Dominant or submissive: Proteomic clues to behavioural disorders

Date: Aug 15, 2017

Author: Steve Down

The expression of many proteins in the hippocampi of mice are modified by dominant and submissive behaviour, say scientists in Israel in the first study of its kind which will help to decode the molecular mechanisms of psychiatric disorders and lead to therapeutic solutions.

Fast GC’s rapidity gives greater productivity

Date: Aug 15, 2017

Author: Ryan De Vooght-Johnson

GC-MS run times can now be much shorter than with traditional methods due to a number of recent developments. Scientists from Tel Aviv University applied a combination of open probe fast GC and mass spectrometry to obtain rapid results from a wide variety of different analytes.

No standards involved, but are all problems solved?

Date: Aug 15, 2017

Author: Ryan De Vooght-Johnson

Modern analytical techniques, such as HRMS (high-resolution mass spectrometry), enable the simultaneous detection of a large number of compounds, but normally rely on analytical standards of all the compounds being available, which may not be the case. Researchers from the Zurich Official Food Control Authority have developed an LC-HRMS method that identifies compounds without the use of standards, demonstrating its efficiency by identifying veterinary compounds spiked into meat and fish extracts.

LC-MS/MS detects dangerously doped drivers

Date: Aug 15, 2017

Author: Ryan De Vooght-Johnson

The detection of the levels of cannabis compounds and their metabolites is an important challenge to both medical practitioners and law enforcement agencies. Scientists from the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) in Baltimore have developed a new method to assay these compounds using enzymatic hydrolysis followed by LC-MS/MS.
