UBE2O remodels the proteome during terminal erythroid
" Science 357.6350
During reticulocyte maturation, the proteome is remodeled
through the programmed elimination of most generic constituents of the cell, in
parallel with abundant synthesis of hemoglobin. The study used multiplexed
quantitative proteomics to identify candidate substrates of UBE2O, an E2
(ubiquitin-conjugating) enzyme, in an unbiased and global manner. Because
of the overly abundant presence of Hemoglobin, selective depletion of
Hemoglobin was necessary. T
he article states “Reticulocytes were lysed
by vortexing for 5 minutes at room temperature… An additional 10 bed vol of
Hemoglobind™ suspension was added to the samples, which were then vortexed for
another 10 min at room temperature followed by 4 min of centrifugation at 10000
g. The supernatants, which contain hemoglobin-depleted sample,
were … processed for TMT quantification.

Molecular Therapy 25.1 (2017):
This study considers that therapeutic strategies
targeting cancer-derived extracellular vesicles (EVs) hold great promise
because of the possibility they reposition microenvironments to accommodate
metastasis. The researchers report on a novel strategy of therapeutic antibody
treatment to target cancer-derived EVs and inhibit the metastasis of breast
cancer in a mouse model. The article states “Hemoglobin was accumulated with
HemogloBind™ beads (Biotech support group, Monmouth Junction NJ, USA) followed
by 0.22 μm filtration. Then, the EVs in the sera were concentrated by

In this study, Parkinson’s disease
progression is investigated through the accumulation and aggregation of the
lipid-binding SNARE complex component alpha-synuclein (SNCA) which underlies
vulnerability and defines its stages. The authors studied blood samples from a
new large pedigree with
SNCA gene duplication (PARK4 mutation), to
identify effects of SNCA gain-of-function as potential disease biomarkers. The
article states “For protein extraction from the EDTA tubes, 300 μl blood were

Diabetic kidney disease, a common complication of both type 1 and type 2
diabetes, is associated with significant morbidity and mortality, and
represents the most common cause of chronic kidney disease. The study
hypothesized that protective pentose phosphate pathway action in diabetes might

cofactor thiamine diphosphate (TDP). To evaluate the levels of thiamine

Acetylcholine is an essential neurotransmitter, and inhibitors of
cholinesterases(ChEs) are potent toxins. A primary component of
anti-organophosphorus therapy is an oxime reactivator to rescue inhibited
acetylcholinesterases. For this, clinical signs of toxicity can be measured
from blood cholinesterase [Acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and
butyrylcholinesterase (BChE)] activity utilizing a modified Ellman's method.
