Abstract

mAb proteomics, a reversed biomarker discovery approach, is a novel methodology to recognize the proteins of biomarker potential, but requires subsequent antigen identification steps. While in case of high-abundant proteins, it generally does not represent a problem, for medium or lower abundant proteins, the identification step requires a large amount of sample to assure the proper amount of antigen for the ID process. In this article, we report on the use of combined chromatographic and precipitation techniques to generate a large set of fractions representing the human plasma proteome, referred to as the Analyte Library, with the goal to use the relevant library fractions for antigen identification in conjunction with mAb proteomics. Starting from 500mL normal pooled human plasma, this process resulted in 783 fractions with the average protein concentration of 1mg/mL. First, the serum albumin and immunoglobulins were depleted followed by prefractionation by ammonium sulfate precipitation steps. Each precipitate was then separated by size exclusion chromatography, followed by cation and anion exchange chromatography. The 20 most concentrated ion exchange chromatography fractions were further separated by hydrophobic interaction chromatography. All chromatography and precipitation steps were carefully designed aiming to maintain the native forms of the intact proteins throughout the fractionation process. The separation route of vitamin D-binding protein 114226918 was followed in all major fractionation levels by dot blot assay in order to identify the library fraction it accumulated in and the identity of the antigen was verified by Western blot.
