Zhang et al demonstrated the importance and utility of Single-Shot Capillary Zone Electrophoresis in the Journal of Proteome Research.

Capillary zone electrophoresis (CZE) is a practical tool in exploring and interpreting post-translational modifications in proteins. To examine the usefulness of single-shot CZE with mass spectrometry through the analysis of phosphoproteomics, researchers used CZE separations with the Orbitrap Fusion Lumos Tribrid platform, and used a linear-polyacrylamide-coated capillary with low electroosmotic flow for separation.

Researchers found that larger injection volumes led to broader peaks and less phosphopeptide identifications. Additionally, in this single-shot phosphoproteome analysis, researchers found 4405 phosphopeptides out of an original 220 ng enriched phosphopeptides from a mouse brain.

Data for this study is available in the ProteomeXchange with identified PXD012888.
