Strategies for quantitation of phosphoproteomic data

Giuseppe Palmisano, Tine E. Thingholm

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Recent developments in phosphoproteomic sample-preparation techniques and sensitive mass spectrometry instrumentation have led to large-scale identifications of phosphoproteins and phosphorylation sites from highly complex samples. This has facilitated the implementation of different quantitation strategies in order to study the biological role of protein phosphorylation during disease progression, differentiation or during external stimulation of a cellular system. In this article, a brief summary of the most popular strategies for phosphoproteomic studies is given; however, the main focus will be on different quantitation strategies. Methods for metabolic labeling, chemical modification and label-free quantitation and their applicability or inapplicability in phosphoproteomic studies are discussed.
