Bacterial Physiology A Proteomic Approach to Oral Diseases Oral Diseases Peter Zilm Microbiology Laboratory Dental School The University of Adelaide
Genomics versus Proteomics Post Genomic era- Reading of the human genome sequence Relatively few medical breakthroughs derived from genetic research - Can cellular processes be understood by screening genomes? - The organisation and timing of cellular events is not a projection of the genome and its transcription. Proteomics - relies on genomics to facilitate protein identification - which genes are important and under which circumstances - -combination of proteomic and genomic information will likely lead to the understanding of fundamental processes such as cell development and growth, cell differentiation, Cell signaling and cell death.
Proteomic Applications APPROACHESProfilingFunctionalStructural Characterisation of specific sub-sets of the proteome the proteome. Regulons or stimulons Macromolecular complex or sub-cellular compartment Immunogenic proteins Problems with specific post-translational modification Global Characterisation of proteome State1 (Healthy) State 2 (disease) Profile 1 Profile 2 Perturbation (signal)

Plaque as a Biofilm
Growth Changes & Cellular Fractionation Growth of F. nucleatum by continuous culture- maintain growth parameters while changing a single factor of interest. Growth conditions examined – growth rate growth temperature redox potential growth pH presence of chlorhexidine (antimicrobial) nutrient availability biofilm growth Sample preparation Sample preparation- a) consideration of mol. Wt. and pI. b) reduce the complexity of the protein mixture, (cytoplasmic and cell envelope). c) degradation of proteins by proteases d) removal of nucleic acids e) staining- determined by amount of protein f) protein contamination
