Protein microarrays or proteome chips are potentially powerful tools for comprehensive analysis of protein-protein interactions. In interaction analysis, a set of immobilized proteins is arrayed on slides and each slide is probed with a set of fluorescently labeled proteins. Here we have developed and tested an in vitro protein microarray, in which both arraying and probing proteins were prepared by cell-free translation. The in vitro synthesis of fluorescently labeled proteins was accomplished by a new method: a fluorophore-puromycin conjugate was incorporated into a protein at the C-terminus on the ribosome. The resulting fluorescently labeled proteins were confirmed to be useful for probing protein-protein interactions on protein microarrays in model experiments. Since the in vitro protein microarrays can easily be extended to a high-throughput format and also combined with in vitro display technologies such as the streptavidin-biotin linkage in emulsions method (Doi and Yanagawa, FEBS Lett. 1999, 457, 227-230), our method should be useful for large-scale analysis of protein-protein interactions.
