Quantitative Phosphoproteomics: Don't Try Saying This at Home

Matthias Mann and colleagues at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry have published an open access paper in PNAS this week in which they defined the tyrosine-phosphoproteome of the insulin signaling pathway. They used a combination of high res mass spec and phosphotyrosine immunoprecipitation and stable isotope labeling by amino acids in cell culture (SILAC) to conduct their "quantitative phosphoproteomic" work, finding seven previously unidentified proteins involved, as well as that the pathway is connected to calcium signaling.
