In this paper, principal component analysis (PCA) is applied to a spot quantity dataset comprising 435 spots detected in 18 samples belonging to two different cell lines (Paca44 and T3M4) of control (untreated) and drug-treated pancreatic ductal carcinoma cells. The aim of the study was the identification of the differences occurring between the proteomic patterns of the two investigated cell lines and the evaluation of the effect of the drug Trichostatin A on the protein content of the cells. PCA turned out to be a successful tool for the identification of the classes of samples present in the dataset. Moreover, the loadings analysis allowed the identification of the differentially expressed spots, which characterise each group of samples. The treatment of both the cell lines with Trichostatin A therefore showed an appreciable effect on the proteomic pattern of the treated samples. Identification of some of the most relevant spots was also performed by mass spectrometry.
