  1. The top 50 proteins identified in the mixed sample of pellicles, GCF, parotid saliva, and mixed saliva are listed. During iTRAQ analysis, a mixture of the four samples was analyzed by LC–MS/MS quantitatively. All of the major proteins in Fig. 3b except for histone H2B are among the top 50 proteins in Table 1. Note that keratins may be originated from surrounding tissue or environment. N: number of identified proteins. The proteins are listed in the order of reliability evaluated by the “score” and the “%Cov”. Score: A value indicating the reliability of the identification calculated from the accuracy of the amino acid sequence of the fragments, the intensity of peptide signals, coverage of the whole protein sequence, and number of fragments detected.  % Cov: The ratio of amino acid number identified from the peptides to the whole sequence of the protein. Peptides (95%): The number of peptide fragments reliably identified for the protein
