Development of sample preparation methods for shotgun proteomic studies of white adipose tissue
Due to the lack of sunlight during the winter, people living in the arctic are unable to produce vitamin D3; hence deficiency of such vitamin is common in this part of the world. Given the geographic location of Norway, development of vitamin D deficiency is a common phenomenon. As vitamin D deficiency has become a public health issue, understanding the effects is vital for clinical implications. Studies have suggested that adipose tissues may be a direct target of vitamin D; especially the role of vitamin D in preventing the formation and development of adipocyte and of which has become of great interest to this study. Therefore, in order to investigate the potential role of vitamin D deficiency in relation to adipose tissue, Liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) based shotgun analysis of adipose tissue proteome seems appropriate for this study. This research seeks to develop a method that will quantify and identify white adipose tissue proteins. Hence, the appropriate method identify will be used in a vitamin D placebo controlled trial. To address this, the following seven different detergents efficiency methods to extract hydrophobic proteins were compared in triplicates for each sample as follows: PPS Silent (Sodium 3-(4-(1,1-bis (hexyloxy) ethyl) pyridinium-1-yl)- propane-1-sulfonate), ProteaseMAX (Sodium 3-((1-(furan-2-yl) undecyloxy) carbonylamino) propane-1-sulfonate), RapiGest (Sodium 3-[(2-methyl-2-undecyl- 1,3-dioxolan-4-yl) methoxy]- 1-propanesulfonate), Urea-Chaps (Urea-3-[(3-Cholamidopropyl) dimethylammonio]-1-propanesulfonate), SDS (Sodium dodecyl sulfate), SDC (Sodium deoxycholate) and SL (Sodium laurate). Two protein precipitation methods (acetone and ethanol) were compared using SDS and CHAPS-Urea samples as the basis for analysis after the acetone and ethanol precipitation (AP and EtOHP) procedures. Filter-aided sample preparation (FASP) was also carried out on the two samples mentioned above using a 30 kDa filter. The results showed that PPS Silent, ProteaseMAX and RapiGest provided the total highest percentage yielded. Interestingly, SL and SDC yielded higher identification rates of proteins and peptides than the other methods. It is important to mention here that SL and SDC can be useful to anyone working on shotgun proteomics of adipose tissue. This study is intended to be published, and is currently under revision by a publishing group.

Prognostic Impacts of Angiopoietins in NSCLC Tumor Cells and Stroma : VEGF-A Impact Is Strongly Associated with Ang-2 Andersen, Sigve; Dønnem, Tom; Al-Shibli, Khalid Ibrahim; Al-Saad, Samer; Stenvold, Helge; Busund, Lill-Tove; Bremnes, Roy M. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2011)Angiopoietins and their receptor Tie-2 are, in concert with VEGF-A, key mediators in angiogenesis. This study evaluates the prognostic impact of all known human angiopoietins (Ang-1, Ang-2 and Ang-4) and their receptor Tie-2, as well as their relation to the prognostic expression of VEGF-A. 335 unselected stage I-IIIA NSCLC-patients were included and tissue samples of respective tumor cells and ...
Humant papillomavirus : en litteraturstudie om HPV, dets relasjon til cancer og tiltak mot videre spredning av virus Gabrielsen, Endre (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2012-06-01)I 1983 oppdaget zur Hausen sammenhengen mellom Humant Papillomavirus (HPV) og livmorhalskreft. På denne tiden visste man ikke at det var HPV som var årsaken til at Helaceller kunne leve in vitro. Ny forskning relaterer HPV til en rekke andre cancertyper. En stor andel anal-, oropharyngeal-, penis-, vaginal-, og vulvacancer skyldes HPV. Det er også påvist HPV i tumorvev fra øsofagus, larynx, lunge, ...
Cardiovascular adaptation in pregnancy - Effects of angiotensin II, transverse aorta constriction and high-intensity interval training on pregnant rats Songstad, Nils Thomas (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2014-09-18)Objectives: To investigate how cardiac function, remodeling and gene expression are affected in pregnancy in response to cardiovascular stress, to detect possible adverse effects on the fetus, and to evaluate if coronary endothelial function is influenced by pregnancy and increased cardiac afterload. Methods: Pregnant and non-pregnant rats were subjected to chronic AngII-infusion, transverse aortic ...
