P.C. Teixeira, L.K. Iwai, A.C.K. Kuramoto, R. Honorato, A. Fiorelli, N. Stolf, J. Kalil and E. Cunha-Neto. Proteomic inventory of myocardial proteins from patients with chronic Chagas' cardiomyopathy. Braz J Med Biol Res 2006; 39: 1549-1562.
Figure 3. Validation of selected proteins by Western blot analysis of 6 myocardium samples from patients with chronic Chagas' disease cardiopathy. A, Identification of HSP60 (61 kDa), PDI (~55 kDa) and CuZn SOD (~23 kDa), which are involved in the oxidative stress process. B, Identification of apoptotic proteins, a and ß caspase 8 (~58 kDa) and caspase 2 (48 kDa). The processed form of caspase 8 (~26 kDa) was also identified. HSP = heat shock protein; PDI = protein disulfide isomerase; SOD = superoxide dismutase.
