Identification of Posttranslational Modification by Mass Spectrometry
- 2.3k Downloads
Many chemically distinct types of posttranslational modification of proteins are known. These include the wide variety of prosthetic groups at enzymes’ active sites, acylations at the N- and the C-terminus and at internal sites in proteins. In this chapter, the examples of mass-spectrometry techniques employed for analysis of glycosylation and disulphide bonds are given. Techniques for identification of sites of phosphorylation are in Chapter 44.
