We have expanded our recent on-line LC-MS platform for large peptide analysis to combine collision-induced dissociation (CID), electron-transfer dissociation (ETD), and CID of an isolated charge-reduced (CRCID) species derived from ETD to determine sites of phosphorylation and glycosylation modifications, as well as the sequence of large peptide fragments(More)
We have developed pLink, software for data analysis of cross-linked proteins coupled with mass-spectrometry analysis. pLink reliably estimates false discovery rate in cross-link identification and is compatible with multiple homo- or hetero-bifunctional cross-linkers. We validated the program with proteins of known structures, and we further tested it on(More)
Better understanding how cells are regulated and adapt to their environment based on the reversible phosphorylation of proteins is a key question of current molecular and systems biology research. In this study, an advanced mass spectrometry based approach leveraging the electron transfer dissociation (ETD) technique in combination with CID using a linear(More)
Myofilament proteins are responsible for cardiac contraction. The myofilament subproteome, however, has not been comprehensively analyzed thus far. In the present study, cardiomyocytes were isolated from rodent hearts and stimulated with endothelin-1 and isoproterenol, potent inducers of myofilament protein phosphorylation. Subsequently, cardiomyocytes were(More)
Spermiogenesis is a series of poorly understood morphological, physiological and biochemical processes that occur during the transition of immotile spermatids into motile, fertilization-competent spermatozoa. Here, we identified a Serpin (serine protease inhibitor) family protein (As_SRP-1) that is secreted from spermatids during nematode Ascaris suum(More)
The use of electron-transfer dissociation as an alternative peptide ion activation method for generation of protein sequence information is examined here in comparison with the conventional method of choice, collisionally activated dissociation, using a linear ion trapping instrument. Direct comparability between collisionally and(More)
