PROTEINS AT WORK

The fascinating world of proteomics

This video provides a glimpse at the fascinating world of proteomics research, the study of all proteins that form the basis for life. The video was produced for the lab of prof. dr. Albert Heck at Utrecht University and the Netherlands Proteomics Centre.

Proteomics is the large-scale study of proteins, which are vital parts of all living organisms. Studying proteins can help to better understand diseases and the effectiveness of drugs, but can teach us why some plants can adapt to harsh environments and how we can most effectively combat bacterial infections.

This video about proteomics research was made possible with input from members of the Heck lab and financial support by the Utrecht Institute for Pharmaceutical Sciences (UIPS).

Top-Down Mass Spectrometry Meeting

Top-down mass spectrometry (MS) has emerged as a powerful proteomic approach. Providing unique information on proteins at the molecular level, this technique allows the study of the combinatorial effects of multiple PTMs and/or mutations occurring on the same polypeptide chain (proteoforms) and their physiological function. Moreover, technical advances in Native top-down strategies allow the study of protein complexes (complexoforms). In parallel, top-down approaches performed at a large scale (top-down proteomics) are expected to become viable alternatives to those of bottom-up in terms of protein identification. However, in contrast to the latter approach, top-down is considerably more challenging because of the complexity of the data generated and various technical limitations and instrumentation requirements.

Participants will be informed about the current state of top-down MS, the types of instrumentation available, and the applications and potentiality of the technique. Leading experts working in top-down MS and top-down proteomics have been invited to explain the tools they use and their latest achievements. The overall objective of the meeting is to speed up the use of top-down MS in proteomic laboratories and to maximize the results by improving the experimental procedures and data analysis.

Job opening for a PhD student in proteomics at Erasmus MC

The Proteomics Center at Erasmus MC plans to appoint a PhD student

Description

You will be working on the characterization of the ubiquitin-proteasome system. The proteasome is part of a major mechanism by which cells regulate the cellular concentration of proteins and degrade unneeded and damaged proteins, which are typically tagged with ubiquitin. Abnormal ubiquitin-proteasome system functioning has been implicated in the pathogenesis of several human diseases, including cancers and neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease. By monitoring the cellular proteome after (partial) inactivation of the proteasome by either chemical inhibitors or targeted subunit knockdown, the effects of the impaired ubiquitin-proteasome system on the cell’s behavior are investigated.

Quantitative Proteomics and Network Biology by Prof. Ruedi Aebersold

Institute of Systems Biology, ETH Zürich, Switzerland

Conference taught by Prof. Ruedi Aeberson in Spanish National Centre for Biotechnology, Madrid (Spain) on 24th May 2013 with the name "Quantitative Proteomics and Network Biology".


Prof. Ruedi Aebersold is one of the pioneers in the field of proteomics. He is known for developing a series of methods that have found wide application in analytical protein chemistry and proteomics like a new class of reagents termed Isotope Coded Affinity Tag (ICAT) reagents used in quantitative mass spectrometry.

Prof. Dr. Aebersold and his team of researchers use the protein profiles determined by this method to differentiate cells in different states, such as noncancerous versus cancerous cells, and to systematically study how cells respond to external stimuli. These "snapshot" profiles indicate which cells contain abnormal levels of certain proteins. This is expected to lead to new diagnostic markers for disease and to a more complete understanding of the biochemical processes that control and constitute cell physiology.

Prof. Aebersold serves on the Scientific Advisory Committees of numerous academic and private sector research organizations and is a member of several editorial boards in the fields of protein science, genomics, and proteomics.

Prof. Aebersold is a native of Switzerland and obtained his Ph.D. in Cellular Biology at the Biocenter of the University of Basel in 1983. Since that time, he is a faculty member of the Universities of Washington and British Columbia, until 2000, when he co-founded the Institute for Systems Biology in Seattle. In 2004, he accepted a position as full professor at the Institute of Biotechnology at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich, where in January 2005, his research group became the first integral part of the newly founded Institute of Molecular Systems Biology.

Postgraduate Studentships at the University of the Highlands and Islands

As part of a larger programme, funded by the European Social Fund, two PhD studentships are being offered in the Lipidomics Research Facility, Department of Diabetes and Cardiovascular Science, University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI), Inverness, Scotland.

