Applications of Mass Photometry at Biortus
Mass photometry (MP) is a revolutionary way to analyze molecules. MP measures light scattering of single particles landing onto a glass microscope slide, which is used to rapidly determine mass, oligomeric state, and heterogeneity of a wide range of macromolecules and complexes in solution. Measurements occur under equilibrium and native conditions.
GPCRs represent the largest family encoded by the human genome, comprising 3% with 826 members. Human GPCRs are split into four major classes: A, B, C, and F. GPCRs respond to a wide variety of stimuli, ranging from photons to small proteins.
