"Protein structures by mass spectrometry - emerging prospects"
Recent results suggest the possibility that proteomics can be leveraged as a structural biology tool that can even provide information from the native environment. Structural information can be converted into mass by using chemical cross-linking agents to cause new covalent bonds that can be used as distance restraints to inform on the structure. How this works and where the current limitations reside will be discussed. The possibility of solving structures of proteins in action is becoming real.
