Abstract
The MS/MS analysis by Electrospray ionization quadrupole-time of flight mass spectrometry (ESI-Q-TOF MS) was applied to identify proteins in proteome analysis of bacteria whose genomes are not known. The protein identification by ESI-Q-TOF MS was performed sequentially by database search and then de novo sequencing using MS/MS spectra. Soil bacteria having unanalyzed genome, Acinetobacter lwoffii K24 is an aniline degrading bacterium. In this report, we present the results of a comparison between the proteome profile of A. lwoffii K24 cultured in aniline- or succinate-containing media. Protein analysis was performed using two-dimensional gel electrophoresis (2-DE) with pH 3-10 immobilized pH gradient (IPG) strips followed by ESI-Q-TOF MS. More than 780 protein spots were detected by 2-DE from the soluble proteome. Forty-eight of these proteins were expressed exclusively in aniline cultured bacteria, and 81 proteins increased and 162 proteins decreased in aniline-cultured versus succinate cultured A. lwoffii K24. Internal amino acid sequences of 43 major protein spots were successfully determined by ESI-Q-TOF MS to try to identify the bacterial proteins responding to aniline culture condition. Since the A. lwoffii K24 genome is not yet sequenced, many proteins were found to be hypothetical. Comparative proteome analysis of the insoluble protein fractions showed that one novel protein that was strongly induced by succinate-cultured A. lwoffii K24 was repressed under aniline culture conditions. These results suggest that comprehensive analysis of bacterial proteomes by 2-DE and amino acid sequence analysis by ESI-Q-TOF MS is useful for understanding induced novel proteins of biodegrading bacteria.
