Imaging mass spectrometry detects early lipid changes in acute kidney injury

University of Alabama at Birmingham, USA, researchers have made a microscopic snapshot of the early renal lipid changes in acute kidney injury, using matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionisation (MALDI) tissue imaging to localise the changes.

NMR-ESR-synuclein-sThe protein α-synuclein plays an important role in Parkinson’s and other neurodegenerative diseases. Although a considerable amount is known about the structure of the protein within the Parkinson’s-typical amyloid deposits, nothing was known about its original state in the healthy cell up to now. High-resolution nuclear magnetic resonance and electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy have helped to visualise the protein in healthy cells.
