FT-ICR mass spectrometry in the drug discovery process.

Zhang, Juan, Mccombie, Gregor, Guenat, Christian and Knochenmuss, Richard (2005) FT-ICR mass spectrometry in the drug discovery process. Drug Discovery Today, 10 (9). pp. 635-642. ISSN 1359-6446


The high mass accuracy and resolution of Fourier transform (FT)-ion cyclotron resonance (ICR) mass spectrometry are making it an increasingly useful tool in drug discovery and development. The basics of FT-ICR are described here, including modern ion sources and fragmentation methods. Although FT-ICR is not a high-throughput method in the traditional sense, previously difficult and complex problems are being efficiently approached using steadily improving instruments and magnets. Applications are surveyed in fields such as proteomics, metabonomics, natural product analysis and non-covalent complexes.
