AbstractThe proteome is determined by rates of transcription, translation, and protein turnover. Definition of stem cell populations therefore requires a stem cell proteome signature. However, the limit to the number of primary cells available has restricted extensive proteomic analysis. We present a mass spectrometric method using an isobaric covalent modification of peptides for relative quantification (iTRAQ), which was employed to compare the proteomes of approximately 1 million long-term reconstituting hematopoietic stem cells (Lin(-)Sca(+)Kit(+); LSK(+)) and non-long-term reconstituting progenitor cells (Lin(-)Sca(+)Kit(-); LSK(-)), respectively. Extensive 2-dimensional liquid chromatography (LC) peptide separation prior to mass spectrometry (MS) enabled enhanced proteome coverage with relative quantification of 948 proteins. Of the 145 changes in the proteome, 54% were not seen in the transcriptome. Hypoxia-related changes in proteins controlling metabolism and oxidative protection were observed, indicating that LSK(+) cells are adapted for anaerobic environments. This approach can define proteomic changes in primary samples, thereby characterizing the molecular signature of stem cells and their progeny.
