[…] major repeating unit of the isolated ks was the disulfated disaccharide, (-3gal6sβ1→4glcnac6sβ1-). the raw data was deconvoluted using decontools, and then the output of decontools was processed by glycresoft to generate matching structures and to provide relative quantitative information []. a total of 31 oligosaccharides were matched by glycresoft, which ranged from degree of polymerization […]

[…] algorithm failed to annotate the product ions appropriately. therefore, the glycopeptide results from the peaksdb search were exported in mzidentml 1.1 format [], manually verified, then provided to glycresoft (a software package developed in-house for glycopeptide discovery and annotation). the code for glycresoft, which is currently in active development with periodic updates and improvements, […]

[…] automated data analysis, entire lc–ms data files were deconvoluted using decontools. deconvoluted data were matched and scored against theoretical peptide and glycopeptide neutral mass lists, using glycresoft, with a 10 ppm mass tolerance. lists of glycopeptides and glycoforms used for searching have been provided in ., for quantitative evaluation of the ability to perform tandem ms […]

DOI: 10.1021/ac501301v

[…] this method relies on hilic lc-fourier transform mass spectrometry (ftms) analysis combined with heparin lyase ii digestion. data analysis utilizes a newly developed bioinformatics software package, glycresoft. the oligosaccharides (dp2 to dp6) generated from lmwhs prepared by three different manufacturers are compared., lmwhs, of enoxaparin sodium from sanofi-aventis (lovenox) and enoxaparin […]

[…] from maldi and esi-ms []. in addition software has been created to profile glycans present in samples separated and analysed using liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry (lc/ms). an example is the glycresoft software package, created to allow the automated recognition of glycans from lc/ms data []., many internet tools are also available which provide access to software that extract […]
