Hydrogen-Deuterium Exchange Mass Spectrometry: A Valuable Tool for the Biopharmaceutical Industry

Many biopharmaceutical companies have established hydrogen-deuterium exchange mass spectrometry (HDX-MS) laboratories. These facilities contribute to the research of drug mechanisms, of protein-ligand interactions, and of determinations of protein functional changes induced by environmental and post-translational modifications. Evaluations of HDX-MS data can determine protein-ligand interactions in terms of three-dimensional protein structure, and it can establish similarity among different glycoproteins. To develop a HDX-MS program that is responsive to the needs of the biopharmaceutical industry, our NIST laboratory has conducted research 1) that is determining the interlaboratory reproducibility of HDX-MS; 2) that introduces electron transfer dissociation (ETD) into HDX-MS, resulting in the ability to distinguish the effects of the glycan structure upon ligand binding; and 3) that accelerates elucidation of regulating mechanisms in proteins.

September's meeting is sponsored by ThermoFIsher Scientific.
