Roadmap available at http://www.ibmc.msk.ru/content/intelligence/RHUPO_Roadmap.pdf(external link)
Key issues:
  • The size of the human proteome requires estimates of number of protein species (proteome width) and number of copies of the same protein molecules in a biosample (proteome depth).
  • Master proteome of a single chromosome is the results of the identification and measurement of all master proteins encoded by the selected chromosome and expressed in the selected type of biological material, there master protein is the primary translation of the coding sequence resembling at least one of the known protein forms, coded by the gene.
  • Complete human proteome in this context is the result of (1) constellation of master proteomes of different chromosomes and types of biological material and (2) data about modified (AS, SAP, PTM) protein species.
  • In case PTM and SAP can occur both in the proteins encoded by gene with canonical sequence and splice variants, the number of human protein species (proteome width) was estimated based on the NeXtProt (v2013) data as 1.8 million, which correspond to 2-DE based experimental estimations. Using the assumption that PTMs appear exclusively in sequences of master proteins, but not in splice variants, the width of the human proteome contains approximately 650 000 protein species. If all types of modifications (AS, SAP and PTM) are independent events, the potential proteome width is approximately 8.5 million.
  • One of the most sensitive SRM technology available detection with sensitivity limit of 10-18 M for BSA standard, but additional sample treatment with irreversible binding onto BrCN-Sepharose beads allowed a sensitivity of 10–18 M to be achieved (the proteins CYP102 and BSA was used for calibration), which corresponds to one protein copy/µl of blood plasma.
  • Operating within an ultra-low concentration range, it is convenient to refer to protein copies rather than concentrations because it allows comparison of results of transcriptomic and proteomic experiments.
