With the complete sequence of the yeast genome now available, efforts by many laboratories are underway to identify each of the spots on two-dimensional (2-D) gels corresponding to the most abundant yeast proteins. The high mass accuracy now attainable using matrix assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI)-mass spectrometry equipped with delayed(More)
Matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight (MALDI-TOF) mass spectrometry is now an essential tool in biopolymer analysis. Sensitivity and mass range are unsurpassed, but mass measurement accuracy and resolution have been limited. With delayed extraction and a reflecting analyzer, mass measurements using MALDI-TOF can be made with an accuracy(More)
Mass spectrometry-based quantitative proteomics has become an important component of biological and clinical research. Current methods, while highly developed and powerful, are falling short of their goal of routinely analyzing whole proteomes mainly because the wealth of proteomic information accumulated from prior studies is not used for the planning or(More)
We hereby report on a three year project initiative undertaken by our research team encompassing large-scale protein expression profiling and annotations of human primary lung fibroblast cells. An overview is given of proteomic studies of the fibroblast target cell involved in several diseases such as asthma, idiopatic pulmonary disease, and COPD. It has(More)
As a test case for optimizing how to perform proteomics experiments, we chose a yeast model system in which the UPF1 gene, a protein involved in nonsense-mediated mRNA decay, was knocked out by homologous recombination. The results from five complete isotope-coded affinity tag (ICAT) experiments were combined, two using matrix-assisted laser(More)
Matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization (MALDI) mass spectra have been obtained directly from thin-layer isoelectric focusing (IEF) gels with as little as 700 femtomoles of alpha- and beta-chain bovine hemoglobin and bovine carbonic anhydrase, and 2 picomoles of bovine trypsinogen, soybean trypsin inhibitor, and bovine serum albumin all loaded onto a(More)
The utility of matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight (MALDI-TOF) mass spectrometry for the analysis of C-terminal peptide ladders from carboxypeptidase Y (CPY) digestions is discussed. MALDI analysis of aliquots of an optimized time-dependent CPY digestion of ACTH 7-38 fragment allowed for the sequence of the first 19 amino acids from(More)
Miniaturized liquid chromatography nanoseparation in combination with minigel fractionation of human primary cell nuclei is presented. We obtained high-sensitivity and high-throughput identification of expressed proteins by subcellular fractionation and nanocapillary liquid chromatography interfaced to both electrospray ionization (ESI)- and matrix-assisted(More)
