Analysis of protein sequences and protein complexes by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry.

Abstract : In the context of proteome analysis, matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry (MALDI-MS) can fulfil the two tasks of primary structure verification and protein identification. As an illustration of the first of these tasks, the sequence of Eschericha coli isoleucyl-tRNA synthetase, a protein with 15 reported sequence conflicts, has been established by means of MALDI mass mapping. The identification of mitochondrial proteins participating in a yeast supramolecular complex exhibiting NADH dehydrogenase activity highlights the performances of MALDI-MS for the second task. The spectral suppression phenomenon occurring for complex peptide mixtures analysed by MALDI is discussed, as well as the role of post-source decay analysis for confident protein identification.
