      Abstract:

      Selenomethionine-modified proteins can improve X-ray   crystallographic structural resolution by multi-wavelength   anomalous diffraction (MAD) phasing. However, the specificity and   extent of selenomethionine incorporation must first be assessed.   Bottom-up and top-down proteomics with a modified 14.5 T LTQ   Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometer offer   a quick, accurate, and robust method to locate and quantify   selenomethionine incorporation after auxotrophic expression.   Selenomethionine (methionine with sulfur replaced by selenium)   has a different natural-abundance isotopic distribution and a   mass increase of 47.94 Da relative to wild-type methionine. Here,   both wild-type and selenomethionine-substituted forms of the Cas6   protein containing 'clustered regularly interspaced short   palindromic repeats' (CRISPRs) were expressed and purified.   Comparative bottom-up and top-down proteomics confirmed that all   six methionines were fully replaced by selenomethionines in   Se-Cas6.
