Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Stable Isotope Labelling
What are the applications of stable isotope-labelled compounds?
Stable isotope-labelled compounds containing deuterium, carbon-13, and nitrogen-15 have been successfully used in clinical pharmacology for measuring drug fate and degradation, determining mechanisms of action, the bioavailability of drugs and drug delivery systems, and the metabolism of toxins. Beyond clinical applications, isotope-labelled compounds have been increasingly used to study the fate of contaminants in the environment and trophic pathways (i.e., bioaccumulation, biomagnification, etc.).
What does SILAC stand for?
SILAC stands for Stable Isotope Labelling with Amino Acids in Cell Culture. It is also called Metabolic Labelling and it uses non-radioactive isotopes such as 13C6,15N2-lysine and 13C6,15N4-arginine in the culture medium with the purpose of incorporating the stable isotopes during protein synthesis. In contrast to radiolabelled compounds, SILAC compounds do not require expensive protective materials, handling facilities, or safety training.
What is SILAC used for?
Classical SILAC experiments are popular for quantitative proteomics and use stable isotope-labelled amino acids to label the entire proteome of a cell culture or isotope-labelled proteins to tag only specific pathways in a cell. Coupled with mass spectrometry, classical SILAC measures differential protein abundances between labelled and unlabelled cell lysates. The applications of this method range from the elucidation of metabolic pathways to measuring protein-mediated cell-cell interactions and even detecting important post-translational modifications.
