Improved identification of enriched peptide–RNA cross-links from ribonucleoprotein particles (RNPs) by mass spectrometry
TLDR
The feasibility of a strategy that combines small-scale reversed-phase liquid chromatography of UV-irradiated and hydrolyzed RNPs, immobilized metal-ion affinity chromatography (IMAC) to enrich cross-linked species and their analysis by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionisation (MALDI) MS(/MS) is demonstrated.
Characterization of Ribonucleoproteins by Cross-linking and Mass Spectrometry
TLDR
Chromatographic and mass spectrometric methods for analyzing RNA-Protein cross-links show that cross-linking in combination with mass spectromaetry is a valuable tool for the analysis of ribonucleoproteins.
Sequence analysis of peptide:oligonucleotide heteroconjugates by electron capture dissociation and electron transfer dissociation
Selective Detection of Peptide-Oligonucleotide Heteroconjugates Utilizing Capillary HPLC-ICPMS
TLDR
It is found that trifluoroacetic acid (TFA) mobile phases and hexafluoroisopropanol/triethylamine mobile phases, used in conventional oligonucleotide separations, both are compatible with ICPMS and enable heteroconjugate separation.
Relative quantitation of transfer RNAs using liquid chromatography mass spectrometry and signature digestion products
TLDR
The combination ofrelative quantification via enzyme-mediated isotope labeling with this signature digestion approach for the relative quantification of tRNAs is described, and it is found that up to 5-fold changes in tRNA abundance can be quantified from sub-microgram amounts of total tRNA.
Synthetic Peptide Arrays for Pathway-Level Protein Monitoring by Liquid Chromatography-Tandem Mass Spectrometry*
TLDR
A target-driven liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) strategy for selectively examining the levels of multiple low abundance components of signaling pathways which are refractory to standard shotgun screening procedures and hence appear limited in current MS/MS repositories is reported.
Mass spectrometric analysis of cross-linking sites for the structure of proteins and protein complexes.
TLDR
An overview of the technology with a focus on advances in the last two years shows cross-linking mass spectrometry has a great potential to become a powerful tool to supplement current X-ray and NMR method of protein structure analysis.
Mapping the binding site of snurportin 1 on native U1 snRNP by cross-linking and mass spectrometry
TLDR
This work applied chemical and UV cross-linking combined with tandem mass-spectrometric analysis to identify contact sites of the nuclear import adaptor snurportin 1 to the small ribonucleoprotein particle U1 snRNP and was able to define previously unknown sites of protein–protein and protein–RNA interactions on the molecular level within U1snRNP.

Complete MALDI-ToF MS analysis of cross-linked peptide-RNA oligonucleotides derived from nonlabeled UV-irradiated ribonucleoprotein particles.
TLDR
An improved methodology for the sequence analysis of purified peptide-RNA oligonucleotide cross-links that is based solely on MALDI-ToF mass spectrometry is described, showing that the use of 2',4',6'-trihydroxyacetophenone (THAP) as MAL DI matrix allows analysis of cross-linked peptide and RNA moieties in the reflectron mode at high resolution, enabling sufficient accuracy to assign unambiguously cross- linked RNA sequences.
Direct observation of UV-crosslinked protein-nucleic acid complexes by matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization mass spectrometry.
TLDR
It is found that successful MALDI mass spectrometry of protein-nucleic acid complexes is as critically dependent on the choice of solvents and additives as it is on the primary matrix compound.
Analysis of site-specific protein-RNA cross-links in isolated RNP complexes, combining affinity selection and mass spectrometry.
TLDR
To facilitate identification of proteins independent of the availability of antibodies for immunoprecipitation or Western blot studies, site-specific protein-RNA cross-links were purified in a large scale, which were then used for mass spectrometry (MS).
Mass spectrometry of UV-cross-linked protein-nucleic acid complexes: identification of amino acid residues in the single-stranded DNA-binding domain of human replication protein A.
TLDR
The results obtained in this study demonstrate that a combination of exhaustive proteolysis and MALDI TOF MS can localize the sites of DNA binding to very short sequences of amino acids.
Identification of tyrosine 204 as the photo-cross-linking site in the DNA-EcoRI DNA methyltransferase complex by electrospray ionization mass spectrometry.
TLDR
A highly sensitive strategy combining laser-induced photo-cross-linking and HPLC-based electrospray ionization mass spectrometry to identify amino acid residues involved in protein-DNA recognition, which provides an accurate characterization of picomole quantities of DNA-protein complexes.
A novel strategy for the identification of protein-DNA contacts by photocrosslinking and mass spectrometry.
TLDR
A novel strategy to localize crosslinked amino acid residues that combines laser-induced photocrosslinking, proteolytic digestion, Fe3+-IMAC (immobilized metal affinity chromatography) purification of peptide-oligodeoxynucleotide heteroconjugates and hydrolysis of oligode oxynucleotides by hydrogen fluoride (HF).
Mass spectrometric analysis of a UV‐cross‐linked protein–DNA complex: Tryptophans 54 and 88 of E. coli SSB cross‐link to DNA
TLDR
This study demonstrates the performance of four different MS‐based strategies to characterize E. coli single‐stranded DNA binding protein (SSB) that was UV‐cross‐linked to a 5‐iodouracil containing DNA oligomer and less than 100 pmole of SSB protein was required for detailed structural analysis by mass spectrometry.
A multidimensional electrospray MS-based approach to phosphopeptide mapping.
TLDR
A new, multidimensional electrospray MS-based strategy for phosphopeptide mapping is described which eliminates the need to radiolabel protein with 32P or 33P, and is particularly well suited to phosphoproteins that are phosphorylated to varying degrees of stoichiometry on multiple sites.
Mass spectrometry and EST-database searching allows characterization of the multi-protein spliceosome complex
TLDR
The machinery that removes introns from mRNA precursors — the spliceosome — is a large multi-protein complex that is already sufficiently complete to allow rapid characterization of large mammalian protein complexes via mass spectrometry, and this is the first characterization of an entire mammalian multi- protein complex using these methods.
Automated Identification and Quantification of Protein Phosphorylation Sites by LC/MS on a Hybrid Triple Quadrupole Linear Ion Trap Mass Spectrometer*
TLDR
Coupling of this methodology with a stable isotope N-terminal labeling strategy using iTRAQ™ reagents enabled phosphorylation mapping and relative protein phosphorylated levels to be determined between the active and inactive forms of the protein kinase MAPKAPK-1 in the same LC/MS run.
