Traditionally, peptide identification using fragmentation spectra relies on extracting the maximum amount of information from spectra. Using different combinations of small ion masses, we show that identifying a small number of fragment ions in a spectrum is sufficient for peptide identification. We consider y2-, y3-, b2-, and b3-ions and find the combination of b2-y2 to be sufficient for many peptides. Adding either the y3- or the b3-ion increases specificity and allows reliable peptide… CONTINUE READING
