HUPO 2018

Joost Snijder is an invited speaker in the ‘New Technological Advancements in Proteomics’ session at HUPO 2018. He will present his work on integrating mass spectrometry and electron microscopy data to study viral glycoproteins and antibody interactions.

HUPO 2018 will take place between September 30th and October 3th in Orlando, Florida, USA.

More information can be found on the HUPO 2018 website.


Mapping membrane protein palmitoylation by native mass spectrometry

Palmitoylation of membrane proteins can be monitored by native mass spectrometry. A report from the labs of Piet Gros and Albert Heck of Utrecht University in The Netherlands, published today in Nature Communications, shows how native MS can be utilized to understand the post-translational modification in membrane proteins. The team demonstrates that any cysteine within 8 Å of the membrane gets palmitoylated, without the requirement for a specific sequence motif. The findings shed light on the biochemical requirements for membrane protein palmitoylation and could be of particular interest to protein design and engineering.

Integrating mass spectrometry and cryo electron microscopy for structural biology

The latest issue of Science Magazine contains a collection of articles on integrative structural biology, sponsored by Thermo Scientific, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of mass spectrometers and electron microscopes.

The collection features articles about the roles of mass spectrometry and cryo electron microscopy as complementary techniques in structural biology. It includes a recent Science paper by Joost Snijder on the biological clock of cyanobacteria, as well as an interview with his PhD advisor Albert Heck, discussing the role of mass spec in solving the structure of one of the worlds most ancient biological time-keeping mechanisms.

The collection contains many additional articles that are of interest to clients of Snijder Bioscience and can be accessed for free following this link.
