Article
Electrospray ionization (ESI) is frequently used to produce gas-phase ions for mass spectrometry (MS)-based techniques. The composition of solvents used in ESI-MS is often manipulated to enhance analyte ionization, including for carbohydrates. Moreover, to characterize analyte structures, ESI has been coupled to hydrogen/deuterium exchange, ion mob...
Article
Carbohydrates play key roles in facilitating cellular functions, yet characterizing their structures is analytically challenging due to the presence of epimers, regioisomers, and stereoisomers. In-electrospray-hydrogen/deuterium exchange-mass spectrometry (in-ESI HDX-MS) is a rapid HDX method that samples solvated carbohydrates with minimal instrum...
Article
Glycans have an immense number of biological activities, necessitating increased efforts to characterize glycan structures. Mass spectrometry has been coupled to electrospray ionization (ESI) to characterize carbohydrates. While the gas-phase structures of glycan- and carbohydrate-metal adducts have been characterized, several questions persist con...
Article
In-electrospray (ESI) hydrogen/deuterium exchange–mass spectrometry (HDX-MS) has been used to characterize solvated carbohydrate structures. However, the rapid exchange rate of hydroxyls, as well as variations in source conditions and ambient humidity, alter the extent of forward and back exchange, resulting in poor repeatability when quantifying D...
Article
The reactions of a monomeric borole and a dimeric borole with 2,3-dimethyl-1,3-butadiene and 1,3-cyclohexadiene were investigated. The monomeric borole reacted at ambient temperaturewhereas heat was required to crack the dimer to form the monomer and induce reactivity. 2,3-Dimethyl-1,3-butadiene reacts to give diverse products resulting from a cycl...
Article
The conformations of glycans are crucial for their biological functions. In-electrospray ionization (ESI) hydrogen/deuterium exchange-mass spectrometry (HDX-MS) is a promising technique for studying carbohydrate conformations since rapidly exchanging functional groups, e.g., hydroxyls, can be labeled on the timeframe of ESI. However, regular applic...
Article
Characterizing glycans is analytically challenging since glycans are heterogeneous, branched polymers with different three-dimensional conformations. Hydrogen/deuterium exchange-mass spectrometry (HDX-MS) has been used to analyze native conformations and dynamics of biomolecules by measuring the mass increase of analytes as labile protons are repla...
