REMARKS - Compare with Spectra B.l and B.3. This spectrum is now entirely dominated by massive Met and Trp fragment peaks at m/z 48 (methanethiol) and m/z 117 (indole), respectively. The acetic acid peaks (m/z 60, 43) are reduced with respect to Spectrum B.l due to the absence of Lys and the lower Arg content. The small peak at m/z 64 may point to slight oxidation of Met residues (ref. 96).
