Comparison of protein precipitation methods for various rat brain structures prior to proteomic analysis

Sample preparation is a fundamental step in proteomic methodologies. The quality of the results from a proteomic experiment is dependent on the nature of the sample and the properties of the proteins. In this study, various pre-treatment methods were compared by proteomic analysis; we analysed various rat brain structures after chloroform/methanol, acetone, TCA/acetone and TCA protein precipitation procedures. The protein content of the supernatant was also examined by 2-DE. We found that for four of the rat brain structures, precipitation with chloroform/methanol and acetone delivered the highest protein recovery for top-down proteomic analysis; however, TCA precipitation resulted in good protein separation and the highest number of protein spots in 2-DE. Moreover, TCA precipitation also gave high efficiency of protein recovery if prior sonication procedure was performed.
