Comparative proteomic analysis of B. cenocepacia using two-dimensional liquid separations coupled with mass spectrometry.


Burkholderia cenocepacia is an important respiratory pathogen in persons with cystic fibrosis. We compared the proteomes of clinical and environmental isolates of B. cenocepacia by using a 2D liquid separation method coupled with mass spectrometry. Proteome maps of four B. cenocepacia isolates were generated. In the first dimension, 5 mg of protein from… (More)
