Elucidation of endogenous cellular protein-protein interactions and their networks is most desirable for biological studies. Here we report our study of endogenous human coregulator protein complex networks obtained from integrative mass spectrometry-based analysis of 3290 affinity purifications. By preserving weak protein interactions during complex(More)
Cohesin is a protein complex that plays an essential role in pairing replicated sister chromatids during cell division. The vertebrate cohesin complex consists of four core components including structure maintenance of chromosomes proteins SMC1 and SMC3, RAD21, and SA2/SA1. Extensive research suggests that cohesin traps the sister chromatids by a V-shaped(More)
Chromatin immunoprecipitation studies have mapped protein occupancies at many genomic loci. However, a detailed picture of the complexity of coregulators (CoRs) bound to a defined enhancer along with a transcription factor is missing. To address this, we used biotin-DNA pull-down assays coupled with mass spectrometry-immunoblotting to identify at least 17(More)
Estrogen receptor (ER) alpha is an essential component in human physiology and is a key factor involved in the development of breast and endometrial cancers. ERalpha protein levels and transcriptional activity are tightly controlled by the ubiquitin proteasome system. Deubiquitinating enzymes, a class of proteases capable of removing ubiquitin from(More)
Steroid receptor coactivator-3 (SRC-3/AIB1) is an oncogene frequently amplified and overexpressed in breast cancers. Here we report that SRC-3 interacts with REGgamma, a proteasome activator known to stimulate the trypsin-like activity of the 20S proteasome. RNAi knockdown and gain-of-function experiments suggest that REGgamma promotes SRC-3 protein(More)
We report our initial efforts in the analysis of endogenous nuclear receptor coactivator complexes as a research bridging strand of the Nuclear Receptor Signaling Atlas (NURSA) (www.NURSA.org). A proteomic approach is used to systematically isolate a variety of coactivator complexes using HeLa cells as a model cell line and to identify the(More)
Immunoprecipitation followed by mass spectrometry (IP/MS) has recently emerged as a preferred method in the analysis of protein complex components and cellular protein networks. Targeting endogenous protein complexes of higher eukaryotes, particularly in large-scale efforts, has been challenging due to cellular heterogeneity, high proteome complexity, and,(More)
The current in-depth proteomics makes use of long chromatography gradient to get access to more peptides for protein identification, resulting in covering of as many as 8000 mammalian gene products in 3 days of mass spectrometer running time. Here we report a fast sequencing (Fast-seq) workflow of the use of dual reverse phase high performance liquid(More)
The focus of our decade-long National Institutes of Health-sponsored NURSA Proteomics Atlas was to catalog and understand the composition of the steady-state interactome for all nuclear receptor coregulator complexes in a human cell. In this Perspective, we present a summary of the proteomics of coregulator complexes with examples of how one might use the(More)
Transcription factors (TFs) are families of proteins that bind to specific DNA sequences, or TF response elements (TFREs), and function as regulators of many cellular processes. Because of the low abundance of TFs, direct quantitative measurement of TFs on a proteome scale remains a challenge. In this study, we report the development of an affinity reagent(More)
