|Title:||A new label-free approach for the determination of reaction rates in oxidative footprinting experiments|
|Abstract:||Hydroxyl radical-mediated oxidative footprinting coupled to mass spectrometric analysis is an attractive technique for protein surface mapping, conformational changes monitoring, and protein-ligand interfaces mapping in solution. In this technique, a protein is oxidized by in situ-generated hydroxy radicals and the site and rate of oxidation can be determined by proteolysis followed by mass spectrometric analysis. Changes in peptide oxidation rate can then be correlated to the changes in solvent exposure, and information about conformational changes or interaction domains can be obtained. The method relies, therefore, on the accurate measurements of peptide oxidation rate. Here, we describe a new label-free method to determine the oxidation rate of peptides that is based on the consumption of the unoxidized peptide instead of measuring the formation of oxidized peptides. The reaction rate thus obtained presents a better linearity and lower variation when compared to the traditional method. The label-free method is also simpler to implement and automation can be achieved through label-free quantitation software.|
