SUMMARY The accurate mass and time (AMT) tag approach is used for analysis of large scale experiments by combining information generated over multiple datasets and instrument types. The VIPER software package is one of the key components of the data processing pipeline and implements automated algorithms to discover LC-MS features, align and match these(More)
Advanced proteomic research efforts involving areas such as systems biology or biomarker discovery are enabled by the use of high level informatics tools that allow the effective analysis of large quantities of differing types of data originating from various studies. Performing such analyses on a large scale is not feasible without a computational platform(More)
We report on the design and application of a high-efficiency multiple-capillary liquid chromatography (LC) system for high-throughput proteome analysis. The multiple-capillary LC system using commercial LC pumps was operated at a pressure of 10,000 psi to deliver mobile phases through a novel passive feedback valve arrangement that permitted mobile-phase(More)
Post-translational modifications (PTMs) of core histones work synergistically to fine tune chromatin structure and function, generating a so-called histone code that can be interpreted by a variety of chromatin interacting proteins. We report a novel online two-dimensional liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (2D LC-MS/MS) platform for(More)
Herein we describe a strategy for degradomic-peptidomic analyses. The human blood peptidome was isolated through application of AC/SEC, which enriched its components by >300-fold. The isolated peptidome components were separated by long column HRLC providing a peak capacity of approximately 300 for species having MWs of up to 20 kDa. The separated species(More)
In proteomics, effective methods are needed for identifying the relatively limited subset of proteins displaying significant changes in abundance between two samples. One way to accomplish this task is to target for identification by MS/MS only the "interesting" proteins based on the abundance ratio of isotopically labeled pairs of peptides. We have(More)
Capillary isoelectric focusing (CIEF) can provide high-resolution separations of complex protein mixtures, but until recently it has primarily been used with conventional UV detection. This technique would be greatly enhanced by much more information-rich detection methods that can aid in protein characterization. We describe progress in the development of(More)
We present results from a novel strategy that enables concurrent identification of protein-protein interactions and topologies in living cells without specific antibodies or genetic manipulations for immuno-/affinity purifications. The strategy consists of (i) a chemical cross-linking reaction: intact cell labeling with a novel class of chemical(More)
Tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) plays an important role in the unambiguous identification and structural elucidation of biomolecules. In contrast to conventional MS/MS approaches for protein identification where an individual polypeptide is sequentially selected and dissociated, a multiplexed-MS/MS approach increases throughput by selecting several(More)
