LIPID MAPS citations


Tissue storage affects lipidome profiling in comparison to in vivo microsampling approach

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5934459
PMID: 29725071
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-25428-2

[…] tion time correction, and peak filling–. All parameters for XCMS analysis were optimized by IPO package. Extracted peaks were annotated with the use of the xMSannotator Integrative Scoring Algorithm. LIPID MAPS was employed as a reference database. The annotated molecules are tentative identification, where unique features with medium to high confidence matches annotated by LIPID MAPS were selecte […]


De novo fatty acid synthesis by Schwann cells is essential for peripheral nervous system myelination

PMCID: 5881495
PMID: 29434029
DOI: 10.1083/jcb.201706010

[…] mpact mode, and FAs were detected in full scan of 80–400 mass per charge number. Source temperature was set to 250°C and the transfer line temperature to 200°C. Internal standards used in LC-MS were (LIPID MAPS identification number [LM], lipid shorthand nomenclature [PE, phosphatidylethanolamine; PS, phosphatidylserine; PC, phosphatidylcholine; PI, phosphatidylinositol], amount/sample): LM-1100, […]


Multiplatform plasma fingerprinting in cancer cachexia: a pilot observational and translational study

PMCID: 5879957
PMID: 29464940
DOI: 10.1002/jcsm.12270

[…] es in class separation was performed by searching accurate masses against different databases available online as METLIN (, KEGG (, and LIPID MAPS ( by the CEU Mass Mediator tool ( HMDB ( was also considered for additional information. Some compounds putati […]


Dynamic remodeling of lipids coincides with dengue virus replication in the midgut of Aedes aegypti mosquitoes

PLoS Pathog
PMCID: 5814098
PMID: 29447265
DOI: 10.1371/journal.ppat.1006853

[…] ignificance is based on the analysis in single modes alone. Putative molecular names of features were identified by searching mass per charge ratio (m/z) against the Human Metabolome Database (HMDB), LIPID Metabolites and Pathways Strategy (LIPID MAPS) and Metabolite and Tandem MS Database (Metlin) []. [M+H]+, [M+Na]+ and [M+NH4]+ adducts were accounted for in the neutral mass calculation in the p […]


Multiplatform plasma metabolic and lipid fingerprinting of breast cancer: A pilot control case study in Colombian Hispanic women

PLoS One
PMCID: 5810980
PMID: 29438405
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0190958

[…] ly identified by matching the observed accurate mass of each compound with the m/z values available online using following databases: METLIN (, KEGG (, lipid MAPS (, and HMDB ( with the CEU Mass Mediator tool ( Finally, some LC-MS significant metabolites were further analyzed […]


MALDI Mass Spectral Imaging of Bile Acids Observed as Deprotonated Molecules and Proton Bound Dimers from Mouse Liver Sections

J Am Soc Mass Spectrom
PMCID: 5889423
PMID: 29417494
DOI: 10.1007/s13361-017-1886-6

[…] sed and analyzed using the Bruker Data Analysis and FlexImaging software for single mass spectra and imaging data sets, respectively. Mass spectral interpretations were conducted using the METLIN and LIPID MAPS databases to match the accurate masses of the precursor ions, and by manually interpreting MS/MS fragmentation patterns and comparing with standards. MS images were normalized to the deprot […]
