A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Studies of peptide fragment ion structures are important to aid in the accurate kinetic modeling and prediction of peptide fragmentation pathways for a given sequence. Peptide b(2)(+) ion structures have been of recent interest. While previously studied b(2)(+) ions that contain only aliphatic or simple aromatic residues are oxazolone structures, the HA b(2)(+) ion consists of both oxazolone and diketopiperazine structures. The structures of a series of histidine-analogue-containing Xxx-Ala b(2)(+) ions were studied by using action infrared multiphoton dissociation (IRMPD) spectroscopy, fragment ion hydrogen-deuterium exchange (HDX), and density functional theory (DFT) calculations to systematically probe the influence of different side chain structural elements on the resulting b(2)(+) ion structures formed. The b(2)(+) ions studied include His-Ala (HA), methylated histidine analogues, including π-methyl-HA and τ-methyl-HA, pyridylalanine (pa) analogues, including 2-(pa)A, 3-(pa)A, and 4-(pa)A, and linear analogues, including diaminobutanoic acid-Ala (DabA) and Lys-Ala (KA). The location and accessibility of the histidine π-nitrogen, or an amino nitrogen on an aliphatic side chain, were seen to be essential for diketopiperazine formation in addition to the more typical oxazolone structure formation, while blocking or removal of the τ-nitrogen did not change the b(2)(+) ion structures formed. Linear histidine analogues, DabA and KA, formed only diketopiperazine structures, suggesting that a steric interaction in the HisAla case may interfere with the complete trans-cis isomerization of the first amide bond that is necessary for diketopiperazine formation.
