  • Publication number: 20230035606
    Abstract: This invention provides mass spectrometry (MS) compatible nanomaterials for the selective capture and enrichment of low abundance proteins as well as MS analysis of different proteoforms of proteins, particularly cardiac proteins and different proteoforms of cardiac troponin I (cTnI) arising from post-translational modifications and sequence variations. The surface of superparamagnetic nanoparticles is functionalized with probe molecules that specifically bind to the desired protein. In an embodiment, the nanoparticles are functionalized with probe molecules having high affinity and selectivity for cTnI within the human cardiac troponin complex. This allows for MS-analysis and characterization of cTnI proteoforms from human heart tissue lysates and human blood or serum samples, and provides an accurate assay for detection of cTnI with molecular details.
