Article / Publication Details
Schizophrenia (SCZ) is a serious neuropsychiatric disorder that manifests through several symptoms from early adulthood. Numerous studies over the last decades have led to significant advances in increasing our understanding of the factors involved in SCZ. For example, mass spectrometry-based proteomic analysis has provided important insights by uncovering protein dysfunctions inherent to SCZ. Here, we present a comprehensive analysis of the nuclear proteome of postmortem brain tissues from corpus callosum (CC) and anterior temporal lobe (ATL). We show an overview of the role of deregulated nuclear proteins in these two main regions of the brain: the first, mostly composed of glial cells and axons of neurons, and the second, represented mainly by neuronal cell bodies. These samples were collected from SCZ patients in an attempt to characterize the role of the nucleus in the disease process. With the ATL nucleus enrichment, we found 224 proteins present at different levels, and 76 of these were nuclear proteins. In the CC analysis, we identified 119 present at different levels, and 24 of these were nuclear proteins. The differentially expressed nuclear proteins of ATL are mainly associated with the spliceosome, whereas those of the CC region are associated with calcium/calmodulin signaling.
