The aim of the study was to investigate the impact of ischemia/reperfusion injury on the proteome of Kupffer cells. Lean Zucker rats (n = 6 each group) were randomized to 75 min of warm ischemia or sham operation. After reperfusion for 8 h, Kupffer cells were isolated by enzymatic perfusion and density gradient centrifugation. Proteins were tryptically digested into peptides and differentially labeled with iTRAQ (isobaric tags for relative and absolute quantitation) reagent. After fractionation by cation exchange chromatography, peptides were identified by mass spectrometry (ESI-LC-MS/MS). Spectra were interrogated against the Swiss-Prot database and quantified using ProteinProspector. The results for heat shock protein 70 and myeloperoxidase were validated by ELISA. Quantitative information for more than 1559 proteins was obtained. In the ischemia group proteins involved in inflammation were significantly up-regulated. The ratio for calgranulin B in the ischemia/sham group was 1.81 +/- 0.97 (p < 0.0001), for complement C3 the ratio was 1.81 +/- 0.49 (p < 0.0001), and for myeloperoxidase the ratio was 1.30 +/- 0.32. Myeloperoxidase was only recently documented in Kupffer cells. The antioxidative proteins Cu,Zn-superoxide dismutase (1.34 +/- 0.19; p < 0.001) and catalase (1.23 +/- 0.43; p < 0.001) were also elevated. In conclusion, ischemia/reperfusion injury induces alterations in the Kupffer cell proteome. Isotope ratio mass spectrometry is a powerful tool to investigate these reactions. The ability to simultaneously monitor several pathways involved in reperfusion stress may result in important mechanistic insight and possibly new treatment options.

    • "These researches have been performed directly on liver tissues or, in other cases, on hepatocyte, hepatic stellate, Chang and Kupffer cells. Moreover, a large number of differential studies have been undertaken to describe the quantitative proteomic variations in hepatic cells during embryo organ development [108] [109] or senescence [110], after organ transplantation/resection [111] [112], following treatment with various toxic agents [113] [114], or different liver diseases. In particular, a great effort has been spent in the proteomic analysis of in vitro models or liver tissue of HCV [115] [116] and HBV infection [117] [118], fibrosis and cirrhosis [118] [119], HCC [120] [121] [122] [123], and NAFLD [124] [125].

    ABSTRACT: The importance of a correct balance between oxidative and reductive events has been shown to have a paramount effect of cell function since a quite long time. However, in spite of this body of rapidly grooving evidence, the implication of the alteration of the redox state in human disease has been so far much less appreciated. Liver diseases make no exception. Although not fully comprehensive, this article reports was discussed during an EASL Basic School held in 2012 in Trieste, Italy, where the effect of the alteration of the redox state has been addressed in different experimental and human models. This translational approach resulted in further stressing the concept that this topic should be expanded in the future not only to better understand how oxidative stress may be linked to a liver damage and also, perhaps more important, how this may be the target for a better, more focused treatments. In parallel, understanding how alteration of the redox balance may be associated to liver damage may help in defining sensitive and ideally early biomarkers of the disorder.

    ABSTRACT: The collection of global metabolic data and their interpretation (both spectral and biochemical) using modern spectroscopic techniques and appropriate statistical approaches, are known as 'metabolic profiling', 'metabonomics' or 'metabolomics'. This review addresses 1H-nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR)-based metabolomic principles and their application in biomedical science, with special emphasis on their potential in translational research in transplantation, oncology, and drug toxicity or discovery. Various steps in metabolomics analysis are described in order to illustrate the types of biological samples, their respective handling and preparation for 1H-NMR analysis; provide a rationale for using pattern-recognition techniques (spectral database concept) versus quantitative 1H-NMR-based metabolomics (metabolite database concept); and identify necessary technological and logistical future developments that will allow 1H-NMR-based metabolomics to become an established tool in biomedical research and patient care.

    ABSTRACT: We report here a method for proteomics pattern discovery by utilizing a self-organizing map approach to analyze data obtained from a novel multiplex iTRAQ proteomics method. Through the application of this technique, we were able to delineate the early molecular events preceding dorsal root ganglia neurite outgrowth induced by either nerve growth factor (NGF) or an immunophilin ligand, JNJ460. Following pattern analysis we discovered that each neurotrophic agent promoted mostly distinct increases in protein expression with few overlapping patterns. In the NGF-treated group, proteins possessing "biosynthesis function" (p < 0.002) and "ribosome localization" (p < 0.0003) were increased, while proteins promoting "organogenesis" (p < 0.004) and related "signal transduction" (p < 0.008) functions were notably increased in the JNJ460-treated group. This study suggests that the properties of neurite outgrowth triggered by NGF and JNJ460 can be distinguished at the proteome level. Multiplexed proteomics analysis, along with pattern discovery bioinformatics tools, has the capability to differentiate subtle neuroproteomics patterns.
