    A new study entitled “Proteomic Analysis of the Cell Cycle of Procylic Form Trypanosoma brucei” has just been published in Molecular and Cellular Proteomics (Crozier et al., 2018, Mol Cell Proteomics 2018 17: 1184-1195). This study resulted from a collaboration between the laboratories of Mike Ferguson (BCDD) and Angus Lamond (GRE).  Trypanosoma brucei is an evolutionarily divergent eukaryotic protozoan parasite that causes human and animal trypanosomiasis (also called ‘sleeping sickness’) in sub-Saharan Africa.

    In a publication in eLife, Ly et al. report a workflow combining FACS and MS-based proteomics to analyse protein abundance and phosphorylation changes proteome-wide across the mitotic cell division cycle, including resolution of mitotic subphases. The approach, called PRIMMUS or proteomics of intracellular immunolabelled cell subsets, combines intracellular immunostaining, FACS, and mass spectrometry to isolate and analyse cell subsets defined by intracellular markers of cell cycle progression.

    Biochemists at the Universities of Liverpool and Dundee have been awarded a prestigious Wellcome Trust Collaborative Award in Science of more than £1.5M to study potential disease-causing mechanisms in the cell cycle. The team composed of Professor Sonia Rocha at the University of Liverpool’s Institute of Integrative Biology and Professors Angus Lamond, Jason Swedlow and Stewart Fleming at the University of Dundee will investigate the interplay between oxygen sensing proteins and cell division.
