"DEVELOPMENT OF Ti4+-IMMOBILIZED NANOPOROUS MONOLITHIC POLYMER FOR SELECTIVE SEPARATION AND DETECTION OF PHOSPHOPEPTIDES "

2018 RASAYAN Journal of Chemistry  
Phosphopeptides present in a large number of biological regulating mechanisms. It plays a significant role in gene regulation, eukaryotic signal transduction, and metabolic control in a cell. Abnormal phosphorylation can cause various diseases, including cancer. However, phosphoprotein abundances are very low, only 1-2%. In this work, the nanoporous monolith columns were developed for separation and detection of phosphopeptides in phosphoproteome analysis. The nanoporous monolith-based column

This monolith was further chemically modified by introducing aminomethyl phosphonic acid (AMPA) before immobilization of Ti 4+ ion (Ti 4+ -immobilized). The monolithic column properties, such as morphology, elemental analysis, surface area analysis, permeability and pore distribution were characterized in detail. Such a Ti 4+immobilized nanoporous monolith-based column with immobilization time 3 hours of TiCl4 without glutaraldehyde addition was further applied to separation and detection of phosphopeptides from digested proteins (β-casein and cytochrome-c), and tyrosine phosphorylated peptide samples. The result demonstrated that Ti 4+ -immobilized nanoporous monolith-based provide higher selectivity and efficiency for selective detection of phosphopeptides using liquid chromatography.
