Cell Type-specific Metabolic Labeling of Proteins with Azidonorleucine in Drosophila

Advanced mass spectrometry technology has pushed proteomic analyses to the forefront of biological and biomedical research. Limitations of proteomic approaches now often remain with sample preparations rather than with the sensitivity of protein detection. However, deciphering proteomes and their context-dependent dynamics in subgroups of tissue-embedded cells still poses a challenge, which we meet with a detailed version of our recently established protocol for cell-selective and temporally controllable metabolic labeling of proteins in Drosophila. This method is based on targeted expression of a mutated variant of methionyl-tRNA-synthetase, MetRSL262G, which allows for charging methionine tRNAs with the non-canonical amino acid azidonorleucine (ANL) and, thus, for detectable ANL incorporation into nascent polypeptide chains.

The protein composition of any given cell is intimately linked to its state of differentiation and functionality. Changes in a cell’s proteome may reflect its response to cell-intrinsic cues or to signals originating from elsewhere inside the respective organism or its environment. In turn they are indicative of the significance of those signaling cues. Deciphering proteomes and their dynamics in a cell type-specific fashion has thus become a main focus in current research, reaching at a better understanding of molecular events underlying physiological or pathophysiological processes. Any proteomic approach in this direction, however, is challenged by the heterogeneity of cell types that are interconnected within a tissue or organ of interest. In the brain, for instance, different types of neurons and glial cells form the networks required to control animal or human behavior. Moreover, it is well established that information processing within these networks leading to long-term memory is strictly dependent on de novo protein synthesis and degradation. While this has been exemplified for a number of neuronal proteins (e.g., immediate early gene proteins), it is obvious that proteins that are up- or down-regulated in just a limited number of cells (or even are regulated oppositely in different groups of cells) may easily escape conventional modes of detection, where cellular proteomes are averaged across entire brain areas.
   A number of labeling methods for cellular proteomes have been published in the last two decades, e.g., using isotope-coded affinity tags (Gygi et al., 1999) or isobaric tags for relative and absolute quantification (Ross et al., 2004), quantitative proteomic analysis using samples from cells grown in 14N or 15N media (Washburn et al., 2002; MacCoss et al., 2003), and stable isotope labeling by amino acids in cell culture (Ong et al., 2002; Andersen et al., 2005). Moreover puromycin (Schmidt et al., 2009) and non-canonical amino acids, e.g., azidohomoalanine (AHA) or homopropargylglycine, in combination with click chemistry have been used to decipher cellular proteomes (Link et al., 2003; Link and Tirrell, 2003; Beatty et al., 2006; Dieterich et al., 2006; Link et al., 2006; Dieterich et al., 2010). All of these strategies, however, fail to uncover cell-type specific proteomes within tissue or organ samples. Most recently, novel strategies to resolve this issue have been reported for C. elegans and Drosophila (Elliott et al., 2014; Erdmann et al., 2015; Yuet et al., 2015). They have in common the use of either a mutated aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase or an orthogonal aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase/tRNA for tagging of newly synthesized proteins with food-supplied non-canonical amino acids. Specifically, we could show that upon cell type-specific expression of a mutant Methionyl-tRNA synthetase (MetRSL262G) as achieved by employing the well-established Gal4/UAS-system, the non-canonical amino acid ANL can be incorporated into proteins of selectable cell types in living Drosophila larvae and adult flies. An accompanying study by Niehues et al. (2015) used this method to show the causal involvement of mutated glycyl-tRNA synthetase in a model for the neurodegenerative Charcot Marie Tooth disease.
   ANL-containing proteins can either be analyzed in protein extracts by using biochemistry and mass spectrometry or can be visualized in situ by fluorescence microscopy (Erdmann et al., 2015; Niehues et al., 2015). For more information see ‘Click Chemistry (CuAAC) and detection of tagged de novo synthesized proteins’. The following protocol details the metabolic labeling of proteins in larvae and adult flies with ANL.

