HDX-MS in den Lebenswissenschaften

Wissenschaft · Methoden Wasserstoff-Deuterium-Austausch-Massenspektrometrie


In-depth structural and mechanistic analysis of biomolecular complexes is crucial for modern life sciences. Here we give an overview on hydrogendeuterium exchange mass spectrometry (HDX-MS) as an attractive tool to study the dynamic and structural features of proteins and their complexes.
