According to the protein function and subcellular annotations from the Swiss-Prot and TrEMBL protein database (us.expasy.org/sprot/), the protein spots were identified as arginine kinase, phosphopyruvate hydratase, and actin T2, all downregulated expression (Table 4).
To validate the proteins identified by 2-DE and MALDI-TOF/TOF mass spectrometry further, the expression of genes for arginine kinase, phosphopyruvate hydratase, and actin [T.sub.2] in postmortem changes during the storage period was confirmed by quantitative RT-PCR.
Phosphopyruvate hydratase, a muscle metabolism enzyme related to glycolysis, showed great downregulation postmortem (Fig.
