Aims The development and application of novel identifications and diagnostics of pathogenic bacteria, virulence and antibiotic resistance factors, to enhance treatment of infectious diseases and to address the pandemic of antimicrobial resistance (1). To apply mass spectrometry (MS)-based ‘proteotyping’, a rapid proteomic-genomic method to identify and use cell biomarkers for pathogen identification and detection of targeted metabolic functions ( Methods and results The proteins of intact bacterial cells or cell-fractions are bound to a membrane surface, using the patented (WO2006068619) Lipid-based Protein Immobilization (LPI) technology. Peptides are generated from bound proteins, using enzymatic digestion, separated and analyzed by liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS). The MS profiles are compared to those of reference peptide sequences and the peptide sequences are compared against a curated in-house database of genome sequences. Conclusions Analyses of bacterial cell peptides identified protein biomarkers of infectious bacteria, at the species-level, virulence and antibiotic resistance factors. Model samples have been ‘proteotyped’, using well-characterized reference strains, and an enhanced whole-genome sequence database, to demonstrate ‘proof-of-concept’, and the method been applied directly to the analyses of clinical samples, without prior cultivation. Significance of study Proteotyping demonstrates the potential for proteomics-based analyses for detecting expressed genomic markers of bacterial species, virulence and antibiotic resistance, for the identifications and diagnostics of infectious microorganisms.
