Address 8: Mass Spectrometry, Applications Last week we perceived how we do Mass Spectrometry, now we will see why we do mass spectrometry Mass Spec is a strategy which, when you take a blend of stuff, almost everything in that blend will give you an autonomous sign . Mass Spec is exceedingly specific . Dissimilar to essentially every other strategy that we discussed, it doesn\'t give you the normal condition of your answer analyte. Mass Spec can be exceedingly delicate . It is perfect for measuring low conc. analytes Mass Spec can be simple ! Both from a hypothetical viewpoint and an operational one.

What Can We Use MS For? Here are a few applications for Mass Spectrometry: - Drug testing/Pharmacokinetics - Antiterror/Security (e.g. bomb atom ‘sniffers’) - Environmental Analysis (e.g. water quality testing) - Quality Control (nourishment, pharmaceuticals) - Medical Testing (different blood diseases and… growth?) - Validation of craftsmanship/History/Anthropology and so on - Validation amid substance blend We are going to concentrate on: Biochemical exploration (proteomics, interact…omics) Biochemical energy and systems Tissue imaging (with MALDI)

Mass Spectrometry: Application Terms Sensitivity : Simply the most reduced analyte fixation at which you can get a significant sign to clamor proportion . The cutoff for ‘real’ signs should be S/N≥10 , yet heaps of individuals construct their outcomes in light of not as much as that! Determination : Usually characterized as the deliberate mass m separated by the top\'s width m at a large portion of the most extreme crest hight (Full Width Half Maximum, FWHM) m I  m/z

Slide 4

Mass Spectrometry: World Records! Just with the goal that we comprehend the force of this technique… Sensitivity : We realize that FT-ICR can recognize a solitary caught particle, yet we need to get it there ! The present record for affectability is… ~10 zeptomol (10 - 20 M, around 6,000 particles)! Utilized ESI/FT-ICR M. E. Belov, E. N. Nikolaev, G. A. Anderson, H. R. Udesth, T. P. Conrads, T. D. Veenstra, C. D. Masselon, M. V. Gorshkov and R. D. Smith, Anal. Chem. , 2001, 73 , 253–261

Slide 5

Mass Spectrometry: World Records! Mass Accuracy : No genuine record. Emphatically relies on upon m/z. For proteins, the most noteworthy reported mass exactness speaks the truth 1 ppm:

Slide 6

Mass Spectrometry: World Records! Greatest m/z : In 2000, CV Robinson et al. alright in place, ~ 2.5 MDa viral capsid through their Q-TOF instrument They quantified 2,484,700 Da. Genuine mass: 2,471,130 Da. Slip = 13570 Da…or .5% Mass Spectrometry-ish mass assessments of ‘live’ infections (up to ~42 MDa ) have been made by Bothner, Siuzdak et al . J. Am. Chem. Soc. 2000, 122, 3550-3551

Slide 7

Mass Spectrometry: World Records! Determination : This is the one you’ve all been holding up for… In 2001, Allan Marshall’s gathering measured the distinction in mass between the peptides: RVMRGMR and RSHRGHR They dealt with a determination of 3,300,000 … And effectively dealt with the mass contrast of .00045 Da … which is not exactly the mass of an electron ! (.00055 Da) Anal. Chem. 2001, 73, 647-650

Slide 8

Applications: Proteomics OK so we’ve sequenced the genome. This gives us vital data about illness involved mutants, human hereditary assorted qualities and so on ., but… Which areas of the DNA are ‘coding regions’? What proteins result from the coding locales (after mRNA grafting, preparing and so on .)? At the point when are the proteins delivered? In what amounts? For a moderately brief period in the mid 90’s, we had a wide range of methods for sequencing DNA, however no great method for making sense of in the event that we were taking a gander at garbage or qualities . Mass Spectrometry to the Rescue!!!

Slide 9

Applications: Proteomics Remember, mass spec is great at isolating blends so we can simply take our cell lysates, hurl them into a FT-ICR and get the greater part of the masses of the considerable number of proteins in that. Right ?? NO!

Slide 10

Proteomics Not generally. Here are the issues: The range will be incredibly confused with a great many proteins every having various charge states. Indeed, even by FT-ICR, this won’t fly. You have no premise for distinguishing new proteins . Keeping in mind the end goal to recognize a protein along these lines, you need to have former learning of it’s succession . This could be known as a definitive ‘ top down ’ approach. It won’t work straight up, yet there are approaches to manage the above hurdles…

Slide 11

Proteomics and Pre-detachment The first thing we may need to do is to pre-separate our cell lysate: Top-down . Distinguish protein by it’s definite mass or careful masses of MS/MS parts . Peptides Protein Protease Now we have a test tube loaded with peptides from a solitary protein… what might we do??

