Technical Seminar - Comprehensive Characterization of Etanercept Using Zenotof 7600 System

Etanercept is a recombinant Fc fusion protein therapeutic, targeting inflammation regulation. It binds to the receptors TNFR and p75 to block adverse inflammation at the cellular level and has a complex distribution of post-translation modifications (PTM), such as N and O-linked glycans. Current CID-based MS/MS can struggle to characterize such PTMs, since side-chain species are typically fragmented via a mechanism that does not produce diagnostic ions related to the PTM localization. Other forms of fragmentation, such as ETD, can maintain side chain information but suffer from low sensitivity and scan rate, as well as inadequate coverage of low charge state peptides. In this study, a new form of fragmentation (electron activated dissociation, or EAD) was employed to comprehensively characterize the glycosylation of etanercept at the peptide level. A comparative analysis between intact/subunit and peptide mapping results was performed as a validation step for the novel EAD workflow. A total of 149Three N linked glycosylations were detected, as well as nine sites of O-linked glycosylation, with high confidences, via a single, generic, data-dependent LC-MS/MS analysis. Even in challenging cases, exact positioning information of the glycosylation on the peptide could be obtained. In addition, EAD allows for confirmation of amino acid isomers (Leu/IsoLeu and Asp/IsoAsp) via MS/MS analysis, in the same experiment, which will be presented as well.

Technical Seminar - Large Molecules Get SLIM: Fast and Informative Large Molecule Characterization with High-Resolution Ion Mobility

Sep 22, 2021 8:05am ‐ Sep 22, 2021 8:35am
Sponsored by MOBILion Systems

How can High-Resolution Ion Mobility Mass Spectrometry (HRIM-MS) address the challenges of large molecule characterization? This seminar will discuss the benefits of HRIM-MS in enhancing structural characterization of large molecule therapeutics, while increasing throughput and reducing reliance on LC-based methods. Specific focus will be on how HRIM-MS provides more complete information on coeluting structural isomers, as well as and on emerging workflows.
