Aminopeptidases catalyze the cleavage of amino acids from the amino terminus of protein or peptide substrates. Although some aminopeptidase activities have been found in plant chloroplasts, the identity of these proteins remains unclear. In this work, we report the purification to apparent homogeneity of a soluble aminopeptidase from isolated barley(More)
Electrospray ionization (ESI) of peptides and proteins produces a series of multiply charged ions with a mass/charge (m/z) ratio between 500 and 2000. The resulting mass spectra are crowded by these multiple charge values for each molecular mass and an isotopic cluster for each nominal m/z value. Here, we report a new algorithm simultaneously to deconvolute(More)
Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization reflector time-of-flight (MALDI-reTOF) and electrospray ionization (ESI) mass spectrometry (MS) have become essential tools for the characterization of peptides and proteins. Whereas ESI in combination with a triple quadrupole analyzer allows product ion, precursor ion, and neutral loss analyses, MALDI-reTOF(More)
