IEF peptide fractionation method combined to shotgun proteomics enhances the exploration of rice milk proteome

We conducted a proteomics study in order to detect the proteomic method which provides the most complete characterization of the proteins of rice milk. In particular, we compared the results obtained from LC-MS/MS after protein precipitation with acetone or TCA, as well as the results obtained from LC-MS/MS after protein prefractionation based on SDS-PAGE (GeLC-MS/MS) or ProteoMiner™ technology (ProteoMiner-LC-MS/MS), and after peptide prefractionation based on IEF (pIEF-LC-MS/MS). A total of 158 protein species have been detect in rice milk. The physical-chemical analysis and classification of the identified proteins were also reported. In particular, we showed that pIEF-LC-MS/MS method led to a significant increase in the proteome coverage, allowing the identification of a total of 96 proteins of milk rice. This study demonstrates the utility of a prefractionation step based on pIEF before the shotgun proteomic analysis and offers an in-depth insight into the rice milk proteome.
