Proteins migrate depending on their properties. HPLC – high performance liquid chromatography uses increase pressure and small bead size to improve resolution FPLC – fast protein liquid chromatography controls flow rate with low pressure pumps. Ion-exchange chromatography (cation or anion exchange) Cation exchange: Positive charged solutes bind to the column. Negative charged solutes pas through without interacting with the column. Elution of positive charged solute with salt gradient. Figure 5-6 Size-exclusion chromatography (gel filtration) separates proteins according to size Small molecules “explore” the porous beads, slowing elution. Figure 5-7 Affinity chromatography separates proteins based on their binding specificity Electrophoresis: separation by charge and size PAGE – polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis SDS – a negatively charged detergent VZ μ= = Ef μ = electrophoretic mobility V = molecule velocity E = electric potential Z = net charge f = frictional coefficient Electrophoresis - Stain (Coomassie brilliant blue, silver) - autoradiograph (35S radioisotope) - immuno-blotting (Western blot) Denaturing conditions to separate by size only SDS-PAGE (sodium dodecyl sulfate) Reducing agent (2-mercaptoethanol) Isoelectric Focusing using a pH gradient in the gel Native conditions – proteins are folded Protein migration stops when pH = pI 2D gel separation by - isoelectric point - molecular weight Amino acid sequence of bovine insulin. The sequence was determined by Frederick Sanger who developed the first methods to sequence proteins. Sequencing insulin took ten years. Protein sequencing is faster, but still limited to short peptides (<100 residues) Protein sequencing strategy -separate chains -digest polypeptide -sequence fragments -reconstruct from overlap -repeat without reducing agent to find cross-links Figure 5-12 Sanger’s Reagent – (1-Fluoro-2,4-dinitrobenzene) DNFB – reacts with free amino groups of intact peptide - after hydrolysis DNP-amino acid identified Box 5-1 Pehr Edman’s improved method. Edman degradation Phenylisothiocyanate (PITC) PITC cleaves the peptide bond. N-terminal amino acid is labeled and can be separated by washing. After removal, the procedure is repeated to identify the next residue. Figure 5-15 DNFB 2,4-dinitrofluorobenzene Sanger method relied on incomplete hydrolysis of protein Edman Degradation can use a sequenator PITC = phenylisothiocyanate N-terminal identification Figure 5-13 Reduction of disulfide bonds with 2-mercaptoethanol Page 106 Free thiol groups can be protected by acetylation with iodoacetate to prevent oxidation and cross-linking Page 107 Disulfide bonds interfere with the sequencing procedure Peptide digestion with sequence specific proteases Trypsin cleaves after a positively charged residue: Arginine or Lysine The next residue can be anything but Proline Page 107 Table 5-3 Chemical cleavge by cyanogen bromide after Methionine Protein sequencing strategy – overlapping fragments Figure 5-18 Other methods for obtaining an amino acid sequence: 1) Indirectly from the DNA sequence: 2) Directly using mass spectrometry: tandem mass spectrometry Peptide fragments can be separated by their mass to charge ratio Figure 5-16b Tandem mass spectrometry: 1) separation of peptide fragments 2) collision with He produces smaller fragments 3) i dentify smaller fragments with 2nd mass spectrometer 4) fragments size matched to list of possible sequences Table 5-4 Protein sequences and evolutionary relationships: Sequence alignments show amino acid residues that are conserved by evolution. Why are some residues conserved? Sequences show evolutionary relationships between organisms The above sequences suggest that archae and eukaryotes are closer relatives than eubacteria such as E. coli and B. subtilis Cytochrome c sequence comparison Phylogenetic tree based on cytochrome c comparison Eukaryotes Myoglobin 1 chain Hemoglobin 4 subunits Figure 5-22 Hemoglobin evolved from gene duplication of early globin gene to produce subunits. Variable rates of evolution depend on protein function blood plasma and extracellular matrix oxygen transport electron transport and apoptosis DNA packaging into chromosomes Figure 5-23 Shared protein domains Most are derived from gene duplication Figure 5-24 ...