Investigation of Lipid Metabolism in a Cellular Model of Type 2 Diabetes
Prof. Phillip Whitfield (UHI), Dr. Mary Doherty (UHI) with Dr. Silvia Mora (University of Liverpool)

Type 2 diabetes manifests when the body fails to respond to the hormone, insulin (insulin resistance) and is often associated with obesity. One of the proteins that mediates insulin action in muscle and fat cells is casitas b-lyphoma (cbl). The aim of this project is to use mass spectrometry-based lipidomic approaches to investigate the down-stream effects of cbl on cellular lipid metabolism and the role that
this signalling pathway plays in the development of type 2 diabetes.

For further details contact: phil.whitfield@uhi.ac.uk

Exploring The Mechanisms of Heart Disease Through Proteome Dynamics

Plant Proteomics Content- INPPO 2011

Dear ProteoRed member, We can envision the global impact of plant proteomics. That is, the importance of proteomics in the biological context, plant diversity, and the essential contribution of that biodiversity to the socio-economic foundation of humankind, is beyond any doubt. Therefore, it is crucial that we invest in PROTEOMICS.

In general, the mood among plant proteome researchers is to fully exploit the potential of proteomics, a highly challenging task and global in scale. To do so, a suitable globally recognized platform is the need of our age. To address this situation, an international group of reputated researchers in the field established INPPO. INPPO is a global plant proteomics organization to properly organize, preserve and disseminate collected information on plant proteomics. Obviously such a goal could not be achieved without a strong support from the proteomics community, including those teams who already made strong contributions to their respective fields and publically made available several important plant proteomics databases.
So, on behalf of the initiators and founding members, I am honored to invite you to join your colleagues from around the world in INPPO.
Please also do have a look at the atached INPPO Call Paper / Viewpoint, co-authored by 12 founding members around the globe (Ganesh Kumar Agrawal et al) which is appearing in PROTEOMICS journal May,2011 special issue on ‘Plant Proteomics’ (at WILEY: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/pmic.201000608/abstract), for further details on the organization.

Please visit the website of International Plant Proteomics Organization (www.inppo.com), and fill the ‘JOIN US NOW’ form; OR, in case of clarification/comment, you can mail to Dr. RANDEEP RAKWAL (email: plantproteomics@gmail.com)

Post-doc position in a new sub-group in the Plant Biochemistry lab at the ETH Zurich

The young group, led by Oliver Kötting, is affiliated to the Plant Biochemistry group of Prof. Zeeman at the ETH in the center of Zurich

A new sub-group in the Plant Biochemistry lab at the ETH Zurich has an opening for a Post-doc position

Duration: 2 years. Preferred start: 01 July 2011 or earlier.

The young group, led by Oliver Kötting, is affiliated to the Plant Biochemistry group of Prof. Zeeman at the ETH in the center of Zurich. Our major interests are starch and glycogen metabolism in plants and mammals. Recently, we characterized a novel phosphatase crucial for starch metabolism in Arabidopsis. Interestingly, deficiency of a closely related mammalian phosphatase, laforin, leads to the deposition of insoluble and aberrantly structured glycogen. These so-called Lafora bodies (LBs) are generally assumed to trigger the symptoms of a fatal epilepsy in mammals, Lafora disease.

Your tasks: Aim of this project is the identification of novel factors involved in the formation on LBs in laforin knock-out mice. The successful candidate will focus on two objectives: the characterization of the LB proteome and the elucidation of LB structure. Novel factors identified by proteomics will further be analyzed by cloning and heterologous expression in E. coli and transgenic plants, and/or by RNAi in mammalian cell culture. The project will involve short visits to our collaborators in the USA.

Your qualifications: We are looking for a very motivated candidate with a high level of self-organization and the ability to work both independently and as part of a team. The ideal candidate has a PhD in the Life Sciences, skills in proteomics and/or HPLC techniques, and a solid repertoire of biochemical and molecular biology techniques. Experience in carbohydrate metabolism would be of advantage.

We offer an excellent analytical infrastructure both in-house and at the nearby Functional Genomics Centre Zurich – a joint state-of-the-art research and training facility of the ETH and the University of Zurich. Salary will be in accordance with the ETH guidelines.

To apply please send – preferably by email – a cover letter describing your research interests and experience, your full CV, and the contact information of three references to Oliver Kötting (koetting@ethz.ch).

For additional information please feel free to contact Oliver Kötting by phone or email.

Review of the applications will start immediately and will be accepted until the position is filled.

PROTEOMICS UNIT: Get your large-scale proteomics projects funded by the EU via 'PRIME-XS'

The Proteomics Unit at CRG/UPF will host several Networking Activity events during the 4-years period, which will provide researchers in Spain first row asses to high quality proteomics presentations.

