The proteome and phosphoproteome of non-structural proteins of Adenovirus type 2 (Ad2) were time resolved using a developed mass spectrometry approach. These proteins are expressed by the viral genome and important for the infection process, but not part of the virus particle. We unambiguously confirm the existence of 95% of the viral proteins predicted to be encoded by the viral genome. Most non-structural proteins peaked in expression at late time post infection. We identified 27 non-redundant sites of phosphorylation on seven different non-structural proteins. The most heavily phosphorylated protein was the DNA binding protein (DBP) with 15 different sites. The phosphorylation occupancy rate could be calculated and monitored with time post infection for 15 phosphorylated sites on various proteins. In the DBP, phosphorylations with time-dependent relation were observed. The findings show the complexity of the Ad2 non-structural proteins and opens up a discussion for potential new drug targets.
