antibody-free quantification of proteins in biofluids
A mass spectrometry-based
method could be useful for quantifying proteins in biofluids with ELISA-like
sensitivity. In the method's first step, microliter volumes of
trypsin-digested human serum were fractionated via liquid chromatography-tandem
mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) into a 96-well plate. In the second step,
LC-MS/MS analysis of individual or multiple combined fractions detected
peptides corresponding to target proteins, thereby enabling quantification of
those proteins at low pg/mL concentrations. In human serum from patients with
prostate cancer, the method measured prostate-specific antigen (KLK3; PSA) concentrations with an
accuracy comparable to that of ELISA. Ongoing work includes using the
technique to quantify undisclosed proteins in human urine.
