Investigating viral structure, function and dynamics with mass spectrometry

Chapter

Abstract

  • The development of soft ionization techniques has made it possible to examine biological macromolecules using mass spectrometry. Proteomic approaches have been developed which are capable of identifying and chemically characterizing a wide variety of biological molecules in an efficient manner. A variety of mass spectroscopic experimental approaches have been developed which allow the investigator to obtain information about protein structure, dynamics and protein/protein interactions. This review focuses on the application of these techniques to the study of viral replication.
