  • a The Mascot algorithm was used to identify the protein names and the Swiss-Prot accession nos. (

  • b Colostrum and mature milk were analyzed from two individuals indicated by the numbers 1 and 2 in subscript. Only proteins identified in both individuals are shown. Mascot score (S) cut-off was 25 and numbers of matching peptides (P) are indicated. Mass tolerance of 0.3 Da was used for both MS and MS/MS spectra, and the modifications of carbamidomethylated cysteine and oxidized methionine as well as one missed cleavage were allowed.

  • c Suggested functions are derived from the Swiss-Prot database.

  • d Cell types and references (in parentheses): Mast, Mast cell (43 ); B, B cell (44 ); Mov, immortalized neuroglial cell (45 ); MC, mesothelioma cell (46 ); IEC, intestinal epithelial cell (9 , 47); and DC, dendritic cell (48).

  • e Indicates additional confirmation using the ProID algorithm at confidence levels typically >90 but with cutoff at confidence of >50.
