Proteomic analyses of ancient remains are increasing in number and offer great potential to recover phylogenetic information on extinct animals beyond the reach of ancient DNA, but limitations in proteomic techniques remain unclear. Here we carry out LC-MS/MS sequence analysis of a ~3.5 million year old giant camel specimen from Nunavut along with the younger Pleistocene remains of the Yukon giant camel (c.f. Paracamelus) and the western camel (Camelops hesternus) for comparison with complete… 
Description of a fossil camelid from the Pleistocene of Argentina, and a cladistic analysis of the Camelinae
TLDR
A divergence between Lamini and Camelini predating the Barstovian (16 Mya) is indicated, and Camelops appears as monophyletic within the Camelini.
Extinct species identification from Upper Pleistocene bone fragments not identifiable from their osteomorphological studies by proteomics analysis
TLDR
Proteomics successfully identified the bovidae and ursidae families providing new information to the paleontologists on these objects, and one retoucher was identified to be potentially from the Ursus spelaeus species.
Palaeoproteomic analysis of Pleistocene cave hyenas from east Asia
TLDR
This marks the first proteomic data generated from cave hyenas, adding new molecular data to the east Asian populations of Crocuta, and reveals two different groups of cave Hyenas in east Asia.
Deep Time Paleoproteomics: Looking Forward.
TLDR
The history and current state of deep time paleoproteomics (DTPp), here defined as Paleoproteomic study of samples ∼1 million years (1 Ma) or more in age, is discussed and the future of DTPp research is discussed, including what the authors see as critical ways the field can expand, advancements in technology that can be utilized, and the types of questions DTPP can address.
Multi-protease analysis of Pleistocene bone proteomes.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that Pleistocene bone proteomes can be significantly expanded by using additional proteases beside trypsin, and that this also improves sequence coverage of individual proteins.
Assessment of different screening methods for selecting palaeontological bone samples for peptide sequencing.
TLDR
This study has shown both chiral amino acid analysis and MALDI-ToF MS are reliable screening methods for predicting protein survival in fossils and both these methods are quick, cheap minimally destructive and can provide crucial additional information about the endogeneity of the surviving proteins.
The last caravans in antiquity: Camel remains from Caričin Grad (Justiniana Prima)
Abstract Camels played an important role in caravan traffic and long-distance communication during the early Byzantine period as indicated by new findings from Caricin Grad. Excavations at the site
Untangling the fibre ball: Proteomic characterization of South American camelid hair fibres by untargeted multivariate analysis and molecular networking.
TLDR
This study constitutes the first attempt to differentiate between hair fibres from the four South American Camelids (SACs) based on proteomic analysis of modern and archaeological samples, and proposes new SAC taxonomic peptides of interest in archaeozoology and fraud control.
Collagen fibril assembly: New approaches to unanswered questions
TLDR
Current models of collagen fibril self-assembly are reviewed, and how cells might exert control over the self- assembly process to define the number, length and organisation of fibrils in tissues are reviewed.

Genomic Data from Extinct North American Camelops Revise Camel Evolutionary History.
TLDR
It is found that Camelops is sister to African and Asian bactrian and dromedary camels, to the exclusion of South American camelids (llamas, guanacos, alpacas, and vicuñas).
Collagen Sequence Analysis of the Extinct Giant Ground Sloths Lestodon and Megatherium
TLDR
Examination of phylogenetic potential of proteomics-based sequencing through the analysis of collagen extracted from two extinct giant ground sloths, Lestodon and Megatherium highlights that proteomics methods could yield plausible phylogenies that share similarities with other methods, but have the potential to be more useful in fossils beyond the limits of ancient DNA survival.
Preserved Proteins from Extinct Bison latifrons Identified by Tandem Mass Spectrometry; Hydroxylysine Glycosides are a Common Feature of Ancient Collagen*
TLDR
Bone samples from several vertebrates collected from the Ziegler Reservoir fossil site, in Snowmass Village, Colorado, and processed for proteomics analysis resulted in extensive fibrillar collagen sequence coverage, including the identification of posttranslational modifications of collagen.

TLDR
A molecular phylogeny for both Macrauchenia patachonica (Litopterna) and Toxodon platensis (Notoungulata) recovered using proteomics-based (liquid chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry) sequencing analyses of bone collagen is presented, placing both taxa in a clade that is monophyletic with the perissodactyls, which today are represented by horses, rhinoceroses and tapirs.
A fossil protein chimera; difficulties in discriminating dinosaur peptide sequences from modern cross-contamination
TLDR
Collagen is extracted from bone samples of three individuals of ostrich to imply that cross-contamination cannot be ruled out, and that appropriate measures to test for endogeneity should be further evaluated.
A Molecular Phylogeny of Plesiorycteropus Reassigns the Extinct Mammalian Order ‘Bibymalagasia’
TLDR
The first known molecular sequence data for Plesiorycteropus is presented, obtained from the bone protein collagen (I), which places the ‘Malagasy aardvark’ as more closely related to tenrecs than aardVarks, suggesting that the taxonomic order ‘Bibymalagasia’ is obsolete.
Pattern and timing of diversification of Cetartiodactyla (Mammalia, Laurasiatheria), as revealed by a comprehensive analysis of mitochondrial genomes.
TLDR
The results indicate that the evolutionary history of cetartiodactyls was punctuated by four main phases of rapid radiation during the Cenozoic era, and shows that the high species diversity now observed in the families Bovidae and Cervidae accumulated mainly during the Late Miocene and Plio-Pleistocene.
Biomolecular Characterization and Protein Sequences of the Campanian Hadrosaur B. canadensis
TLDR
Microstructural and immunological data are consistent with preservation of multiple bone matrix and vessel proteins, and phylogenetic analyses of Brachylophosaurus collagen sequenced by mass spectrometry robustly support the bird-dinosaur clade, consistent with an endogenous source for these collagen peptides.
Protein Sequences from Mastodon and Tyrannosaurus Rex Revealed by Mass Spectrometry
TLDR
The presence of T. rex sequences indicates that their peptide bonds were remarkably stable, and mass spectrometry can be used to determine unique sequences from ancient organisms from peptide fragmentation patterns, a valuable tool to study the evolution and adaptation of ancient taxa from which genomic sequences are unlikely to be obtained.
Collagen survival and its use for species identification in Holocene-lower Pleistocene bone fragment
TLDR
A systematic investigation of amino acid composition and collagen peptide mass fingerprints (PMF) for a range of samples dating back approximately 1.5 million years extends the range for collagen sequencing to the Lower Pleistocene as confirmed by the presence of collagen peptides in bones from the Weybourne Crag.
