Author : Michael Kinter, Nicholas E. Sherman
Description:How to design, execute, and interpret experiments for protein sequencing using mass spectrometryThe rapid expansion of searchable protein and DNA databases in recent years has triggered an explosive growth in the application of mass spectrometry to protein sequencing. This timely and authoritative book provides professionals and scientists in biotechnology research with complete coverage of procedures for analyzing protein sequences by mass spectrometry, including step-by-step guidelines for sample preparation, analysis, and data interpretation.Michael Kinter and Nicholas Sherman present their own high-quality, laboratory-tested protocols for the analysis of a wide variety of samples, demonstrating how to carry out specific experiments and obtain fast, reliable results with a 99% success rate. Readers will get sufficient experimental detail to apply in their own laboratories, learn about the proper selection and operation of instruments, and gain essential insight into the fundamental principles of mass spectrometry and protein sequencing. Coverage includes:Peptide fragmentation and interpretation of product ion spectraBasic polyacrylamide gel electrophoresisPreparation of protein digests for sequencing experimentsMass spectrometric analysis using capillary liquid chromatographyTechniques for protein identification by database searchesCharacterization of modified peptides using tandem mass spectrometryAnd much more
