Enrichment of Multiphosphorylated Peptides by Immobilized Metal Affinity Chromatography Using Ga(III)- and Fe(III)-Complexes
Abstract:The detection and identification of O-phosphorylation sites in proteins with mass spectrometry remains a challenge. A common approach to analyse these modifications is to enrich phosphopeptides by immobilized metal affinity chromatography (IMAC) prior to mass spectrometric analysis. In this study two commercially available IMAC kits based on Fe(III)-ions immobilized on magnetic beads and Ga(III)-ions immobilized on a chelate-resin, have been investigated and the binding efficiency of peptide mixtures containing non-phosphorylated, singly, doubly and triply phosphorylated peptides have been tested.

More about this publication?
- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
