Direct proteome profiling and protein imaging of intact tissue by MALDI-MS.
Tissue Profiling typically involves many samples of several types, and the goal is often to discover patterns in the protein profiles of the samples that can classify the samples based on biological state. (e.g., tumor vs. normal) and that can predict biological outcomes (e.g., the prognosis of a patient).
Tissue Imagingis usually performed on a small number of samples where the goal is to obtain a relatively high resolution image showing the distribution of various proteins in the tissue section.
Proteome profiling of serum, plasma and other biofluids by MALDI-MS
generates spectral patterns in the protein profiles as a tool used to differentiate between disease states.
Multidimensional Analysis (LC-MS-MS) of Biofluids
comprehensive analysis of fluids providing inventory of protein identified in samples.
MS images of mouse kidneys infected with S. aureus. The signal at m/z 10,165, tentatively identified as calgranulin A, is present in the kidney abscesses, but is absent in healthy tissue. The signal at m/z 12,135 appears down-regulated in infected tissue and is absent in abscessed tissue.
