A high resolution atmospheric pressure matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization-quadrupole-orbitrap MS platform enables in situ analysis of biomolecules by multi-mode ionization and acquisition.

In this study, an AP/MALDI source with ultra-high spatial resolution was coupled to a Q Exactive HF orbitrap mass spectrometer for high resolution in situ analysis by MALDI, laserspray ionization (LSI) and matrix assisted ionization (MAI) without instrument modification. LSI and MAI generated multiply charged ions, which expanded the mass detection range and improved fragmentation efficiency. Full MS, targeted MS/MS, data dependent acquisition (DDA) and parallel reaction monitoring (PRM) acquisitions were performed on peptide and protein standards, tissue extracts and tissue sections for in depth characterization of various biomolecules. High resolution full MS and MS/MS images were obtained from crustacean and rat tissues with pixel size less than 30 μm. Overall, AP/MALDI-Q-Orbitrap is a fast scanning instrument that is capable of performing multiple types of ionization and multiple acquisition modes without instrument modification. This instrument platform provides an attractive alternative to other high resolution MALDI instruments. PMID: 29405984 [PubMed - in process]

Ngo, Robert SporkenAbstractThe transfer of CVD-grown graphene sheets onto arbitrary substrates is important for the development of practical applications. Unfortunately, designing a low cost and highly efficient graphene transfer technique to achieve defect-free graphene sheets with low contact resistance onto various substrates still remains a challenge. In this paper, a CVD grown monolayer graphene sheet was directly transferred on SiO2/Si substrate. We found that a combination of flo...

The ability of these proteins to form and stabilize 10% (w/w) sunflower oil-in-water emulsions (at pH = 3.0) was studied at three different concentrations, 0.25, 0.75 and 1.5% (w/w), by monitoring emulsion droplet size distribution, microstructural and morp...

This study aims to investigate the thermos-stability of human, bovine, and caprine MFGM proteins after pasteurization. The milk fat globule size was determined using confocal laser scanning microscopy. The MFGM proteins were characterized using SDS-PAGE and label-free proteomic techniques. The results indicated that pasteurization didn’t influence the MFGs size distributions in these three species. A total of 1104, 632, and 137 proteins were identified in human, bovine, and caprine MFGM, respectively. The significantly changed proteins after pasteurization were mainly involved in lipid syntheses and secretion as well...
