A proteomic analysis of mammalian preimplantation embryonic development

MG Katz-Jaffe, DW Linck, WB Schoolcraft, DK Gardner



Genetic studies on the mammalian preimplantation embryo are providing a wealth of information regarding gene expression. However, changes in the transcriptome do not always reflect cellular function or the complexity and diversity of the mammalian proteome with post-translational modifications or protein-protein interactions. To elucidate embryonic cellular function, a detailed understanding at the protein level is necessary. The aim of this study was to generate protein profiles of mammalian embryos throughout development, and to investigate the effects of oxygen concentration on the embryonic proteome. A protocol was developed to analyse small groups of embryos (n = 5) by time-of-flight ma..
