Maximizing Quantitative Phosphoproteomics of Kinase Signaling Expands the Mec1 and Tel1 Networks

Global phosphoproteome analysis is crucial for comprehensive and unbiased investigation of kinase-mediated signaling. However, since each phosphopeptide represents a unique entity for defining identity, site-localization, and quantitative changes, phosphoproteomics often suffers from lack of redundancy and statistical power for generating high confidence datasets. Here we developed a phosphoproteomic approach in which data consistency among experiments using reciprocal stable isotope labeling defines a central filtering rule for achieving reliability in phosphopeptide identification and quantitation. We find that most experimental error or biological variation in phosphopeptide quantitation does not revert in quantitation once light and heavy media are swapped between two experimental conditions. Exclusion of non-reverting data-points from the dataset not only reduces quantitation error and variation, but also reduces false positive identifications based on reversed decoy hits to virtually zero. Application of our approach in combination with extensive fractionation of phosphopeptides by HILIC identifies new substrates of the Mec1 and Tel1 kinases, expanding our understanding of the DNA damage signaling network regulated by the...Continue Reading

BioRxiv & MedRxiv Preprints

BioRxiv and MedRxiv are the preprint servers for biology and health sciences respectively, operated by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. Here are the latest preprint articles (which are not peer-reviewed) from BioRxiv and MedRxiv.

Cell Migration

Cell migration is involved in a variety of physiological and pathological processes such as embryonic development, cancer metastasis, blood vessel formation and remoulding, tissue regeneration, immune surveillance and inflammation. Here is the latest research.
