Dionex Demonstrates a Reliable Automated Solution for Phosphopeptide-Enrichment Applications
Dionex is proud to announce a new method to selectively isolate and enrich phosphopeptides from a peptide digest. Application Update 173: Enrichment and Identification of Chicken Ovalbumin Phosphopeptides by Immobilized Metaldemonstrates use of immobilized metal affinity chromatography (IMAC) in the ferric Affinity and Reversed-Phase Chromatographies form and exploits the affinity of the phosphopeptide phosphate group to ferric ions immobilized on the ProPac® IMAC-10 stationary phase of a Dionex UltiMate® 3000 high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) system.
Characterizing the phosphoproteome is key to understanding cellular degeneration associated with certain types of cancer. Although a variety of methods are currently used to separate phosphorylated from unphosphorylated species, the overlap between methods is poor, suggesting that each approach isolates a different subset of the phosphoproteome. This update demonstrates optimization of IMAC elution conditions for ovalbumin phosphopeptides, thus providing a reliable and easy-to-use solution for routine phosphopeptide- enrichments applications. This method also may be used to characterize phosphoproteins.
