The current study used three different proteomic strategies, which differed by their extent of intact protein separation, to examine the proteome of a pluripotent mouse embryonic stem cell line, R1. Proteins from whole-cell lysates were subjected either to 2-D-LC, or 1-DE, or were unfractionated prior to enzymatic digestion and subsequent analysis by MS. The results yielded 1895 identified non-redundant proteins and, for 128 of these, the specific isoform could be determined based on detection of an isoform-specific peptide. When compared with two previously published proteomic studies that used the same cell line, the current study reveals 612 new proteins.
