The Details of Human Glomerulus Protein Database
db1Source Infomation
Glomerulus was highly purified from renal cortex with no pathologic manifestations obtained from a kidney removed by nephrectomy because of ureter tumor. glo
A phase-constrast micrograph of highly purified glomeruli.

db1Identification Strategy
Proteins extracted from highly purified glomeruli were cysteine-alkylated. A part of protein (20g) extract was directly separated by SDS-PAGE (1D prefractionation) and the rest (2 mg) was separated by solution phase IEF into 5 fractions, and each fraction was separated by SDS-PAGE (2D prefractionation). Each lane on SDS-PAGE were sliced15 sections and proteins were in-gel digested with trypsin, and analyzed by nanoflow-LC- iontrap MS/MS. The protein identifications were conducted by searching IPI human protein database by using Spectrum Mill as a search engine. idn

db1Acquisition of MS Data
Mass spectra data were obtained by nano-LC-IT-MS/MS (1100 LC/ MSD Trap XCTUltra, Agilent Technologies) with a HPLC nanospray Chip. Each sample was run twice for 70 minutes each with 2 blank runs between the sample runs.
