DOI: 10.3390/life5031539

[…] spectra were recorded in the mass range from 200–2000, 600–900, and 1200–2000. the target mass resolution was set to r = 100,000 (fwhm at m/z 400)., the data analysis was performed using alex (analysis of lipid experiments) []. the target list contained the following tetraether lipid classes: sulfono-hex3-gdgt-ip, hex2-gdgt-ip, hex-gdgt-ip, ip-gdgt, hex-gdgt-pg, sulfo-hex-gdnt, gdgt, gdnt, […]
