Direct high-resolution peptide and protein analysis by desorption electrospray ionization Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry

Authors


Abstract

We report the first coupling of a desorption electrospray ionization (DESI) ion source to Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry (ESI-FT-ICR-MS) for high-resolution protein analysis. The DESI FT-ICR-MS source design is described in detail along with preliminary data obtained on peptides and proteins ranging from 1 to 5.7 kDa. Copyright © 2006 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
