Lines of research

Area of expertise interests the application of advanced mass spectrometry techniques (HPLC-ESI-IT MS, MALDI-TOF-MS, LTQ-Orbitrap) to structural and functional proteomic of biofluids, cells and tissues for the disease biomarkers characterization.  Principal investigations are carried on human saliva by Top-Down MS approaches. These studies established the different sources of the major salivary proteins and the qualitative/quantitative changes in relation to different physiological states (age, taste sensitivity). Drastic variations in salivary proteome occur during the foetal development and after birth in function of the growth. A link between basic proline-rich proteins and the sensitivity to bitter taste was evidenced. These studies represent the base for comparative studies including pathological conditions, localized in the oral cavity and systemic. Proteomic and peptidomic changes have been evidenced in different pathologies studied (Autism disorder, Type I Diabetes, Down Syndrome, Sjogren’s syndrome, oral cavity tumors, Schizophrenia and Immunological pathologies) and in other under study (Wilson disease, and Immunological pathologies). These changes reflect the role of S100 proteins, thymosin beta4, alfa-defensins, histatins, acidic proline-ric proteins, statherin, and of some enzyme pathways in the disease. Proteomics/ peptidomics studies on tissues extracts, currently underway, combined with immunohistochemical ones, are addressed to characterize potential biomarkers of colo-rectal cancer in human, and in particular to understand the role of thymosins in the epithelial-mesenchymal transition of the tumor. Such as biochemical/immunoistochemical studies investigate the role of thymosin beta4 in the development of embrional tissues.
Structural characterization of new salivary peptides with potential biological activity, is performed in human, pig and rat saliva.
