We have devised an approach for analyzing shotgun proteomics datasets based on the normalized spectral abundance factor that can be used for quantitative proteomics analysis. Three biological replicates of samples enriched for plasma membranes were isolated from S. cerevisiae grown in 14N-rich media and 15N-minimal media and analyzed via quantitative(More)
Mass spectrometry-based approaches are commonly used to identify proteins from multiprotein complexes, typically with the goal of identifying new complex members or identifying post-translational modifications. However, with the recent demonstration that spectral counting is a powerful quantitative proteomic approach, the analysis of multiprotein complexes(More)
In this study, S. cerevisiae crude membrane fractions were prepared using the acid-labile detergent RapiGest from cells grown under rich and minimal media conditions using 14N and 15N ammonium sulfate as the sole nitrogen source. Four independent MudPIT analyses of 1:1 mixtures of sample were prepared and analyzed via quantitative multidimensional protein(More)
MOTIVATION Identifying orthologous genes in multiple genomes is a fundamental task in comparative genomics. Construction of intergenomic symmetrical best matches (SymBets) and joining them into clusters is a popular method of ortholog definition, embodied in several software programs. Despite their wide use, the computational complexity of these programs(More)
The mammalian Tip49a and Tip49b proteins belong to an evolutionarily conserved family of AAA+ ATPases. In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, orthologs of Tip49a and Tip49b, called Rvb1 and Rvb2, respectively, are subunits of two distinct ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling complexes, SWR1 and INO80. We recently demonstrated that the mammalian Tip49a and Tip49b(More)
A phyletic vector, also known as a phyletic (or phylogenetic) pattern, is a binary representation of the presences and absences of orthologous genes in different genomes. Joint occurrence of two or more genes in many genomes results in closely similar binary vectors representing these genes, and this similarity between gene vectors may be used as a measure(More)
