This paper focuses on identifying structural features responsible for resolution of heavy isotope coded peptides during reversed-phase chromatography. This was achieved by using labeled coding agents that varied in structure, number of deuterium atoms, placement of deuterium in the coding agent, and the functional group targeted by the reagent. Six coding(More)
The objective of the work described here was to evaluate the efficacy of silica monolith supports in high-speed reversed-phase liquid chromatography (RPLC) of peptides. This was done using a commercial Chromolith column with an octadecylsilane stationary phase and a tryptic digest of cytochrome c. Columns (100 mm x 4.6 mm) were operated at mobile phase(More)
Disease, external stimuli (such as drugs and toxins), and mutations cause changes in the rate of protein synthesis, post-translational modification, inter-compartmental transport, and degradation of proteins in living systems. Recognizing and identifying the small number of proteins involved is complicated by the complexity of biological extracts and the(More)
Stable isotopes are now widely used to quantify concentration changes in proteomics. This paper focuses on the resolution of isotopically coded peptides and how isotope effects occurring during chromatographic separations can be minimized. Heavy isotope derivatizing agents used in this work were the commercially available 2H8-ICAT reagent and 13C4-succinic(More)
