A Novel High-Precision Method for Diagnosing Hyperparathyroidism

Executive SummaryParathyroid hormone (PTH) is a critical regulator of circulating calcium concentration in blood plasma. Maintaining normal circulating calcium levels is essential for cell signaling and bone metabolism. Hyperparathyroidism due to excessive secretion of PTH disrupts these signaling networks. Current methods of quantifying PTH in plasma...

Femtosecond Laser System for Biological Mass Spectrometry

Executive SummaryMass spectrometry is a key analytical tool for analyzing proteins and metabolites. Typically, complex protein mixtures or individual proteins are processed and then introduced to the mass spectrometer. Peptide sequence information is obtained via subjecting individual ions to fragmentation. Protein identification is achieved by database...
