Abstract A proteomic analysis of bovine amniotic and allantoic fluids collected around Day 45 of gestation was performed using gel-based and LC-based MS workflows. A depletion/enrichment protocol using ultrafiltration under denaturing and reducing conditions produced an enriched fraction containing protein species predominantly between 5 and 50 kDa molecular weight. The analyses of conceptus fluid proteins were performed using two strategies; first, 2-DE coupled with MALDI-TOF-MS/MS and LC-ESI-MS/MS analysis of individual protein spots and second, a global protein snapshot of the enriched 5-50 kDa protein fraction by LC-ESI-MS/MS and LC-MALDI-TOF-MS/MS. Allocation of bovine specific protein identities was achieved by searching the Interactive Bovine In Silico SNP (IBISS) and NCBInr protein sequence databases resulting in the confident PMF identification and MS/MS confirmation of >200 2-DE generated allantoic fluids protein spots (74 individual protein species identified) and the MS/MS peptide identification of 105 LC-ESI-MS/MS generated protein identities. In total, the identity of 139 individual protein species from allantoic fluids was confirmed with peptide sequence probability MOWSE scores at the p<0.05 level or better. The comparison of bovine Day 45 amniotic and allantoic fluids protein profiles revealed differences between these two conceptus fluids in early pregnancy.
