Analytical tool that is used to measure the mass-to-charge-ration of one or more molecules present in a given sample is mass spectrometry. Mass spectrometry is used to identify the unknown compound by determining the molecular weight. This has become an indispensable tool in the field of proteomics. A novel development of this technique is the electron-transfer dissociation, has led to the study of protein expression, interaction, and modification. Scientist use mass spectrometry to detect, separate and identify proteins that cause certain disease, specific to toxins and to forecast carcinogenicity along with 2D gel electrophoresis. Biomarkers can be identified using this toxicoproteomics for these environmental pollutants.
