PDZD7-MYO7A complex identified in enriched stereocilia membranes.

eLife | Aug 15, 2016

While more than 70 genes have been linked to deafness, most of which are expressed in mechanosensory hair cells of the inner ear, a challenge has been to link these genes into molecular pathways. One example is Myo7a (myosin VIIA), in which deafness mutations affect the development and function of the mechanically sensitive stereocilia of hair cells. We describe here a procedure for the isolation of low-abundance protein complexes from stereocilia membrane fractions. Using this procedure, combined with identification and quantitation of proteins with mass spectrometry, we demonstrate that MYO7A forms a complex with PDZD7, a paralog of USH1C and DFNB31. MYO7A and PDZD7 interact in tissue-culture cells, and co-localize to the ankle-link region of stereocilia in wild-type but not Myo7a mutant mice. Our data thus describe a new paradigm for the interrogation of low-abundance protein complexes in hair cell stereocilia and establish an unanticipated link between MYO7A and PDZD7.

UniProt

Resource for protein sequence and functional information that welcomes updates, corrections, and the submission of new protein sequence data. It is comprised of four components, each optimized for different uses. UniProt Knowledgebase (UniProtKB) is the central access point for curated protein information, including function, classification, and cross-reference, and contains two sections: UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot, which is manually annotated and reviewed; and UniProtKB/TrEMBL, which is automatically annotated and not reviewed. UniProt Reference Clusters (UniRef) are databases providing clustered sets of sequences from the UniProtKB and selected UniProt Archive records to obtain complete coverage of sequence space at several resolutions while hiding redundant sequences. UniProt Archive (UniParc) is a comprehensive repository used to keep track of sequences and their identifiers. UniProt Metagenomic and Environmental Sequences (UniMES) database is a repository specifically developed for metagenomic and environmental data.

ProteomeXchange

A data repository for proteomic data sets. The ProteomeExchange consortium, as a whole, aims to provide a coordinated submission of MS proteomics data to the main existing proteomics repositories, as well as to encourage optimal data dissemination. ProteomeXchange provides access to a number of public databases, and users can access and submit data sets to the consortium's PRIDE database and PASSEL/PeptideAtlas.

GPM

The Global Proteome Machine Organization was set up so that scientists involved in proteomics using tandem mass spectrometry could use that data to analyze proteomes. The projects supported by the GPMO have been selected to improve the quality of analysis, make the results portable and to provide a common platform for testing and validating proteomics results. The Global Proteome Machine Database was constructed to utilize the information obtained by GPM servers to aid in the difficult process of validating peptide MS/MS spectra as well as protein coverage patterns. This database has been integrated into GPM server pages, allowing users to quickly compare their experimental results with the best results that have been previously observed by other scientists.

PeptideAtlas

Multi-organism, publicly accessible compendium of peptides identified in a large set of tandem mass spectrometry proteomics experiments. Mass spectrometer output files are collected for human, mouse, yeast, and several other organisms, and searched using the latest search engines and protein sequences. All results of sequence and spectral library searching are subsequently processed through the Trans Proteomic Pipeline to derive a probability of correct identification for all results in a uniform manner to insure a high quality database, along with false discovery rates at the whole atlas level. The raw data, search results, and full builds can be downloaded for other uses. All results of sequence searching are processed through PeptideProphet to derive a probability of correct identification for all results in a uniform manner ensuring a high quality database. All peptides are mapped to Ensembl and can be viewed as custom tracks on the Ensembl genome browser. The long term goal of the project is full annotation of eukaryotic genomes through a thorough validation of expressed proteins. The PeptideAtlas provides a method and a framework to accommodate proteome information coming from high-throughput proteomics technologies. The online database administers experimental data in the public domain. You are encouraged to contribute to the database.
