The mission of the Chromosome-Centric Human Proteome Project (C-HPP), is to map and annotate the entire predicted human protein set (~20,000 proteins) encoded by each chromosome. The initial steps of the project are focused on "missing proteins (MPs)", which lacked documented evidence for existence at protein level. In addition to remaining 2,579 MPs, we also target those annotated proteins having unknown functions, uPE1 proteins, alternative splice isoforms and post-translational modifications. We also consider how to investigate various protein functions involved in cis-regulatory phenomena, amplicons lncRNAs and smORFs...

Heat shock protein 90 (HSP90) regulates protein homeostasis in eukaryotes. As a "professional interactor", HSP90 binds to and chaperones many proteins and has both housekeeping and disease-related functions but its regulation remains in part elusive. HSP90 complexes are a target for therapy, notably against cancer, and several inhibitors are currently in clinical trials. Proteomic studies have revealed the vast interaction network of HSP90 and, in doing so, the extent of cellular processes the chaperone takes part in, especially in yeast and human cells...

Chromatin remodeling complexes play important roles in the control of genome regulation in both normal and diseased states, and are therefore critical components for the regulation of epigenetic states in cells. Given the role epigenetics plays in cancer, for example, chromatin remodeling complexes are routinely targeted for therapeutic intervention. Areas covered: Protein mass spectrometry and proteomics are powerful technologies used to study and understand chromatin remodeling. While impressive progress has been made in this area, there remain significant challenges in the application of proteomic technologies to the study of chromatin remodeling...

BACKGROUND: Fluoroquinolone resistance in nontyphoidal Salmonella is a situation of serious and international concern, particularly in S. Typhimurium DT104B multiresistant strains. Although known to be multifactorial, fluoroquinolone resistance is still far from a complete understanding. METHODS: Subproteome changes between an experimentally selected fluoroquinolone-resistant strain (Se6-M) and its parent strain (Se6), and also in Se6-M under ciprofloxacin (CIP) stress, were evaluated in order to give new insights into the mechanisms involved...

Much of the efforts to develop a vaccine against the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) have focused on the design of recombinant mimics of the viral attachment glycoprotein (Env). The leading immunogens exhibit native-like antigenic properties and are being investigated for their ability to induce broadly neutralizing antibodies (bNAbs). Understanding the relative abundance of glycans at particular glycosylation sites on these immunogens is important as most bNAbs have evolved to recognize or evade the dense coat of glycans that masks much of the protein surface...

The troponin complex consists of three proteins that fundamentally couple excitation with contraction. Circulating cardiac-specific Troponin I (cTnI) serves as diagnostic biomarker tools for risk stratification of acute coronary syndromes and acute myocardial infarction (MI). Within the heart, cTnI oscillates between inactive and active conformations to either block or disinhibit actinomyosin formation. This molecular mechanism is fine-tuned through extensive protein modifications whose profiles are maladaptively altered with co-morbidities including hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, diabetes, and heart failure...
