Top-down characterization of lunasin in a commercial soybean-derived product
ABSTRACT: The presence of lunasin was investigated in two soybean products, raw soy seeds and a commercial soybean beverage powder. Lunasin from the commercial soybean derivative was purified by reverse phase high pressure liquid chromatography and bystrong anion exchange solid phase extraction. Lunasin was further characterized by Top-down mass spectrometry (MS). The top-down characterization of lunasin unraveled a wide range of post-translationally modified proteoforms.
Nutraceuticals have been proposed to exert positive effects on human health and confer protection against many chronic diseases. A major bioactive component of soy-based foods is lunasin peptide, which has potential to exert a major impact on the health of human consumers worldwide, but the biochemical features of dietary lunasin still remain poorly characterized. In this study, lunasin was purified from a soy-based food product via strong anion exchange solid phase extraction and then subjected ...[more]
Project description:Soybean, which provides abundant proteins and edible oil, is an important crop; however, it is very sensitive to flooding stress. The growth and grain yields of soybean are seriously reduced by flooding stress. To explore the initial flooding-tolerant mechanism of soybean, flooding-tolerant mutant line and ABA treated soybean were used. Because both material and treatment showed the flooding tolerance, the commonly changed proteins in plants under initial flooding stress were identified. To identify the common proteins, gel free/label free proteomic technique was used.
Project description:We deep sequenced a degradome library constructed from different soybean tissues. As a result, 19,830,257 represented 5,337,590 distinct signatures were obtained. 70.98% of the signatures were assigned to one soybean cDNA sequence and 24.05% matched with two cDNA sequences. 428 potential targets of small RNAs and 25 novel miRNA families were identified in soybean. A total of 211 potential miRNA targets including 150 conserved miRNA targets and 69 soybean-specific miRNA targets were identified. The signatures distribution on soybean primary miRNAs (pri-miRNAs) showed that most of the pri-miRNAs had the characteristic pattern of Dicer processing. The TAS3 small RNAs (siRNAs) biogenesis was conserved in soybean and nine Auxin Response Factors (ARFs) were identified as the TAS3 siRNA targets. The global identification of miRNAs targets would contribute to the functional research of the miRNA in soybean. one sample, We deep sequenced a degradome library constructed from different soybean tissues.
Project description:Flooding stress has a negative impact on the soybean cultivation in early growth stages. In order to understand the effect of nanosilver on the soybean growth under flooding stress, quantitative proteomics technique was used.
Project description:Flooding has a severe negative effect on cultivation in the early stage of soybean growth. To understand the role of protein phosphorylation in early-stage soybean responding to flooding stress, quantitative phosphoproteomic technique was used.
Project description:Flooding stress has a negative impact on soybean cultivation because it severely impairs growth and development. To understand the flooding responsive mechanism in early stage soybeans, a glycoproteomic technique was used
Project description:Affymetrix soybean genome arrays were used to identify genes differentially expressed in the immune resistance response at 6, 12, 24, and 48 hours after inoculation with Phakopsora pachyrhizi isolates TW72-1 or HW94-1; soybean + HW94-1 = resistant; soybean + TW72-1 = susceptible Experiment Overall Design: For each of 4 time points (6, 12, 24 and 48 hours post inoculation) a soybean PI200492 plant was inoculated with 2 treatments: HW94-1, or TW72-1. A mock inoculation was performed and sampled at time 0. There were three biological replicates of the entire experiment, for a total of 27 samples. During data analysis two samples failed the quality control metrics and were removed from the analysis, leaving 25 samples in the final data set.
Project description:As a stresses sensitive crop, this study will give some clues to enhance soybean tolerance of flooding and drought stresses. To uncover the response mechanisms occurring in the ER triggered by flooding and drought, ER proteomics was performed using gel-free/label-free proteomic approach. Besides, glycoproteomics was also producted to investigate the ER funtion in glycoprotein synthesis under stresses
Project description:To decipher stress responses under flooding and drought as well as flooding-tolerant mechanisms in soybean, the mathematic biological approach of simulation model was applied. Furthermore, wild-type soybean with ABA treatment and flooding-tolerant mutant line, which displayed flooding tolerance, were used as the flooding-tolerant materials. Proteins acquired by gel-free/label-free proteomic technique were used for simulation model of responses under different stresses and flooding tolerant.
Project description:To explore the mechanism underlying antioxidant activity of extracts from black soybean sprouts 0.5 cm long, Agilent-016772 G. max (Soybean) Oligo Microarray 4x44K was used to compare mRNA expression between the black soybean sprouts 0.5 cm long (n=4) and the black soybean sprouts 5 cm long (n=4). GO term enrichment analysis showed ten up-regulated genes (BE823689.1_567, GMFL01-02-F14-R_381, GMFL01-03-G22-R_364, GMFL01-14-M12-R_553, GMFL01-51-M23-R_265, AW757007.1_297, AW761420.1_260, BI788389.1_501, BQ273202.1_332 and GMFL01-10-I14-F_701) in the 0.5 cm seedlings were associated with response to oxidative stress. qRT-PCR assay confirmed the up-regulation of these ten genes in sprouts 0.5 cm long. In conclusion, these ten genes may contribute to antioxidant activity of sprout extract. Gene expressions in black soybean sprouts were measured using Agilent-016772 G. max (Soybean) Oligo Microarray 4x44K. Four independent experiments were performed in each group using different sprout sample.
Project description:GmMYB176, an R1 MYB transcription factor regulates isoflavonoid biosynthesis in soybean. In the current experiment, GmMYB176 was silenced (GmMYB176-Si) or overexpressed (GmMYB176-OE) in soybean hairy roots and their effect on transcriptome was studied. RNA-Seq analyses of GmMYB176-Si and GmMYB176-OE along with control non-transformed soybean hairy roots revealed that alteration of gene expression of GmMYB176 affects gene regulation of hundreds of genes in soybean.
