I assume you mean peaks and not pics.

I think it does not work very well because you removed data points where
the protein count is zero from your dataset.  The first thing I would
try is to complete the dataset with this information before trying the
spline interpolation.  Stated differently: the interpolation works, but
it has to "guess" a lot about your data in the region where you do not
provide data points, and this guess turns out to be wrong.
