Resolution of Biological Lipid Extracts
Using Differential Mobility Separation Mass Spectrometry

by

Paul RS Baker, PhD
Sr. Applications Specialist
Global Lead Scientist in Lipidomics
AB SCIEX

March 26, 2014 (Wed)
11:00 – 12:00
Seminar Room 7, LG1/F, Laboratory Block
Faculty of Medicine Building, 21 Sassoon Road
Pokfulam, Hong Kong

Advances in this mass spectrometry have enabled in-depth lipidomic analysis with unparalleled quantitative sensitivity. However, unambiguous identification and quantitation of lipid molecular species in total lipid extracts is difficult due to extensive isobaric interference. There are greater than 100,000 lipid molecular species present in a typical biological lipid extract that occupy a narrow mass range (~400-1100 amu), making isobaric overlap a significant problem. Currently, this problem is addressed by time-consuming, complex chromatography, including fractionation, 2-D LC strategies and chiral chromatographic columns. An alternative to chromatography has become available with the advent of SelexIONTM technology, which separates molecules based on their differential ion mobility in an oscillating electrical field prior to analysis by mass spectrometry. This technique resolves molecules by chemical effects and offers a method to analyze lipids in a unique and comprehensive way.

From Cell Death to Sudden Death:
Cardiotoxicity Revisited

Abstract:

Molecules that maintain normal cardiac function through p53-dependent and -independent pathways are potential targets of chemotherapy-induced cardiotoxicity. Here, we identify iASPP, an inhibitor of p53, as one such candidate. iASPP deficiency-causing spontaneous mutations are associated with cardiocutaneous disorders in CWH calves and Wa3 mice. In humans, cardiocutaneous disorder often associates with desmosomal dysfunction. We show here that iASPP deficiency specifically induces apoptosis and right ventricular dilation in E16.5 mouse embryos. iASPPΔ8/Δ8 mice die of sudden death, displaying features of Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy (ARVC). iASPP deficiency causing excessive cardiomyocyte loss was largely rescued in iASPPΔ8/Δ8;p53-/- hearts. Moreover, iASPP anchors desmoplakin and desmin at the intercalated discs and binds desmoplakin, forming a trimeric complex with desmin or keratin to maintain the integrity of desmomsomes and intermediate filament networks in cardiomyocytes and keratinocytes, respectively. iASPP, therefore, prevents cardiocutaneous disorder through its ability to inhibit p53-induced apoptosis and maintain desmosome function.

Research Statement

High-throughput technologies will transform the way we diagnose and treat malignancies.

Leukemias and lymphomas are malignancies that arise from immune cells. The majority of these malignancies arise from B cells, a type of immune cell. Leukemias and lymphomas derived from B cells affect over 100,000 Americans every year. The majority of those patients will succumb to their disease. Dr. Dave's research is focused on the application of high-throughput technologies including microarrays and massively parallel sequencing to improve the diagnosis and treatment of leukemias and lymphomas.

Active efforts in the laboratory and clinic include:

1. Integrating genomic technologies with clinical trials to define molecular subgroups of patients who are most likely to respond to therapy.
2. Exploring the role of microRNA in the differentiation of immune cells and their role in leukemias and lymphomas.
3.Application of high throughput sequencing to identify means of gene regulation in normal and malignant cells.
4.Exploiting high throughput genomic and proteomic technologies to develop new prognostic and diagnostic markers in leukemias and lymphomas.

Introduction

Cancer is the major cause of death in Hong Kong as in most parts of the world. Traditional studies on cancer emphasize on the roles of genetic and epigenetic changes in cancer cells. In recent years, increasing volume of literature identifies the important interaction between tumour cells and the surrounding stroma. Such tumour microenvironment comprises of complicated networking including cellular and non-cellular components and affects crucial signaling pathways factors that control tumour invasion and metastasis, chemoresistance and response to metabolic stress. Understanding of the most advanced breakthroughs and development in this field is of great importance to cancer researchers. It is expected that such knowledge is of utmost importance in developing novel prognostic marker that can better predict outcome of cancer patients as well as innovative therapeutic targets that can overcome chemoresistance and improve survival of our cancer patients. These concepts are included as main themes of the proposed ASI.

