Resumo: BACKGROUND: Shellfish farming is an important economic activity that provides society with a valuable source of food. Analyses of the protein content and metabolism of shellfish are therefore of utmost importance to monitor the presence and effects of environmental contaminants in these organisms and also to assess food quality and authenticity. The aim of the present study was to compare different protein extraction protocols commonly used in two-dimensional gel electrophoresis (2DE) research and select the most suitable for the analysis of gill and digestive gland proteomes from the marine mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis. RESULTS: High-resolution protein separation was achieved by direct solubilisation of proteins from M. galloprovincialis tissues with urea (7 mol L−1), thiourea (2 mol L−1), CHAPS (40 g L−1), DTT (65 mmol L−1) and ampholytes (pH 4–7, 8mLL−1). Subsequent protein identification from 2DEgels by MALDI-TOF/TOFmass spectrometry revealed a high number of proteinswith functions in cytoskeleton structure, dynamics andmaintenance. Other proteins identified in the 2DE gels are involved in energy production and carbohydratemetabolism, metal transport, chaperones and stress response, cell signalling and regulation, proteolysis and protein transduction. CONCLUSION: Important protein markers for contaminant and quality assessment of shellfish food products can be analysed using 2DE.
