Metabonomics is well established as a means of disease and toxicity screening in experimental animals.
Metabonomics will find increased application in the study of healthy and diseased humans. However,one of the major obstacles in clinical investigations is the greater variability in a human population.
Here, we describe two investigations on healthy subjects designed to evaluate the variability in metabonomic data, in view of dietary influences and cultural trends.
Investigating the Effects of Fructose Consumption and Inadequate Copper Intake on Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver DiseasePoster
Metabolomics is a viable method for identifying compounds associated with NAFLD. In this investigation, high-quality data facilitate the identification of key metabolites differentiating normal versus diseased species.READ MORE
A Tissue-based Proteomic Study of VEGFR2 in Human Term PlacentasPoster
VEGFR2 is the main regulator of placental angiogenesis and at term is localized in endothelial cells (EC) of the villous vasculature. VEGFR2 immunoprecipitation (IP) of membrane proteins, extracted from the fetal compartment, isolated 30 proteins that were identified by proteomic analysis.READ MORE
RAMclust/RAMsearch: efficient post-XCMS feature clustering and annotation of MS-based metabolomics datasetsPoster
Chromatographically coupled mass spectrometry is a powerful tool for profiling, semi-quantitatively or quantitatively, a breadth of small molecules with sensitivity and selectivity.READ MORE
