Paper Abstract

Database searching with tandem mass spectra has been demonstrated as a powerful method to correlate peptides and proteins to gene sequences for identification. In this study preliminary data is shown for extending the cross-correlation database searching method to multi-stage mass spectra of polypeptides. This method may provide a means to directly identify large polypeptides or proteins without the necessity of proteolytic hydrolysis to produce peptides amenable to tandem mass spectrometry.
