Rapid labelling and covalent inhibition of intracellular native proteins using ligand directed N acyl N alkyl sulfonamide

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5951806
PMID: 29760386
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-04343-0

[…] intensity precursor ions. Multiple charged peptides were chosen for MS/MS experiments due to their good fragmentation characteristics. MS/MS spectra were interpreted, and peak lists were generated by Proteome Discoverer (Thermo Fisher Scientific). Searches were performed using the SEQUEST HT (Thermo Fisher Scientific) against the latest uniprot database for whole Human proteome (Homo sapi […]


Additional oxidative stress reroutes the global response of Aspergillus fumigatus to iron depletion

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5946477
PMID: 29747589
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-018-4730-x

[…] Thermo raw files were processed by Proteome Discoverer 1.4 (Thermo). MS/MS spectra were searched against the AspGD protein database of A. fumigatus Af293 ( […]


Identification of a unique Radical SAM methyltransferase required for the sp3 C methylation of an arginine residue of methyl coenzyme M reductase

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5943407
PMID: 29743535
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-25716-x

[…] For quantification, the precursor ion areas in a node-based processing and consensus workflow in Proteome Discoverer (Thermo) were used. For this, cells of M. acetivorans WWM1 and Mko4551 grown with 100 mM MeOH at 37 °C were taken from the exponential and stationary growth phases, harve […]


Mutational disruption of the ABCC2 gene in fall armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda, confers resistance to the Cry1Fa and Cry1A.105 insecticidal proteins

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5940765
PMID: 29740041
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-25491-9

[…] t as 1 × 105. For each sample, the injection volume was adjusted per the protein assay to load 1 µg on column. Three technical replicates were applied with each sample.Proteins were identified by the Proteome Discoverer (version 1.4; Thermo Fisher Scientific, Waltham, MA, USA). The S. frugiperda protein database (1,786 sequences) from uniport was combined with a S. frugiperda ABCC2 (SfABCC2) prote […]


Proteome wide analysis of Anopheles culicifacies mosquito midgut: new insights into the mechanism of refractoriness

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5941458
PMID: 29739330
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-018-4729-3

[…] LC/MS/MS derived data were searched and analyzed using Proteome Discoverer 1.4 (Thermo Scientific). The acquired MS/MS data were searched against UniProt mosquito database, a well curated database using SEQUEST algorithm. Search parameters used: trypsin e […]


Cigarette smoke and chewing tobacco alter expression of different sets of miRNAs in oral keratinocytes