Materials and Reagents

  1. Fly vials (e.g., VWR, catalog number: 734-2254 )
  2. Fly vial plugs (e.g., Carl Roth, catalog number: PK13.1 )
  3. Gal4 activator strains of choice (e.g., C57-Gal4 for muscle-specific expression [from Ulrich Thomas, Magdeburg, Germany], elavC155-Gal4 for pan-neuronal expression [from Bloomington stock center, Bloomington, Indiana, USA], repo-Gal4 for glial expression [from Christian Klämbt, Münster, Germany])
  4. UAS-dMetRSL262G effector strains [available at request from Daniela C. Dieterich & Ulrich Thomas]. As described in Erdmann et al. (2015) various lines expressing dMetRSL262G either tagged with 3xmyc or EGFP are available
    Note: We traditionally use ONM. The standard corn meal medium has also been successfully used in Niehues et al. (2015) for ANL labeling, thus, we anticipate that other media can be used as well without any limitations.
  5. Otto-normal-medium (ONM, see Recipes)
    1. Agar-Agar (Carl Roth, catalog number: 5210 )
    2. Semolina (local food store)
    3. Mashed raisins (local food store)
    4. Baker’s yeast (local food store)
    5. Sugar beet sirup (local food store)
    6. Honey (local food store)
    7. Tap water
    8. 20% (w/v) Nipagin (see Recipes)
      1. Methyl-4-hydroxybenzoat (Merck, catalog number: 106757 )

      3. 100 % ethanol (Th. Geyer, catalog number: 2246 )
  6. 200 mM ANL stock solution (for the synthesis of ANL see [Link et al., 2007; Ngo et al., 2009; Erdmann et al., 2015]) (see Recipes)


  1. Beaker (kitchen/household grade)
  2. Immersion blender (kitchen/household grade)
  3. Paintbrush (art supplies)
  4. Fly incubator (e.g., SANYO, model: MIR-553 )
  5. Hotplate (kitchen/household grade)

  1. Preparation of ANL-containing fly food medium (Figure 1)
    1. Thaw baker’s yeast.
    2. Add semolina and Agar-Agar to 0.33 L water. Stir from time to time until swelling is completed.
    3. Heat mashed raisins, yeast, sugar beet syrup and honey in 0.66 L water. Boil the mixture for 5 min while stirring constantly.
    4. Add the semolina-Agar-Agar-mixture and boil once again. Don’t forget to stir constantly, as the mixture might braise at the bottom of the pot.
    5. Cool down the ONM to 50 °C. Stir every 15-20 min for 1 min.
    6. Add the Nipagin and stir for at least 1 min until the Nipagin is homogenously distributed in the food.
    7. Add 2 ml of ANL stock solution to 100 ml ONM in a beaker for a final concentration of 4 mM ANL. Mix for 1 min using an immersion blender.
    8. Aliquot ANL-containing ONM (2-4 ml) into fly vials and let cool down completely at room temperature.
    9. Plug the vials.
    10. ANL-containing ONM can be stored for approximately two weeks at 4 °C. Discard vials once the ONM detaches from the vial wall.

      Figure 1. Preparation of ANL-containing fly food medium. A. Ingredients for ONM are shown: R (mashed raisins); S (semolina); BS (sugar beet syrup); H (honey). B. Semolina and Agar-Agar are added to water and allowed to swell, SAA. C. Raisins and Baker’s yeast (Y), sugar beet syrup (BS), and honey (H), are added into water and boiled for 5 min. D. Afterwards, the SAA mixture is added and boiled once more. After cooling down to 50 °C with stirring from time to time, Nigapin and ANL are added and mixed thoroughly. E and F. Media is then aliquoted and allowed to cool down completely before storage at 4 °C.

