PMCID: 5892939
PMID: 29596410
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pbio.2003782

[…] hplc system. mass spectrometry detection was carried out on an agilent 6540 q-tof coupled with an esi source operated in negative mode. isotopic labeling was assessed comprehensively by using the x13cms software []. the identity of each metabolite was confirmed by matching retention times and ms/ms fragmentation data to standard compounds. the isotopologue distribution patterns presented […]

[…] that show a clear pattern of isotopic enrichment. however, the approach requires the labeled fraction to be fully labeled and the tracer to be highly pure to get the proper isotopic distributions. x13cms [] and george [], both run on the r platform using gc-ms output. the former algorithm iterates over ms signals in each mass spectra using the mass difference due to the label, while the latter […]

[…] for features detection (peakwidth = 20–200 s and ppm = 10) and obiwarp method for retention time correction. the output object, xcmsset(), containing labeled and unlabeled data was then submitted to x13cms for the isotopic labeling analysis. the peaks corresponding to the isotoplogues of each base peak were identified according to the following inputs: i.) the mass difference between 13c and 12c […]

DOI: 10.3390/ijms17071017

[…] for global yet specific detection of features derived from biological origin. to this end, several software tools have been developed for lc-hrms data processing during the last few years such as x13cms [], mzmatch-iso [], hitime [], iroa—company (avaliable online: http://iroatech.com, last accessed may 2016), allocator [] and metextract [,]., some of these tools have been designed to use […]

DOI: 10.1186/s40170-015-0139-z

[…] re extracted as described above., raw data was converted to mzxml by using msconvert and then analyzed with the xcms software (peakwidth = 5–140 s and ppm = 12) []. for isotope analysis, our in-house x13cms software package was utilized and isotopic labeling patterns were identified with the following parameters: mass of 12c = 12.000000 da, mass difference between 13c and 12c = 1.003355 da, ppm =  […]
