High Resolution and High Mass Accuracy MALDI-ISD Measurements


Matrix assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) combined with in-source decay (ISD) is a useful tool for doing top-down sequencing of intact proteins. This technique can provide enough information to determine both N- and C-terminal sequences. In this work, we measured the ISD fragment ions generated for several peptides using the JEOL SpiralTOF MALDI-MS system.


ACTH18-39 and oxidized Insulin B chain peptide samples were separately dissolved in 0.1% trifluoroacetic acid aqueous with the concentration fixed at 10 pmol/μL. 1,5-diaminonaphtalene (DAN), which can provide good S/N for ISD fragment ions [1], was used as the MALDI matrix. The DAN matrix was dissolved to 0.1% trifluoroacetic acid aqueous/ 50% acetonitrile with the matrix concentration fixed at 10 mg/mL. Subsequently, the matrix and sample solutions were mixed 1/1 (v/v), and then 1 μL of each solution was deposited and dried on the MALDI target plate. Afterwards, each sample was analyzed in triplicate on the JEOL JMS-3000 SpiralTOF MALDI-MS system.
