Abstract: Mass spectrometry-based proteomics is a uniquely powerful tool to study basic mechanisms of aging. This talk will focus on how the Translational Geroproteomics Unit (NIA) leverages ‘geroproteomic’ approaches to develop biomarkers and therapeutic strategies against age related diseases stemming two major hallmarks of aging: loss of proteostasis and cellular senescence. Metabolic labeling studies have demonstrated that proteome turnover provides important insights into the biology of aging, however, measurement of whole animal turnover remains technically and computationally challenging. I will introduce a new freely available Skyline external tool, TurnoveR, that seamlessly integrates the computational pipeline analysis of protein turnover from metabolic labeling studies into the Skyline software environment. We hope this tool will facilitate the incorporation of protein turnover studies in the context of disease biology. Secondly, this talk will discuss how the Translational Geroproteomics Unit is leveraging secretome and surfaceome pipelines to develop strategies for quantifying and targeting pathogenic (senescent) cells that accumulate during aging to aid in the development of therapeutic against age-related diseases.
