Complex biological samples hold significant information on the health status and on development of disease. Approximately 35,000 human genes give rise to more than 1,000,000 functional entities at the protein level. Thus, the proteome provides a much richer source of information than the genome for describing the state of health or disease of humans. The composition body fluids comprise a rich source of information on changes of protein and peptide expression. Here we describe the application of capillary electrophoresis (CE) coupled online to an electrospray-ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometer (ESI-TOF-MS) to analyze human urine for the identification of biomarkers specific for complications after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). Sequencing of native proteins/peptides is necessary for the identification of possible new therapeutic targets.
