Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Salivary biomarkers related to saliva secretion disorder were identified in a primary Sjögren syndrome (pSS)pSS murine model, NOD/ShiLtJ mouse, using differential proteomic analysis. We used 14-week-old female NOD/ShiLtJ mice and age- and sex-matched BALB/c mice as controls. 30 stimulated saliva samples and mixed them into six protein pools (three pSS pools and three control pools) for differential proteomic analysis.After Nano-high-performance liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (HPLC-MS/MS) separation, 98.14% (69,276/69,276) spectra were used for protein identification. We identified 1,101 proteins from saliva; 68.12% (750/1,101) were detected both in NOD/ShiLtJ and BALB/c mice .Two mice strains showed a similar salivary protein spectrum. Differentially expressed proteins were determined by applying Mann-Whitney test, corrected by Benjamini-Hochberg method at a significance level of p<0.03173 and fold change of >1.5.
