Mn ps final oral presentaion rise corrected

  1. 1. PROTEIN SEPARATION USING MAGNETIC NANOPARTICLES Anthony Maldonado Castro Félix Vallés Dr. Vibha Bansal RISE Program
  2. 2. Proteins  Proteins- macromolecules that consist of up to 20 different amino acids  Play key functions in the living system such as carrying oxygen, controlling the sugar levels in the blood and defending against foreign cells, pathogens and bacteria.  Isolation of proteins may have different purposes such as catalyst usage, therapeutics, dietary supplements and structure studies.
  3. 3. What did we use? SDS PAGE  Fibrin Zymography
  4. 4. Sodium dodecyl sulfate PAGE  An electrophoretic technique in which proteins are separated according to size.  In this particular project it is used to estimate the concentration of protein in each sample.
  5. 5. Fibrin Zymography.  Fibrin zymography is an electrophoretic technique for the detection of hydrolytic enzymes.  It can be used for peptidase investigation, identifications and characterizations in biological living systems.  For example, it could be used to detect low levels or absence of thrombin, the active form of prothrombin, which converts fibrinogen to fibrin, that is essential for blood coagulation.
  6. 6. Fibrin Zymography vs. SDS PAGE  SDS PAGE- used to determine the prescence of proteins  Fibrin Zymography- used to determine enzyme activity
  7. 7. Magnetic Nanoparticles (MNPs)  MNPs are more efficient than traditional separation methods since they are:  Fast  Scalable  Easily automated and separated from other suspended solids  They reduce the pretreatment and chromatography stages into a single step isolation when combined with affinity binding.
  8. 8. Tissue Plasminogen Activator (tPA)  Tissue plasminogen activator (tPA), is a protease found in endothelial cells involved in the breakdown of blood clots by catalyzing plasminogen to plasmin, an enzyme responsible for fibrin clot breakdown.  “Since tPA is free of immune side effects and has short half-life, it is considered an excellent thrombolytic agent for medical use”. (Byong- Gon P, et al. 2000)
  9. 9. Tissue Plasminogen Activator (tPA) (cont.)  “t-PA is a poor plasminogen activator in the absence of fibrin. However, in the presence of fibrin, its activity is two orders of magnitude higher. The kinetic model indicates that both t- PA and plasminogen bind to fibrin in a sequential and ordered way, yielding a cyclic ternary complex in which t-PA has a markedly enhanced affinity for its substrate plasminogen.” (Collen D, Lijnen HR. 2009)

  11. 11. Tissue Plasminogen Activator (tPA) (cont.)  “Malignant tumors frequently secrete plasminogen activator activity, and that their malignancy correlates with the level of “malignant protease” secreted. This protease activity could be inhibited with plasma α2- antiplasmin, a plasmin inhibitor that can rapidly inactivate free plasmin in the blood. (Collen D, Lijnen HR. 2009)
  12. 12. Tissue Plasminogen Activator (tPA) (cont.)  “This study demonstrates that in this rat thromboembolic model of stroke, tPA-induced hemorrhage is dependent on blood pressure and that pharmacological reduction of hypertension during fibrinolysis can reduce the risk of hemorrhagic transformation.” (Emiri T, et al. 2001)
