(H) Peak representation in microLC-SWATH-MS. Extracted ion chromatogram (XIC) of the peptide TPVITGAPYYER recorded in microLC-SWATH mode using either 34??25?m/z or 29??16?m/z windows, respectively. A conventional (nanoLC-optimized) SWATH setting25 of 34??25?m/z with a cycling time of 3.3?s prospects to a protection of 5 points per peak. When limiting the mass range covered to 400C850?m/z which contains precursors for 96% of proteins, and reducing accumulation time to 40?ms, cycling time is 1.3?s to protect microLC chromatographic peaks by 11 data points, (I) Different strategies to construct SWATH spectral libraries and their application in microLC-SWATH-MS. A yeast tryptic digest was analyzed using microLC (0.3?mm??250?mm Triart-C18, 3?L/min, 60?min gradient) SWATH-MS by repeated (9) injection of a tryptic digest derived from 10?g yeast protein. Data was processed with Spectronaut 8.0 using SWATH libraries generated by either sample fractionation (tryptic digest, of which 10?g were separated on 60?min microLC Ecdysone distributor gradients at a flow rate of 3?L/min. By using the spectral library produced by prefractionation, we quantified 1766??46 yeast proteins using 34??25?m/z SWATH windows, or 1422??53 proteins when using 29??16?m/z windows (Fig.?1H and Suppl. Fig. 3). Ecdysone distributor The library generated by repeated injection of the same digest (exhaustion) yielded the quantification of 1271??5 and 1157??13 proteins, a similar performance compared to data-extraction with a totally independently created and publicly available SWATH library generated by nanoLC-MS/MS26. Although generated using another chromatography regime, this library quantified 1256??23 and 1118??26 proteins around the microflow datasets, respectively. Without the need for any separately acquired spectral library, on this sample DIA-Umpire quantified Ecdysone distributor 952??0 and 890??2 proteins (Fig.?1I and Suppl. Fig. 3). Peptide quantification figures followed similar styles (Suppl. Figs 4 and 5). In parallel, we tested the overall performance of microLC-SWATH-MS on a standardized whole-proteome human cell collection (K562) tryptic digest, by extracting data using three publicly available spectral libraries generated by combining multiple tissues and fractionation31 or by repetitive injection of tissue-specific cell digests of HEK293 or HeLa cells (Spectronaut26 repository). MicroLC-SWATH-MS achieved quantification of 3951??205, 1832??74 and 2007??63 proteins, respectively, out of single-injections of the unfractionated K562 protein digest, with peptide numbers following the same trend (Fig.?1J, Suppl. Fig. 7). The implementation of microLC-SWATH-MS yielded exact quantities for label free proteomics, both in small scale and large TM4SF19 scale experiments. In small level, the median coefficients of variance (CVs) for replicate injections of the candida samples in all acquisition strategies and analysis libraries were 5.4C8.8% (Fig.?1K and Suppl. Fig. 6) and 5.5C7% for the human being cell collection (Fig. L) and Suppl. Fig. 8). The precision was largely related over the full dynamic range spanning five orders of magnitude (Suppl. Figs 9 and 10). Interestingly, proteins recognized by DIA-Umpire, which in our samples were reduced number compared to additional approaches, yielded a higher precision in the quantification experiments (Fig.?1K). This could be related to a better signal-to-noise percentage of high abundant analytes, or to the highly abundant part of the proteome becoming generally more stable. Indeed, we also detect the large quantity bias in the peptides recognized by DIA-Umpire, indicating its the quantification of more abundant peptides that results Ecdysone distributor in more precise ideals (Suppl. Fig. 11). In order to determine the overall performance characteristics of microLC-SWATH-MS for the meant application of acquiring large numbers of proteomes for data driven biology, we carried out two large studies to optimize strategies for retention time and batch correction, as well as peptide selection. In the 1st, we analyzed 296 proteomes of strains in the BY4741-pHLUM background32. 38 candida strains, each with a single gene deletion, were cultivated in nine replicates to exponential Ecdysone distributor phase, sampled, and processed by a protocol using the Rapigest detergent (Waters, UK) as reported earlier33. Including quality control (QC) samples, this benchmark span over 327 whole-proteome samples, recorded in three batches upon coupling the QTOF mass spectrometer to a commercial nanoLC system (nanoAcquity, Waters) that experienced.
