealed dynamic changes in prolyl-hydroxylated α-fibrinogen plasma level depending on clinical status. Prolyl-hydroxylated α-fibrinogen is presumably controlled by multiple biological mechanisms, which remain to be clarified in future studies.

Argonaute proteins are a part of a larger RNA interference (RNAi) complex, RISC, in which they mediate cleavage of target mRNAs. In this study, Shi and colleagues show that Ago2 interacts with and is hydroxylated by type I collagen prolyl-4-hydroxylase. When this activity is depleted in human or mouse cells, the level of Ago2 is reduced and siRISC activity mediated by the let-7 miRNA is affected. These results suggest that hydroxylation of Ago2, by affecting its stability, can influence the effi...

Background & Aims: The function of β-catenin as a transcriptional coactivator of T-cell factor-4 (TCF-4) is crucial for colorectal carcinogenesis. However, β-catenin has no nuclear localization signal, and the mechanisms by which β-catenin is imported into the nucleus and forms a complex with the TCF-4 nuclear protein are poorly understood. Methods: Proteins of 2 colorectal cancer cell lines, HCT-116 and DLD1, were immunoprecipitated with anti-TCF-4 antibody and analyzed directly by nanoflow liq...

Over the past decade, a series of experimental strategies for mass spectrometry based quantitative proteomics and corresponding computational methodology for the processing of the resulting data have been generated. We provide here an overview of the main quantification principles and available software solutions for the analysis of data generated by liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry (LC-MS). Three conceptually different methods to perform quantitative LC-MS experiments have bee...

Background & Aims: The Wnt signaling pathway is activated constitutively in the majority of colorectal cancers as a result of mutation in either the adenomatous polyposis coli or the CTNNB1 gene, and blockage of the pathway has been considered feasible as molecular therapy against colorectal cancer. DNA topoisomerase IIα (Topo IIα) is a component of the β-catenin/T-cell factor-4 (TCF-4) nuclear complex. We examined the functional significance of Topo IIα in Wnt signaling. Methods: The physical a...

: Coagulation of blood is such an evident phenomenon that its observation can be traced back to earliest historical times. The great philosophers and physicians of antiquity discussed and provided interesting explanations. However, it was not until the end of the seventeenth century that the structural component of the blood clot was described by Malpighi as a white fibrous substance. In the middle of the nineteenth century this was identified as a constituent of pathological thrombi and given t...

: In healthy individuals fibrinogen occurs in more than one million non-identical forms because of the many possible combinations of biosynthetically or postbiosynthetically modified or genetically polymorphic sites. The various forms may show considerable differences in their functional properties. Normal variant sites are due to alternative splicing, modification of certain amino acid residues, and proteolysis. Both the Aα and the γ chain occur in two splice forms, and it is known that only th...

Summary Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are associated with the refractory nature of cancer, and elucidating the targetable pathways for CSCs is crucial for devising innovative antitumor therapies. We find that the proliferation of CSC-enriched colon spheroids from clinical specimen is dependent on mTORC1 kinase, which is activated by reactive oxygen species (ROS) produced by NOX1, an NADPH oxidase. In the spheroid-derived xenograft tumors, NOX1 is preferentially expressed in LGR5-positive cells. Depen...

Circulating peptide is a potential source of biomarkers for cancer detection. However, the existence of large molecular weight proteins in plasma have a disastrous effect on circulating peptides isolating and detecting. Herein, nanotrap fractionation following by mass spectrometry have been applied to quantify the levels of bradykinin (BK) and hydroxylated bradykinin (Hyp-BK) as a relative measure of KRAS-regulated Prolyl-4-hydroxylase alpha-1 (P4HA1) which may serve as early diagnosis marker fo...
Abstract Aims In this study, we applied quantitative proteomic analysis to identify urinary proteins associated with diabetic nephropathy (DN). Methods Two-dimensional image-converted analysis of liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry detected the proteins differentially excreted between normoalbuminuric and macroalbuminuric patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) (n = 6 each). Urinary levels of excreted proteins were measured by multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) analysis using an in...

Over 400 million years ago, the evolution of vertebrates gave rise to a life cycle in which the organism began to live longer particularly as an adult. To accommodate such a longer lifespan, the organism underwent adaptation, developing a mechanism for long-lived cellular homeostasis. This adaptation required a population of long-lived relatively quiescent somatic stem cells (SSCs) along with a more proliferative differentiated daughter cell population, and was necessary to safeguard the genetic...

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (or IPF for short) is a rare disease that scars the lungs. The condition gets worse over time, making it harder and harder to breathe, and eventually leading to death. Patients typically only survive for a few years after being diagnosed with IPF. This is because, as yet, there is no cure; the available treatments only act to lessen the symptoms. Several risk factors have linked to the development of IPF, among them, the presence of short telomeres. Like the plastic...

Abstract Genome mutually interacts with internal and external environmental factors to result in different phenome that contains two important elements of proteins and metabolites, which link genome to predictive, preventive and personalized medicine (PPPM) or precision medicine (PM). Proteomic variations are the final presentation of the genomic and transcriptomic variations, and are involved in a wide range of variations including copy number of protein, splicing, post-translational modificati...

: Idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (iNPH) is caused by the accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and is characterized by gait disturbance, urinary incontinence, and dementia. iNPH dementia is treatable by shunt operation; however, since the cognitive symptoms of iNPH are often similar to those of other dementias, including Alzheimer's disease (AD), accurate diagnosis of iNPH is difficult. To overcome this problem, the identification of novel diagnostic markers to distinguish iNPH and...

Abstract Prostate-specific antigen is currently the only protein biomarker routinely used as a diagnostic tool for early detection and treatment monitoring of prostate cancer. However, it remains questionable whether prostate-specific antigen-based screening can sensitively and selectively identify the presence and progression status of primary and metastatic prostate cancers. Hence, the purpose of this study was to identify potential biomarker candidates in the secretome of primary and metastat...
