SWATH® Acquisition: On the Forefront of HIV-1 Research

World AIDS Day is held on the 1st December each year and is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV, and to commemorate people who have died. World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day, held for the first time in 1988.


A research team at the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) is using SWATH Acquisition to advance a host-oriented antiviral strategy that targets the biomolecules required for viral replication.

Using SWATH for quantitative proteomics together with bioinformatic analyses to identify host proteins, the team quantified the expression of 3,608 proteins in uninfected and HIV-1-infected monocyte-derived microphages.

Of these, they found that 420 were significantly altered upon HIV-1 infection, and the findings highlighted a novel set of proteins and processes that are involved in the host response to HIV-1 infection.

In this informative presentation, you’ll learn:

  • How to design a SWATH spectral library for a nucleic acid binding protein interactome using whole cell lysates
  • A unique informatics strategy that takes advantage of SWATH measurement reproducibility to overcome biological variations in compared samples

What are the differences between EPA methods 533 and 537.1?

With the risk of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) contamination and accumulation in humans and wildlife on the rise, it is important to continuously improve and demonstrate capabilities for accurate and precise low-level quantification in research and...

Rescheduling a Schedule I substance, and the Delta-8 controversy

Did you know that in the US, drugs and other chemicals are classified into 5 distinct categories depending on the drug’s acceptable medical use and its potential for abuse or dependency?  Drugs federally classified as Schedule I substances by the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) are considered to have the highest potential for abuse and for creating severe psychological and/or physical dependence. In addition to heroin, LSD and MDMA (ecstasy), cannabis is classified as a Schedule I substance in the Controlled Substance Act of 1970, which means it has no approved medical usage.

Using the Skyline / Panorama AutoQC tools for continuous monitoring your TripleTOF system performance

The Skyline team has developed a nice pipeline for evaluation of LC-MS/MS performance over time for MS systems in the research lab environment.  To help you use this solution, we have set up two Skyline Documents that you can use for continuous system monitoring....
