Abstract
There is increasing evidence that proteins function in the cell as integrated stable or temporally formed protein complexes, interactomes. Previously, using model systems we demonstrated applicability of direct molecular fishing on paramagnetic particles for protein interactomics (Ershov et al. Proteomics, 2012, 12, 3295). In the present study, we have used a combination of affinity-based molecular fishing and subsequent MS for investigation of human liver proteins involved in interactions with immobilized microsomal cytochrome b5 (CYB5A), and also transthyretin and BSA as alternative affinity ligands (baits). The LC-MS/MS identification of prey proteins fished on these baits revealed three sets of proteins: 98, 120, and 220, respectively. Comparison analysis of these sets revealed only three proteins common for all the baits. In the case of paired analysis, the number of common proteins varied from 2 to 9. The binding capacity of some identified proteins has been validated by a SPR-based biosensor. All the investigated proteins effectively interacted with the immobilized CYB5A (Kd values ranged from 0.07 to 1.1 muM). Results of this study suggest that direct molecular fishing is applicable for analysis of protein-protein interactions (PPI) under normal and pathological conditions, in which altered PPIs are especially important.
