Abstract

Under collisional activation condition, it is well known that dissociations of multideprotonated oligonucleotides involve an initial loss of nucleic base (formation of [M-nH-Bi]n-) yielding consecutively the complementary (ai-B) and wj product ions. The loss of thymine is thermodynamically unfavored owing to its low proton affinity. 6mer DNA anions were activated in SORI-CID and by EDD. The EDD spectra are significantly different from SORI-CID. All EDD spectra showed singly charged w5- with good abundance, while this ion was not detected in SORI-CID spectra. In EDD spectra loss of thymine is easily detected, surprisingly doubly charged fragment ions were also detected, these ions can be produced directly from precursor ion [M-2H]2-. MS3 and double resonance experiments have been realized to find the origin of these doubly charged and [ai-T]- ions in EDD spectra of d(T2AT3) and (T2CT3). It has been demonstrated that these doubly charged ions are produced by electron induced dissociation. The combination of double resonance and EDD/SORI-CID MS3 experiments allows decoupling the EID from the EDD processes.
