d2ome, a set of software tools, automates in vivo protein turnover analysis from LC-MS data of heavy water metabolic labeling. As input, it uses mass spectral data (mzML files) and the corresponding protein identification results (mzIdentML files). It is unbiased; it will analyze all proteins/peptides that pass the pre-defined identification thresholds (in identification scores and FDR). Peak detection and mass isotopomer quantification are done using MS1 scans acquired using high resolution and accuracy mass spectrometers. User-provided settings allow flexibility in such parameters as mass accuracy, peptide/protein filtering thresholds, and limits of chromatographic elution window. The quantification is done in three-dimensional space (chromatographic time, m/z, and abundance). The gradual incorporation of deuterium into peptides/proteins is determined via a decay model of the relative isotope abundance of the monoisotope. The model is fit to the experimental data via non-linear regression. Rate constants from all peptides of a protein are statistically analyzed with Grubb’s test to filter outliers. The median of the rates is assigned to the protein.
d2ome was tested using results from alternative methods of label incorporation (labeled Val), comparisons with other tools of similar functionality, and analysis of GC-MS data of heavy water.
d2ome has been coded solely in the C/C++ language of the MS Visual Studio. It can be run either using the graphical user interface or from the command line in MS DOS. It requires at least 10 GB of RAM. d2ome is freely available.
