We have identified tyrosine-phosphorylated proteins on membrane from A-431 human epidermoid carcinoma cells by using detection with anti-phosphotyrosine antibody followed by PMF analysis. In there, on-membrane digestion for these protein spots was carried out on microscale region using chemical inkjet technology and the resulting tryptic digests were directly analyzed by MALDI-TOF MS. Proteins identified by a database search included phosphoproteins that are known to be markedly phosphorylated on tyrosine sites after the cells are treated with epidermal growth factor (EGF). This procedure is a rapid and easily handled approach that enables both detection and identification of phosphoproteins on a single blot membrane.
