A better strategy involves glycoprotein enrichment by affinity chromatography (lectins), which facilitates its identification in subsequent LC–MS/MS analysis [78]. Another strategy involves the release of the glycans from glycopeptides, followed by targeted analysis of the glycans. N-linked glycans can be digested using peptideN-glycosidase F (PNGase F), while O-linked glycans can be released by β-elimination. Change in mass units for peptides upon glycan removal allows for identification of the types of glycosylation (N- or O-linked), as well as the sites of glycosylation.

7 Schematic workflow for bottom-up and top-down MS-based protein characterization and identification. paper=CH13137 [15] intact proteins are investigated and bottom-up approach when proteins are digested and the peptide mixture is analyzed (Fig. 7). A top-down approach allows for the identification of protein isoforms or any potential PTMs within proteins [65]. In bottom-up approach, digested proteins are subjected to MS analysis using on-line tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS). In the same bottom-up approach, peptide mass fingerprinting for protein identification is also used, particularly in MALDI-MS analyses.

Therefore, enrichment of phosphopeptides using TiO2, metal-oxide-based resins (MOAC), a combination of TiO2 and IMAC (TiMAC), and antibody affinity purifications [89, 90] is advised. Another important protein PTM is disulfide bridges [11, 12, 15, 91], formed through the oxidation of cysteine residues, with an important role in maintaining the 1 Mass Spectrometry for Proteomics-Based Investigation 19 three-dimensional conformation of proteins and inherently their physiological function. Disulfide bridges are usually found in extracellular and membrane-bound proteins, both as homodimers and homopolymers, but also as heterodimers and heteropolymers.
