I have developed a microfluidics affinity assay compatible with transmembrane proteins and post-translational modifications that is highly sensitive and can provide quantitative data.
Their topics include mass spectrometry of amino acids and proteins, the structure and activity of nitrogen-methylated peptides, local surface plasmon resonance and electrochemical biosensing systems for analyzing functional peptides, atomic force microscopy of proteins, the role of cysteine, quantitative mass spectrometry-based proteomics, and bioinformatics tools for detecting post-translational modifications in mass spectrometry data.
For the third edition the 2002 second edition has been updated and expanded by 57 chapters, which are spread throughout the book but primarily clustered in the section on post-translational modifications and so reflect the increasing importance of these modifications in the understanding of protein function.
The broad scope of proteomics might perhaps be broken down into six types of questions that are addressed in some form: (1) identification of individual proteins, (2) recognition of protein interactions, (3) relative quantitation to distinguish differential expression of proteins, (4) characterization of post-translational modifications, (5) qualitative or quantitative measurements at high spatial and/or temporal resolution to address the dynamics of protein interactions, and (6) formulation of models based on results from components 1-5.
Dass starts with the basics of operation and then covers modes of ionization, mass analysis and ion detection, tandem mass spectrometry, hyphenated separation techniques, organic mass spectrometry, inorganic mass spectrometry, structure determination of proteins and peptides and their post-translational modifications, higher order structures, oligosaccharides, characterizations of lipids, and structure determination of oligonucleotides.