Slide 12

Proteomics and LC-MS as it were, we’ve now made our basic (single protein) test very perplexing. There are numerous peptides each most likely having various charge states… So we can pre-isolate once more! This time we utilize Reverse Phase High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) Reverse Phase Column I time

Slide 13

Proteomics and LC-MS Under every one of our LC-MS Intensity versus time tops, there ought to be a solitary peptide for us to break down. I m/z m/z m/z We can now either take the peptides we have and attempt to make sense of what the protein is by coordinating our masses up to a database of protein groupings . Coordinating protein Found!!!

Slide 14

Sequencing New Proteins But imagine a scenario in which none of the peptides we watch are not a piece of a known protein arrangement. Imagine a scenario in which we can’t measure the masses of huge peptides precisely enough to make certain. We can succession peptides by MS/MS!! When we beat down a peptide in the routine way, it tends to break at the peptide bond, framing y and b particles: y b

Slide 15

MS/MS of Peptides for Sequencing Where the peptide bond breaks is very irregular (in spite of the fact that there are some solid inclinations for certain a.a. sets) So our MS/MS range will really comprise of numerous y and b particles comparing to breaks at diverse areas. Our range is presently comprised of much littler units which are much simpler to recognize .

Slide 16

Proteomics: Bringing it Together So now we have a strategy by which we can take cell lysates and turn out with a thought of the protein supplement of the phone, regardless of the possibility that we have no earlier information of a proteins\' percentage! Note that we’ve isolated our specimen a group of times… this is bad for test maintenance. Furthermore, given the low duplicate number of a few proteins in the cell, we might not have had much in the first place. Likely the most genuine test in proteomics is affectability . We could evade a ton of test misfortune if we could utilize a ‘top down’ approach, that is to distinguish proteins by their definite masses as opposed to the masses of their peptides. Note additionally that we’ve just spoke so far about distinguishing proteins. In the event that we need to, say have the capacity to screen for disease, we’d better have the capacity to measure the proteins we distinguish.

Slide 17

Proteomics and Quantitative MS Mass Spectrometry is terrible at giving quantitative information. In some cases slight substance dissimilarities can prompt extraordinary contrasts in ionization productivity . The arrangement is to utilize isotopic models . Along these lines, we can recognize two analytes that are artificially the same . This methodology has been actualized in proteomics with the Applied Biosystems iTRAQ framework . Note that here you measure the label\'s plenitude .

Slide 18

Proteomics and Protein Modification Many, numerous proteins experience posttranslational adjustments Since these alterations change the mass, this will tend to make our information, particularly top down information, a great deal more hard to investigate. Some posttransltional alterations of note include: acetylation, alkylation, amidation, biotinylation, hydroxylation, formylation, oxidation,phosphorylation

Slide 19

Posttranslational Modifications: Good News On the other hand, these posttranlstional changes are naturally applicable and we can distinguish them by MS. Thusly, there are proteomics individuals who represent considerable authority in recognizing PTMs, particularly phosphorylation.

Slide 20

Proteomics Example Here’s a sample of a ‘top down’ study utilizing LC and FT-ICR Lysate from S. cerevisiae Used N 14 (anaerobic) and N 15 (oxygen consuming) to recognize differential expression Anal. Chem. 2007, 79, 7984-7991

Slide 21

Protein Folding and Conformational Dynamics So far we’ve examined a technique for recognizing proteins, even ones that are obscure, however MS can likewise assist us with seeing how they do what they do . A direct question is to recognize the collapsing condition of a protein. Cytochrome c Hemoglobin Konermann et al . Kaltashov et al.

Slide 22

H/D Exchange (HDX) Apart from the charge state circulation, we can likewise examine protein exchanging so as to collapse and flow by MS deuterium onto the amide gatherings of the peptide spine. The trading of amide protons for deuterium happens on the millisecond timescale , which is the same timescale as huge movements in protein collapsing. Therefore we can have two constraining situations: Exchange is much quicker than the rate of shutting ( EX1 ) The ‘closing rate’ is much speedier than trade ( EX2 ) Intrinsic swapping scale ‘opening’ rate Observed rate of trade k operation/k cl .:tslid
