Mass Labels While Mass Spectroscopy is not covered

Mass Labels While Mass Spectroscopy is not covered in our texts, other mass/density dependent technologies including X-ray Spectroscopy, Gamma Spectroscopy, & Ultrasound Analysis are covered in Guy & ffytche, An Introduction to The Principles of Medical Imaging, Imperial College Press, 2000, Chapters 4,5 & 7. Other coverage is also found in Shung, Chapters 1, X-ray, & 2, Ultrasound, in

Shung, Smith, Tsui, Principles of Medical Imaging, Academic Press, 1992. Mass Spectroscopy/Spectrometry This method uses one of several means to: vaporize a sample ionize &/or fragment it introduce it into a low vacuum space sort the fragment ions based on charge to mass ratio, m/z detect the ions impinging on a charge or

photosensitive device, e.g., film or photodiodes Note that heavy isotopes yield higher m/z for a given compound, yielding multiple MS peaks with heights proportional to the abundance of the isotopes. A Basic Mass Spectrometer Schematic Animations of MS (& other techniques):

The more energy introduced in volatilizing & ionizing the sample the more likely molecules, especially large ones, will

fragment. While smaller molecules may be introduced directly into the MS ionization chamber as pure compounds or as simplified mixtures resulting from the use of gas chromatographs upstream from the ionization chamber, this is not possible for most high polymers. The parent peak from the ion formed when the entire molecule looses only 1 electron provides molecular mass information. It is often vital to the analysis to find this peak which may only form under relatively gentle conditions.

Getting Polymers to Take Flight Macromolecules may be introduced into the ionization chamber as pure materials or as simplified mixtures filtered through upstream high performance or liquid chromatographs. They may also be lifted from surfaces directly & used to examine surface compositions. The surface itself may be modified to assist volatilization & ionizatin by absorbing much of the thermal energy of the ionization source (laser, microwave, ) &/or by capturing electrons from the

macromolecules to generate ions secondarily. MALDI, matrix assisted laser desorption ionization, uses easily volatilized & ionized organics such as cinnamic acid, gentisic acid, & sinapinic acid to improve movement of macromolecules such as peptides from a surface to the ion stream. Nucleic acids may be examined similarly. Validation Issues Calibration for accuracy requires examination of molecules with known parent peak m/z & known

fragmentation patterns. For more complex molecular mixtures it also requires inclusion of internal calibration molecules that provide reference peaks from which to mark m/z positions, e.g., digestive enzyme fragmentation peaks in protein digestion experiments. Note that MS methods may not have uniform sensitivity across the entire m/z range of interest; thus, multiple calibration or reference peaks may be needed. Fragmentation is also frequently run as a series of pulses each of which generate a set of data & noise peaks. Digital accumulation of pulse

results accentuate true peaks & enhance sensitivity by increasing precision & specificity.
