Higher accuracy for oxidation profiles

Earlier this year, Reest et al. described a quantitation workflow based on light and heavy iodoacetamide labels, which they named SICyLIA [1]. The workflow was used for analysing cysteine oxidation levels between wild-type and redox-stressed mouse cells. At its core, SICyLIA is a precursor protocol with two components, light and heavy, where the labels are simply light and heavy carbamidomethyl on [...]

Step away from the iodoacetamide

In our July newsletter, we featured a paper from Torsten Müller and Dominic Winter, University of Bonn, concerning alkylation artefacts. Some of their findings were quite shocking. For example, differences of more than 9 fold in numbers of identified methionine-containing peptides for in-gel digested samples between iodine- and non-iodine-containing alkylation reagents. This is important because a glance at the literature [...]
