Selected reaction monitoring for the quantification of Escherichia coli ribosomal proteins.

ABSTRACT: Ribosomes are the sophisticated machinery that is responsible for protein synthesis in a cell. Recently, quantitative mass spectrometry (qMS) have been successfully applied for understanding the dynamics of protein complexes. Here, we developed a highly specific and reproducible method to quantify all ribosomal proteins (r-proteins) by combining selected reaction monitoring (SRM) and isotope labeling. We optimized the SRM methods using purified ribosomes and Escherichia coli lysates and verified this approach as detecting 41 of the 54 r-proteins separately synthesized in E. coli S30 extracts. The SRM methods will enable us to utilize qMS as a highly specific analytical tool in the research of E. coli ribosomes, and this methodology have potential to accelerate the understanding of ribosome biogenesis, function, and the development of engineered ribosomes with additional functions.
