Establishing Cell Culture-Based Experimental Setups for Proximity Labeling Using Ascorbate Peroxidase (APEX)
Proximity labeling by ascorbate peroxidase (APEX) requires appropriate experimental setups that generate sufficient signal over background as a prerequisite for downstream analyses by mass spectrometry. Cell culture-based systems are easily accessible, yet, for proximity labeling of small structures must be carefully optimized in order to give satisfying results. How to establish and characterize APEX cell lines will be the topic of this chapter.
