About this book


The majority of all proteins undergo co- and/or post-translational modifications, crucially altering physical and chemical properties, folding, conformation distribution, stability, activity, and, consequently, the function of the proteins.  In Post-translational Modifications of Proteins: Tools for Functional Proteomics, Second Edition, this important area of research is brought up-to-date by the leading scientists in the field.  This compilation of detailed protocols focuses on protein function, proteome research and characterization of pharmaceutical proteins, while following the successful format of the Methods in Molecular Biology™ series. Each chapter provides a brief introduction to the topic, step-by-step laboratory protocols, lists of the necessary equipment and reagents, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Comprehensive and cutting edge, Post-translational Modifications of Proteins: Tools for Functional Proteomics, Second Edition serves as practical guide for researchers working in the field of protein structure-function relationships and the rapidly growing field of proteomics, as well as scientists in the pharmaceutical industries.
