Rund et al. (2013) Anopheles gambiae mass spec. peptides


Description of data

Olfaction is important for the mosquito detection of blood-feeding hosts, sugar feeding sources and oviposition sites.. In this study we characterized the proteome of adult female An. gambiae antennae, THAs (maxillary palps, antennae and proboscises) and whole mosquito head using LC/MS/MS analysis. MS and MS/MS data were acquired on an LTQ Velos Orbitrap instrument (Thermo Fisher Scientific) using a TOP8 method. The combined injections yielded 7201 peptide identifications at a 1% false discovery rate (FDR) and 8350 at a 5% FDR, representing one of the largest collections of sensory protein identifications in mosquitoes to-date.

The data is also deposited into the PeptideAtlas with accession PASS00300.
