[…] were searched using omssa with precursor mass tolerance settings of +/- 20 ppm, product ions mass tolerance of +/- 1.5 da, and fragment settings of +/- 0.5 da []. xml output files were parsed using masssieve (nih). a minimum peptide length of 6 amino acids was used for protein matches. proteins were required to have 2 or more unique peptides with e-value scores of 0.01 or less. relative […]

[…] cluster compute instances using the proteome cluster interface (, in the public domain). xml output files were parsed and nonredundant protein sets determined using masssieve (, in the public domain). proteins were required to have two or more unique peptides across the analyzed samples with e value scores […]

PMCID: 4169610
PMID: 25317274
DOI: 10.3402/jev.v3.24858

[…] peptides with ion scores below their identity scores were rejected. mass sieve was used to calculate percentage coverage for each protein identification ( peptide identifications from 1 representative experiment are shown., exosomes were prepared from pre-purified cm derived from non-apoptotic rab27b-expressing mcf-7 cells using 4 methods: […]

[…] a statistically significant peptide-spectrum match (psm) score. finally, identified peptides are transformed into a list of identified proteins through protein assembly tools such as idpicker, masssieve, or proteinprophet, among others., although this strategy has been successful, there are several critical challenges that cannot be fully addressed by simply improving database searching […]