The lecturers are all well-renowned masters of the field and have contributed to high impact research. It will provide a precious opportunity for researchers from Hong Kong and the region to be enlightened directly and interactively from the masters in the field. The ASI also makes available a valuable platform of scientific networking which facilitates collaborative interactions among the local participants and the masters.

Croucher Foundation

The Croucher Foundation is an independent private foundation established by the late Noel Croucher in 1979 to promote the standard of the natural sciences, technology and medicine in Hong Kong

  • scholarships and fellowships for promising young Hong Kong scientists and medical doctors to pursue research overseas;
  • senior research fellowships to enable leading scientists in Hong Kong to spend a sabbatical year away from teaching and administrative work;
  • conferences, workshops and collaborative research to facilitate the exchange of ideas between Hong Kong scientists and their counterparts overseas;
  • demonstration lectures to promote a wider understanding of science among Hong Kong school students and undergraduate students; and
  • support for any undergraduate student in Hong Kong experiencing sudden financial difficulty.

Croucher Advanced Study Institute

An Advanced Study Institute (ASI) is a high-level teaching activity where a carefully defined subject, systematically presented, is treated in depth by lecturers of international standing, and new advances in a subject, not taught elsewhere, are reported in tutorial form. ASIs, as short courses, contribute to the dissemination of knowledge and the formation of international scientific contacts. The teaching in ASIs is aimed at established scientists with substantial scientific background in the topic being proposed.

Abstract

On 31st August 1997, Diana, Princess of Wales died as a result of injuries sustained in a car crash in the Pont de l’Alma road tunnel in Paris. Her companion Dodi Al-Fayed and the driver of the car, Henri Paul, were pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. The bodyguard, Trevor Rees-Jones, was the only occupant to survive the crash. There was a  universal outpouring of grief at her death which has rarely been witnessed in modern times. Her death became the subject was of an intensive investigation which lasted for over ten years until the inquest in 2008. Since February 1998, Dodi's father, Mohamed Al-Fayed (the owner of the Hôtel Ritz for which Paul worked) has claimed that the crash was a result of a conspiracy and has since contended that the crash was orchestrated by MI6. Fayed's claims that the crash was a result of a conspiracy were dismissed by a French judicial investigation and Operation Paget, a Metropolitan police inquiry that concluded in 2006. An inquest headed by Lord Justice Scott Baker into the deaths of Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed began at the Royal Courts of Justice London on 2 October 2007 and was a continuation of the original inquest that began in 2004. A jury decided on 7 April 2008 that Diana had been unlawfully killed by the grossly negligent driving of chauffeur Henri Paul and paparazzi photographers.

This lecture explores the circumstances surrounding her tragic death and discusses the claim that she may have been murdered or whether in fact her death was in reality, just a tragic accident.

“Somatic mutations in human cancer:
Genome-wide characterization of structural rearrangements

Dr. P. Andrew Futreal
Co-director of the Cancer Genome Project,
The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute

1:00 PM, Friday, May 22, 2009
Lecture Theatre, University Pathology Building
Queen Mary Hospital Compound
Pokfulam Road, Hong Kong

All are welcome

Biosketch: Dr. Futreal received his PhD in Pathology from the University of North Carolina in 1993. He then was an Assistant Professor at Duke University in the Departments of Surgery, Gynecologic Oncology and Genetics before moving to the to the UK in 2000 to start the Cancer Genome Project with Mike Stratton and Richard Wooster. He is currently Co-Director of the Cancer Genome Project with Mike Stratton and a Senior Investigator at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute. His research background includes work on identification of BRCA1 and BRCA2 as well as investigations into the somatic genetics of breast and gynaecological malignancies. His current research areas are using genome-based approaches to investigate the somatic genetics of human cancer - including high-throughput sequencing and array-based methods. This work has lead to the identification of BRAF as a new human cancer gene, and other progress including identification of ERBB2 mutations in lung cancer, FBXW7 and PTEN mutations in T-cell leukaemia, identification of chemo-resistance mechanisms in glioblastoma and identifying mutations implicating the histone modification machinery in solid tumours. His work also focuses on investigating the translation of basic research findings with a focus on applying somatic cancer genetics to clinical oncology problems.

