DOI: 10.1016/j.cels.2017.11.002

[…] as a variable modification was added. a 0.01 iprophet-peptide fdr cutoff was used to control for false identifications. for each annotated spectra a false localization score was calculated using luciphor2 () and annotations with a false localization rate (flr) of lower than 0.01 are annotated as localized phosphopeptides (localized modification is depicted in protein name, see ). […]

[…] was smaller., we further used the results of the dia-umpire analysis to benchmark the site-localization component of ipf against established methods for spectrum-centric site-localization (, ). luciphor, is a recently developed algorithm for site localization. in addition to site-localization it also estimates the false localization rate (flr). using a version of ipf reduced to the second, […]

[…] the trans-proteomic pipeline (tpp) with the default option -opdaewt –drev –ppm., to perform semi-quantitation by spectral counting at individual phosphorylation sites, site localization algorithm luciphor was applied to the results with the following options: high mass accuracy option for model fitting; tpp peptideprophet probability 0.95 for feature learning in the positive set; ms2 […]

[…] of search engines, which can improve correct localization by as much as 25.7% compared to using mascot alone., using mass accuracy and peak intensities, nesvizhskii and co-workers introduced luciphor to improve site localization and false localization rate (flr) estimation. this tool estimates flr based on a target-decoy framework, in which artificial phosphorylation is used to generate […]

[…] in different regions is different across each spectrum, and developed phosphors, which extends the a-score method by taking this into account ., more recently, nesvizhskii and colleagues developed luciphor, which uses mass accuracy (m/z) and peak intensities for phosphosite localization scoring . luciphor is based on the principle that the distribution of peak intensity and m/z for random […]
