Linda Berg Luecke, a 2nd year graduate student in the MSTP program, received a 1-year renewable fellowship from the Clinical & Translational Science Institute (CTSI) Training Program (TL1). The award includes a monthly stipend, travel funds, and tuition. Her project will focus on defining the molecular features of a cell surface protein she discovered in cardiac fibroblasts from heart failure patients. Read More
In this collaborative manuscript with the Packer lab, we combined the use of hydrolyzed dextran as an internal standard and Skyline software for post-acquisition normalization to reduce retention time and peak area technical variation in PGC-based glycan analyses. This strategy was designed to facilitate the implementation of PGC-based separations in glycomics studies by providing a strategy to develop system-independent retention values to normalize technical variation.

In this manuscript, we demonstrate pitfalls with popular antibodies and sample preparation conditions commonly used for the assessment of cardiomyocyte identity within differentiation cultures. By using a rigorous fit-for-purpose workflow, the authors developed and validated a comprehensive protocol to accurately assess cardiomyocyte identity within hPSC-CM cultures. The new protocol includes stepwise instructions to facilitate its implementation by experts and novices, alike. Read More

In a collaboration between the laboratory of Steve Duncan at MUSC and the Gundry lab, we applied the Cell Surface Capture Technology and the Cell Surface Protein Atlas to map proteins on the surface of primary human hepatocytes. From here, new markers for sorting liver-like cells derived from human pluripotent stem cells were developed. The story is highlighted HERE.
