This volume presents a compilation of experimental methods and principles, with detailed protocols and examples. Techniques which have demonstrated value in problem-solving are included. Intended for biochemists, cell biologists, microbiologists, pharmacologists, biomedical scientists, biophysicists, analytical chemists, and physiologists, this book focuses on mass spectrometry. Topics discussed include the methods of ionization, liquid chromatography, continuous flow fast atom bombardment mass spectrometry, collision-induced dissociation, enzymatic and chemical digestion of proteins, and constituents of nucleic acids. Other titles in this series include Guide to Yeast Genetics and Molecular Biology and Retinoids, Part B: Cell Differentiation and Clinical Applications.
Biochemists, analytical and organic chemists, biophysicists, molecular biologists, and physical and pharmaceutical chemists.

@from:Praise for the Volume @qu:"This volume will be a most welcome addition to the shelves of those working with mass spectrometry (MS) applications... The book is useful and comprehensive, offering a concise treatment of experimental principles along with detailed descriptions of specific methods... This book is a gold mine of information. The standards of excellence established in the Methods in Enzymology series have been continued in this volume. The 70 authors and the editor are to be congratulated." @source:--SPECTROSCOPY @qu:"The Methods in Enzymology series has a well-established reputation for producing carefully edited, authoritative, practical summaries of current research by experts in various specialty fields. J.A. McCloskey has continued that high standard in his selection of 70 scientists who have written 47 chapters... occupies a niche not filled previously by any single publication in the field... There are six very useful appendices to help guarantee that this volume will find a permanent home close to the operator of mass spectrometer (elemental mass and abundance data, ions in 11 defined reference materials for different types of ionization, characteristic spectra of seven FAB matrices, calculation of isotopic abundance distributions, nomenclature for peptide fragment ions, and residue masses for peptides). In summary, this book is an extremely valuable resource for the practicing mass spectroscopist. Due to the inclusion of general introductory material, it would be an excellent text for a course in biological mass spectrometry directed toward graduate students in chemistry or biochemistry." @source:--BOOK REVIEWS @from:Praise for the Series @qu:"The Methods in Enzymology series represents the gold-standard." @source:--NEUROSCIENCE @qu:"Incomparably useful." @source:--ANALYTICAL
