REMARKS - Sample prepared following ref. 172. Abundant fragment ions at m/z 59, 73, 83, 109, 125, 139 and 151 indicate the GalNAc moieties and the peaks at m/z 96, 102, 112, 114 and 126 the GlcA moieties. Note the large difference between this fragment pattern and that obtained for the neutral PBS solution (Spectrum A.19a).
