Representing and Comparing Site-Specific Glycan Abundance Distributions of Glycoproteins

July 30, 2021
Concepcion Remoroza, Meghan Burke, Yi Liu, Yuri Mirokhin, Dmitrii Tchekhovskoi, Xiaoyu Yang, Stephen Stein
A method for representing and comparing distributions of N-linked glycans located at specific sites in proteins is presented. The representation takes the form of a simple mass spectrum for a given peptide sequence, with each peak corresponding to a

MS_Piano: A Software Tool for Annotating Peaks in CID Tandem Mass Spectra of Peptides and N-Glycopeptides

July 15, 2021
Xiaoyu Yang, Pedatsur Neta, Yuri Mirokhin, Dmitrii Tchekhovskoi, Concepcion Remoroza, Meghan Burke, Yuxue Liang, Sanford Markey, Stephen Stein
Annotating product ion peaks in tandem mass spectra is essential for evaluating spectral quality and validating peptide identification. This task is more complex for glycopeptides and is crucial for the confident determination of glycosylation sites in

Sensitive Method for the Confident Identification of Genetically Variant Peptides in Human Hair

October 31, 2019
Zheng Zhang, Meghan Burke, William E. Wallace, Yuxue Liang, Sergey L. Sheetlin, Yuri Mirokhin, Dmitrii Tchekhovskoi, Stephen Stein
Recent reports have demonstrated that genetically variant peptides (GVPs) derived from human hair shaft proteins can be used to differentiate individuals of different biogeographic origin (Parker, G.J.; et al. PLos One. 2016, e0160653). We report a direct

February 9, 2018
Qian Dong, Yuxue Liang, Xinjian Yan, Sanford P. Markey, Yuri A. Mirokhin, Dmitrii V. Tchekhovskoi, Tallat H. Bukhari, Stephen E. Stein
We describe the creation of a mass spectral library composed of all identifiable spectra derived from the tryptic digest of a therapeutic monoclonal antibody. The NISTmAb library is a unique reference peptide spectral library developed from a total of six

Reverse and Random Decoy Methods for False Discovery Rate Estimation in High Mass Accuracy Peptide Spectral Library Searches

February 2, 2018
Zheng Zhang, Meghan C. Burke, Yuri A. Mirokhin, Dmitrii V. Tchekhovskoi, Sanford P. Markey, Wen Yu, Raghothama Chaerkady, Sonja Hess, Stephen E. Stein
Spectral library searching (SLS) is an attractive alternative to sequence database searching (SDS) for peptide identification due to its speed, sensitivity, and ability to include any selected mass spectra. However, SLS does not have a widely tested and

Combining fragment ion and neutral loss matching during mass spectral library searching: A new general-purpose algorithm applicable to illicit drug identification

November 20, 2017
Arun S. Moorthy, William E. Wallace, Anthony J. Kearsley, Dmitrii V. Tchekhovskoi, Stephen E. Stein
A mass spectral library search algorithm that identifies compounds that differ from library compounds by a single ‘inert’ structural component is described. This algorithm, the Hybrid Similarity Search, generates a similarity score based on matching both

The Hybrid Search: A Mass Spectral Library Search Method for Discovery of Modifications in Proteomics

April 3, 2017
Meghan C. Burke, Yuri A. Mirokhin, Dmitrii V. Tchekhovskoi, Sanford P. Markey, Stephen E. Stein, Jenny Heidbrink Thompson, Christopher Larkin
We present a mass spectral library based method to identify tandem mass spectra of peptides that contain unanticipated modifications and amino acid variants. We describe this as a ‘hybrid’ method since it combines matching both ion m/z and mass losses. The

Mass Spectral Library Quality Assurance by Inter-Library Comparison

April 2, 2017
William E. Wallace, Weihua Ji, Dmitrii V. Tchekhovskoi, Karen W. Phinney, Stephen E. Stein
A method to discover and correct errors in mass spectral libraries is described. Comparing across a set of highly curated reference libraries compounds that have the same chemical structure quickly identifies entries that are outliers. In cases where three

Interconversion of Peptide Mass Spectral Libraries Derivatized with iTRAQ or TMT Labels

July 7, 2016
Zheng Zhang, Xiaoyu Yang, Yuri A. Mirokhin, Dmitrii V. Tchekhovskoi, Weihua Ji, Sanford P. Markey, Pedatsur Neta, Bowen A. Michael, Stephen E. Stein
Derivatizing peptides with isobaric tags such as iTRAQ and TMT is widely employed in proteomics due to their ability to multiplex quantitative measurements. We recently made publicly available a large peptide library derived from iTRAQ 4-plex labeled

A Description of the Clinical Proteomics Tumor Analysis Consortium (CPTAC) Common Data Analysis Pipeline

February 10, 2016
Jeri S. Roth, Paul A. Rudnick, Sanford P. Markey, Yuri A. Mirokhin, Xinjian Yan, Dmitrii V. Tchekhovskoi, Stephen E. Stein, Nathan J. Edwards, Ratna R. Thangudu, Karen A. Ketchum, Christopher R. Kinsinger, Mehdi Mesri, Henry Rodriguez
The Clinical Proteomic Tumor Analysis Consortium (CPTAC) has produced large proteomics datasets from the mass spectrometric interrogation of tumor samples previously studied by The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) program. The availability of the genomic and
