Abstract: Lysosomes and mitochondria are membrane-bound organelles in the cell that are responsible for trash-disposal and ATP production, respectively. Lysosomal and mitochondrial dysfunctions have been linked to numerous human diseases, such as neurodegeneration, cancer, and cardiovascular diseases. These organelles are highly dynamic and frequently interact with other cellular components in a transient fashion, which are difficult to capture with traditional immunoprecipitation and organelle isolation methods. Here, I will describe our recent efforts in developing proximity labeling proteomics, metabolomics, and dynamic SILAC approaches to characterize sub-organelle microenvironment and protein turnover in human iPSC-derived neurons. I will also
introduce our newly established universal and sample type-specific contaminant libraries that can benefit both DDA and DIA proteomics for the broad bottom-up proteomics community.
