Abstract

Understanding the complexity of some diseases is one of the greatest challenges currently facing medicine. Likewise for schizophrenia (SCZ), a multifactorial and severe psychiatric disorder, which may affect up to 1% of world population. The molecular mechanisms of schizophrenia are not yet fully elucidated, then invoking the use of appropriate scientific approaches to this end. Proteomics has emerged in the post-genomic era as a promising strategy to identify key targets and markers in the development and pathophysiology pathways of diseases. More recently, the emergence of induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) has enriched research on the understanding of human complex diseases, as a new and valuable tool that preserves the genetic diversity of donors, in addition to providing the ability to generate all cell types of an individual.Therefore, this project aims to combine neuroproteomics and iPSCs technology generated from schizophrenia patients and controls. The goal is to reveal groups of proteins that are differentially expressed in neural cells - progenitors, neurons and cerebral organoids (mini-brains) - generated from fibroblast of patients and healthy donors, aiming to characterize key-proteins implicated in this process.The study of schizophrenia cells derived directly from patients may lead to an integrated view of the expression of proteins during brain development, leading to the identification of biochemical pathways impaired. In addition, it will establish a platform for in vitro study of schizophrenia, with potential of control and manipulation of impaired pathways. Global analysis of protein expression during cell development stages may assist the search for new therapies targeting more personalized treatment of disease. (AU)
