Alterations in mitochondrial function contribute to diabetic cardiomyopathy. We have previously shown that heart mitochondrial proteins are hyper-acetylated in OVE26 mice, a transgenic model of type 1 diabetes. However, the universality of this modification and its functional consequences are not well established. In this study, we demonstrate that Akita type 1 diabetic mice exhibit hyper-acetylation. Functionally, isolated Akita heart mitochondria have significantly impaired maximal (state 3) respiration with physiological pyruvate (0...

Madoka Chinen, Elissa P Lei
Argonaute (AGO) proteins play a central role in the RNA interference (RNAi) pathway, which is a cytoplasmic mechanism important for post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression. In Drosophila, AGO2 also functions in the nucleus to regulate chromatin insulator activity and transcription. Although there are a number of studies focused on AGO2 function, the regulation of AGO2 turnover is not well understood. We found that mutation of T1149 or R1158 in the conserved PIWI domain causes AGO2 protein instability, but only T1149 affects RNAi activity...

Statistical ethylene oxide (EO) and propylene oxide (PO) copolymers of different monomer compositions and different average molar masses additionally containing two kinds of end groups (FTD) were investigated by ultra high pressure liquid chromatography under critical conditions (UP-LCCC) combined with electrospray ionization time-of flight mass spectrometry (ESI-TOF-MS). Theoretical predictions of the existence of a critical adsorption point (CPA) for statistical copolymers with a given chemical and sequence distribution1 could be studied and confirmed...

The secretome, the entirety of all soluble proteins either being secreted or proteolytically released by a cell, plays a key role in intercellular communication of multicellular organisms. Pathological alterations contribute to diseases such as hypertension, cancer, autoimmune disorders or neurodegenerative diseases. Hence, studying disease related perturbations of the secretome and the secretome itself covers an important aspect of cellular physiology. We recently developed the Secretome Protein Enrichment with Click Sugars (SPECS) method which enables the analysis of secretomes of in vitro cell cultures even in the presence of fetal calf serum with mass spectrometry...

Only a tiny fraction of the data and metadata produced by an fMRI study is finally conveyed to the community. This lack of transparency not only hinders the reproducibility of neuroimaging results but also impairs future meta-analyses. In this work we introduce NIDM-Results, a format specification providing a machine-readable description of neuroimaging statistical results along with key image data summarising the experiment. NIDM-Results provides a unified representation of mass univariate analyses including a level of detail consistent with available best practices...

Mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) is a label-free analytical technique capable of molecularly characterizing biological samples, including tissues and cell lines. The constant development of analytical instrumentation and strategies over the previous decade makes MSI a key tool in clinical research. Nevertheless, most MSI studies are limited to targeted analysis or the mere visualization of a few molecular species (proteins, peptides, metabolites, or lipids) in a region of interest without fully exploiting the possibilities inherent in the MSI technique, such as tissue classification and segmentation or the identification of relevant biomarkers from an untargeted approach...

The intention of this tutorial is to introduce into the basic concepts of time-of-flight mass spectrometry, beginning with the most simple single-stage ion source with linear field-free drift region and continuing with two-stage ion sources combined with field-free drift regions and ion reflectors-the so-called reflectrons. Basic formulas are presented and discussed with the focus on understanding the physical relations of geometric and electric parameters, initial distribution of ionic parameters, ion flight times, and ion flight time incertitude...

BACKGROUND: Cardiac metabolism is critical for the functioning of the heart, and disturbance in this homeostasis is likely to influence cardiac disorders or cardiomyopathy. Our laboratory has previously shown that SNRK (sucrose nonfermenting related kinase) enzyme, which belongs to the AMPK (adenosine monophosphate-activated kinase) family, was essential for cardiac metabolism in mammals. Snrk global homozygous knockout (KO) mice die at postnatal day 0, and conditional deletion of Snrk in cardiomyocytes (Snrk cmcKO) leads to cardiac failure and death by 8 to 10 months...

The analysis of illicit drugs in urban wastewater is the basis of wastewater-based epidemiology (WBE), and has received much scientific attention because the concentrations measured can be used as a new non-intrusive tool to provide evidence-based and real-time estimates of community-wide drug consumption. Moreover, WBE allows monitoring patterns and spatial and temporal trends of drug use. Although information and expertise from other disciplines is required to refine and effectively apply WBE, analytical chemistry is the fundamental driver in this field...

The evolution of data exchange in Mass Spectrometry spans decades and has ranged from human-readable text files representing individual scans or collections thereof (McDonald et al., 2004) through the official standard XML-based (Harold, Means, & Udemadu, 2005) data interchange standard (Deutsch, 2012), to increasingly compressed (Teleman et al., 2014) variants of this standard sometimes requiring purely binary adjunct files (Römpp et al., 2011). While the desire to maintain even partial human readability is understandable, the inherent mismatch between XML's textual and irregular format relative to the numeric and highly regular nature of actual spectral data, along with the explosive growth in dataset scales and the resulting need for efficient (binary and indexed) access has led to a phenomenon referred to as "technical drift" (Davis, 2013)...

