Characterisation of fungal lanostane-type triterpene acids by electrospray ionisation mass spectrometry.

Abstract

Lanostane-triterpene acids obtained from the culture of the fungus Coriolellus malicola were studied by electrospray mass spectrometry in the negative ion mode using quadrupole time-of-flight and quadrupole ion trap analysers. Despite the differences observed in the mass spectra recorded with these instruments, a set of fragment ions was found to be characteristic of the family, depending on the Delta(7,9(11)) or Delta(8) skeleton and the particular functional group at C-3.
