Iodoacetamide may be used as an alkylating reagent for cysteine residues in peptide sequencing and peptide/protein analytical analysis. It may be used in 2-D protein electrophoresis to reduce streaking and improve resolution by eliminating artifacts that could result from disulfide formation during electrophoresis. By virtue of its reaction with cysteine, iodoacetamide is an irreversible inhibitor of enzymes with cysteine at the active site. It reacts much more slowly with histidine residues, but that activity is responsible for inhibition of ribonuclease. Iodoacetamide may be used in disulfide stress research.

Glucose inhibition of gluconeogenic growth suppressor 2 protein (Gis2p) and zinc-finger protein 9 (ZNF9) are conserved yeast and human zinc-finger proteins. The function of yeast Gis2p is unknown, but human ZNF9 has been reported to bind nucleic acids, and mutations

Cysteines (Cys) made acidic by the protein environment are generally sensitive to pro-oxidant molecules. Glutathionylation is a post-translational modification that can occur by spontaneous reaction of reduced glutathione (GSH) with oxidized Cys as sulfenic acids (-SOH). The reverse reaction (deglutathionylation)

Large oncosomes (LO) are atypically large (1-10 µm diameter) cancer-derived extracellular vesicles (EVs), originating from the shedding of membrane blebs and associated with advanced disease. We report that 25% of the proteins, identified by a quantitative proteomics analysis, are differentially

Smoking is a well-established risk factor for rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and it has been proposed that smoking-induced citrullination renders autoantigens immunogenic. To investigate this mechanism, we examined human lung tissue from 40 subjects with defined smoking status, with or without
