Alternative splicing greatly expands the coding capacity of the human genome, but how many alternative transcripts are translated as proteins or carry functional importance remains unknown and awaits experimental verification. Here, we describe a protocol that combines transcriptomics (RNA-seq) and proteomics (mass spectrometry [MS]) analyses to identify alternative isoforms in proteomes. This workflow is applicable to custom-generated RNA-seq and MS data from matching samples, as well as th…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
