Relative Protein Quantitative Service, MS Based

    Relative quantification of proteins is a MS-based technique that compares the relative proteins expression levels between different samples, analyzing differential protein expression under different conditions and revealing the role of proteins in biological processes. Commonly used methods include stable isotope labeling by amino acids in cell culture (SILAC), isobaric tags for relative and absolute quantification (iTRAQ), and tandem mass tags (TMT). They achieve relative quantification by enzymatic digestion, isotopic labeling, separation, and mass spectrometric analysis.


    MtoZ Biolabs offers protein relative quantification services based on Thermo Fisher's Orbitrap Exploris 240 mass spectrometry platform combined with nanoLC-MS/MS nanoscale chromatography, using multiple relative quantification techniques such as isotopic labeling (e.g., SILAC, TMT, iTRAQ) and label-free methods (e.g., SWATH-MS, DDA). We precisely compare protein expression levels across different experimental conditions or biological samples, identify protein-level changes, and help clients rapidly and accurately assess differences in protein expression levels to reveal the molecular mechanisms of biological processes, disease onset, and drug therapy.
