Background: The aim of the study is to compare the performances of BNP and NT-proBNP for diagnosing heart failure (HF) in a population of patients with high incidence of chronic renal insufficiency (CRI, plasma creatinine > 1.5 mg/dl). Patients and methods: Ninety-eight patients were included in this study. BNP and NT-proBNP determinations were performed by an immunofluorescent assay (Biosite®) and by an electrochemiluminescence sandwich immuno assay (Roche Diagnostic®), respectively. Results and discussion: BNP and NTproBNP level are correlated in CRI and non CRI . Both assays are useful to rule out CRI pts suspected of HF. However, in renal failure pts, higher decision limits should be used for improving the positive predictive value of the assays. [less ▲]Detailed reference viewed: 220 (9 ULg)

Recently, anti-deamidated gliadin antihodies were proposed for the serological diagnosis of celiac disease. We evaluate the specificity of different anti-deamidated gliadin antibodies ELISA in comparison with conventional anti-native gliadin kits. Serum sainples froin 46 non celiac patients trere analyzed by five different quantitative ELISA for anti-native gliadin, antideamidated gliadin and anti-fransglutaininase neo-epitope antibodies together with a screening ELISA. Twenty-four percent of the patients deinonstrated anti-native gliadin lgA and 63% 1gO antibodies. Using anti-dearnidated gliadin antibodies, tire number of false positive IgA and, particularly, 1gG results,markedly decreased in the non celiac patients: 21 and 24% respectively with anti-Gliadin (GAF-3X) Euroimmun kit, 7 and 26% with Bindazyme 1-lurnan Anti-Gliadin (MGP) The Binding Site kit and 0 and 41% with Celiac G+ Immco kit. The new assay which makes use of the physiological complex of tissue transglutaminase cross-linked with deamidated gliadin peptides, called neo-epitope, did not improve the differential diagnosis of celiac disease with 30% of false positive results in IgG (2% in IgA). IJsing the Inova screening kit, a positive resuit for IgA and/or IgG anti-deamidated gliadin and!or anti- tissue transglutaminase antibodies was obtained in 24% of the non celiac patients. In conclusion, our study assessed the superiority, in ternis of specificity, of anti-deamidated gliadin antibodies, over the conventional anti-gliadin antibodies for die differential diagnosis of celiac disease.

The oncogenic protein BCL-3 activates or represses gene transcription through binding with the NF-kappaB proteins p50 and p52 and is degraded through a phospho- and GSK3-dependent pathway. However, the mechanisms underlying its degradation remain poorly understood. Yeast-two-hybrid analysis led to the identification of the proteasome subunit PSMB1 as a BCL-3-associated protein. The binding of BCL-3 to PSMB1 is required for its degradation through the proteasome. Indeed, PSMB1-depleted cells are defective in degrading polyubiquitinated BCL-3. The N-terminal part of BCL-3 includes lysines 13 and 26 required for the K48-linked polyubiquitination of BCL-3. Moreover, the E3 ligase FBW7 known to polyubiquitinate a variety of substrates phosphorylated by GSK3 is dispensable for BCL-3 degradation. Thus, our data defined an unique motif of BCL-3 that is needed for its recruitment to the proteasome and identified PSMB1 as a key protein required for the proteasome-mediated degradation of a nuclear and oncogenic IkappaB protein.

In most diseases, the clinical need for serum/plasma markers has never been so crucial, not only for diagnosis, but also for the selection of the most efficient therapies, as well as exclusion of ineffective or toxic treatment. Due to the high sample complexity, prefractionation is essential for exploring the deep proteome and finding specific markers. In this study, three different sample preparation methods (i.e., highly abundant protein precipitation, restricted access materials (RAM) combined with IMAC chromatography and peptide ligand affinity beads) were investigated in order to select the best fractionation step for further differential proteomic experiments focusing on the LMW proteome (MW inferior to 40,000 Da). Indeed, the aim was not to cover the entire plasma/serum proteome, but to enrich potentially interesting tissue leakage proteins. These three methods were evaluated on their reproducibility, on the SELDI-TOF-MS peptide/protein peaks generated after fractionation and on the information supplied. The studied methods appeared to give complementary information and presented good reproducibility (below 20%). Peptide ligand affinity beads were found to provide efficient depletion of HMW proteins and peak enrichment in protein/peptide profiles. [less ▲]Detailed reference viewed: 87 (19 ULg)

High-sensitivity C-reactive protein predicts future cardiovascular events in both healthy individuals and patients with unstable and stable coronary syndromes. Few data are available about the incidence and the relation to inflammation of troponin elevation following percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), a potential predictor of longterm outcome. We sought to confirm the impact of embolization on long-term outcome and evaluate the ability of baseline inflammation to predict troponin elevation induced by PCI. We prospectively analyzed 200 patients treated by PCI for stable or Braunwald IIA class unstable angina. The patients were recruited between January 1997 and May 1999, and the population was followed during a mean follow-up of 32 months. Major adverse cardiac events (MACEs) were defined as the occurrence of death, myocardial infarction or recurrent angina requiring repeat PCI, or coronary artery bypass grafting. During the follow-up period, 58 MACEs were observed. By multivariate analysis, independent predictors for the occurrence of MACEs were unstable angina and troponin I level after PCI (P < 0.0001 for both). No correlation was found between baseline inflammation and significant troponin I elevation post PCI and by multivariate analysis, no biological variable was a predictor of troponin I elevation post PCI. Baseline inflammation cannot predict onset of minor myonecrosis damage (expressed by troponin elevation) induced by PCI, a significant predictor of long-term outcome in this setting.
