Abstract [en]

The analytical utility of the electron capture dissociation (ECD) technique, developed by McLafferty and co-workers, has substantially improved peptide and protein characterization using Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry (FTICR-MS). The limitations of the first ECD implementations on commercial instruments were eliminated by the employment of low-energy electron-injection systems based on indirectly heated dispenser cathodes. In particular, the ECD rate and reliability were greatly increased, enabling the combination of ECD/FTICR-MS with on-line liquid separation techniques. Further technique development allowed the combination of two rapid fragmentation techniques, high-rate ECD and infrared multiphoton dissociation (IRMPD), in a single experimental configuration. Simultaneous and consecutive irradiations of trapped ions with electrons and photons extended the possibilities for ion activation/dissociation and led to improved peptide and protein characterization. The application of high-rate ECD/FTICR-MS has demonstrated its power and unique capabilities in top-down sequencing of peptides and proteins, including characterization of post-translational modifications, improved sequencing of peptides with multiple disulfide bridges and secondary fragmentation (w-ion formation). Analysis of peptide mixtures has been accomplished using high-rate ECD in bottom-up mass spectrometry based on mixture separation by liquid chromatography and capillary electrophoresis. This paper summarizes the current impact of high-rate ECD/FTICR-MS for top-down and bottom-up mass spectrometry of peptides and proteins.

Abstract [en]

Advances in science and technology during the past decade have greatly enhanced the level of the structural investigation of macromolecules – peptides and proteins. Biological mass spectrometry has become one of the most precise and sensitive techniques in peptide and protein analysis. However, increasing demands of biotechnological applications require further progress to be made.

In the present thesis the development and improvement of peptide and protein characterization methods and techniques based on ion-electron and ion-photon reactions in electrospray ionization Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry are described. The focus is on the development of the electron capture dissociation method, recently discovered by the group of professor McLafferty, into a high rate, efficient tandem mass spectrometrical technique.

The rate and reliability of the electron capture dissociation technique were greatly increased by implementation of low-energy pencil electron beam injection systems based on indirectly heated dispenser cathodes. Further implementation of a hollow electron beam injection system combined, in a single experimental configuration, two rapid fragmentation techniques, high rate electron capture dissociation and infrared multiphoton dissociation. Simultaneous and consecutive irradiations of trapped ions with electrons and photons extended the possibilities for ion activation/dissociation reaction schemes and lead to improved peptide and protein characterization. Using these improvements, high rate electron capture dissociation was employed in time-limited experiments, such as liquid chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry and capillary electrophoresis-tandem mass spectrometry.

The analytical applications of the developed techniques have been demonstrated in top-down sequencing of peptides and proteins up to 29 kDa, improved sequencing of peptides with multiple disulfide bridges and secondary fragmentation (w-ion formation), as well as extended characterization of peptide mixtures separated by liquid chromatography and capillary electrophoresis. For instance, the dissociation of peptides resulting from enzymatic digestion of proteins provided complementary structural information on peptides and proteins, as well as their post-translational modifications.
