Functional Proteomics in Metabolism in the Deshmukh Group
Our goal is to investigate protein dynamics and how they relate to metabolism. By using Mass-Spectrometry-based proteomics, we provide detailed understanding of the molecular mechanisms that regulate whole-body metabolism. We uncover new insights into metabolic disease, and strategies for their prevention and treatment.
- Mass-spectrometry Based Proteomics Reveals Mitochondrial Supercomplexome Plasticity
Published as a preprint in BioRxiv in 2019, this study provides deep insights into mitochondrial supercomplexome plasticity in skeletal muscle from sedentary and exercise-trained mice. This study illuminates previously undetectable complexity in mitochondrial plasticity.
- Proteomics-Based Comparative Mapping of the Secretome of Human Brown and White Adipocyte Reveals EPDR1 as a Novel Batokine
Published in Cell Metabolism in 2019, this study was among the first to map the secretomes of human brown and white adipocytes. The study identifies several novel batokines, including EPDR1, which is necessary for brown fat differentiation.
- Proteomics Analysis of Skeletal Muscle From Leptin-Deficient Ob/Ob Mice Reveals Adaptive Remodeling of Metabolic Characteristics and Fiber Type Composition
Published in Proteomics in 2018, this study shows that the enzymes involved in lipid metabolism in skeletal muscle from obese and insulin resistant mice were increased, providing evidence against reduced fatty acid oxidation in lipid-induced insulin resistance.
