A novel method termed metal oxide affinity chromatography (MOAC) of enriching for phosphorylated proteins and peptides based on the affinity of the phosphate group for Al(OH)(3) is presented here. When compared to commercial phosphoprotein-enrichment kits, this method is more selective, more cost effective and easily applicable to method optimization. The(More)
Protein phosphorylation is accepted as a major regulatory pathway in plants. More than 1000 protein kinases are predicted in the Arabidopsis proteome, however, only a few studies look systematically for in vivo protein phosphorylation sites. Owing to the low stoichiometry and low abundance of phosphorylated proteins, phosphorylation site identification(More)
Reversible and differential multisite protein phosphorylation is an important mechanism controlling the activity of cellular proteins. Here we describe a robust and highly selective approach for the identification and relative quantification of site-specific phosphorylation events. This integrated strategy has three major parts: visualisation of(More)
Statistical mining and integration of complex molecular data including metabolites, proteins, and transcripts is one of the critical goals of systems biology (Ideker, T., Galitski, T., and Hood, L. (2001) A new approach to decoding life: systems biology. Annu. Rev. Genomics Hum. Genet. 2, 343-372). A number of studies have demonstrated the parallel analysis(More)
Methods such as mRNA expression profiling have provided a vast amount of genomic and transcriptomic information about plants and other organisms. However, there is explicit indication that considerable metabolic control is executed on the metabolite and on the protein level including protein modifications, thereby constituting the phenotypic plasticity.(More)
The standard strategy for analysis by tandem mass spectrometry of protein phosphorylation at serine or threonine utilizes the neutral loss of H3PO4 (= 97.977/z) from proteolytic peptide molecular ions as marker fragmentation. Manual control of automatically performed neutral loss-based phosphopeptide identifications is strongly recommended, since these data(More)
Many essential cellular functions such as growth rate, motility, and metabolic activity are linked to reversible protein phosphorylation, since they are controlled by signaling cascades based mainly on phosphorylation/dephosphorylation events. Quantification of global or site-specific protein phosphorylation is not straightforward with standard proteomic(More)
