In the present study, we investigated the differentially expressed proteins associated with ulcerative colitis (UC) using proteomic methods. Two-dimensional electrophoresis (2-DE) technology was performed to separate the total proteins of ulcerative tissues from those of the normal tissues of UC patients. PDQuest software was applied to analyze the obtained 2-DE images. Candidate protein spots between the two groups were identified using matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry and bioinformatics analysis. The well resolution and reproducible 2-DE patterns of UC and normal tissues were established. Of the 12 differentially expressed proteins, 9 were successfully identified, of which 6 proteins were up-regulated including apolipoprotein C-III, haptoglobin, receptor tyrosine kinase, aldehyde reductase, pericentriolar material 1, and heat shock factor protein 2, and 3 were down-regulated including keratin, filamin A-interacting protein 1, and tropomyosin 3. These identified proteins were related to hormonal modulation, immune response, oxidative stress, and signal conduction. The 2-DE protein expression profile of the UC tissues displays an obvious difference from that of the normal controls. Various proteins may be involved in the occurrence of UC.
