Protocols

Prococol A: Digestion of Proteins in Solution

Trypsin (SERVA cat. no. 37283, 37284, 37284)

  • Lyophilized Trypsin is reconstituted in 50 mM acetic acid to a final concentration of 1 µg/µl.
  • For digestion of the target protein, add Trypsin to a final protease:protein ratio of 1:100 to 1:20 (w/w).

Endproteinase Glu-C (SERVA cat. no. 20986)

  • Digestion Buffer: 100 mM NH4HCO3, pH 7.8 (optional: 100 mM Tris/HCl, pH 7.8)
  • Reconstitute the lyophilized enzyme in deionized water to make a 100 ng/μl solution.
  • Prepare a 5 ng/μl enzyme in Digestion Buffer solution by combining 5 μl of the 100 ng/μl enzyme solution with 95 μl Digestion Buffer.
  • The specific volumes and concentration can be adjusted for sample numbers and/or quantity of protein in the sample.
  • A final enzyme to protein ratio of 1:20 to 1:100 is recommended.

Prococol B: In-gel Protein Digestion

Trypsin (SERVA cat. no. 37283, 37284, 37284)

  • Lyophilized Trypsin is reconstituted in 50 mM acetic acid to a final concentration of 1 µg/µl.
  • Add 25 mM NH4HCO3, pH 8 to get a final Trypsin concentration of 50 µg/ml.
    For example: 25 µl Trypsin solution (1 µg/µl) + 475 µl NH4HCO3, pH 8 (25 µg Trypsin/500 µl =
    50 µg Trypsin/ml)
  • For the final use dilute the Trypsin solution 1:2.5 with 25 mM NH4HCO3, pH 8 and use 10 – 20 µl
    for rehydration/digestion of each gel piece.

Endproteinase Glu-C (SERVA cat. no. 20986)

  • Digestion Buffer: 100 mM NH4HCO3, pH 7.8 (optional: 100 mM Tris/HCl, pH 7.8)
  • Combine 10 μl of the 100 ng/μl reconstituted enzyme with 90 μl of Digestion Buffer to achieve a final concentration of 10.0 ng/μl. Place on ice until ready to use.
  • Add 50 μL of the 10 ng/μl enzyme solution to the dried gel pieces and incubate on ice for 45 min.
  • Remove the 10 ng/μl enzyme solution from the gel pieces with a micro pipettor and replace with 50 μl of digestion buffer.
  • Incubate overnight at 37 °C.

Peptide Extraction (Recommended to avoid clogging of the LC system)

  • Clear solution of the In-Gel digest by centrifugation and transfer the supernatant into a new vial
  • Alternatve method: Extraction of the peptides, e.g. with acetic acid and actonitrile

New Application Note:
ICPL™ - Coupled Immunoprecipitation
(ICPL-IP)

ImmunoPrecipitation (IP) is widely used as a method to selectively isolate protein complexes from primary tissues. However, due to lack of specificity and selectivity of most antibodies and unspecific binding of the carrier beads, the method can produce false positives. The ICPL approach, employing stable isotope labelling and mass spectrometry, can discriminate true positive from false positive IP complexes.
