Coordinating growth with heart health ensures that the heart can keep up with the demands placed on it by the body. A recent study (1) identified a molecule called growth differentiation factor 15 [GDF15, also known as macrophage inhibitory cytokine 1 (MIC1)] that was released from the heart that signals to the liver to inhibit … Read moreGDF15: Heart Hormone, Appetite Suppressant, Marker of Neurodegenerative Disease

  Although genomic (DNA) and transcriptomic (messenger RNA) data are easier to collect and analyze, these are only two of the relevant types of “omic” data that are important for understanding disease and the response to treatments. Proteomic, metabolomic, and lipidomic data are also contain information that can be used diagnostically, prognostically, in developing treatment … Read moreThe Power of Proteomics in Medicine

Although mass spectrometry-based proteomic analysis is particularly useful for performing global proteomic analysis, this technique can also be used in a more targeted manner. For example, mass spectrometry-based proteomic analysis can be combined with immunoprecipitation to reveal the proteins that interact with the immunoprecipitated protein. Quick and colleagues (1) used coimmunoprecipitation followed by mass spectrometric … Read moreProteomic Analysis Leads to Insights into Heart Failure
