  • 2. Electrophoretic separation of proteins by charge (isoelectricfocusing) and by size (SDS-PAGE)2D-gel electrophoresis & mass spectrometry 3. Peptide fragmentation of individual protein (with proteases eg trypsin)1. Isolate proteins from tissue (organism, condition) of interestFig. 6.10see Fig. 6.11PROTEOMICS: LARGE-SCALE PROTEIN IDENTIFICATION & ANALYSIS

  • 4. Determine precise peptide mass by MALDI-TOF (matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time of flight) mass spectrometry5. Compare aa sequences to genomic data to correlateprotein with its gene Fig. 6.12

  • STRUCTURAL PROTEOMICS- large-scale determination of protein structuresStart with gene of interest cloning, expression, purification of protein- crystallize protein & X-ray diffraction analysisNMR spectroscopy - for small proteins or domains (in solution)Protein data bank: www.rcsb.org/pdb/X-ray crystallographyNov 2000 = 13,750 structuresNov 2001 = 16,550Nov 2006 = 40,132Nov 2008 = 54,559Nov 2009 = 61,418Nov 2011 = 76,814

  • How similar are hemoglobin a-chain and b-chain?hemoglobin tetramerAnalysis of protein sequences and structures

  • Identification of - protein motifs, catalytic centres- binding to ligands, drugs- interaction with other macromolecules- relatedness to other proteins (homology modelling)clues from protein sequence/structure about biological functionExPASy (Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics) www.expasy.org/EMBL-EBI (European Bioinformatics Institute) www.ebi.ac.uk/Tools/ppsearch/For example: www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/structure

  • How to find proteins that interact with protein of interest? 1. Phage display- generate phage library producing collection of fusion proteins between phage coat protein & test protein from genome of interest- hybrid protein will be displayed on outer surface of phageFig. 6.14- then screen library to find ones having expressed protein which interacts with test protein of interest

  • mRNAgeneTranscription factors have 2 domains DNA binding domainActivator domainRegulatory cis-element2. Yeast 2-hybrid systemIf TF domains physically separated, no transcriptionBackground info about transcription in eukaryotesBut if bait & prey interact to bring TF domains close together, then transcription occursmRNA

  • Determining protein-protein interactions using yeast 2-hybrid system- use separate vectors to prepare [1] bait fused to DNA binding domain of a yeast transcription factor- fuse (1) to gene for protein X = bait Fig. 6.15 [2] shotgun library of possible prey fused to activation domain of yeast TFprey generate library where (2) is fused to random coding sequences from organism of interest (eg. human)

  • - co-transform yeast cells (which lack this transcription factor TF)if protein X and prey (from library) interact, the 2 domains of yeast TF will be close together (& functional), so activate reporter geneFig. 6.15eg if use lacZ reporter gene blue colour of yeast colony

  • If bait protein does not interact directly with protein(s) in a complex, they may not be isolatedFig.6.18Fig.6.173. Affinity column chromatographyor use co-immunoprecipitation- protein B (bait) attached on column to fish out the protein (or proteins) which specifically bind to it(p.182)

  • If 2 genes are functionally-related, expect them to be co-inherited and may be physically close in genome (as well as co-inherited) Gene fusion/fission (2 short genes in some organisms vs. one long gene in others) 10 different organismsHarrington FEBS Lett. 582:1251, 20084. Computational approaches to predict protein-protein interactionsDo genes 1 and 2 (orange & green) pass this test? - premise that composite (naturally-fused) proteins have direct physical interaction (or functional association)

  • 3. Bioinformatics approach to predict protein-protein interactions- search for one large gene in organism X vs. two separate smaller genes in YFig.6.19in yeastin E.colihis2his10 HIS2 Search of complete genomes of E.coli, Haemophilus, Methanococcus & yeast- found 215 cases of fused vs. split stateEnright et al.
