Currently available methods for interrogating DNA-protein interactions at individual genomic loci have significant limitations, and make it difficult to work with unmodified cells or examine single-copy regions without specific antibodies. In this study, we describe a physiological application of the Hybridization Capture of Chromatin-Associated Proteins(More)
Proteomics is presently dominated by the "bottom-up" strategy, in which proteins are enzymatically digested into peptides for mass spectrometric identification. Although this approach is highly effective at identifying large numbers of proteins present in complex samples, the digestion into peptides renders it impossible to identify the proteoforms from(More)
In top-down proteomics, intact proteins are analyzed by tandem mass spectrometry and proteoforms, which are defined forms of a protein with specific sequences of amino acids and localized post-translational modifications, are identified using precursor mass and fragmentation data. Many proteoforms that are detected in the precursor scan (MS1) are not(More)
Shotgun proteomics utilizes a database search strategy to compare detected mass spectra to a library of theoretical spectra derived from reference genome information. As such, the robustness of proteomics results is contingent upon the completeness and accuracy of the gene annotation in the reference genome. For animal models of disease where genomic(More)
A proteoform family is a group of related molecular forms of a protein (proteoforms) derived from the same gene. We have previously described a strategy to identify proteoforms and elucidate proteoform families in complex mixtures of intact proteins. The strategy is based upon measurements of two properties for each proteoform: (i) the accurate proteoform(More)
Mass spectrometry-based proteomics has emerged as the leading method for detection, quantification, and characterization of proteins. Nearly all proteomic workflows rely on proteomic databases to identify peptides and proteins, but these databases typically contain a generic set of proteins that lack variations unique to a given sample, precluding their(More)
New electrochemical synthesis methods have been developed to obtain layered potassium niobates, KNb3O8 and K4Nb6O17, and perovskite-type KNbO3 as film-type electrodes. The electrodes were synthesized from aqueous solutions using the redox chemistry of p-benzoquinone and hydroquinone to change the local pH at the working electrode to trigger deposition of(More)
We present an open-source, interactive program named Proteoform Suite that uses proteoform mass and intensity measurements from complex biological samples to identify and quantify proteoforms. It constructs families of proteoforms derived from the same gene, assesses proteoform function using gene ontology (GO) analysis, and enables visualization of(More)
