Yin, L., et al. Early Second-Trimester Peptidomic Identification of Serum Peptides for Potential Prediction of Gestational Diabetes Mellitus. Cellular Physiology and Biochemistry. 51, 1264-1275. 27/11/2018.
A total of 297 identified peptides, originating from 228 proteins, were significantly differentially expressed in the GDM group compared with control. These precursor proteins may play critical roles in cell death of cortical neurons, elongation of cellular protrusions, and stabilization of microtubules. Major networks identified included those involving lipid metabolism, molecular transport and small molecule biochemistry.
