  1. 1. Multimodal Chemical Imaging of Amyloid Plaque Pathology in Alzheimer’s Disease

    Author : Wojciech Michno; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Alzheimer’s disease; beta-amyloid; electron microscopy; imaging mass spectrometry; lipids; luminescent conjugated oligothiophenes; matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization mass spectrometry MALDI-MS ; molecular imaging; nanoscale secondary ion mass spectrometry NanoSIMS ; neurodegeneration; peptides;

    Abstract : Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia. AD has been linked to the aggregation of amyloid beta (Aβ) peptides into extracellular deposits, Aβ plaques. These are also found in cognitively unimpaired amyloid-positive (CU-AP) individuals, but these Aβ plaques are primarily diffuse in structure. READ MORE

  2. 2. Label free analysis and spatial distribution of molecular lipids in brain tissue and cells using mass spectrometry imaging

    Author : Amir Saeid Mohammadi; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mass Spectrometry Imaging; Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry Imaging; Matrix Assisted Laser desorption Ionization; Lipids; Brain tissue;

    Abstract : Lipids are important inherent components in brain and cell membranes, which play significant biological roles in cell function. Identification and localization of specific biomolecules such as peptides and lipids within cellular membranes is currently a major challenge in metabolomics and biological studies. READ MORE

  3. 3. Mass spectrometry of biopolymers based on ion-induced desorption

    Author : Roman Alexandrovich Zubarev; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Radiation sciences; Strålningsvetenskap; Radiation biology; Strålningsbiologi; Ion Physics; jonfysik;

    Abstract : Various aspects of biopolymer molecular characterization by their molecular masses havebeen studied, with emphasis on ion-induced desorption and time-of-flight mass Spectrometry(TOF MS). Limitations of the average-isotopic mass concept, as well as the utility ofaccurate monoisotopic mass measurements for deriving amino-acid and elementalcompositions, are discussed. READ MORE

  4. 4. Molecular and epidemiological studies on eyes with pseudoexfoliation syndrome

    Author : Amelie Botling Taube; Jonas Bergquist; Albert Alm; Eva Larsson; Hannu Uusitalo; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pseduoexfoliation syndrome; PEX; aqueous humor; cataract; cataract surgery; lens capsule; proteomics; mass spectrometry; MS; MALDI TOF MS MS; quantitative proteomics; iTRAQ; dimethyl labeling; imaging mass spectrometry; IMS; time of flight secondary ion mass spectrometry; TOF-SIMS; crystallin; epidemiology; risk factor; Ophtalmology; Oftalmiatrik;

    Abstract : Pseudoexfoliation (PEX) syndrome is an age-related condition characterized by the production and accumulation of extracellular fibrillary material in the anterior segment of the eye. PEX predisposes for several pathological conditions, such as glaucoma and complications during and after cataract surgery. READ MORE

  5. 5. Imaging mass spectrometry for in situ lipidomics: from cell structures to cardiac tissue

    Author : Sanna Sämfors; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Myocardial infarction; PC12 cells; Cell membrane; Mass spectrometry imaging; Sample preparation; Lipidomics; ToF-SIMS; Gas cluster ion beam;

    Abstract : Imaging of cells and tissues is important for studying different processes within biological systems due to the spatial information provided for different molecular species during imaging. One powerful imaging technique is mass spectrometry imaging (MSI). READ MORE
