Abstract
The unique ability of modern proteomics techniques offers a great opportunity for studying simultaneously all proteins in a sample. The present study was undertaken to examine proteome changes in milk in response to the severity of mastitis vis-?-vis normal milk in Murrah buffaloes. Milk was collected by hand milking and mastitis was detected by California Mastitis Test (CMT), followed by milk culture to identify micro flora. Samples collected from 4 normal and 13 CMT positive samples from organised herd at the Central Institute for Research on Buffaloes, Hisar (India) were classified as normal (4), CMT positive no abnormality detected in culture (NAD; 2), subclinical (5; Streptococci infection), subclinical mixed (2; Streptococci and Staphylocci infection) and clinical (4; Streptococci) infection. Fat removed samples were subjected to reduction of pH (~ 4.0) for casein removal, followed by sample preparation for two dimensional gel electrophoresis (2 DE). Samples (equal volume of proteins from individual samples) were pooled to make single sample for all proteomic studies. Isoelectric focussing (IEF) was accomplished using broad range (pH 3-10; 7cm) dry IPG strips at 5750 Volt- hour (Vh) followed by a 12.5% SDS-PAGE. The commisse blue stained gels so obtained were densitometrically analysed by ImageMaster 2D Platinum 7.0 software (GE Healthcare, USA) to visualize % volume changes in proteins embedded in spots of different categories. Taking normal milk as reference, a total of 17 spots ? 8 from subclinical, 5 from subclinical mixed, 3 from clinical and 1 from NAD were earmarked from a total of 110 matched spots which showed a change of ≥ 5 times. These differential exhibitions in protein profile of each category suggest that the udder immune system behave differently according to stage and type of infection. Mass spectrometric analysis of the proteins in differentially expressed spots can help in identifying these proteins which can further our understanding of the host immune response to mastitis.
