Phage 812 is a polyvalent phage with a very broad host range in the genus Staphylococcus, which makes it a suitable candidate for phage therapy of staphylococcal infections. This proteomic study, combining the results of both 1-DE and 2-DE followed by PMF, led to the identification of 24 virion proteins. Twenty new proteins, not yet identified by proteome(More)
An approach of sample introduction for inductively coupled mass spectrometry (ICPMS), diode laser thermal vaporization (DLTV) is described. The method allows quantitative determination of metals in submicroliter volumes of liquid samples. Laser power is sufficient to induce pyrolysis of a suitable substrate with the deposited sample leading to aerosol(More)
We examined changes in a poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) coating by continuously monitoring the electroosmotic flow (EOF) in a fused-silica capillary during electrophoresis. An imaging CCD camera was used to follow the motion of a fluorescent neutral marker zone along the length of the capillary. The PEO coating was shown to reduce the velocity of EOF by more(More)
In this work, a new interface for continuous on-line MALDI-TOF MS is presented. The sample, mixed with a suitable matrix, was transported into the evacuated source chamber of the mass spectrometer at liquid flow rates of 100-400 nL/min. The liquid sample matrix was deposited on a rotating quartz wheel and transported to the repeller, where laser desorption(More)
The relationship between gushing and antifungal peptides in barley and malt kernels was examined for five barley varieties produced in the Czech Republic with four conditions of infection and treatment. Proteome changes during pathogen-seed interaction were observed with SDS-PAGE and MALDI-TOF MS. These methods were applied as a fast screening for observing(More)
High-resolution capillary electrophoresis has been coupled to MALDI-TOF and TOF/TOF MS through off-line vacuum deposition onto standard stainless steel MALDI targets. This off-line approach allowed the decoupling of the separation from the MS analysis, thus allowing each to be independently optimized in terms of time. Using BSA tryptic digest as a model(More)
A novel off-line coupling of capillary electrophoresis (CE) and inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICPMS) is reported here. The coupling interface is based on the connection of a separation capillary to a deposition capillary via a liquid junction maintaining high separation efficiency and sample utilization due to the self-focusing effect and(More)
An improved vacuum deposition interface for coupling capillary electrophoresis with MALDI-TOF MS has been developed. Liquid samples consisting of analyte and matrix were deposited on a moving tape in the evacuated source chamber of a TOF mass spectrometer, enabling 24 h of uninterrupted analysis. The vacuum deposition procedure was compared with the(More)
We introduce a stable isotope labeling approach for glycopeptides that allows a specific glycosylation site in a protein to be quantitatively evaluated using mass spectrometry. Succinic anhydride is used to specifically label primary amino groups of the peptide portion of the glycopeptides. The heavy form (D4(13)C4) provides an 8 Da mass increment over the(More)
