Rhizosphere Protists Change Metabolite Profiles in Zea mays

Front Microbiol
PMCID: 5946010
PMID: 29780370
DOI: 10.3389/fmicb.2018.00857

[…] meter was set to 250°C. Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry data were subjected to baseline correction using MetAlign (); chromatographic deconvolution and quantification of compounds was done using TagFinder (). Using this latter program, a retention time index (RI) was calculated from the added n-alkanes. Metabolites were identified by comparison of RI-values and fragment masses to the Golm met […]


Metabolite related antidepressant action of diterpene ginkgolides in the prefrontal cortex

PMCID: 5907891
PMID: 29713170
DOI: 10.2147/NDT.S161351

[…] GC-MS metabolite profiles were converted into the NetCdf file format using TagFinder for peak integration. Low-molecular-weight metabolites were identified as chromatographic peaks in total ion current chromatograms. The R software platform was used for data preprocessing, i […]


Primed primary metabolism in systemic leaves: a functional systems analysis

[…] öchengladbach, Germany). Chromatograms were obtained and baseline corrected by ChromaTOF software (Version 4.22, LECO, St. Joseph, USA). Identification of metabolites was manually supervised with the TagFinder software and the mass spectra and retention time index (RI) reference collection of the Golm Metabolome Database,. Peak heights were normalized to U-13C-sorbitol and fresh weights.Figure 1 […]


Characterization of the Primary Metabolome of Brachystegia boehmii and Colophospermum mopane under Different Fire Regimes in Miombo and Mopane African Woodlands

Front Plant Sci
PMCID: 5735074
PMID: 29312388
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2017.02130

[…] romatogram and mass spectra for each sample were analyzed using AMDIS (Automated Mass Spectral Deconvolution and Identification System) software (v 2.71). Primary metabolites were annotated using the TagFinder software, matching mass spectral and retention time index to the reference collection of authenticated standard substances from the Golm Metabolome Database (). The relative abundance of pri […]


Characterization of the Wheat Leaf Metabolome during Grain Filling and under Varied N Supply

Front Plant Sci
PMCID: 5712589
PMID: 29238358
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2017.02048

[…] ght-mass spectrometry (GC-TOF-MS) was performed as described previously (Lisec et al., ; Watanabe et al., ). Multiparallel chromatography data processing and compound identification were performed by TagFinder software (Luedemann et al., ) using reference spectra from the Golm Metabolome Database for compound identification (Kopka et al., ). […]


Rapid in situ 13C tracing of sucrose utilization in Arabidopsis sink and source leaves

Plant Methods
PMCID: 5648436
PMID: 29075313
DOI: 10.1186/s13007-017-0239-6

[…] d metabolites or metabolite fragments after GC–EI–TOF–MS analyses were recorded as nominal mass isotopologue distributions and extracted by routine data processing of all recorded mass features using TagFinder software [, ]. The initial mass isotopologue distribution data were corrected for the naturally occurring 13C isotope abundance and the contributions of natural isotopes of other elements us […]
