SEMM Technological Roundtable: "Structural and Conformational Proteomics and their Impact in Life Science"

December 3, 2021 – h. 2.45 p.m.

Structural and conformational mass spectrometry (MS) proteomics methods are undergoing an explosion in their application to study proteins and protein complexes, thanks to its current applicability to many different protein types, including not only structured proteins, but also particularly challenging ones, such as intrinsically disordered proteins, integral membrane proteins and multiprotein complexes.

Structural MS methods are able to capture transient interactions, can be used to study proteins and complexes up to the megadalton range, and can discern interactions in complex mixtures such as whole cell lysates and even intact cells. In native MS analysis large biomolecules and complexes are analyzed using experimental conditions so mild that their non-covalent interactions, native state and associated biological functionality are preserved.  

These methods coupled other technologies such as cryo-electron microscopy provide a knowledge base that is changing the face of structural biology, impacting various disciplines in life science, from medicinal chemistry, molecular pharmacology to neurobiology, developmental biology, immunology and molecular medicine.
