Assessing Metal Accumulation in Biological Systems and the Transformations of Trace Organic Contaminants in the Environment Using Mass Spectrometric Methods
Industrialization has had a huge impact on the quality of the environment. Contaminants enter the environment via either natural or anthropogenic sources including wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), agricultural practices, ...
Development of Novel Ionstar-Based Methods for Large-Scale Tissue and Plasma Proteomics with High Sensitivity and Reproducibility
Quantitative proteomics concomitantly analyze numerous proteins in biological samples and thus allows the depiction of a global picture of a dynamically changing proteome, which is inaccessible to conventional reductionist ...
Tales of mass spectrometry applications: Detection of legacy and emerging contaminants in the environment
Environmental contaminants are naturally occurring, manufactured or man-made compounds which have been discovered to pose a threat to living organisms. The advancement in our knowledge on past and present contaminants in ...
Identifying and Overcoming Mechanisms of Impaired Myogenic Differentiation in Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma
Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) is the most common soft-tissue sarcoma in children and adolescents, and is thought to represent abortive myogenic differentiation due to histology and expression of skeletal muscle-specific factors. ...
A Stochastic Process Model for the Distribution of Hospital Charges and Length of Stay
Hospital length of stay (LOS) and total charge on discharge are two important measures of healthcare utilization and are generally positively skewed. A lognormal distribution for charge and a Phase-Type distribution for ...
Investigation of Sample Preparation Methods for the Analysis of PBDE and Metabolite Accumulation in Humans Using Gas Chromatography Tandem Mass Spectrometry
Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) are anthropogenic flame retardants that were widely used from the 1960s to resist flame propagation and dispersion in consumer products such as electronics, appliances, and polyeurathane ...