In early 2010 the Proteomics Unit at CRG/UPF joined a consortium of 12 European proteomics laboratories (Figure 1) to apply for a FP7 grant (7th framework program of the European Union). The proposal was named PRIME‐XS (Proteomics Research Infrastructure Maximizing knowledge EXchange and acceSs) and aims at making high quality mass spectrometry based proteomics accessible to researchers in Europe. In late 2010 the PRIME-XS proposal was awarded funding for 4-years, with an expected project start of April 2011. PRIME-XS is composed of three parts: Joint Research Activities, Networking Activities and Transnational Access to state-of-art proteomics tools and the Proteomics Unit at CRG/UPF is participating in all three categories.

The Proteomics Unit at CRG/UPF will host several Networking Activity events during the 4-years period, which will provide researchers in Spain first row asses to high quality proteomics presentations. A very interesting part of PRIME-XS is most likely the Transnational Access (TA). Here, researchers can apply to PRIME-XS to have a proteomics experiment analyzed in one of the six TA participating laboratories (see Figure 1). In the TA program, 50+ mass spectrometers are available and of those, more than 15 are high resolution instruments (Orbitraps and FT-ICR mass spectrometers). The six access laboratories will take projects with different requirements ranging from PTM analysis to native MS).

A restrictions for being granted Transnational Access is that the analysis must take place in a country different from where the applicant is stationed, e.g. the Proteomics Unit at CRG/UPF will not analyze PRIME-XS projects from Spain. Projects will be evaluated by an expert review board which will decide if Transnational Access can be awarded. At this point applications are not yet accepted at the PRIME-XS website (http://www.primexs.eu/). However, you are encouraged to visit the website where relevant information will be posted. Please feel free to distribute this information in your institute.

4th Mass Spectrometry in Biotechnology and Medicine (MSBM) Summer School in Dubrovnik, Croatia 4-10 July 2010

Dear Colleagues,

We will host the 4th Mass Spectrometry in Biotechnology and Medicine (MSBM) Summer School in Dubrovnik, Croatia 4-10 July 2010. MSBM is intended to educate students, post-doctoral fellows and anyone interested in learning about applications and fundamentals of mass spectrometry in biotechnology and medicine.

Details of the 4th Summer School will soon appear at the website www.msbm.org, but we are happy to announce that Alan Marshall will provide a lecture on FT-ICR-MS fundamentals. Beyond this we
anticipate the program will be quite similar to past MSBM programs covering MS fundamentals and applications in medicine related to proteins, lipids, and carbohydrates, both from a structural perspective and various –omics approaches to discovery science.

Please feel free to contact us directly at msbm.dubrovnik@gmail.com which will reach the entire organizing committee. We look forward to hearing from you.

All the Best,

Postdoctoral position available

Three years Postdoctoral position available at the “Agricultural and Plant Biochemistry and Proteomics Research Group”, Dpt. of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Cordoba, Spain (Jesús V. Jorrín).

Which is required
Experience in proteomic techniques, 2-DE, LC, MS, statistics, bioinformatics

Project in which the candidate will be involved
Creation of a mapped database of Botrytis cinerea T-DNA transformants allowing pathogenic development and plant defence studies.

This project will be financed by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation, (Programa Internacionalizacion de I + D, Subprograma Euroinvestigación, Modalidad Cooperación Transnacional Francia-Alemania-España).

Starting

May-July 2009

Project aims
The necrotrophic fungus Botrytis cinerea causes serious pre-and post-harvest diseases on more than two hundred plant species, including agriculturally important crops such as fruits (grapes, strawberries, tomatoes) and flowers, and is responsible for great economic losses during both cultivation and storage

The goal of the project is to develop a collection of tagged mutants of Botrytis cinerea, and to illustrate the versatile exploitation of this library with the characterization of non-pathogenic mutant strains, affected in their necrotrophic development and/or conidiation capacity.

The B. cinerea mutant strain collection would be generated using two random genomic strategies, the established Agrobacterium-mediated T-DNA integration and the transposon-based insertional mutagenesis already exploited for other pathogenic fungi.

The B. cinerea mutant library would be first exploited with the characterization of mutants selected for their inability to perform their necrotrophic development and reach the sporulation stage in planta. To this end, the mutant phenotypes would be selected in vitro using biochemical and physiological screens, and then further analyzed through- proteomic approaches.

