The sensitivity of mass spectrometry combined with the separatory power of high-performance liquid chromatography was used to investigate the venom of individual cone shells, This analysis has revealed that cone venoms contain a complex mixture of peptides which vary quantitatively and qualitatively both between and within species, A differential alkylation procedure followed by tandem mass spectrometric analysis can be used to determine the disulfide bond connectivity in these small, cysteine… 
High‐Performance Liquid Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry in Peptide and Protein Analysis
The experimental parameters that are important in HPLC/MS are discussed and the considerable progress made in ESI source design and capillary HP LC/MS is discussed.
Characterization of Marine Toxins by Means of Liquid Chromatography — Electrospray Ionization — Mass Spectrometry
In a previous review on application of mass spectrometric methods to the analysis of natural and anthropogenic marine contaminants (Vincenti 1997), it was advanced that rapid development and
Electrospray liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry fingerprinting of Acanthophis (death adder) venoms: taxonomic and toxinological implications.
Liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry (LC/MS) analysis has revealed a much greater diversity in venom composition, including the presence of molecules of novel molecular weights that may represent a new class of venom component.
Physico-chemical characterization and synthesis of neuronally active α-conotoxins
The high speciFIcity of alpha-conotoxins for different neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptors makes them important probes for dissecting receptor subtype selectivity and for activity assessment and structure-activity relationship studies.
Venomics: unravelling the complexity of animal venoms with mass spectrometry.
The combined application of LC-MALDI separation with mass fingerprinting and ISD fragmentation for the determination of structural and pharmacological classes of peptides in complex spider venoms serves as the basis for the full investigation of complex spider venom proteomes, in combination with cDNA analysis.
A comparison of matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight and liquid chromatography electrospray ionization mass spectrometry methods for the analysis of crude tarantula venoms in the Pterinochilus group.
It is demonstrated that both methodologies can be successfully applied to tarantula venom characterization, and Coupling of ESI-MS with HPLC separation afforded a new dimension in venom analysis, with clear discrimination between components of similar Mr and gave a finer picture of venom composition, number of molecular species and molecular weight distribution.
Australian funnel-web spider venom analyzed with on-line RP-HPLC techniques.
These qualities have been found and continue to be advanced in the technique high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), in particular reversed-phase HPLC (RP-HPLC).
Mass fingerprinting of toxic fractions from the venom of the Indian red scorpion, Mesobuthus tamulus: biotope-specific variation in the expression of venom peptides.
Using mass spectrometry, biotope-specific variation in the expression of peptides from scorpions collected from these two distinct areas of Maharastra is shown.
