Pulsed SILAC as a Approach for miRNA Targets Identification in Cell Culture.

12 Jul 2018

Pulsed stable isotope labeling by amino acids in cell culture (pSILAC) comprises a variation of the classical SILAC proteomic methodology that enables the identification of short-term proteomic responses such as those elicited by micro RNAs (miRNAs). Here, we describe a detailed pSILAC protocol for global identification and quantification of protein translation alterations induced by a miRNA using 3T3-L1 pre-adipocytes as a model system.
