Ionization and molecular weight (MW) determination of megadalton size plasmid DNA has been achieved using electrospray ionization (ESI) with Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance (FTICR) mass spectrometry. DNA molecules were shown to remain intact through electrospray ionization by collection on a specially prepared surface, followed by agarose gel(More)
Tandem mass spectrometry has been used to obtain information related to portions of the primary sequence for an intact protein, bovine ribonuclease A. Multiply charged molecular ions, generated by electrospray ionization, were collisionally dissociated at low energies in a triple quadrupole mass spectrometer to yield singly and multiply charged fragment(More)
In two experiments, college students performed a feature-positive or a feature-negative discrimination task based on colors or symbols and were then transferred to a feature-positive or feature-negative discrimination based on the other stimulus dimension (symbols-colors, colors-symbols). Initial task results yielded a substantial feature-positive effect(More)
Two new nucleosides have been identified in unfractionated transfer RNA of two thermophilic bacteria, Thermodesulfobacterium commune, and Thermotoga maritima, six hyperthermophilic archaea, including Pyrobaculum islandicum, Pyrococcus furiosus and Thermococcus sp. and two mesophilic archaea, Methanococcus vannielii and Methanolobus tindarius. Structures(More)
Directly combined high performance liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC/MS) has been studied as a method of analysis of heterocyclic aromatic mutagens in cooked foods, in the parts per billion concentration range. Identification and semiquantitative estimation of mutagens is based on accurate measurement of chromatographic retention (k') and(More)
We have incorporated Fe2+ into the high-affinity metal-ion-binding site of actin. By supplying the system with oxygen from air and a reductant (dithiothreitol or ascorbate), we have induced free-radical generation, with the intent of causing peptide cleavage at the metal-ion-binding site. By analysis of the resulting fragments from actin in the F-form, we(More)
Real-time access to large scientific and heterogeneous environmental data has prompted the need for the development of tools allowing efficient data storage, data compression, interactive data browsing, data manipulation, data visualization, searching, and downloading. In this paper we discuss some of the implementation requirements involved in the design(More)
