4D-Methylation Proteomics Services

Protein methylation is a universal modification that participates in various processes, such as gene expression regulation and interaction. Protein methylation is activated by the enzymatic transfer of methyl to an amino acid residue, usually on arginine and lysine, sometimes histidine, cysteine, asparagine, etc. Statistically, up to three methyl groups can be attached simultaneously, with a corresponding increase in molecular weight of 14.02 Da/28.03 Da/42.05 Da for mono/bi/tri-methylation. Mass spectrometry can precisely determine the molecular weight changes and identify the methylation-modified peptides and sites.

Based on the heterogeneity and low relative abundance of post-translational protein modifications, the accurate quantification of PTMs confronts various challenges. On the one hand, the low abundance of post-translational modifications requires more advanced sensitivity and identification accuracy. On the other hand, different modification sites occur within the peptide resulting in tautomeric modified peptides, and limiting the traditional mass spectrometry platform to perform separation for these co-eluted tautomeric peptides.

The introduction of ion trickle separation concept has brought proteomics into a new 4D era. The novel generation of 4D proteomics technology adds a fourth dimension, ion mobility, to traditional proteomics and significantly improves analytical performance.

Our 4D-Methylation proteomics Services

Creative proteomics' 4D-label free methylation proteomics is based on the new generation timsTOF Pro mass spectrometer for methylation differential proteomics analysis. We provide "one-stop" proteomics services, from a large-scale screening of PTMs proteomics, PRM validation of targeted proteomics/PTMs omics, to high-quality antibody-assisted validation and subsequent molecular mechanism studies.
