    • To understand the biology and evolution of ruminants, the cattle genome was sequenced to about sevenfold coverage. The cattle genome contains a minimum of 22,000 genes, with a core set of 14,345 orthologs shared among seven mammalian species of which 1217 are absent or undetected in noneutherian (marsupial or monotreme) genomes. Cattle-specific evolutionary breakpoint regions in chromosomes have a higher density of segmental duplications, enrichment of repetitive elements, and species-specific variations in genes associated with lactation and immune responsiveness. Genes involved in metabolism are generally highly conserved, although five metabolic genes are deleted or extensively diverged from their human orthologs. The cattle genome sequence thus provides a resource for understanding mammalian evolution and accelerating livestock genetic improvement for milk and meat production.

  • Neuropeptidomics – Expanding Proteomics Downwards
  • 2007
  • Doktorsavhandling (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • Biological function is mainly carried out by a dynamic population of proteins which may be used as markers for disease diagnosis, prognosis, and as a guide for effective treatment. In analogy to genomics, the study of proteins is called proteomics and it is generally performed by two-dimensional gel electrophoresis and mass spectrometric methods. However, gel based proteomics is methodologically restricted from the low mass region which includes important endogenous peptides. Furthermore, the study of endogenous peptides, peptidomics, is compromised by protein fragments produced post mortem during conventional sample handling. In this thesis nanoflow liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry have been used together with improved methods for sample preparation to semi-quantitatively monitor peptides in brain tissue. The proteolysis of proteins and rise of fragments in the low mass region was studied in a time-course study up to ten minutes, where a potential marker for sample quality was found. When rapidly denatured brain tissue was analyzed, the methods enabled detection of hundreds of peptides and identifications of several endogenous peptides not previously described in the literature. The identification process of endogenous peptides has been improved by creating small targeted sequence collections from existing databases. In applications of the MPTP model for Parkinson’s disease the protein and peptide expressions were compared to controls. Several proteins were significantly changed belonging to groups of mitochondrial, cytoskeletal, and vesicle associated proteins. In the peptidomic study, the levels of the small protein PEP-19 was found to be significantly decreased in the striatum of MPTP administered animals. Using imaging mass spectrometry the spatial distribution of PEP-19 was found to be predominant in the striatum and the levels were concordantly decreased in the parkinsonian tissue as verified by immunoblotting.
