IAB launches a Metabolome Consortium to push forward its leading metabolome analysis platform

IAB launches on June 10 a "The Metabolome Consortium"which aims to promote the use of IAB's own metabolome analysis methods based on capillary electrophoresis time-of-flight mass spectrometry (CE-TOFMS) and the related metabolomic database by other groups such as pharmaceutical industries. The CE-TOFMS methods were developed by Dr.Tomoyoshi Soga's research group under the direction of Dr. Masaru Tomita.

 

Large-scale phosphorylation mapping reveals the extent of tyrosine phosphorylation in Arabidopsis.

Large-scale phosphorylation mapping reveals the extent of tyrosine phosphorylation in Arabidopsis.

A team of IAB and RIKEN researchers published this week that they identified on a large-scale, phosphorylation sites of Arabidopsis proteins. Most cellular processes in Arabidopsis, a widely-used plant model, are likely to be regulated at least in part by various phosphorylation events which appear strikingly similar to the human phosphoproteome profile. The results are published in Molecular Systems Biology (6 May 2008. 4: 193 doi:10.1038/msb.2008.32). The research group consists of the following researchers; Dr. Yasushi Ishihama of IAB, Dr. Naoyuki Sugiyama, Leader of Biomedical Group at Human Metabolome Technologies,Inc., Dr. Ken Shirasu, Group Director and Dr. Hiroshi Nakagami, Research Scientist of Plant Immunity Research Group at RIKEN Plant Science Center.
