Comprehensive Proteomic Profiling of Pressure Ulcers in Patients with Spinal Cord Injury Identifies a Specific Protein Pattern of Pathology
Adv Wound Care. 2020; 9(5):277-294
Objective: Severe pressure ulcers (PUs) do not respond to conservative wound therapy and need surgical repair. To better understand the pathogenesis and to advance on new therapeutic options, we focused on the proteomic analysis of PU, which offers substantial opportunities to identify significant changes in protein abundance during the course of PU formation in an unbiased manner. Approach: To better define the protein pattern of this pathology, we performed a proteomic approach in which we compare severe PU tissue from spinal cord injury (SCI) patients with control tissue from the same patients. Results: We found 76 proteins with difference in abundance. Of these, 10 proteins were verified as proteins that define the pathology: antithrombin-III, alpha-1-antitrypsin, kininogen-1, alpha-2-macroglobulin, fibronectin, apolipoprotein A-I, collagen alpha-1 (XII) chain, haptoglobin, apolipoprotein B-100, and complement factor B. Innovation: This is the first study to analyze differential abundance protein of PU tissue from SCI patients using high-throughput protein identification and quantification by tandem mass tags followed by liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry. Conclusion: Differential abundance proteins are mainly involved in tissue regeneration. These proteins might be considered as future therapeutic options to enhance the physiological response and permit cellular repair of damaged tissue.
