Linking structural change with functional regulation-insights from mass spectrometry.
A wide range of biophysical approaches has been applied to structural biology, all with the same overall goal-to understand the molecular machines that allow cells to function. While knowledge of the identity and composition of component protein subunits is an important foundation for understanding these macromolecular complexes it has become increasingly clear that knowledge of the exact composition alone is insufficient for understanding dynamic interactions and regulatory mechanisms. In th...Expand abstract