The study of marine pollution has been traditionally addressed to persistent chemicals, generally known as priority pollutants; a current trend in environmental analysis is a shift toward "emerging pollutants," defined as newly identified or previously unrecognized contaminants. The present review is focused on the peculiar contribution of mass spectrometry (MS) to the study of pollutants in the seawater compartment. The work is organized in five paragraphs where the most relevant groups of pollutants, both "classical" and "emerging," are presented and discussed, highlighting the relative data obtained by the means of different MS techniques...

Hydrogen/Deuterium exchange (HDX) has been applied, since the 1930s, as an analytical tool to study the structure and dynamics of (small) biomolecules. The popularity of using HDX to study proteins increased drastically in the last two decades due to the successful combination with mass spectrometry (MS). Together with this growth in popularity, several technological advances have been made, such as improved quenching and fragmentation. As a consequence of these experimental improvements and the increased use of protein-HDXMS, large amounts of complex data are generated, which require appropriate analysis...

Though an isotope approach could be beneficial for better understanding the biogeochemical cycle of gallium (Ga), an analogue of the monoisotopic element aluminum (Al), the geochemistry of Ga isotopes has not been widely elaborated. We developed a two-step method for purifying Ga from geological (biological) samples for precise measurement of Ga isotope ratio using multicollector inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (MC-ICP-MS). Ga was thoroughly separated from other matrix elements using two chromatographic columns loaded with AG 1-X4 and Ln-spec resin, respectively...

Mass spectrometry-based untargeted metabolomics detects many peaks that cannot be identified. While advances have been made for automatic structure annotations in LC-electrospray-MS/MS, no open source solutions are available for hard electron ionization used in GC-MS. In metabolomics, most compounds bear moieties with acidic protons, for example, amino, hydroxyl, or carboxyl groups. Such functional groups increase the boiling points of metabolites too much for use in GC-MS. Hence, in GC-MS-focused metabolomics, derivatization of these groups is essential and has been employed since the 1960s...

Siderophores are chemically diverse secondary metabolites that primarily assist the host organisms to chelate iron. Siderophores are biosynthesized by many biological organisms, including bacteria, fungi, and plants and they are responsible for a variety of biological functions beyond capture iron. Thus, they could provide a novel understanding of host-pathogen interactions, plant physiology, disease pathogenesis, and drug development. However, knowledge gaps in analytical technologies, chemistry, and biology have severely impeded the applications of siderophores, and a new strategy is urgently needed to bridge these gaps...

Conventional intercalation cathodes for lithium batteries store charge in redox reactions associated with the transition metal cations, e.g., Mn(3+/4+) in LiMn2O4, and this limits the energy storage of Li-ion batteries. Compounds such as Li[Li0.2Ni0.2Mn0.6]O2 exhibit a capacity to store charge in excess of the transition metal redox reactions. The additional capacity occurs at and above 4.5 V versus Li(+)/Li. The capacity at 4.5 V is dominated by oxidation of the O(2-) anions accounting for ∼0.43 e(-)/formula unit, with an additional 0...

Metallosupramolecular architectures are beginning to be exploited for a range of applications including drug delivery, catalysis, molecular recognition, and sensing. For the most part these achievements have been made with high-symmetry metallosupramolecular architectures composed of just one type of ligand and metal ion. Recently, considerable efforts have been made to generate metallosupramolecular architectures that are made up of multiple different ligands and/or metals ions in order to obtain more complex systems with new properties...

A new orthogonal solid-phase iterative strategy is proposed for the synthesis of sequence-coded polymers. This approach relies on the use of two successive chemoselective steps: (i) phosphoramidite coupling, and (ii) radical-radical coupling. These repeated steps can be performed using two different types of building blocks, i.e. a phosphoramidite monomer that also contains an alkyl bromide and a hydroxy-functionalized nitroxide. The phosphoramidite and the hydroxy group are reacted in step (i), thus leading to a phosphite that is oxidized in situ into a phosphate bond...

Metabolic state and chromatin structure are tightly linked, enabling adaptation of gene expression to changing environment and metabolism. The bioenergetic pathways and enzymes that provide metabolic cofactors for histone modification have recently emerged as central regulators of chromatin. Current research therefore focuses on the dynamic interface of cellular metabolism and chromatin structure. Here, we provide an adaptable approach to examine broadly in changing physiological states, how chromatin structure is dynamically modulated by metabolic activity...

Reproducibility has been one of the biggest hurdles faced when attempting to develop quantitative protocols for MALDI mass spectrometry. The heterogeneous nature of sample recrystallization has made automated sample acquisition somewhat "hit and miss" with manual intervention needed to ensure that all sample spots have been analyzed. In this review, we explore the last 30 years of literature and anecdotal evidence that has attempted to address and improve reproducibility in MALDI MS. Though many methods have been attempted, we have discovered a significant publication history surrounding the use of nitrocellulose as a substrate to improve homogeneity of crystal formation and therefore reproducibility...
