Abstract: We were interested in studying differentiating cells using proteomics techniques. We used murine erythroleukemia (MEL) cells for our initial studies and then moved on to hematopoetic stem cells. Our investigations required a number of optimizations and innovations in our bottom-up and middle-down analytic pipelines. I will present our characterization of global and histone changes during the differentiation steps and show what insights can be obtained with the current state-of-the-art.
