Several high-throughput statistical methods were evaluated for processing data generated by two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, including how to handle missing data, normalization, and statistical analysis of data obtained from 2-D gels. Quantile normalization combined with a nonparametric permutation test based on minimizing false discover rates gave the highest yield of proteins that changed with genotype and detected the anticipated 50% decrease in Mn-superoxide dismutase (MnSOD) protein levels in mitochondrial extracts obtained from MnSOD-deficient mice.
