  1. 1. Imaging of lipids and proteins in Alzheimer's disease using Time-of-Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry

    Author : Louise M Carlred; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; QCM-D; fluorescence microscopy; ToF-SIMS; Amyloid-β; immunohistochemistry; Sulfatides; antibodies; liposomes; Alzheimer’s disease; Cholesterol;

    Abstract : Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disease characterized by the formation of senile plaques. These plaques, which consist of aggregations of a peptide called amyloid-β, are deposited in-between the nerve cells in the brain, where they disrupt the signaling processes. READ MORE

    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

  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. Analysis of phospholipids in cellular membranes with LC and imaging mass spectrometry

    Author : Ingela Lanekoff; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Mass spectrometry; TOF-SIMS; Phospholipid; Cells; Anammox;

    Abstract : Imaging mass spectrometry enables the creation of molecule specific images from the surface of a solid sample in vacuum. To solve the issue of bringing single cells into vacuum without altering their native distribution of molecules, a freeze fracture device that fits the time of flight secondary ion mass spectrometry (TOF-SIMS) IV instrument has been developed.

  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