Abstract

Multicellular organisms devote many different, genetically-defined pathways to their responses to injury. Some of these are shared by unicellular organisms (e.g. the heat shock, unfolded protein and autophagy responses). Others (including apoptosis) are widely employed by multicellular organisms, in which they also participate in the shaping of tissues and organs in normal development. Deficiency in these pathways carries high biological costs that include cancer, disorders of immunoregulation, and degenerative diseases of the CNS. This lecture focuses on the activation of apoptosis in cells that have been exposed to ionising radiation, a circumstance in which they receive double-strand DNA breaks. It discusses how injury signals are coupled to the apoptosis effector mechanism, how the threshold for activating cell death may be modified, and how, following injury, the death sentence may be repealed by the intra-nuclear particles called PML bodies. Finally, it seeks to indicate the relevance of these cellular reactions to human carcinogenesis.

About the speaker

Professor Andrew Wyllie graduated from Aberdeen University in Medicine in 1967 and completed his PhD there in 1975 under the supervision of Sir Alastair Currie. It was at this time, with Professor John Kerr from the University of Queensland, that his interest in the processes of cell death began. In 1972 he was co-author of the first paper formally describing the process of apoptosis and much of his research since then has been occupied with the cell and molecular biology of this process and its relevance in cancer. A histopathologist by training, he has worked in the Royal Postgraduate Medical School of London and the University of Edinburgh (where he was Head of Department until 1998), before taking up his present post as Professor of Pathology in the University of Cambridge. His current main research interest is the role of apoptosis in the genesis and treatment of human cancer, and colorectal cancer in particular. Apoptosis is now the focus of intense research in many laboratories worldwide and is the subject of thousands of articles. Wyllie’s contribution has been recognised in international awards including the Bertner Award of the M D Anderson Cancer Center, the Canadian Gairdner Foundation International Award and the Scheele Prize of the Swedish Pharmaceutical Society. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society and the Royal Society of Edinburgh, and a member of the Academia Europea and the British Academy of Medical Sciences. Throughout his career, and at present, he has been involved in teaching medical and other undergraduates the basic processes that underlie disease. He is married, with three children.

Differential Dosage Response of Human Cancer Cell Lines to Antimitotic Drugs:
from High-throughput Screens to Mechanistic Insights

Abstract:

Improving selectivity of anticancer drugs is one of the central issues in cancer research. One strategy is to target only dividing cancer cells with antimitotic drugs that perturb cell division, while sparing normal non-dividing cells. However, most currently available antimitotic drugs also cause serious toxicity to normal dividing cells in the bone marrow and gut. Therefore, antimitotic chemotherapy is in urgent need of drugs with higher selectivity for killing cancer cells. This requires exploiting differences in drug response among distinct cell types. Using both quantitative high-throughput phenotypic screens and image- based real-time analysis of dosage response to antimitotic drugs on a panel of human cancer cell lines, my work focuses on characterizing cell type specificity in drug response and identifying its molecular origin. Current results have revealed significant variability between cancer cell lines in their sensitivity to antimitotics, which correlates with both the mechanism of an individual drug and the innate apoptotic response of a specific cell line. The data suggests that the most likely place to find response differences between cell types and therefore to improve the selectivity of antimitotic drugs is in the mitotic stress pathway, which can potentially be targeted by combining antimitotics with stress-modulating agents.
