THP-1 cell line is considered as an important model cell line to study the biology of the monocytes/ macrophages. The cell line is used to study the progression of various diseases such as, diabetes, tuberculosis and cancer. Advent of proteomics has revolutionized the discovery of new proteins by data independent acquisition (DIA) approach as well as the diagnosing the role of the novel or already known proteins in the cell biology by data dependent acquisition (DDA) approach. Recently, Sequential window acquisition of all theoretical mass spectra (SWATH) is introduced as a new Proteomics approach that carries the advantages of both the DIA as well as the DDA.Therefore a reference library has been  generated  for SWATH analysis and presented in the manuscript.


Key words: Macrophages, Mass Spectrometry, Proteins, Reference Library, SWATH analysis, Thp1 cell line.
