This subproject is one of many research subprojects utilizing the resources provided by a Center grant funded by NIH/NCRR. Primary support for the subproject and the subproject's principal investigator may have been provided by other sources, including other NIH sources. The Total Cost listed for the subproject likely represents the estimated amount of Center infrastructure utilized by the subproject, not direct funding provided by the NCRR grant to the subproject or subproject staff. We continue to maintain an internet based bioinformatic resource for protein mass spectrometry. WE also maintain the databases used to search for proteins and insert specialized databases upon request by our users. These tools ca be found at the universal resource locator and include: ProFound ProFound is a tool for searching a protein sequence collections with peptide mass maps. A Bayesian algorithm is used to rank the protein sequences in the database according to their probability of producing the peptide map. ProteinInfo ProteinInfo is a collection of tools for retrieval and analysis of protein sequences. The capabilities of the analysis tools include peptide mapping, mass spectrometric fragmentation analysis, disulfide mapping, etc. PeptideMap PeptideMap is a tool for finding modifications on polypeptide sequences. The modifications can be affecting single amino acids (e.g. phoshorylation or oxidation) or cross-linking two amino acids (e.g. disulfide bonds or chemical cross-linking reagents). PepFrag PepFrag is a tool for identifying proteins from a collection of sequences that matches a single tandem mass spectrum. X! Tandem X! Tandem is a tool for identifying proteins from a collection of peptide sequences that matches tandem mass spectra. X! Hunter X! Hunter is a tool for identifying proteins that matches tandem mass spectra to a library of spectra that have been confidently assigned to a particular peptide sequence. GPMDB GPMDB is a database of tandem mass spectra and their assigned peptide sequences. It is designed to aid in the difficult process of validating peptide MS/MS spectra.
