Two-dimensional mass spectrometry (2DMS) involves simultaneous acquisition of the fragmentation patterns of all the analytes in a mixture by correlating their precursor and frag- ment ions by modulating precursor ions system- atically through a fragmentation zone. Tandem two-dimensional mass spectrometry (MS/2DMS) unites the ultra-high accuracy of Fourier trans- form ion cyclotron resonance (FT-ICR) MS/MS and the simultaneous data-independent fragmen- tation of 2DMS to achieve extensive inter-residue fragmentation of entire proteins. 2DMS was recently developed for top-down proteomics (TDP), and applied to the analysis of calmodulin (CaM), reporting a cleavage coverage of about ~23% using infrared multiphoton dissociation (IRMPD) as fragmentation technique. The goal of this work is to expand the utility of top-down protein analysis using MS/2DMS in order to extend the cleavage coverage in top-down proteomics further into the interior regions of the protein. In this case, using MS/2DMS, the cleavage coverage of CaM increased from ~23% to ~42%.

This study represents a further step in the analysis of CaM by two-dimensional mass spectrometry. Including previously published BUP and TDP 2DMS data [28, 29], and the MS/2DMS data herein, the aggregate, cumulative cleavage coverage of calmodulin is now ~76%. Conclusions MS/2DMS is a promising tool for deep sequencing of proteins, providing a new fragmentation tool for top-down proteomics. In this work, the cleavage coverage of calmodulin increased from ~ 23% to ~ 42% compared to the top-down 2DMS of the protein alone.

Two-dimensional mass spectrometry (2DMS) involves simultaneous acquisition of the fragmentation patterns of all the analytes in a mixture by correlating their precursor and frag- ment ions by modulating precursor ions system- atically through a fragmentation zone. Tandem two-dimensional mass spectrometry (MS/2DMS) unites the ultra-high accuracy of Fourier trans- form ion cyclotron resonance (FT-ICR) MS/MS and the simultaneous data-independent fragmen- tation of 2DMS to achieve extensive inter-residue fragmentation of entire proteins. 2DMS was recently developed for top-down proteomics (TDP), and applied to the analysis of calmodulin (CaM), reporting a cleavage coverage of about ~23% using infrared multiphoton dissociation (IRMPD) as fragmentation technique. The goal of this work is to expand the utility of top-down protein analysis using MS/2DMS in order to extend the cleavage coverage in top-down proteomics further into the interior regions of the protein. In this case, using MS/2DMS, the cleavage coverage of CaM increased from ~23% to ~42%.

The study, later data-points and 1024 scans of 2M data points over a mass range implemented with electron-capture dissociation (ECD) [29], of m/z 368.2-3000 on the vertical axis and m/z 147.5-3000 on showed comparable results between the one-dimensional and the horizontal axis; total time of acquisition was ~80 min per two-dimensional analyses, with a considerable saving in time- experiment.

Floris et al.: Application of MS/2DMS to Top-down Deep Sequencing of CaM Finally, although MS/2DMS still has room for improve- ment, its use in the TDP analysis of CaM raised the cleavage coverage compared to 2D IRMPD MS. This study represents a further step in the analysis of CaM by two-dimensional mass spectrometry. Including previously published BUP and TDP 2DMS data [28, 29], and the MS/2DMS data herein, the aggregate, cumulative cleavage coverage of calmodulin is now ~76%. Conclusions MS/2DMS is a promising tool for deep sequencing of proteins, providing a new fragmentation tool for top-down proteomics. In this work, the cleavage coverage of calmodulin increased from ~ 23% to ~ 42% compared to the top-down 2DMS of the protein alone.
