Protein Profiling Service

    Proteins serve as the primary functional components of cells. Investigating proteins allows for a deeper understanding of biological processes, disease onset, and drug mechanisms. Protein profiling analysis, also known as shotgun proteomics, systematically examines all protein expression, functions, and interactions within biological samples. The objective of protein profiling analysis is to identify as many proteins as possible within a sample. This is achieved by lysing, digesting, and separating protein samples, followed by detecting and identifying the separated peptide segments using high-resolution mass spectrometry. This process enables the determination of the proteins present in the sample. Protein profiling analysis permits the identification of all proteins within a sample, allowing for the simultaneous identification of hundreds to thousands of proteins.

     

    MtoZ Biolabs’ one-stop service for protein profiling analysis relies on ultra-high-resolution mass spectrometry technology, utilizing Thermo Fisher's Orbitrap Fusion Lumos mass spectrometry platform in conjunction with nanoLC-MS/MS chromatography. This approach comprehensively identifies a vast array of proteins within entire cells, tissues, or complex mixed samples.

     

    Analysis Workflow

    1. Sample Preparation

    Collection and extraction of proteins from biological samples, followed by concentration and desalting.

     

    2. Separation and Purification

    Separation of protein complex mixtures into individual or partially purified proteins.

     

    3. Enzymatic Digestion

    Proteins are cleaved into smaller peptide segments for mass spectrometry analysis.

     

    4. Peptide Separation

    Further separation of digested peptide segments via high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC).

     

    5. Mass Spectrometry Analysis

    Acquisition of mass-to-charge ratio (m/z) information for peptide segments through mass spectrometry.

     

    6. Data Processing and Identification

    Processing of data from mass spectrometry analysis, followed by protein sequence identification, quantification, and modification through database matching.

     

    7. Bioinformatics Analysis

    Functional annotation of proteins, pathway analysis, protein interaction networks, etc., to elucidate changes in biological processes.
