Comprehensive Characterization of Proteins using Novel Orbitrap Tribrid MS

This webinar demonstrates the advantages of using a novel Orbitrap mass spectrometer for qualitative and quantitative PTM analysis. The novel arrangement of the three mass analyzers plus advances in software not only increases the rate of high quality ETD spectra, but also the ease of routinely obtaining high quality ETD data.

Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy has been used to demonstrate how one segment of an important regulatory protein, nucleophosmin 1 (NPM1), helps it to fulfil several roles, including tumour suppression, according to researchers at St Jude Children's Research Hospital, Memphis, Tennessee and the Medical Research Council Laboratory of Molecular Biology, in Cambridge, UK. The findings could have implications for the development of novel anticancer drugs.

Berylliosis: X-ray clues to lung disease

New clues as to why inhalation of dust containing the group II metal, beryllium, causes a deadly immune response in the lungs of some people have emerged from X-ray diffraction, genetic, molecular binding and electrostatic studies. The research shows that a single amino acid change present in one lung protein, HLA-DP2, creates a pocket able to bind beryllium and sodium ions simultaneously and trigger the often lethal allergic disease berylliosis.

A functional data approach has been applied to define the calibration curve and the limits of quantitation from mass spectrometric data, drawing on existing smoothing methods.
