Sequence the PCR product using the primer ORF_C to ensure that no mutations in the sequence of the tag occurred and that the tag is fused in-frame with the target gene (see Note 30). 8. If appropriate assays are available, test for the functionality of the fusion protein (see Note 31). 2 Characterization of Membrane Protein Complexes by SILAC AP-MS In this part of the chapter, we describe a generic protocol for a comprehensive and most accurate characterization of membrane protein complexes.

However, depending on the experimental requirements and the properties of the POI, other detergents may be better suited for the purification. Therefore, it is recommended to test different detergents and to determine the concentration yielding best results before initiating a SILAC AP-MS study. It is also recommended to test the compatibility of the detergent selected with the entire protocol (TEV protease and in-solution trypsin digest; LC/MS analysis). 14. Protease inhibitors may inhibit TEV protease as well as tryptic protein digest.

3 Importance of accurate mixing of differentially labeled SILAC samples. (a) Scatterplot of peptide ratios versus intensities illustrates an example of accurate 1:1 mixing of heavy to light amino acids. (b) Scatterplot of peptide ratios versus intensities illustrates a poor example of heavy to light amino acid mixing with an approximately fourfold higher level of heavy compared to light amino acid; while relatively small mixing errors (<30 %) are routinely dealt with by processing software, extreme mixing errors will result in wrong quantitation values 5.
