Phosphorylation is a common post-translational modification (PTM) of proteins in eukaryotes, which functions in various cell activities, including glycolysis, protein-protein interaction, protein degradation, enzyme inhibition, homeostasis, and so forth. Protein phosphorylation is a reversible process of attachment of a phosphoryl group to proteins catalyzed by enzymes, principally on serine, threonine or tyrosine residues. Approximately 30% of proteins subject to phosphorylation in eukaryotic cells are tightly associated with protein activity by changing conformation of phosphorylated proteins. Subsequently, conformational changes regulate the catalytic activity of phosphorylated proteins. Besides, the neighbor proteins containing, conserved domains can recognized and bind to phosphomotifs, can be recruited by phosphorylated proteins. Therefore, protein kinases and protein phosphatases have validated as drug targets.
Creative Proteomics provides a high-quality and high-sensitivity phosphorylation protein analysis to identify phosphorylation and phosphorylation sites by mass spectrometry. Our analysis service strictly follows relevant guidelines (ICH Q6B, PharmEu and USP<1047>).
We Can Provide but Not Limited to:
- Phosphorylation analysis
- Phosphorylation sites identification
- Phosphopeptide enrichment
- Protein-protein interaction analysis
Technology Platform of Phosphorylation Protein Analysis Service
Creative Proteomics provides efficient and precise phosphorylation protein analysis services through high efficiency mass spectrometry (MS), liquid chromatography systems, etc.
To analyze the phosphorylation, protein samples will be first digested into peptides by proteolytic enzyme. And the peptides are separated by reverse-phase high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). To have better yield, different approaches can be optionally employed to enrich phosphopeptides, such as immobilized metal affinity chromatography (IMAC), antibodies containing phosphorylated resides, or chemical tagging of phosphorylation sites. Then the phosphopeptides will be analyzed by Tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS).