  2. Cell type-specific expression of dMetRSL262G-variants in Drosophila larvae and flies
    1. Collect virgin female flies of the respective activator strain.
      Note: The number of flies and hence the number of offspring depends on your experimental design including the type of analysis (e.g., MS/MS) and the effectiveness and degree of cell selectivity of the Gal4-activator in use.
    2. Cross virgin female flies of the activator strain to male flies of a UAS-dMetRSL262G-effector strain (Erdmann et al., 2015).
      Note: Crosses can as well be set up reciprocally, that is, you may use virgin female flies of a UAS-dMetRSL262G-effector strain and cross them to males of your activator strain.

  3. Cell type-specific labeling of proteins with ANL–examples
    1. Long-term labeling of proteins in larval body wall muscles:
      1. Raise appropriate crosses on ANL-containing ONM such that ANL is present during all developmental stages of the progeny.
      2. Mid- to late 3rd larval stage is reached after approximately 5 days when crosses are raised at 25 °C and after approximately 10-12 days when kept at 18 °C.
      3. Perform dissection of larval body walls according to ‘Click Chemistry (CuAAC) and detection of tagged de novo synthesized proteins’. See also Bellen and Budnik (2000).
        Note: Biochemical approaches on whole larval extracts have proven difficult to perform time and again, perhaps due to lytic activities. We therefore recommend separating body walls (mainly comprising muscles, epithelia, cuticle, trachea and sensory neurons) from all other tissues.
    2. Long-term labeling of proteins in fly heads (e.g., if dMetRSL262G is expressed in the CNS, compound eyes and/or antenna):
      1. Raise crosses on ANL-containing ONM so that ANL is present throughout development of the progeny.
      2. Remove parental flies before eclosure of the offspring.
      3. Prepare fly heads from adult progeny according to ‘Click Chemistry (CuAAC) and detection of tagged de novo synthesized proteins’.
    3. Short-term labeling of proteins in larval body wall muscles or brains:
      1. Raise crosses on ANL-free ONM for 1-2 days at 25 °C.
      2. Transfer parental flies onto fresh ANL-free ONM for 4-6 h. Remove parental flies.
      3. Keep vials for 72 ± 2 h at 25 °C.
      4. Wash early 3rd instar larvae out of the food with warm tap water and rinse them into a mesh basket.
      5. Transfer 3rd instar larvae onto ANL-containing ONM using a paintbrush.
      6. Keep larvae at 25 °C for 24 h.
      7. Prepare the larval body walls or larval brains according to ‘Click Chemistry (CuAAC) and detection of tagged de novo synthesized proteins’.
    4. Short-term labeling of proteins in fly heads:
      1. Raise appropriate crosses on ANL-free ONM either at 25 °C or 18 °C depending on your experimental design.
      2. Discard parental flies before progeny ecloses.
      3. Transfer progeny flies on ANL-containing ONM for a period of time according to your experimental design. For certain analyses it may also be considered to place flies back onto ANL-free food.
      4. Prepare fly heads according to ‘Click Chemistry (CuAAC) and detection of tagged de novo synthesized proteins’.

Data analysis

ANL incorporation into fly or larval proteins can be analyzed after performing copper-catalyzed azide-alkyne cycloaddition (CuAAC, ‘click chemistry’) as described in Erdmann et al. (2015) and the accompanying bio-protocol. General fly and larvae viabilities upon ANL incorporation can be analyzed by assessing e.g., locomotor behavior and/or hatching rates as described in Erdmann et al. (2015).


  1. Reproducibility and variability: Uptake of ANL and thus subsequent labeling efficiency may vary when heterogeneous animal numbers are raised in the vials, as the food will be differently mashed through depending on the number of larvae. Also of note, larvae will show in general stronger ANL incorporation compared to adult flies.
  2. ANL-containing ONM is used best within two weeks after preparation to yield reproducible results.

