The past year has seen greatly increased acceptance and application of the analytical capabilities of mass spectrometry by the biochemical community. The technique has been used to provide accurate mass determinations of non-covalently bound protein complexes, rapid mapping of molecular weights of altered peptides in protease digests, sequencing by collisional activation in tandem mass spectrometry, characterization of glycosylation and other modifications, and quantitation of peptides used in clinical diagnostics.
