Exploring the potential of public proteomics data

PMCID: 4738454
PMID: 26449181
DOI: 10.1002/pmic.201500295

[…] it easier for submitters to provide additional information, or to annotate this information automatically in the standard file formats. This work has already started, notable in LIMS systems such as MASPECTRAS , ms_lims , and Proteios , but it will still take some time before it is straightforward to capture all the desired information.A related challenge is the provision of easy access to public […]


ATGL and CGI 58 are lipid droplet proteins of the hepatic stellate cell line HSC T6[S]

[…] tinct peptides with minimum sequence coverage of 20% and probability score of >95% according to Carr et al. (). Peptide validation and protein clustering were performed with the open access software, MASPECTRAS 2 (). For peptide filtering, a threshold of 7.5 was used as peptide score and 75% as scored peak intensity score, respectively. Proteins were accepted as identified when at least two peptid […]


Proteomic analysis of the Plasmodium male gamete reveals the key role for glycolysis in flagellar motility

Malar J
PMCID: 4150949
PMID: 25124718
DOI: 10.1186/1475-2875-13-315

[…] was performed using an unsupervised machine-learning strategy which estimates peptide identification FDR from reversed decoy searches []. The search results were analysed for result interpretation in MASPECTRAS 2.0 [] with 1% spectra FDR and 1% peptide FDR, a minimum of two peptides for a protein, and at least five amino acids for a peptide. The identified proteins from three different biological […]


Sex partitioning of the Plasmodium falciparum Stage V Gametocyte Proteome Provides Insight into falciparum specific Cell Biology*

PMCID: 4188997
PMID: 25056935
DOI: 10.1074/mcp.M114.040956

[…] C for the strategy). However, given the number of iterations of the P. berghei genome since 2005, as well as further refinement of MS search engines capabilities, we first performed a PepArML-Search MASPECTRAS2 Analysis (PSMA) of the original peptide spectral data from that study, to allow for appropriate and updated comparisons of protein identities (, ).Our re-analysis resulted in updated P. be […]


Open source libraries and frameworks for mass spectrometry based proteomics: A developer's perspective☆

Biochim Biophys Acta
PMCID: 3898926
PMID: 23467006
DOI: 10.1016/j.bbapap.2013.02.032

[…] oteoWizard and the Java Proteomic Library (JPL) . Other well-known libraries/frameworks with a more specialized scope include InsilicoSpectro , multiplierz , mMass , mzMine , msInspect , MSQuant and MASPECTRAS . The aims and functionalities of each framework and library are explored in detail in the following sections. […]


Heterochromatic Gene Silencing by Activator Interference and a Transcription Elongation Barrier*

PMCID: 3789973
PMID: 23940036
DOI: 10.1074/jbc.M113.460071

[…] The effectiveness of the quantitative comparative mass spectrometry analysis system to study changes to chromatin interactions was evident using the presence of activator on chromatin as a positive control (supplemental data set S2). We next wished t […]
