Probing metal ion binding and conformational properties of the colicin E9 endonuclease by electrospray ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry
KLEANTHOUS, COLIN; VAN DEN BREMER, EWALD T.J.; JISKOOT, WIM; James, Richard; Moore, Geoffrey R.; HECK, ALBERT J.R.; MAIER, CLAUDIA S.;
Nano-electrospray ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) was used to study the conformational consequences of metal ion binding to the colicin E9 endonuclease (E9 DNase) by taking advantage of the unique capability of ESI-MS to allow simultaneous assessmen... View more
