Leading practitioners describe in detail advanced methods of mass spectrometry used in structural characterization of biomacromolecules of both natural and recombinant origin. They demonstrate by example how these methodologies can solve a wide array of real-world problems in protein biochemistry, immunology, and glycobiology, as well as for human bacterial pathogens, lipids, and nucleic acids. The book offers a unique opportunity to learn these techniques that are revolutionizing the field. Its authoritative assessment in the context of how to solve important and challenging problems in bioscience and medicine ensures a competitive advantage for today's researchers.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The articles are uniformly well written...In summary, the book best serves the community interested in the characterization of proteins by mass spectrometer methods, but it contains valuable insights for analysis of other biomolecules as well.- Quarterly Review of Biology
Comprises 26 contributions drawn from the Third International Symposium on Mass Spectrometry in the Health and Life Sciences, held in San Francisco, September 1994. A sampling of the topics: multichannel recording of peptide amino acid sequences; using deuterium exchange and mass spectrometry to study protein structure; carbohydrate recognition studies; identification of proteins isolated by two-dimensional gel electrophoresis; and posttranscriptional modification in nucleic acids by tandem mass spectrometry. The appendices cite the masses and composition of commonly occurring amino acid residues, and other valuable data. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
