[…] were then infused into a maxis electrospray ionization ultrahigh-resolution time-of-flight (uhr-tof) mass spectrometer (bruker). deuterium incorporation was analyzed and quantified using the hexicon 2 software package (http://hx2.mpimf-heidelberg.mpg.de) ()., trypsin digestion patterns of all three padc homologs were obtained by following the proteolytic degradation over 60 min […]

[…] soat)2/σ2, its denominator's non-centrality parameter is (μ + soan)2/σ2, and both numerator and denominator have one degree of freedom (morgan et al., ). in our matlab code (available at http://www.hexicon.co.uk/kielan/) we made use of a saddle-point approximation to the doubly non-central f cumulative distribution function (butler and paolella, ; paolella, )., so far, the model simulates […]

[…] mass spectrometer (bruker) for measuring the extent of deuterium incorporation. we analyzed deuterium incorporation with an improved version of the automated software package hexicon . this in-house version (manuscript in preparation) is based on the previously published nitpick algorithm for feature detection and hexicon for the analysis of deuterium incorporation.