El proyecto desarrollará un enfoque “top-down” aplicado a la venómica. La caracterización proteómica exhaustiva y detallada de las toxinas de los venenos de serpientes de importancia médica contribuirá a un entendimiento más profundo de la biología y ecología de las serpientes, y también a definir el conjunto mínimo de epítopos para generar antisueros más específicos y efectivos que los que actualmente se producen mediante inmunización con veneno completo. Investigaremos el origen evolutivo, el rol fisiológico y los mecanismos de la diversificación estructural y funcional de las disintegrinas, un grupo de antagonistas de receptores de adhesión celular de la familia de las integrinas. Otro objetivo de este proyecto es profundizar en el mecanismo de acción de la disintegrina jerdostatina que expresa el motivo RTS y antagoniza especificamente la función de la integrina α1β1, así como explorar el uso de esta disintegrina recombinante para la visualización in vivo de angiogénesis tumoral. En paralelo, proponemos evaluar la eficiencia de formas Recombinantes de la disintegrina jerdostatina, silvestre y mutantes de ganancia de función, para reducir in vivo el crecimiento tumoral.

Dear Colleagues,
You are cordially invited to participate in the HUPO-PSI Spring Meeting 2008 to be held in Toledo, Spain, from April 23rd to 25th, 2008.
Since its conception in April 2002, this meeting has been celebrated annually in different cities and the aim of this workshop is to bring together scientists, technologist, instrument vendors, software providers and editors interested in the standardization of proteomics data. The interdisciplinary character of the workshop provides the opportunity for professionals to present, discuss, learn and establish guidelines about different aspects of proteomics data standardization. After 5 years, PSI has delivered a number of MIAPE guidelines and standard formats already used in production mode (PSI-MI, mzData), as well as more than 20 publications.
As usual now, the workshop agenda includes few lectures and leaves a large room for selected parallel discussions. A major effort will be made to ensure and to facilitate the participation of both private and public sector delegates. The meeting will feature a short plenary session that includes a plenary lecture and that finalizes the detailed distribution of the items to be discussed in parallel sessions. The list of topics will include MIAPE modules to draft or finalize, standard formats to further develop or to bring to a mature form (PSI-MI, mzML, AnalysisXML, gelML, etc), and possibly other Proteomics Standards related issues currently under discussion. The details will be published on the PSI website (http://psidev.info). You can expect a highly skilled participative audience that will listen to your collaborative expert review.
The venue this time will be Toledo, a UNESCO World Heritage site declared for its extensive cultural and monumental heritage and place of coexistence of Christian, Jewish and Moorish cultures. It is the home of people from all over the world, which offers a variety of leisure options and many restaurants to enjoy our well known cuisine.
I sincerely hope that you will join us in making the HUPO-PSI Spring Meeting 2008 a great success. Together with my colleagues of the PSI organising committee and ProteoRed, I look forward to welcoming you to the historical City of Toledo and to the HUPO-PSI Spring Meeting 2008.

Position in proteomics and mass spectrometry at the EMBL in Heidelberg

Announcement of vacant group leader position in proteomics and mass spectrometry at the EMBL in Heidelberg

EMBL plans to expand its activities in proteomics and biological mass spectrometry by recruiting an outstanding candidate in this area. EMBL has a strong tradition in proteomics and many research groups that apply mass spectrometry to cutting edge biological questions, including metabolite-protein interactions across the proteome (Anne-Claude Gavin), bacterial proteomics (EMBL Hamburg and Structural and Computational Biology Units) and eukaryotic organelle proteomics (Lars Steinmetz). We therefore particularly encourage candidates that develop new technologies in mass spectrometry with applications in biology, for example posttranslational protein modifications, quantitative analysis of macromolecular complexes, quantitative or dynamic proteomics. We also welcome candidates with demonstrated excellence in other areas of biological proteomics.

An initial contract of 5 years will be offered to the successful candidate. This can be renewed, depending on circumstances at the time of review.

Nuevas iniciativas facilitarán a la comunidad científica la comparación de datos

Pronto los científicos de todo el mundo podrán intercambiar y comparar con más facilidad datos moleculares detallados, gracias a iniciativas de dos grupos internacionales de científicos.

Estos grupos presentan en la revista Nature Biotechnology directrices relativas a la información que todo investigador debería proporcionar al escribir informes sobre interacciones moleculares («MIMIx», la información mínima necesaria para dar cuenta de experimentos sobre interacciones moleculares) y sobre proteómica («MIAPE», la información mínima sobre un experimento de proteómica).

