These studies will include establishing targeted proteomic workflows for the quantitative measurement of peptide analytes/hormones that cannot be measured by antibody-based ELISAs and to develop biochemical methods to identify differentially and/or reciprocally regulated sites of Ser/Thr O-GlcNAcylation and phosphorylation. Experience in sample preparation, chromatography, nano-LC-MS/MS instrumentation, data acquisition, data analysis, and computational bioinformatic analysis of proteomics data is required. Instrumentation in the Proteomics Center includes a Thermo Scientific Orbitrap Fusion Lumos ETD/UVPD MS, Orbitrap Elite ETD MS, Waters Xevo TQ-S triple quadrupole MS for LC-MS/MS and a Bruker Tims-TOF Flex, Solarix 7T FT-ICR, and Rapiflex TOF-TOF for MALDI-imaging MS.
