PMSF Research on the Cover of JBC

In a new paper (Swati Dey, Justin North, Jaya sriam, Bradly Evans and F. Robert Tabita, In Vivo Studies in Rhodospirillum rubrum Indicate that Ribulose-1,5,bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (Rubisco) Catalyzes Two Obligatorily Required and Physiologically Significant Reactions for Distinct Carbon and Sulfur Metabolic Pathways" 2015 Journal of Biological Chemistry 290(52):30658-30668) the PMSF's LTQ-Orbitrap was used in an untargeted metabolomics experiment to demonstrate Rubisco, the most abundant enzyme on earth is required for methionine salvage and methyl cysteine production in a photosynthetic bacterium, Rhodospirilum rubrum.  This work is featured on the cover of a December issue.

New! 6500 QTRAP with SelexION and Eksigent MicroLC

We are glad to announce that we have added a new instrument available for full-service and self-service usage options.  The 6500 QTRAP acquisition was made possible by National Science Foundation Grant No. DBI-1427621 as part of the Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) program.  This instrument is best suited to targeted quantitation projects and those that require separation of isobars (compounds that have the same mass).  Separation of isobars is possible by using the SelexION cell which is a type of ion mobility spectrometer that can separate compounds based on shape.  Contact us for more information
