Desorption electrospray ionization (DESI)
Desorption electrospray ionization (DESI) mass spectrometry, a revolutionary technique for analyzing small molecules, can now be used to analyze proteins and noncovalent protein complexes as large as 150 kilodaltons (Anal. Chem., DOI: 10.1021/ac201390w).
This collaborative work was recently completed by Dr. Joseph A. Loo at UCLA, Dr. Hao Chen of this department and coworkers, which was reported by Chemical & Engineering News as a Science and Technology Concentrateweb link
Graduate student Zhixin Miao in Dr. Chen's group is one of the coauthors of this published article.
