MOTIVATION Proteomics has particularly evolved to become of high interest for the field of biomarker discovery and drug development. Especially the combination of liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry (LC/MS) has proven to be a powerful technique for analyzing protein mixtures. Clinically orientated proteomic studies will have to compare hundreds of(More)
Mass spectrometry is frequently used in quantitative proteomics to detect differentially regulated proteins. A very important but unfortunately oftentimes neglected part in detecting differential proteins is the statistical analysis. Data from proteomics experiments are usually high-dimensional and hence require profound statistical methods. It is(More)
The molecular mechanisms underlying insulin resistance in skeletal muscle are incompletely understood. Here, we aimed to obtain a global picture of changes in protein abundance in skeletal muscle in obesity and type 2 diabetes, and those associated with whole-body measures of insulin action. Skeletal muscle biopsies were obtained from ten healthy lean (LE),(More)
Today, label-free mass spectrometry methods are frequently used for quantification of proteins and peptides. There have been several proposals of measurable parameters that best reflect quantities, such as peak areas as well as spectral counts. This review provides a systematic overview of the proposed methods. Owing to the shotgun proteomics approach(More)
The organization and storage of proteomics data are challenging issues today and even more for the rising amount of information in the future. This review article describes the advantages of using Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) in proteomics laboratories. Seven typical LIMS are explored in detail to describe their role in an even bigger(More)
The importomer complex plays an essential role in the biogenesis of peroxisomes by mediating the translocation of matrix proteins across the organellar membrane. A central part of this highly dynamic import machinery is the docking complex consisting of Pex14p, Pex13p, and Pex17p that is linked to the RING finger complex (Pex2p, Pex10p, Pex12p) via Pex8p.(More)
Label-free MS-based quantification of peptides from LC-MS data is a valuable complement to MS-based quantification technologies such as SILAC, ICPL, or gel based quantification. However, statistically valid labelfree quantification of peptides and proteins from a digest of a proteomics sample in up to hundreds of LC-MS experiments is a challenge, as it(More)
