PSD95-Disc large-Zonula occludens (PDZ) domains are among the most abundant modular domains in the human proteome. They typically bind short carboxy-terminal sequence motifs of their ligand proteins, which may be transmembrane proteins such as ion channels and GPCRs, as well as soluble proteins. The identity of the endogenous ligands of many PDZ domains remains unclear despite more than two decades of PDZ research. Combinatorial peptide phage display and bioinformatics predictions have contributed to shed light on PDZ-mediated interactions. However, the efficiency of these methods for the identification of interactions of potential biological relevance is hampered by different biases. Proteomic peptide-phage display (ProP-PD) was developed to overcome these limitations. Here we describe a ProP-PD protocol for the identification of C-terminal PDZ domain ligands. The method efficiently identifies peptide ligands within a proteome of interest, and pinpoint targets of potential biological relevance.
