Mass spectrometry (MS) based bottom-up proteomics is built upon large scale identification of peptides, and depends on proteins being efficiently converted to peptides by a protease of known specificity. The most common preparation methods are digestion in solution (ISD) or digestion of Proteins separated on an SDS PAGE gel, in-gel digestion (IGD). Both methods consist of a lengthy sequence of washing and chemical modification steps. To increase throughput and reproducibility, automation of these processes is highly desired. Contrary to other „omic“-applications, proteomics analysis by LC-MS/MS remains time-intensive, making the measurement the ratedetermining step in the pipeline. Thus the preparation of samples does not require a high-but rather a medium-throughput setup.
The normal benchtop methods for the IGD and the ISD were adapted to make automation in a robotic setup possible. In addition, we modified a standard PAL robot setup with a vacuum chamber that can be controlled by the robot's software and facilitates the removal of large volumes of washing solvents required by IGD leading to enhanced sensitivity.
C1 Complement mediates human cord blood serum derived APP α-secretase cleavage activity in vitroPoster
Our results indicate that CBS contains proteins that promote α-secretase like enzymatic activity. LC-MS/MS analysis in CBSF and AgBSF revealed the presence of 142 proteins of which C1 subunits and alpha-2-macroglobulin showed significantly greater levels in αCBSF compared with αAgBSF. further study showed,C1 subunits can enhance sAPPα production and Aβ reduction in cell culture conditionREAD MORE
