Developments in matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization peptide mass spectrometry.

Author information

Protein and Peptides, EMBL, Heidelberg, Germany.


Most characteristics of matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) are ideal for the analysis of biomolecules. New preparation techniques have dramatically increased mass accuracy and resolution, making MALDI a high-performance mass spectrometric technique for peptide mass analysis. Attempts to obtain amino acid sequence information by MALDI have been partially successful. The technique has been put to novel uses in protein primary structure characterization.
