Microwave-assisted (MW) reactions are of special interest to the chemical community due to faster reaction times, cleaner reactions and higher product yields. The adaptation of MW to solid phase peptide synthesis resulted in spectacular syntheses of difficult peptides. In the case of Merrifield support, used frequently in synthesis of special peptides, the(More)
A series of model peptides in the form of quaternary ammonium salts at the N-terminus was efficiently prepared by the solid-phase synthesis. Tandem mass spectrometric analysis of the peptide quaternary ammonium derivatives was shown to provide sequence confirmation and enhanced detection. We designed the 2-(1,4-diazabicyclo[2.2.2] octylammonium)acetyl(More)
Derivatization of peptides as quaternary ammonium salts (QAS) is a promising method for sensitive detection by electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry (Cydzik et al. J. Pept. Sci. 2011, 17, 445-453). The peptides derivatized by QAS at their N-termini undergo fragmentation according to the two competing mechanisms - charge remote (ChR) and charge(More)
The fragmentation of peptides containing quaternary ammonium group, but lacking easily mobilizable protons, was examined with the aid of deuterium-labeled analogs and quantum-chemical modeling. The fragmentation of oligoproline containing quaternary ammonium group involves the mobilization of hydrogens localized at α- and γ- or δ-carbon atoms in the(More)
A rapid and straightforward method for high-throughput analysis of single resin beads from one-bead-one-compound combinatorial libraries with high resolution electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry (HR ESI-MS/MS) is presented. The application of an efficient method of peptide derivatization by quaternary ammonium salts (QAS) formation increases(More)
Derivatization of peptides as quaternary ammonium salts (QAS) is a known method for sensitive detection by electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry. Hydrogens at α-carbon atom in N,N,N-trialkylglycine residue can be easily exchanged by deuterons. The exchange reaction is base-catalyzed and is dramatically slow at lower pH. Introduced deuterons are(More)
Recently, we developed a selective and efficient method of hydrogen-deuterium exchange (HDX) at the α-carbon (α-C) of sarcosine residue (N-methylglycine) in model peptides [Bąchor et al. J. Mass Spectrom. 2014, 49, 43]. Here, we report the influence of quaternary ammonium (QA) group on HDX at the α-C of sarcosine and N-methylalanine in peptides. The(More)
Improving the sensitivity of detection and fragmentation of peptides to provide reliable sequencing of peptides is an important goal of mass spectrometric analysis. Peptides derivatized by bicyclic quaternary ammonium ionization tags: 1-azabicyclo[2.2.2]octane (ABCO) or 1,4-diazabicyclo[2.2.2]octane (DABCO), are characterized by an increased detection(More)
Mass spectrometric analysis of trace amounts of peptides may be problematic due to the insufficient ionization efficiency resulting in limited sensitivity. One of the possible ways to overcome this problem is the application of ionization enhancers. Herein we developed new ionization markers based on 2,4,6-triphenylpyridinium and 2,4,6-trimethylpyridinium(More)
A novel class of ionization tags, based on 5-azoniaspiro[4.4]nonyl (ASN+) scaffold were designed for improved analysis of peptides by electrospray tandem mass spectrometry (ESI-MS/MS). A new labeling agent, 1-{[3-oxo-3-(pentafluorophenoxy)propyl]carbamoyl}-5-azoniaspiro[4.4]nonane, was developed to react with amine and/or thiol group-containing peptides.(More)
