Article
Full-text available
Structural modifications of DNA and RNA molecules play a pivotal role in epigenetic and posttranscriptional regulation. To characterise these modifications, more and more MS and MS/MS- based tools for the analysis of nucleic acids are being developed. To identify an oligonucleotide in a mass spectrum, it is useful to compare the obtained isotope pa...
Article
Rationale: Structure elucidation of small molecules has been one of the cornerstone applications of mass spectrometry for decades. Despite the increasing availability of software tools, structure elucidation from MS/MS data remains a challenging task, leaving many spectra unidentified. However, as an increasing number of reference MS/MS spectra ar...
Article
Full-text available
Despite the increasing importance of non-targeted metabolomics to answer various life science questions, extracting biochemically relevant information from metabolomics spectral data is still an incompletely solved problem. Most computational tools to identify tandem mass spectra focus on a limited set of molecules of interest. However, such tools...
Article
Mass spectrometry (MS) has played a critical role in the identification of unknown small molecules for many years. As such, it is also a pivotal technique in the structure elucidation of drug impurities and degradation products during pharmaceutical development. In this review we discuss the regulatory expectations and some general practices regard...

Article
Glutathione-rich inactivated dry yeasts (GSH-IDY) are purported to accumulate glutathione intracellularly and then released into the must. Glutathione is beneficial for wine quality, but research has highlighted that GSH-IDYs have a synergic antioxidant effect similar to that of molecular GSH. Combination of negative mode ultra-high-resolution Four...

The DPPH (2,2-Diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl) assay is an easy and efficient method commonly used to determine the antioxidant capacity of many food matrices and beverages. In contrast with red wines, white wines are poorer in antioxidant polyphenolics, and the more hydrophilic sulfur-containing compounds in them may contribute significantly to their an...

Nitrogen sources in the must are important for yeast metabolism, growth, and performance, and wine volatile compounds profile. Yeast assimilable nitrogen (YAN) deficiencies in grape must are one of the main causes of stuck and sluggish fermentation. The nitrogen requirement of Saccharomyces cerevisiae metabolism has been described in detail. Howeve...

Bioactive peptides play critical roles in regulating many biological processes. Recently, natural short peptides biomarkers are drawing significant attention and are considered as “hidden treasure” of drug candidates. High resolution and high mass accuracy provided by mass spectrometry (MS)-based untargeted metabolomics would enable the rapid detec...

Full-text available
Introduction Bacterial malolactic fermentation (MLF) has a considerable impact on wine quality. The yeast strain used for primary fermentation can systematically stimulate (MLF+ phenotype) or inhibit (MLF−) bacteria and the MLF process as a function of numerous winemaking practices, but the underlying molecular evidence still remains a mystery. Obj...
Article
Full-text available
Background Interpreting non-targeted metabolomics data remains a challenging task. Signals from non-targeted metabolomics studies stem from a combination of biological causes, complex interactions between them and experimental bias/noise. The resulting data matrix usually contain huge number of variables and only few samples, and classical techniqu...
Thesis
Full-text available
As a complex microbial ecosystem, wine is a particularly interesting model for studying interactions between microorganisms. Contact-independent interactions (indirect interactions) between the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisae and the lactic acid bacterium Oenococcus oeni have a direct effect on malolactic fermentation (MLF), induction and completion,...
Article

Most fermented products are generated by a mixture of microbes. These microbial consortia possess various biological activities responsible for the nutritional, hygienic, and aromatic qualities of the product. Wine is no exception. Substantial yeast and bacterial biodiversity is observed on grapes, and in both must and wine. The diverse microorgani...
