Investigation of protein CoAlation in the process of apoptosis (360G-Wellcome-207366_Z_17_Z)


CoAlation is a novel post-translational modification to proteins whereby Coenzyme A is covalently attached to proteins. It occurs as part of the oxidative stress response as an alternative mechanism to protein glutathionylation. It is specifically a modification of enzymes involved in cellular metabolism and protects catalytic thiol groups on active site cysteine residues from irreversible damage by reactive oxygen species and reactive nitrogen species. Applying oxidizing agents to cells results in induction of apoptosis. Such agents also induce protein CoAlation. The aims of this project are to monitor induction of apoptosis in HEK293 cells in response to treatment with oxidizing agents using anti-PARP3 and anti-Caspase 3 Western blot and Fluorescence-activated Cell Sorting and to analyse the pattern of CoAlation at different stages of apoptosis using anti-Coenzyme A Western blot.
