Essential amino acids, found in abundance in high-quality dietary protein, are required daily by hospitalized patients and healthy persons to maintain the dynamic process of protein metabolism. One method for assessing dietary protein quality is by determining a diet's chemical score, ie, the ratio of a gram of the limiting amino acid in a test diet to the(More)
The electrospray ionisation-ion-trap mass spectrometry (ESI-MS(n)) of selected drug compounds with amine-containing side chains has been investigated. Certain characteristic in-source fragmentations have been observed for these molecules. Sequential product ion fragmentation experiments (MS(n)) have been performed in order to elucidate the degradation(More)
The electrospray ionisation ion trap tandem mass spectrometry (ESI-MS(n)) of selected antidepressant drugs, i.e., citalopram, fluoxetine, mirtazapine, paroxetine, sertraline, and venlafaxine, has been investigated. Sequential product ion fragmentation experiments (MS(n)) have been performed in order to elucidate the degradation pathways for the [M+H](+)(More)
