  • Tagging and detection strategies for activity-based proteomics CURRENT OPINION IN CHEMICAL BIOLOGY Sadaghiani, A. M., Verhelst, S. H., Bogyo, M. 2007; 11 (1): 20-28


    The field of activity-based proteomics is a relatively new discipline that makes use of small molecules, termed activity-based probes (ABPs), to tag and monitor distinct sets of proteins within a complex proteome. These activity-dependant labels facilitate analysis of systems-wide changes at the level of enzyme activity rather than simple protein abundance. While the use of small molecule inhibitors to label enzyme targets is not a new concept, the past ten years have seen a rapid expansion in the diversity of probe families that have been developed. In addition to increasing the number and types of enzymes that can be targeted by this method, there has also been an increase in the number of methods used to visualize probes once they are bound to target enzymes. In particular, the use of small organic fluorophores has created a wealth of applications for ABPs that range from biochemical profiling of diverse proteomes to direct imaging of active enzymes in live cells and even whole animals. In addition, the advent of new bioorthogonal coupling chemistries now enables a diverse array of tags to be added after targets are labeled with an ABP. This strategy has opened the door to new in vivo applications for activity-based proteomic methods.
