Summary Excitotoxicity, a neuronal death process in neurological disorders, is initiated by over-stimulation of neuronal ionotropic glutamate receptors. The over-stimulated receptors dysregulate proteases, protein kinases and phosphatases, which in turn modify target neuronal proteins to induce cell death. To decipher this cell death mechanism, we used quantitative proteomics, phosphoproteomics and N-terminomics to identify modified proteins in excitotoxic neurons. Data, available in ProteomeXchange (identifiers: PXD019527 and PXD019211), enabled us to identify over one thousand such proteins with calpains, cathepsins and over twenty protein kinases as their major modifiers. These protein mo..
