Mass Spectrometry in Glycobiology Research

Mass spectrometry (MS) is a vital analytical technique that ionizes chemical species and sorts the ions based on their mass-to-charge ratio. A mass spectrum is a plot of the ion signal as a function of the mass-to-charge ratio during experimental analysis. These spectra are then used to determine the elemental or isotopic signature of a sample for observations, the masses of particles and of various molecules, and to clarify the chemical structures of desired molecules, such as biomolecules, glycopeptides and other chemical compounds.
