REMARKS - Note the presence of the even-numbered mass peaks at m/z 60, 68, 96, 112, 114 and 126 apparently derived from the GlcA moieties (see Spectrum A.8) and the odd-numbered mass peaks at m/z 59, 73, 83, 97, 109, 125, 137, 139 and 151 derived from the GlcNAc moieties (see Spectrum A.13). The fragment at m/z 59 can be interpreted as acetamide derived from the NAc groups.
