Herein, we present the first example of charge state specific facile gas-phase cleavage of an aspartic acid-methionine peptide linkage. This cleavage (Asp 75-Met 76) was observed in the alpha-chain of human adult hemoglobin (Hb) and was probed by electrospray ionization mass spectrometry. This specific conformational and/or charge density dependent(More)
Scope and Purpose The problem of ranking players in a round-robin tournament is to rank players according to their performance in the tournament. Similar problem also arises in soliciting consumer preferences regarding a set of products and establishing funding priorities. In this paper we have developed a new heuristic algorithm where the number of(More)
Ion-molecule reactions of individual multiply-protonated ions of bovine albumin dimer, formed from electrospray ionization, have been studied using a Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometer. Upon reaction of ammonia with a group of individual ions, charge-state shifting was observed due to proton transfer. Repeated additions of ammonia(More)
The potential energy surface for the decomposition of CH3SiH2+ was studied by ub initio electronic structure theory. At the MP2/6-31G(d,p) level of theory, CH3SiH2+ is the only minimum energy structure on the SiCH5+ potential energy surface. Lower levels of theory reported that +CH2SiH3 was also a local minimum, about 40 kcal/mol higher in energy with only(More)
A new approach to protein and peptide analysis that involves the coupling of on-line capillary electrophoresis-electrospray ionization Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry with a variation of sustained off-resonance irradiation is described. With this technique, multiple irradiation frequencies are broadcast simultaneously, which(More)
Ionization and molecular weight (MW) determination of megadalton size plasmid DNA has been achieved using electrospray ionization (ESI) with Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance (FTICR) mass spectrometry. DNA molecules were shown to remain intact through electrospray ionization by collection on a specially prepared surface, followed by agarose gel(More)
The dissociation of cytochrome c ions (15+ charge state) generated by electrospray ionization has been studied by Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry (FTICR) using a sustained off-resonance irradiation/collision-induced dissociation (SORI-CID) technique. Over 95% of the fragment ions can be accurately assigned (to better than 10(More)
The detection of gallium in biological samples is required due to its role in the diagnosis of tumor and for possible treatment of malignancies. However, the use of purely instrumental techniques is unsuitable for detection of low levels of gallium in biological matrixes. We have synthesized new protein conjugates based on 4-(2-pyridylazo) ligands. The(More)
