Abstract Methods of converting arginine residues into ornithine, N δ -pyrimidylornithine, N δ -imidazolidinonidenornithine residues in peptides have been developed. The modified peptides undergo the amino acid type of fragmentation, so that mass spectrometry can now be used for amino acid sequence determination in arginine-containing peptides.

Mass spectrometry in the investigation of -lysine-containing peptides
Mass spectrometry can be used for amino acid sequence determination in β-lysine-containing peptides and for the identification of α- and β-lysine residues in peptides, as well as for amide bond typeExpand
Field desorption mass spectrometry of basic peptides. An approach to the sequencing of arginine‐containing peptides
Three basic hexapeptides which have two adjacent arginyl residues were studied by field desorption mass spectrometry. At low emitter temperature singly and doubly charged pseudomolecular ions [M +Expand
Conversion of arginine to ornithine for improving the fragmentation pattern of peptides labeled with the N-terminal tris(2,4,6-trimethoxyphenyl)phosphonium group in tandem mass spectrometry
We propose a method of converting arginine to ornithine residues by controlled hydrazinolysis, in order to facilitate the sequencing of peptides by tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS). Whereas theExpand
The ornithine effect in peptide cation dissociation.
The highly selective nature of the Ornithine effect opens up the possibility for conversion of arginine to ornithine residues to induce selective cleavages in polypeptide ions, and may complement strategies that seek to generate non-selective cleavage of the related peptides. Expand
Characterization of dipeptides by electron impact and chemical ionization mass spectrometry.
The pyrolytic conversion of peptide trimethylanilinium salts to their methyl esters in the direct insertion probe of a mass spectrometer was found to be most suitable for the derivatization of dipeptides in mixtures. Expand
