PMCID: 5844983
PMID: 29556190
DOI: 10.3389/fnagi.2018.00051

[…] such as metlin and massbank (validation level 2) or against in silico fragmentation spectra (validation level 3) retrieved from metfrag (ruttkies et al., ), cfm-id (allen et al., ) and/or csi:fingerid (dührkop et al., ) with precursor mass accuracy of 20 ppm and fragment accuracy of 0.01 da. semi-quantitative metabolite intensities were calculated using the raw peak height., […]

PMID: 29342073
DOI: 10.3390/metabo8010008

[…] in recent years. there are multiple publicly available software and web servers allowing the query of experimental lc-ms and lc-ms/ms data for identification of unknowns, including metfrag and csi:fingerid [,,]., the second strategy, on the other hand, relies on the nmr technique, in which the experimental chemical shifts of unknown metabolites are sequentially assigned and deconvoluted […]

[…] ions. molecular formulas were assigned based on data processing with two computational tools (sirius and ms-finder); annotation of candidate structures was performed by database search using csi:fingerid and ms-finder. even though ultimate identification has not been achieved, it was demonstrated that secondary metabolism became activated under cr(vi) stress. among 42 candidate compounds […]

[…]  50; nitrogens ≤ 10; chlorines ≤ 10; sulfurs ≤ 10. the empirical formula generated was used to predict structures that were proposed based on the online database (metlin, chemspider and chemcalc, csi:fingerid), fragmentation pattern and literature [–]., mosquito larvicidal assay was carried out following standard procedure described by who [] and adopted by ndung’u et al. [–] with an exception of […]

[…] formulas in higher-mass regions. furthermore, it also analyses the fragmentation pattern of a compound using fragmentation trees that can be directly uploaded to compound structure identification: fingerid (csi: fingerid; described below) via a web service. molecular formula searcher (mfsearcher) [] is a tool that efficiently searches high-accuracy masses against a database of pre-calculated […]
