The current invention provides a method for directly converting histopathologically processed biological samples, tissues, and cells into a multiuse biomolecule lysate. This method allows for simultaneous extraction, isolation, solubilization, and storage of all biomolecules contained within the histopathologically processed biological sample, thereby forming a representative library of said sample. This multi-use biomolecule lysate is dilutable, soluble, capable of being fractionated, and used in any number of subsequent experiments.

The current disclosure provides for specific peptides, and derived ionization characteristics of the peptides, from the KRT5, KRT7, NapsinA, TTF1, TP63, and/or MUC1 proteins that are particularly advantageous for quantifying the KRT5, KRT7, NapsinA, TTF1, TP63, and/or MUC1 proteins directly in biological samples that have been fixed in formalin by the method of Selected Reaction Monitoring (SRM) mass spectrometry, or what can also be termed as Multiple Reaction Monitoring (MRM) mass spectrometry. Such biological samples are chemically preserved and fixed wherein said biological sample is selected from tissues and cells treated with formaldehyde containing agents/fixatives including formalin-fixed tissue/cells, formalin-fixed/paraffin embedded (FFPE) tissue/cells, FFPE tissue blocks and cells from those blocks, and tissue culture cells that have been formalin fixed and or paraffin embedded. A protein sample is prepared from said biological sample using the Liquid Tissue reagents and protocol and the KRT5, KRT7, NapsinA, TTF1, TP63, and/or MUC1 proteins are quantitated in the Liquid Tissue sample by the method of SRM/MRM mass spectrometry by quantitating in the protein sample at least one or more of the peptides described. These peptides can be quantitated if they reside in a modified or an unmodified form. An example of a modified form of a KRT5, KRT7, NapsinA, TTF1, TP63, and MUC1 fragment peptide is phosphorylation of a tyrosine, threonine, serine, and/or other amino acid residues within the peptide sequence.

The current disclosure provides specific peptides, and derived ionization characteristics of the peptides from the estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR), and/or antigen Ki67 (Ki67) proteins that are particularly advantageous for quantifying the ER, PR, and/or Ki67 proteins directly in biological samples that have been fixed in formalin by the method of Selected Reaction Monitoring/Multiple Reaction Monitoring (SRM/MRM) mass spectrometry. Such biological samples are chemically preserved and fixed wherein the biological sample is selected from tissues and cells treated with formaldehyde containing agents/fixatives including formalin-fixed tissue/cells, formalin-fixed/paraffin embedded (FFPE) tissue/cells, FFPE tissue blocks and cells from those blocks, and tissue culture cells that have been formalin fixed and or paraffin embedded. A protein sample is prepared from a biological sample using the Liquid Tissue reagents and protocol, and the ER, PR, and/or Ki67 proteins are quantitated in the Liquid Tissue sample by the method of SRM/MRM mass spectrometry by quantitating in the protein sample at least one or more of the peptides described for one or more of the ER, PR, and/or Ki67 proteins. These peptides can be quantitated if they reside in a modified or in an unmodified form. An example of a modified form of an ER, PR, and/or Ki67 peptide is phosphorylation of a tyrosine, threonine, serine, and/or other amino acid residues within the peptide sequence.

Specific peptides, and derived ionization characteristics of the peptides, from the Insulin Receptor protein (IR), and its isoforms IR-A and IR-B, that are particularly advantageous for quantifying the IR protein, IR-A isoform and/or IR-B isoform, directly in biological samples that have been fixed in formalin by the method of Selected Reaction Monitoring (SRM) mass spectrometry, or what can also be termed as Multiple Reaction Monitoring (MRM) mass spectrometry. Such biological samples are chemically preserved and fixed and are selected from tissues and cells treated with formaldehyde containing agents/fixatives including formalin-fixed tissue/cells, formalin-fixed/paraffin embedded (FFPE) tissue/cells, FFPE tissue blocks and cells from those blocks, and tissue culture cells that have been formalin fixed and or paraffin embedded. A protein sample is prepared from said biological sample using the Liquid Tissue reagents and protocol and the IR protein, and IR-A and/or IR-B isoforms, is quantitated in the Liquid Tissue sample by the method of SRM/MRM mass spectrometry by quantitating in the protein sample at least one or more of the peptides described. These peptides can be quantitated if they reside in a modified or an unmodified form. An example of a modified form of an IR peptide is phosphorylation of a tyrosine, threonine, serine, and/or other amino acid residues within the peptide sequence.

The current disclosure provides for specific peptides, and derived ionization characteristics of the peptides, from the ALK, Ros, Ron, Ret, TS, and/or FGFR1 proteins that are particularly advantageous for quantifying the ALK, Ros, Ron, Ret, TS, and/or FGFR1 proteins directly in biological samples that have been fixed in formalin by the methods of Selected Reaction Monitoring (SRM) mass spectrometry, or as Multiple Reaction Monitoring (MRM) mass spectrometry. Such biological samples are chemically preserved and fixed wherein the biological sample is selected from tissues and cells treated with formaldehyde containing agents/fixatives including formalin-fixed tissue/cells, formalin-fixed/paraffin embedded (FFPE) tissue/cells, FFPE tissue blocks and cells from those blocks, and tissue culture cells that have been formalin fixed and or paraffin embedded.
