We present a comprehensive and robust protocol to track the dynamics of all proteins in a complex in yeast cells. A single member of the protein assembly is tagged and conditionally expressed, minimizing the perturbations to the protein complex. Then, SILAC labeling and affinity purification are used for the assessment of the whole protein complex dynamics. This method can determine and distinguish both subunit turnover and exchange specifically in an assembly to provide a comprehensive picture of assembly dynamics. For complete details on the use and execution of this protocol, please refer to Hakhverdyan et al. (2021).
