We describe the rapid and reproducible acquisition of quantitative proteome maps for the NCI-60 cancer cell lines and their use to reveal cancer biology and drug response determinants. Proteome datasets for the 60 cell lines were acquired in duplicate within 30 working days using pressure cycling technology and SWATH mass spectrometry. We consistently quantified 3,171 proteotypic proteins annotated in the SwissProt database across all cell lines, generating a data matrix with 0.1% missing values, allowing analyses of protein complexes and pathway activities across all the cancer cells. Systematic and integrative analysis of the genetic variation, mRNA expression and proteomic data of the NCI-60 cancer cell lines uncovered complementarity between different types of molecular data in the prediction of the response to 240 drugs. We additionally identified novel proteomic drug response determinants for clinically relevant chemotherapeutic and targeted therapies. We anticipate that this study represents a significant advance toward the translational application of proteotypes, which reveal biological insights that are easily missed in the absence of proteomic data.
