In addition, the fast and efficient second dimension separations enabled by UHPLC technology significantly reduce the peak widths typically ranging from below 1 to 10 s enabling higher peak capacities with respect to 1D-LC more than in less than 1h. SM: I can echo Koen and Andrea. The first step in most protein characterization experiments involves chopping up proteins into peptides.
Separation Science and Proteomics - 1st Edition
To comprehensively identify a human proteome, one needs to handle a peptide mixture numbering in the millions that span a dynamic range of orders of magnitude. The latest mass spectrometers have successful sequencing rates of around peptides per second and, with state of the art UHPLC systems, one can hope to identify k peptides in a single analysis. Thus, the only way to increase capacity is to fractionate and the most powerful and sensitive by far method of fractionation is an additional round of chromatography.
JY: To get the complete mammalian cell proteome as described above will require a tremendous peak capacity and it is unclear if 1D LC can deliver that level of performance.
Andrea Gargano is a post-doctorate researcher at the University of Amsterdam, specializing in two-dimensional liquid chromatography. In the summer of , Gargano was awarded a Veni grant from the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research NWO and he is currently working on the development of multi-dimensional separation strategies for the characterization of intact proteins. Koen Sandra is Scientific Director at the Research Institute for Chromatography RIC , which provides world-class chromatographic and mass spectrometric support to the chemical, life sciences and bio pharmaceutical industries.
As a non-academic scientist, Sandra is author of over 40 highly-cited scientific papers and holder of several patents related to analytical developments in the life sciences area. Shabaz Mohammed, after finishing his PhD in mass spectrometry, moved to Denmark to work with Ole Jensen in the field of proteomics and, in particular, the development of techniques for improving protein information. In , he moved to the University of Oxford where is now Associate Professor. Yates was recently named Editor of the Journal of Proteome Research.
There are entire fields that depend upon it. Characterizing how signals are transported through a cell often requires an understanding of the behavior of proteins being phosphorylated. The presence and absence of this small molecule on proteins can determine if a protein is active, where it is in a cell, and with what it interacts. Phosphorylated proteins are low in abundance occupying the lower levels of protein dynamic range and such events are thought to number in the hundreds of thousands if not millions in a cell at any time.
Identifying these events and their meaning often leads to multiple rounds of chromatography for enrichment and complexity reduction. KS: I have worked at a molecular diagnostics company for several years, where we were applying proteomics to discover and verify disease biomarkers. Using 2D-LC, we could mine the otherwise hidden proteome hidden biomarker candidates , which came in particularly handy in the discovery programs. Now that my focus has in recent years shifted more to biopharmaceutical analysis, 2D-LC based proteomics technologies again come in very handy to identify and quantify host cell proteins HCPs.
While in a 1D chromatographic set-up, the separation space is dominated by peptides derived from the therapeutic protein, the increased peak capacity governed by 2D-LC allows one to look substantially beyond the therapeutic peptides and detect HCPs at low levels sub ppm relative to the therapeutic. We have also used 2D-LC in the quantification of therapeutic proteins in blood plasma to support pre- clinical development pharmacokinetic studies , which is technically identical to biomarker verification.
We have even validated these methods according to EMA guidelines. In these projects, the first dimension is used to reduce the matrix complexity prior to second dimension LC-MS analysis using multiple reaction monitoring. SM: Coupling multiple rounds of chromatography is still not a trivial task. Multidimensional chromatography is still, mostly, used by committed analytical chemists. Sensitivity is of paramount importance in proteomic experiments. HPLC columns often lead to unacceptable losses unless attention is paid to how the sample is brought to each chromatographic system and how it is treated after fractionation.
Miniaturization plays a huge role in proteomics and it is often not straightforward to reduce dimensions and flow rates while increasing column pressures. A significant amount of know-how about the various flavors of chromatography and the underlying science is required to pick and build multidimensional systems for certain types of proteomic experiments. This is not yet the case for nano 2D-LC setups that are used for sample-limited applications, such as proteomic research.
Here, due to dead and dwell volumes, the speed of the 2D cycle is typically limited to longer cycles more than 10 min. In the coming years, further advancement in the miniaturization of LC apparatus e. Method optimization remains a challenge. However, software solutions to reduce the time and effort required to optimize two-dimensional methods will help analytical scientists in this task. KS: In addition to the technical challenges already mentioned, I believe one of the shortcomings is related to nomenclature.
In some ways, this is not surprising given that the technology has been developed from two different angles proteomics and chromatography, respectively. People often contact us to ask which kind of 2D-LC they are actually performing. Importantly, depending on how 2D-LC is performed, one is confronted with flow and mobile phase incompatibilities, reproducibility issues, immature data analysis software, and so on. In the early days of using 2D-LC in proteomics, repeatability and reproducibility were not considered to be important issues.
Now that the technology is really being applied to solve problems, old figures of merit have become primordial. JY: The biggest shortcoming is the time required to perform the analysis, which limits the number of experiments that can be performed. Two-dimensional separation is also common in the analysis of intact proteins from cell lysates top-down proteomics, see Figure 1.
However, the longer analysis time and more sample handling steps of 2D-LC restrict its use in routine analysis of large numbers of samples.
This separation method is the only online 2D-LC setup commonly adopted in proteomics research and many publications have demonstrated the advantages of its high separation power. Yet the longer analysis times and the fact that this setup is exclusively limited to ion-exchange and reversed-phase combinations have limited the spread of this technique.
