Chemical Proteomics

Edited by Ho Jeong Kwon and Peter Karuso

Proteomics is a relatively new field of research that evolved from electrophoresis and the desire to investigate proteins on a genome-wide basis.  More recently the development of Chemical Proteomics marks the crossing of proteomics into the discipline of chemistry and is quickly becoming an integrated research engine that bridges the hurdle of identifying protein targets of biologically active small molecules with unknown modes of action. Chemical proteomics provides a high-throughput platform for exploring drug-target-phenotype relationships required for functional proteomics and rapid drug discovery. These efforts are illuminating a new paradigm in drug discovery where a priori knowledge of a new chemical entity’s mode of action is not required for the rapid isolation of novel targets.

Proteome Science highlights the emergence of this new and dynamic field with a special issue focused on chemical proteomics methods and their applications.