En estos campos se están llevando a cabo cantidades ingentes de investigaciones. Sin embargo, es frecuente que los datos se presenten en formatos distintos, o incluso simplemente en texto libre. Además, muchos informes carecen de información que resulta necesaria para que otras personas comprendan plenamente el experimento en cuestión; en muchos casos no se identifican con claridad las moléculas.

«La ausencia de información fundamental puede llevar a interpretaciones erróneas del trabajo y a que los responsables de bases de datos intenten deducir la información faltante, proceso lento y propenso a errores», señala el equipo de MIMIx.

Las nuevas directrices se elaboraron consultando a la comunidad científica y siguiendo dos criterios básicos. Por una parte, se pretende que los científicos ofrezcan información suficiente para que otros científicos puedan entender e interpretar los datos plenamente. Por otra parte, el procedimiento no debía resultar tan oneroso que la comunidad científica acabase evitándolo.

«La asimilación, por parte de toda la comunidad científica, de unos estándares de información mínimos concertados, facilitará la identificación y el uso de la información que resulta más relevante para nuestro ámbito de trabajo concreto, cosa que nos beneficia a todos», indicó uno de los autores de ambos trabajos, Henning Hermjakob, del Instituto Europeo de Bioinformática del Laboratorio Europeo de Biología Molecular. «Este es el paso siguiente para ofrecer repositorios de datos de acceso libre y de la mayor calidad posible.»

Las directrices de MIAPE constan de una serie de módulos relacionados con tecnologías o grupos de tecnologías en concreto. MIMIx es el primer módulo de MIAPE que se finaliza y publica; ya se han presentado otros para su publicación.

Entre otras cosas, las directrices de MIMIx sobre interacciones moleculares exigen que se proporcione información sobre los métodos experimentales, los nombres de todas las moléculas implicadas en la interacción, la especie de origen de cada molécula y la función biológica de cada molécula de la interacción.

En última instancia, la aplicación de unos estándares mínimos de información beneficiará a una serie de colectivos, recalcan los investigadores. «El cumplimiento de estas directrices de información repercutirá en una mayor claridad y una mayor utilidad de las publicaciones para la comunidad científica; además, fomentará la captación rápida y sistemática de los datos sobre interacciones moleculares en las bases de datos públicas, lo cual mejorará el acceso a datos útiles sobre interacciones», explica el equipo de MIMIx.

Según el equipo de MIAPE, estos estándares facilitarán el intercambio de datos con colaboradores, evitarán el riesgo de perder información como consecuencia de los cambios de personal y contribuirá a la evaluación de resultados que se hayan generado tiempo atrás.

«En esta época de experimentos a escala del genoma y del proteoma, resulta evidente la necesidad de estandarizar el contenido de los informes sobre experimentos biológicos, con vistas a sacar el máximo partido a nuestra labor», concluye el equipo de MIAPE. «Esperamos que este documento y los módulos anexos comiencen a cubrir esta necesidad de los investigadores de la proteómica y, en general, de toda la comunidad que trabaja en la proteómica, incrementando la utilidad de cada trabajo científico y de los diversos corpus a los que contribuyen tantos científicos.»

Functional Genomics Experiment Model Specification released

The FuGE document has now completed its progress through the Proteome Standards Initiative document process, and is now a PSI Recommendation

As a result, FuGE can now be seen as a formally accepted standard, and proposals that have been making use of FuGE now have an accepted and stable foundation on which to build.

The authors, and a range of other working group members and users, have put substantial effort into to this activity over several years, in the hope of increasing the consistency and quality of functional genomics standards for multiple omes. Several standards activities in the PSI, MSI and MGED are now building on FuGE, so it seems likely to be an important contribution to biological data standardisation.

ABRF sPRG2007 study

ProteoRed members participation in the ABRF sPRG2007 study

Nine ProteoRed members took part in the ABRF sPRG2007 study focused on the ability of core facilities to determine the identities and phosphorylation sites of multiple proteins present in a single sample. Laboratories participating in the study received a sample containing a mixture of at least seven proteins containing one or more phosphorylated residues. Results were anonimously submitted and evaluated by the proteomic standards research group (sPRG) of the Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities (ABRF). Conclusions were presented orally and as a poster at the ABRF 2007 meeting and will be published in the Journal of Biomolecular Techniques. The poster shows the results obtained in Protein Identification (Table I) by ProteoRed members (red asterisks) and the rest of the participants while Table II resume the results obtained in the determination of Phosphorylation residues. As clearly seen in the poster, the results clearly determined that ProteRed members reached international standards in Protein Identification and determination of Phosphorylation residues.
