Simon Lin, manager of the Duke Bioinformatics Shared Resource, led off the session by presenting the results of a study he and colleagues recently completed proposing an improved method of data classification in proteomics-based research using matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight (MALDI-TOF) mass spectrometry, an enhanced version of the original technology used for protein identification.
Standard protein techniques such as ion-exchange HPLC and isoelectric focusing (IEF) on polyacrylamide gel can detect many Hb variants (2), but correct identification of single mutated, inserted, or deleted amino acid residues requires more sophisticated techniques, such as electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) or matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) (3-5).
Peptide-mass profiles of polyvinylidene difluoride-bound proteins by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry in the presence of nonionic detergents.
