Enrichment proteomics challenges and perspectives: analysis of the N-glycoproteome and plasma membrane proteome in glycosylation mutants and plant-pathogen interactions

Research output: Thesisinternal PhD, WU

Abstract

This thesis is based on two technology projects from the Centre for BioSystems Genomics (CBSG), entitled ‘Comparative proteomics on Plant Pathogen interactions through enrichment of the N-glycoproteome and tagged-glycoproteome’ (TD7) and ‘Plasma Membrane proteomics for Plant Pathogen interactions’ (TD5). In the former project we developed the protocol for isolation, identification and quantification of N-linked glycoproteins from plants and used it to obtain a comprehensive inventory of glycan-occupancy of Arabidopsis glycoproteins. In the second project, a protocol for the enrichment of plasma membrane (PM) fraction from plant material was developed and applied to study the role of the PM proteome in the interaction of plants with the plant pathogen Phytophthora infestans. Combined these activities have resulted in a thesis devoted to technical developments in label-free comparative enrichment proteomics, with validation in a number of different biological systems.
