"Exploring the Human smORFeome"

Determining the number and understanding the function of protein-coding genes in the human genome is one of the most important challenges in biology. Using a combination of cutting-edge proteomics and genomics tools we have found thousands of new protein-coding genes in the human genome. These protein-coding genes were initially missed because they encode proteins of less than a hundred amino acids (microproteins), revealing a blind spot in gene finding algorithms for small ORFs (smORFs). The functional characterization of several smORFs has led to the discovery of new pathways that regulate diverse cellular processes such as DNA repair and mitochondrial function. These results highlight the existence of a large new class of understudied protein-coding genes that should contain many additional bioactive microproteins.

"Defying conventional wisdom:  Developing carbon monoxide as a therapeutic agent"

 

Nitric oxide, hydrogen sulfide and carbon monoxide are all very toxic molecules, and yet they belong to the gasotransmitter family of signaling molecules with importance on par with that of neurotransmitters and hormone molecules. Studies have shown that these endogenously produced molecules have a wide range of physiologic roles and therapeutic potentials. Specific functions of these molecules are of course unique for each of them.  While the use of NO-producing molecules as therapeutics has long been established, the exploration of hydrogen sulfide and carbon monoxide as therapeutics is still at its infancy at best. This presentation will discuss issues related to developing carbon monoxide-based therapeutics and possible solutions.
