Table I Proteins regulated by activin A signaling in the ECM. ECM was isolated at the onset of mineralization from SILAC labeled cultures and protein regulation was determined by mass spectrometry measurements. Ratios are averages of reciprocal SILAC experiments. A = Activin A; V = Vehicle. # peptides = minimum number of unique peptides identified for the protein. Ratio count = number of SILAC pairs used for quantitation. From the 293 proteins identified in the ECM 104 were found to be over 1.5-fold regulated but only the 20 strongest regulated proteins are shown (see supplementary Table 1 for the complete list of proteins identified and respective regulation)
