PMCID: 5847575
PMID: 29531254
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-22610-4

[…] searched with x! tandem and comet against the annotated yeast proteins database with included reversed decoy peptides. search results were scored using peptideprophet and combined with iprophet. mayu was used to estimate iprophet probabilities to control for protein identification false discovery rate (fdr <1%). the final spectral library was assembled using spectrast by retaining spectra […]

[…] modification. precursor and fragment mass tolerance were set to 20 ppm and 0.5 da, respectively, and 2 missed cleavages were allowed. false discovery rates at psm level and protein level using mayu [] were calculated, and protein identifications were obtained by applying the criteria of psm fdr < 1% and protein fdr < 1%. protein inference was performed using the panalyzer algorithm […]

PMID: 29385206
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0192051

[…] a minimum protein probability of 0.9 was set to match a false discovery rate (fdr) of <1%. the resulting pep.xml and prot.xml files were used as input for the spectral counting software tool mayu []., fluorescence microscopy was used to visualize the c. acnes-induced platelet aggregates. c. acnes was added to prp as previously described. for c. acnes labeling dapi and oregon green […]

[…] mass spectrometric query parameters for 10,000 human proteins as prior information. we were able to reproducibly quantify 4056 unique proteins (swissprot identities, protein fdr = 0.01 controlled by mayu) across all samples. furthermore, we spiked heavy stable isotope-labeled peptide standards for 20 “anchor proteins” into the t1ds and t2n samples. this approach estimates the absolute abundances […]

[…] but also on the peptide- and protein-levels. this can be achieved, for example, by adapting a target-decoy approach as initially implemented for protein-level spectrum-centric analyses in mayu or recently in swath2stats. another option is the application of non-parametric modeling strategies for computing posterior probabilities at the peptide- and protein-level, as have been adapted […]
