For example, he developed a multiplexed LCMS/MS assay of urine to monitor several renal metabolites, inclduing: kidney function marker (creatinine), Krebs cycle intermediates (citrate, succinate, and oxoglutarate), oxidative stress (trimethylamine oxide, TMAO), reabsorption (sorbitol), and active kidney secretion and aminoacylase activity (hippu-rate).
A comparison between the proteomes of these three silkworm strains (highly resistant, susceptible and isogenic hybrid) led to the identification of two differentially expressed proteins, beta-N-acetylglucosaminidase 2 and aminoacylase. The expression levels of these proteins were higher in the BmNPV resistant strains (LIU et al., 2010).
