Dataset Summary
TitleAntibody-free targeted proteomics assay for absolute measurement of α-tubulin acetylation
DescriptionAcetylation of α-tubulin at conserved lysine 40 (K40) amino acid residue regulates microtubule dynamics and controls a wide range of cellular activities. Dysregulated microtubule dynamics characterised by differential α-tubulin acetylation is a hallmark of cancer, neurodegeneration and other complex disorders. Hence, accurate quantitation of α-tubulin acetylation is required in human disease and animal model studies. We developed a novel antibody-free proteomics assay to measure α-tubulin acetylation targeting protease AspN-generated peptides harbouring K40 site. Using the synthetic unmodified and acetylated stable isotope labelled peptides DKTIGGG and DKTIGGGD, we demonstrate assay linearity across 4 log magnitude and reproducibility of <10% coefficient of variation . The assay accuracy was validated by titration of 10% to 80% mixture of acetylated/non-acetylated α-tubulin peptides in the background of human olfactory neurosphere-derived stem (ONS) cell matrix. Furthermore, in agreement with antibody-based high content microscopy analysis, the targeted proteomics assay reported an induction of α-tubulin K40 acetylation upon Trichostatin A stimulation of ONS cells. Independently, we found 35.99% and 16.11% α-tubulin acetylation for mouse spinal cord and brain homogenate tissue, respectively, as measured by our assay. In conclusion, this simple, antibody-free proteomics assay enables quantitation of α-tubulin acetylation, and is applicable across various fields of biology and medicine.
