Abstract

We describe a method to identify cross-linked peptides from complex samples and large protein sequence databases by combining isotopically tagged cross-linkers, chromatographic enrichment, targeted proteomics and a new search engine called xQuest. This software reduces the search space by an upstream candidate-peptide search before the recombination step. We showed that xQuest can identify cross-linked peptides from a total Escherichia coli lysate with an unrestricted database search.
