The availability of complete genomic sequences and technologiesthat allow comprehensive analysis of global expression profiles ofmessenger RNA1–3 have greatly expanded our ability to monitorthe internal state of a cell. Yet biological systems ultimately needto be explained in terms of the activity, regulation and modifi-cation of proteins—and the ubiquitous occurrence of post-transcriptional regulation makes mRNA an imperfect proxy forsuch information. To facilitate global protein analyses, we havecreated a Saccharomyces cerevisiae fusion library where eachopen reading frame is tagged with a high-affinity epitope andexpressed from its natural chromosomal location. Throughimmunodetection of the common tag, we obtain a census ofproteins expressed during log-phase growth and measurementsof their absolute levels. We find that about 80% of the proteome is Figure 1 Tagging and detection of the yeast proteome. a, Schematic diagram of tagging expressed during normal growth conditions, and, using strategy. b, Detection of tagged proteins.

To calculate CEC values, we first determined the relative range of abundances detected in this study, including the very low prevalence of the 61 amino acids specifying codons in the 3,753 named ORFs expression levels, represent functionally significant amounts of the (Supplementary Table S1). The codon usage expected in random sequences was thencalculated based on the approximate prevalence of 30% T, 30% A, 20% C and 20% G proteins.

The enrichment of each codon for the positive set is indicates that within groups of genes that are turned off during given by dividing its prevalence among the named ORFs by its expected prevalence in log-phase growth the corresponding proteins are not observed, even random sequences (Supplementary Table S1).

The CEC is the linear correlation coefficient (r) between the entire yeast proteome (Fig. 4b, red) is similar to the profile of the codon enrichments of the test ORF and the positive set (for examples, see SupplementaryFig. S2). ORFs were designated as spurious if they failed to be detected by both the TAP and portion of the proteome whose function is required for survival GFP analyses, and they had CEC values below a cut-off of 0.25, 0.16, 0.07 or 0.06 for ORFs under standard growth conditions (Fig. 4b, purple).
