LC–MS is one of the most important tools for the comprehensive characterization of N -glycans. Despite many efforts to speed up glycan analysis via optimized sample preparation (e.g., faster enzyme digestion in combination with instant or rapid labeling dyes), a major bottleneck remains the rather long measurement times of HILIC chromatography. Fur...

Photo-induced cross-linking is a mainstay technique to characterize RNA-protein interactions. However, UV-induced cross-linking between RNA and proteins at “zero-distance” is poorly understood. Here, we investigate cross-linking of the RBFOX alternative splicing factor with its hepta-ribonucleotide binding element as a model system. We examine the...

Enhancer RNAs (eRNAs) are long non-coding RNAs that originate from enhancers. Although eRNA transcription is a canonical feature of activated enhancers, the molecular features required for eRNA function and the mechanism of how eRNAs impinge on target gene transcription have not been established. Thus, using eRNA-dependent RNA polymerase II (Pol II...

Cross-linking coupled with mass spectrometry is an increasingly popular methodology for elucidating structural information from biological complexes. Whilst protein-protein cross-linking workflows are widely used and well characterised, adoption of protein-RNA cross-linking workflows for structural studies is less widespread, and data produced from...

Over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, mRNA-based vaccines have gained tremendous importance. The development and analysis of modified RNA molecules benefit from advanced mass spectrometry and require sufficient understanding of fragmentation processes. Analogous to the degradation of RNA in solution by autohydrolysis, backbone cleavage of RNA s...

1975 veröffentlichten O’Farrell und Klose unabhängig voneinander zwei Arbeiten mit spektakulären Bildern, in denen sie zeigten, dass die Kombination von isoelektrischer Fokussierung und SDS-Gelelektrophorese in der Lage ist, äußerst komplexe Proteingemische aufzutrennen. Dieses damals neue Verfahren, die zweidimensionale Gelelektrophorese, setzte s...

RNA–protein interactions mediate many intracellular processes. CLIR-MS (cross-linking of isotope-labeled RNA and tandem mass spectrometry) allows the identification of RNA–protein interaction sites at single nucleotide/amino acid resolution in a single experiment. Using isotopically labeled RNA segments for UV-light-induced cross-linking generates...

Understanding structure-function relationships of RNA-binding proteins requires knowledge of how they bind RNAs in vivo. RNA-protein interactions are studied using light-induced cross-linking at “zero-distance”, yielding nucleotide/amino-acid adducts for mass-spectrometry (MS)-based characterization. However, prerequisites for cross-linking are poo...

Article
The functions of eukaryotic mRNAs are characterized by intramolecular interactions between their 5' and 3' ends. Here, we have addressed the question whether such 5'-3' interactions are established by diffusion-controlled encounter of the ends 'through solution' or by some type of scanning along the RNA backbone. For this purpose, we used an in vit...

Previous studies have shown the benefits of the amine-reactive, CID-MS/MS-cleavable cross-linker disuccinimidyl dibutyric urea (DSBU) for structural proteomics studies via cross-linking/MS (XL-MS). To further facilitate the automation of XL-MS experiments, we synthesized a deuterated (D12) version of the DSBU cross-linker combining the advantages o...

Just recently, chemical cross-linking combined with mass spectrometry (XL-MS) has emerged as valuable tool to study protein interaction networks on the system-wide level. The current challenges in XL-MS are to develop robust workflows enabling a comprehensive capture of dynamic biological assemblies in their native environment in a routine manner....

Chemical cross‐linking combined with mass spectrometry (XL‐MS) and computational modeling has evolved as an alternative method to derive protein 3D structures and to map protein interaction networks. Special focus has been laid recently on the development and application of cross‐linkers that are cleavable by collisional activation as they yield di...

This study investigated the enzyme-substrate interaction between the Saccharomyces cerevisiae arginine methyltransferase Hmt1p and nucleolar protein Npl3p, using chemical crosslinking-mass spectrometry (XL-MS). We show that XL-MS can capture transient inter-protein interactions that occur during the process of methylation, involving a disordered re...

A major challenge in cross-linking/mass spectrometry (MS) is targeting carboxyl functions in proteins under physiological conditions that do not disturb the protein’s conformation. Cross-linking of glutamic acid and aspartic acid residues in proteins will greatly expand the scope of structural mass spectrometry. We discovered that carboxyl-reactive...

Translational repression of maternal mRNAs is an essential regulatory mechanism during early embryonic development. Repression of the Drosophila nanos mRNA, required for the formation of the anterior-posterior body axis, depends on the protein Smaug binding to two Smaug recognition elements (SREs) in the nanos 3' UTR. In a comprehensive mass-spectr...

We have synthesized a homobifunctional amine-reactive cross-linking reagent, containing a TEMPO (2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidine-1-oxy) and a benzyl group (Bz), termed TEMPO-Bz-linker, to derive three-dimensional structural information of proteins. The aim for designing this novel cross-linker was to facilitate the mass spectrometric analysis of cros...

Post-transcriptional 3' end addition of nucleotides is important in a variety of RNA decay pathways. We have examined the 3' end addition of nucleotides during the decay of the Hsp70 mRNA and a corresponding reporter RNA in Drosophila S2 cells by conventional sequencing of cDNAs obtained after mRNA circularization and by deep sequencing of dedicate...

CID-MS/MS cleavable cross-linkers hold an enormous potential for an automated analysis of cross-linked products, which is essential for conducting structural proteomics studies. The created characteristic fragment ion patterns can easily be used for an automated assignment and discrimination of cross-linked products. To date, there are only a few s...

Chemical cross-linking in combination with a mass spectrometric analysis of the created cross-linked products is an area of growing interest for deriving low-resolution structural information of proteins and protein complexes. One of the greatest challenges is the complexity of the created cross-linking mixtures, which can be met by a charge-based...

Chemical crosslinking in combination with mass spectrometry has matured into an alternative approach to derive low-resolution structural information of proteins and protein complexes. Yet, one of the major drawbacks of this strategy remains the lack of software that is able to handle the large MS datasets that are created after chemical crosslinkin...
