Abstract

Differences in chromatin-associated proteins allow the same genome to participate in multiple cell types and to respond to an array of stimuli in any given cell. To understand the fundamental properties of chromatin and to reveal its cell- and/or stimulus-specific behaviors, quantitative proteomics is an essential technology. This chapter details the methods for fractionation and quantitative mass spectrometric analysis of chromatin from hearts or isolated adult myocytes, detailing some of the considerations for applications to understanding heart disease. The state-of-the-art methodology for data interpretation and integration through bioinformatics is reviewed.
