The potential of matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization (MALDI) and MALDI-post-source decay (PSD) time-of-flight mass spectrometry for the characterization of peptides and proteins is discussed. Recent instrumental developments provide for levels of sensitivity and accuracy that make these techniques major analytical tools for proteome analysis. New(More)
By the incorporation of delayed extraction (DE) into matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry a dramatic improvement of performance with respect to sensitivity, mass resolution and mass accuracy of precursor ions up to approximately 10 kDa has been achieved. Since DE reduces collisional in-source activation to a large(More)
It was recently shown that mycobacterial lipoarabinomannan (LAM) can be classified into two types (Chatterjee, D., Lowell, K., Rivoire B., McNeil M. R., and Brennan, P. J. (1992) J. Biol. Chem. 267, 6234-6239) according to the presence or absence of mannosyl residues (Manp) located at the nonreducing end of the oligoarabinosyl side chains. These two types(More)
Dissected tissue pieces of the pituitary pars intermedia from the amphibian Xenopus laevis was directly subjected to matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) mass analysis. The obtained MALDI peptide profile revealed both previously known and unexpected processing products of the proopiomelanocortin gene. Mass spectrometric peptide sequencing of(More)
In this paper, we report on the identification of an unexpected acylation that occurred on the solid phase when a peptide containing an unprotected lysyl and a tosyl-protected arginyl residue was treated with a large excess of isonicotinyl p-nitrophenylcarbonate. NMR and matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionisation -post-source decay analysis of the purified(More)
This communication describes a representation of images as a set of edges characterized by their position and orientation. This representation allows the comparison of two images and the computation of their similarity. The first step in this computation of similarity is the seach of a geometrical basis of the two dimensional space where the two images are(More)
