Stable isotope labeling is widely used to encode and quantify proteins in mass-spectrometry-based proteomics. We compared metabolic labeling with stable isotope labeling by amino acids in cell culture (SILAC) and chemical labeling by stable isotope dimethyl labeling and find that they have comparable accuracy and quantitative dynamic range in unfractionated(More)
Interest in protein methylation has grown rapidly in recent years. Mass spectrometry-based proteomics is ideally suited to characterize protein modifications, but the multiplicity of methylated residues and the lack of efficient methods to enrich methylated proteins have limited the proteomic identification of protein methylation sites. In this protocol, we(More)
Specific functions for different cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterases (PDEs) have not yet been identified in most cell types. Conventional approaches to study PDE function typically rely on measurements of global cAMP, general increases in cAMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA), or the activity of exchange protein activated by cAMP (EPAC). Although newer(More)