先进的质谱技术将蛋白质组学分析推向了生物与生物医学研究的前沿。 蛋白质组学方法的局限性现在通常与样品制备相关,而不是蛋白质检测的灵敏度。 然而,破译组织嵌入细胞亚群中的蛋白质组学及其上下文相关动力学仍然是一个挑战,我们通过我们最近建立的细胞选择性和时间上可控的代谢标记的详细版本满足了果蝇中蛋白质的代谢标记。 该方法基于甲硫氨酰-tRNA合成酶的突变变体MetRSL262G 的靶向表达,其允许用非标准氨基酸叠氮基亮氨酸(ANL)装载甲硫氨酸tRNA,因此,用于 可检测的ANL并入新生多肽链。
 在过去二十年中,使用同位素编码的亲和标签(Gygi等人,1999),已经公布了许多用于细胞蛋白质组学的标记方法,例如,或者用于相对和绝对定量的同量异序标签(Ross等人,2004),使用在 14中生长的细胞的样品的定量蛋白质组学分析, N媒体(Washburn等人,2002; MacCoss等人,2003),以及细胞培养中氨基酸的稳定同位素标记(Ong等人, ,2002; Andersen等人,2005)。此外,嘌呤霉素(Schmidt等人,2009)和非标准氨基酸,例如,叠氮基丙氨酸(AHA)或高炔丙基甘氨酸与点击化学结合已被用于解密细胞蛋白质组(Link等人,2003; Link和Tirrell,2003; Beatty等人,2006; Dieterich等人,2006) ; Link 等人,2006; Dieterich等人,2010)。然而,所有这些策略未能发现组织或器官样本内的细胞型特异性蛋白质组。最近报道了解决这个问题的新策略。电针杆和果蝇(Elliott等人,2014; Erdmann等人,2015; Yuet等人,2015) 。它们通常使用突变的氨酰-tRNA合成酶或正交氨酰-tRNA合成酶/ tRNA来用食物供应的非正常氨基酸标记新合成的蛋白质。具体来说,我们可以显示,通过使用公认的Gal4 / UAS系统实现的突变型甲硫氨酰-tRNA合成酶(MetRS L262G )的细胞类型特异性表达,非规范氨基酸ANL可以并入生活在果蝇幼虫和成年苍蝇中的可选细胞类型的蛋白质中。 Niehues等人(2015)的随机研究使用该方法显示突变的甘氨酰-tRNA合成酶在神经变性Charcot Marie Tooth疾病模型中的因果关系。
 可以通过使用生物化学和质谱法在蛋白质提取物中分析含ANL的蛋白质,或者可以通过荧光显微镜(Erdmann等人,2015)进行原位可视化 Niehues等人,,2015)。有关更多信息,请参阅“Click Chemistry(CuAAC)”和检测标记的“no novo”合成蛋白质。以下方案详述了具有ANL的幼虫和成年苍蝇中蛋白质的代谢标记。

      5. 使用油漆刷将3日龄幼体转移到含有ANL的ONM上。
      6. 将幼虫在25°C保存24 h
      7. 根据“Click Chemistry(CuAAC)”和检测标记的“no novo”合成蛋白质,准备幼虫体壁或幼虫大脑。
    4. 飞头蛋白质短期标记:
      1. 根据您的实验设计,在25°C或18°C时,在ANL-ON ONM上提高适当的交叉。
      2. 在子代生长之前放弃亲本苍蝇。
      3. 根据您的实验设计,在含ANL的ONM上转移后代苍蝇一段时间。对于某些分析,也可以考虑将苍蝇放回无ANL食物。
      4. 根据“Click Chemistry(CuAAC)”和检测标记的“no novo”合成蛋白质制备飞头。




  1. 重复性和变异性:当异种动物数量在小瓶中升高时,ANL的摄取和随后的标记效率可能会变化,因为根据幼虫的数量,食物将被不同的捣碎。另外值得注意的是,与成年苍蝇相比,幼虫通常会显示更强的ANL结合
  2. 含ANL的ONM在制备后的两周内最好使用,以产生可重复的结果。
