Measurements of mass spectral peak intensities and spectral counts are promising methods for quantifying protein abundance changes in shotgun proteomic analyses. We describe Serac, software developed to evaluate the ability of each method to quantify relative changes in protein abundance. Dynamic range and linearity using a three-dimensional ion trap were(More)
Protein interactions between MAP kinases and substrates, activators, and scaffolding proteins are regulated by docking site motifs, one containing basic residues proximal to Leu-X-Leu (DEJL) and a second containing Phe-X-Phe (DEF). Hydrogen exchange mass spectrometry was used to identify regions in MAP kinases protected from solvent by docking motif(More)
Identifying proteins in cell extracts by shotgun proteomics involves digesting the proteins, sequencing the resulting peptides by data-dependent mass spectrometry (MS/MS), and searching protein databases to identify the proteins from which the peptides are derived. Manual analysis and direct spectral comparison reveal that scores from two commonly used(More)
This tutorial article introduces mass spectrometry (MS) for peptide fragmentation and protein identification. The current approaches being used for protein identification include top-down and bottom-up sequencing. Top-down sequencing, a relatively new approach that involves fragmenting intact proteins directly, is briefly introduced. Bottom-up sequencing, a(More)
Studies of protein kinases have identified a "gatekeeper" residue, which confers selectivity for binding nucleotides and small-molecule inhibitors. We report that, in the MAP kinase ERK2, mutations at the gatekeeper residue unexpectedly lead to autoactivation due to enhanced autophosphorylation of regulatory Tyr and Thr sites within the activation lip that(More)
Post-translational modifications of proteins control many biological processes, and examining their diversity is critical for understanding mechanisms of cell regulation. Mass spectrometry is a fundamental tool for detecting and mapping covalent modifications and quantifying their changes. Modern approaches have made large-scale experiments possible,(More)
The regulation of histone deacetylases (HDACs) by phosphorylation was examined by elevating intracellular phosphorylation in cultured cells with the protein phosphatase inhibitor okadaic acid. After fractionation of extracts from treated versus untreated cells, HDAC 1 and 2 eluted in several peaks of deacetylase activity, assayed using mixed acetylated(More)
The Mps1 protein kinase is required for proper assembly of the mitotic spindle, checkpoint signaling, and several other aspects of cell growth and differentiation. Mps1 regulation is mediated by cell cycle-dependent changes in transcription and protein level. There is also a strong correlation between hyperphosphorylated mitotic forms of Mps1 and increased(More)
Phosducin and phosducin-like protein (PhLP) bind G protein betagamma subunits and regulate their activity. This report describes a previously uncharacterized binding partner unique to PhLP that was discovered by coimmunoprecipitation coupled with mass spectrometric identification. Chaperonin containing tailless complex polypeptide 1 (CCT), a cytosolic(More)
Duplication of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae spindle pole body (SPB) once per cell cycle is essential for bipolar spindle formation and accurate chromosome segregation during mitosis. We have investigated the role that the major yeast cyclin-dependent kinase Cdc28/Cdk1 plays in assembly of a core SPB component, Spc42, to better understand how SPB duplication(More)
