Techniques in Protein Chemistry V highlights current methods in peptide and protein mass spectrometry, sequence and amino acid analysis, fragmentations, separations, protein folding and modeling, peptide and protein NMR, and peptide synthesis. This volume emerged from the manuscripts presented at the Seventh Symposium of the Protein Society, held in San Diego on July 24-28, 1993.

This volume is organized into eight parts encompassing 61 chapters. The first part surveys the peptide and protein characterization, detection, and analysis by mass spectrometry. The subsequent parts describe the structural characterization and analysis of posttranslational processing events, as well as the characterization of protein and amino acid sequences using several analytical techniques. Other parts explore other analytical methods for peptide and protein separations; some aspects involved in protein design and functional domain analysis; and the evaluation of protein conformation, folding, and modeling. The last parts contain research papers on NMR analysis of peptide and protein solution structures. These parts also look into topics related to peptide synthesis and peptide libraries.

This book is intended primarily for protein and analytical chemists.
