Detecting protein variants by mass spectrometry: a comprehensive study in cancer cell-lines
Biochem Lond 21 October ; 42 5 : 64— Mass spectrometry MS -based proteomics is the most comprehensive approach for the quantitative profiling of proteins, their interactions and modifications. It is a challenging topic as a firm grasp requires expertise in biochemistry for sample preparation, analytical chemistry for instrumentation and computational biology for data analysis. In this short guide, we highlight the various components of a mass spectrometer, the sample preparation process for conversion of proteins into peptides, and quantification and analysis strategies. The advancing technology of MS-based proteomics now opens up opportunities in clinical applications and single-cell analysis. Genes are the unit of heredity, but they only come to life when they are translated to proteins — the primary functional actors in biology. They perform an incredible range of functions, from biochemical reactions, signalling and transport to structural support.
Introduction to Protein Mass Spectrometry
In mass spectrometry , de novo peptide sequencing is the method in which a peptide amino acid sequence is determined from tandem mass spectrometry. Knowing the amino acid sequence of peptides from a protein digest is essential for studying the biological function of the protein. In the old days, this was accomplished by the Edman degradation procedure. Generally, there are two approaches: database search and de novo sequencing. Database search is a simple version as the mass spectra data of the unknown peptide is submitted and run to find a match with a known peptide sequence, the peptide with the highest matching score will be selected.
Protein and Peptide Mass Spectrometry in Drug Discovery
The book that highlights mass spectrometry and its application in characterizing proteins and peptides in drug discovery An instrumental analytical method for quantifying the mass and characterization of various samples from small molecules to large proteins, mass spectrometry MS has become one of the most widely used techniques for studying proteins and peptides over the last decade. Bringing together the work of experts in academia and industry, Protein and Peptide Mass Spectrometry in Drug Discovery highlights current analytical approaches, industry practices, and modern strategies for the characterization of both peptides and proteins in drug discovery. Illustrating the critical role MS technology plays in characterizing target proteins and protein products, the methods used, ion mobility, and the use of microwave radiation to speed proteolysis, the book also covers important emerging applications for neuroproteomics and antigenic peptides. Placing an emphasis on the pharmaceutical industry, the book stresses practice and applications, presenting real-world examples covering the most recent advances in mass spectrometry, and providing an invaluable resource for pharmaceutical scientists in industry and academia, analytical and bioanalytical chemists, and researchers in protein science and proteomics.
Introduction to Protein Mass Spectrometry provides a comprehensive overview of this increasingly important, yet complex, analytical technique. Unlike many other methods which automatically yield an absolutely unique protein name as output, protein mass spectrometry generally requires a deduction of protein identity from determination of peptide fragmentation products. This book enables readers to both understand, and appreciate, how determinations about protein identity from mass spectrometric data are made.
In basic terms, the difference is that peptides are made up of smaller chains of amino acids than proteins. But the definition, and the way scientists use each term, is a little loose. As a general rule, a peptide contains two or more amino acids. And just to make it a little more complicated, you will often hear scientists refer to polypeptides — a chain of 10 or more amino acids. But most peptides found in the human body are much shorter than that — chains of around 20 amino acids.
These metrics are regularly updated to reflect usage leading up to the last few days.
Specific applications of mass spectrometry include drug testing and discovery, food contamination detection, pesticide residue analysis, isotope ratio determination, protein identification, and carbon dating. Listed below are some application areas in which mass spectrometry has been used to discover, deduce, and quantify sample compounds. Applications of mass spectrometry in proteomics - Characterization of proteins and protein complexes, sequencing of peptides, and identification of posttranslational modifications. Applications of mass spectrometry in metabolomics - Cancer screening and diagnosis, global metabolic fingerprinting analysis, biomarker discovery and profiling, biofuels generation and use, lipidomics studies, and metabolic disorder profiling. Applications of mass spectrometry in environmental analysis - Drinking water testing, pesticide screening and quantitation, soil contamination assessment, carbon dioxide and pollution monitoring, and trace elemental analysis of heavy metals leaching.
