Using both high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and amino acid sequencing (AAS), we previously analyzed band 3 TM peptide-segments that make up the transmembrane protein structure. However, the HPLC/AAS combination method was highly time-consuming. Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization Time-of-Flight (MALDI-TOF) mass spectrometry is used to obtain accurate molecular weight information for proteins/peptides simply and sensitively. We applied the MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry technique to search for TM segments in membrane proteins. In combination with trypsin cleavages after alkali treatments (pH12 or 13) and sample preparation using organic solvents for MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry, we determined the TM segments of band 3 and glycophorin A in erythrocyte membrane. The method can be applied to other polytopic membrane proteins in erythrocyte membrane.
