Webinar Description:

The course will introduce covalent labeling mass spectrometry (CL-MS) to scientific professionals who are interested in learning about techniques to determine protein structure and mechanism of action in protein-ligand binding. CL-MS is recognized as an important option for determining antibody epitopes for intellectual property filings as well as understanding paratopes for protein engineering. Also, CL-MS can be used to establish biosimilarity to innovator drugs. CL-MS provides quantitative structural information on the interactions of solvent accessible side-chains that other protocols don’t provide and is ideal for studies on difficult complexes (including membrane proteins) where other techniques fail, while using picomoles of sample.

Learning Objectives:

  • To gain an understanding of CL-MS vs. alternatives for protein structure assessment
  • To understand chemistry of labeling of solvent accessible side chains in CL-MS
  • To learn about applications of CL-MS to drug development problems in industry
  • To learn about NeoProteomics’ turnkey service for mAb epitope and paratope characterization using CL-MS
  • To understand how to integrate CL-MS with other data for integrated assessments of protein structure
