Abstract

Detection of phosphorylated proteins as well as assignment of the phosphorylated sites in such proteins is a major challenge in proteomics. In the present study we evaluate the use of enzymatic de-phosphorylation in combination with differential peptide mass mapping for identification of phosphorylated peptides in peptide mixtures derived from in-gel digested phospho-proteins. Phospho-peptides could be identified provided that improved sample preparation methods prior to mass spectrometric analysis were used. An attempt to identify the proteins visualized by [32P] autoradiography in a proteomics study and their phosphorylation sites, demonstrated that protein identification was possible whereas reliable identification of the phospho-peptides requires more protein than normally available in our proteomics studies.
