Sample text

A precise diagnosis of cancer using proteomics could be envisioned, based on highly discriminating patterns of proteins in easily accessible patient samples. Proteomics information also promises to provide sophisticated mathematical models of the molecular events underlying a process as complex as neoplastic transformation, which will capture the dynamics of the disease with unprecedented power. MODELING CANCER IN VIVO Once the mechanistic underpinnings of a particular cancer have been described, creating an animal model to test that mechanism becomes critical to understanding the pathophysiology and to design therapeutic strategies for treatment.

A, Reference RNA and tumor RNA are labeled by reverse transcription with different fluorescent dyes (green for the reference cells and red for the tumor cells) and are hybridized to a cDNA microarray containing robotically printed cDNA clones.

YPD Replicate velvet D X-Gal detected, typically by a color reaction that reflects the transactivation of the reporter gene and, by proxy, the interaction of the two test proteins. The method can also be used for large-scale protein interactions, RNA-protein interactions, and protein-ligand binding. As a complementary proteomics tool, mass spectrometry is an accurate mass measurement of charged peptides that are isolated by two-dimensional gel electrophoresis, producing a mass-to-charge ratio of charged samples under vacuum that can be used to determine the sequence identity of peptides.
