For characterization of sequence and posttranslational modifications, molecular and fragment ion mass data from ionizing and dissociating a protein in the mass spectrometer are far more specific than are masses of peptides from the protein's digestion. We extend the approximately 500-residue, approximately 50-kilodalton (kD) dissociation limitation of this(More)
A recently developed methodology for the characterization of complex proteomes, top-down Fourier transform mass spectrometry (FTMS), is applied for the first time to a plant proteome, that of the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana. Of the 3000 proteins predicted by the genome sequence, 97 were recently identified in two separate "bottom-up" mass spectrometry(More)
