Identification of Microorganisms by Mass Spectrometry by Charles L. Wilkins, Jackson O. Lay

By Charles L. Wilkins, Jackson O. Lay

A multidisciplinary method of knowing the basics of mass spectrometry for bacterial analysis

From chemotaxonomy to characterization of special proteins, id of Microorganisms by way of Mass Spectrometry presents an summary of either well-established and state of the art mass spectrometry options for picking microorganisms. an important device for microbiologists, health and wellbeing pros, and analytical chemists, the textual content is designed to assist scientists decide on the best concepts to be used in biomedical, biochemical, pharmaceutical, and bioterror safeguard applications.

given that microbiological purposes of mass spectrometry require a easy figuring out of either microbiology and analytical chemistry, the editors have integrated fabric from either disciplines in order that readers from both box will come to appreciate the mandatory ideas of the opposite. that includes contributions from essentially the most well-known specialists in either fields, this quantity offers particular examples of basic equipment in addition to techniques built within the final decade, including:
* Metastable atom bombardment pyrolysis mass spectrometry
* Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry (MALDI)
* MALDI time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) of intact bacteria
* High-resolution Fourier rework mass spectrometry (FTMS)
* Electrospray ionization (ESI) mass spectrometry

id of Microorganisms by means of Mass Spectrometry represents the main accomplished and up to date paintings at the subject at the moment to be had. it really is liberally illustrated with figures and tables and covers each element of spectrometric identity of microorganisms, together with experimental approaches, numerous technique of pattern guidance, info research, and interpretation of advanced mass spectral information.

Inhibitors of Cyclin-dependent Kinases as Anti-tumor Agents (Enzyme Inhibitors Series)

One of many few books to hide all points of cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs), Inhibitors of Cyclin-dependent Kinases as Anti-tumor brokers presents an outline of CDKs as molecular and useful entities, their involvement in numerous affliction methods, and their strength for pharmacological modulation.

Tinkering: The Microevolution of Development: Novartis Foundation Symposium 284

A lot fresh study in evolutionary developmental biology has eager about the beginning of recent physique plans. in spite of the fact that, such a lot evolutionary switch on the inhabitants and species point includes tinkering: small-scale changes in developmental pathways inside of a unmarried physique plan. Such microevolutionary occasions were good studied on a inhabitants genetic point and from the viewpoint of adaptive phenotypic evolution, yet their developmental mechanisms stay poorly studied.
