Waters World Center of Innovation in Hydrogen/Deuterium Exchange Mass Spectrometry



The Anand research group’s interests are in uncovering dynamics of cellular macromolecular assemblies. Focus areas include whole viral particle dynamics, capsid metastability and viral host entry, Second messenger (cyclic nucelotide) signaling and regulation, Transmembrane signaling and Two-component signal transduction. Our primary tool to probe protein dynamics is structural mass spectrometry (MS) and includes amide hydrogen/deuterium exchange mass spectrometry (HDX-MS), ion mobility mass spectrometry (IM-MS), cross-linking, native MS together with proteomics and biophysical approaches. Allostery forms a common theme of our research and our goal is to integrate protein dynamics with biochemistry.
