    In "Speaking of Faith," radio journalist Krista Tippett recalls the time when she began to recognize the hypocrisy and contradictions in the behavior of the people around her. Tippett's experience is not only far from unusual, it is formative. It led her to make some important decisions in her life, including the desire never to live a life of…

    , Cambridge, MA, USA; 3Howard Hughes Medical Institute Massachussets General Hospital, Boston, MA, USA A challenge to obtaining high quality organellar proteomes is the difficulty of purifying organelles to homogeneity without loss of crucial components. Furthermore, many subcellular regions of great importance cannot be purified at all, and hence their proteomes are not known. We present a live cell proximity-dependent enzymatic biotinylation strategy that bypasses the need for organellar purification and produces highly specific proteomic maps of multiple subcellular regions. The tagging enzyme is APEX2, an evolved variant of soybean ascorbate peroxidase that generates short-lived biotin-phenoxyl radicals for covalent tagging in vivo. We used this approach to generate proteomes of 137 and 637 proteins, respectively, for the outer mitochondrial membrane and endoplasmic reticulum membranes. Our list contains numerous novel proteins not previously associated with these cellular regions that potentially point to novel biological functions. C.8 Optimization of Glycopeptide Enrichment Using Lectin Weak Affinity Chromatography Jason Maynard, Krista Kaasik, A.L. Burlingame Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry, School of, San Francisco, CA, USA O-linked N-acetylglucosamine (O-GlcNAc) modification of serine and threonine residues in cytosolic and nuclear proteins has been implicated in diverse molecular processes within the cell from regulation of the cell cycle to synaptic plasticity. Cellular levels of O-GlcNAc are sensitive to a number of nutrients including glucose and glutamine. Misregulation of O-GlcNAc has also been implicated in several human diseases, including diabetes, cardiac infarction, and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease. Although ubiquitous within the cell and discovered over thirty years ago, large-scale studies of O-GlcNAc have lagged far behind those of other post-translational modifications, including phosphorylation

    proteins which are fundamental regulators of PPARg and the fat cell commitment decision. B.6 Application of Quantitative and Functional Phosphoproteomics In Study of Ethylene Signaling Ning Li 1 1The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Hong Kong, China Ethylene is a major plant hormone that regulates a diverse aspect of plant growth and development. The regulatory roles of ethylene in plants include promotion of leaf and flower petal senescence, yellowing and abscission, as well as promotion of fruit abscission and ripening. This key hormone is also involved in regulation of a number of plant biotic and abiotic stress responses. A dramatic effect of ethylene on tropic response is the dual-and-opposing effect of ethylene on stem negative gravitropic response, in which short-term ethylene treatment (0.5 hour) appears to inhibit stem bending up following re-orientation of inflorescence of Arabidopsis. In contrast, a long-term treatment (12 hours) stimulates gravitropic response and promote stem curve up faster. This time-dependent and dose- independent dual-and-opposing effect of ethylene on stem gravitropism may involve multiple signaling pathways. Stable isotope metabolic labeling-based quantitative phosphoproteomics performed on ein2–5, ctr1–1 and rcn1–1 ethylene signaling mutants indeed confirmed the time-dependent protein phosphorylation changes and some of phosphorylation events are independent to ein2 loss-of- function gene in response to ethylene treatment. Functional studies on the phosphorylated transcription factor ERF110 isoform suggest that it is required for the control of flowering time via multiple ethylene signaling pathways.
