Fragmentation of protonated ions of peptides containing cysteine, cysteine sulfinic acid, and cysteine sulfonic acid.

Abstract

The oxidation of the sulfhydryl group in cysteine to sulfenic acid, sulfinic acid, and sulfonic acid in proteins is important in a number of enzymatic processes. In this study we examined the fragmentation of four peptides containing cysteine, cysteine sulfinic acid (Cys-SO(2)H), and cysteine sulfonic acid (Cys-SO(3)H) in an ion-trap mass spectrometer.
