Metabolomic analyses are revealing that cells contain many more compounds than are listed in classic biochemical maps. Many of these new compounds are the products of catalysis by as-yet-unidentified enzymes. I will describe our successful application of liquid-chromatography mass spectrometry to discover new enzymes. We complement this discovery work with a variety of mass spectrometric and genetic approaches to determine the roles of these new enzymes in cellular growth and metabolism.
