Prosetta will provide ARS with putative protein targets that Prosetta will purify using a variety of affinity techniques; the proteins may include various modifications and cross-links. Final purification will be done by SDS-PAGE gels that will be stained with coomassie blue. The proteins of interest will be cut from the gels are then processed to yield a set of peptides, which be analyzed by mass spectrometry to identify the sequences and structural features of the proteins. Further analysis will be performed to reveal the location of any modifications or crosslinks.
