Acute pancreatitis (AP) is a common acute abdominalgia of the digestive tract. When the disease progresses to severe acute pancreatitis (SAP), the complications and mortality rate greatly increase. Determining the key factors and pathways underlying AP and SAP will help elucidate the pathological processes involved in disease progression and will be beneficial for identifying potential therapeutic targets. We conducted an integrative proteomics, phosphoproteomics and acetylation proteomics analysis of pancreas samples collected from normal, AP and SAP rat models. We identified 9582 proteins, 3130 phosphorylated modified proteins, and 1677 acetylated modified proteins across all samples. The differentiated expression proteins and KEGG pathway analysis suggested the pronounced enrichment of key pathways based on the following group comparisons: AP versus normal, SAP versus normal, and SAP versus AP. Integrative proteomics and phosphoproteomics analyses revealed 985 jointly detected proteins in the comparison of AP and normal samples, 911 proteins in the comparison of SAP and normal samples, and 910 proteins in the comparison of SAP and AP samples. Based on proteomics and acetylation proteomics analyses, we found that 984 proteins were jointly detected in the comparison of AP and normal samples, 990 proteins in SAP and normal samples, and 728 proteins in SAP and AP samples. Thus, our study offers a valuable resource to understand the proteomic and protein modification atlas in AP.
