Understanding molecular mechanisms of disease through spatial proteomics.

Summary of "Understanding molecular mechanisms of disease through spatial proteomics."

Mammalian cells are organized into different compartments that separate and facilitate physiological processes by providing specialized local environments and allowing different, otherwise incompatible biological processes to be carried out simultaneously. Proteins are targeted to these subcellular locations where they fulfill specialized, compartment-specific functions. Spatial proteomics aims to localize and quantify proteins within subcellular structures.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The field of medicine concerned with understanding the biochemical basis of health and disease and involved in developing diagnostic and therapeutic methods that utilize MOLECULAR BIOLOGY techniques.

Methods used to take into account and incorporate spatial autocorrelation and regional variation into regression analysis models of data that has spatial dependency, and also to provide information on the spatial relationships among the variables.

A class of drugs producing both physiological and psychological effects through a variety of mechanisms. They can be divided into "specific" agents, e.g., affecting an identifiable molecular mechanism unique to target cells bearing receptors for that agent, and "nonspecific" agents, those producing effects on different target cells and acting by diverse molecular mechanisms. Those with nonspecific mechanisms are generally further classed according to whether they produce behavioral depression or stimulation. Those with specific mechanisms are classed by locus of action or specific therapeutic use. (From Gilman AG, et al., Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 8th ed, p252)
