The gas-phase deprotonation reactions of multiply protonated ubiquitin ions have been studied in a Fourier-transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometer. Electrospray ionization was used to generate ubiquitin ions with attachment of 7-13 protons. Rate constants were measured for the reactions of these protein ions with four amines: n-propylamine,(More)
Treatment of choice for the internal carotid artery dissection (ICAD) is anticoagulation for three to 6 months. Endovascular procedures may be a promising alternative for patients (pts) with haemodynamic impairment, recurrent ischaemic symptoms or symptomatic pseudoaneurysms. Thus, the purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of carotid(More)
Toward a goal of dideoxy sequencing DNA utilizing electrophore labels, we prepared four electrophore-labeled DNA oligonucleotide primers. Each primer has a different electrophore and DNA sequence but a common glycol keto (alpha,beta-dihydroxyketo) release group. Cleavage of this latter group by either periodate oxidation or a thermal retroaldol reaction(More)
A new pulsed-gas glow discharge (GD) source has been developed for use with an external ion source Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance (FTICR) mass spectrometer. With pulsed argon gas introduction into the GD source, the gas load and pressure in the mass analyzer region were greatly reduced; this resulted in improved mass resolution. Mass resolution(More)
