Abstract

In liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS) analyses of complex peptide mixtures, dynamic exclusion functions are used to minimize repeat selections of identical precursors for collision induced dissociation (CID). We describe a new algorithm for the dynamic exclusion of m/z values during LC/MS/MS. Full-scan based peak exclusion (Fulspec) uses a simplified model of chromatographic peak formation to detect and exclude contaminants present throughout the run or that lead to broad peaks. Therefore, instead of excluding peptides from fragment analysis according to a rigidly predefined time window, the chromatographic properties of the detected analytes are used. The algorithm was tested on two datasets derived from previously published experiments. Fulspec achieves a distribution of CID spectra with minimal tailing on the retention time axis, without resorting to rigid exclusion of m/z values. The procedure further excludes intensities with a bias towards low-quality CID spectra. This combination frees up valuable analytical capacity. The underlying intensity vs. quality analyses challenge the assumption that abundant precursors automatically give the best identifications. Further validation of the algorithm will require its incorporation by equipment manufacturers into the instrument control programs.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
