Abstract

Chemical derivatization coupled with nano-electrospray ionization (nESI) and ultra-high resolution accurate mass spectrometry (UHRAMS) is an established approach to overcome isobaric and isomeric mass interference limitations, and improve the analytical performance, of direct-infusion (i.e., "shotgun") lipidome analysis strategies for "sum composition" level identification and quantification of individual lipid species from within complex mixtures. Here, we describe a protocol for sequential functional group selective derivatization of aminophospholipids and O-alk-1'-enyl (i.e., plasmalogen) lipids, that when integrated into a shotgun lipidomics workflow involving deuterium-labeled internal ..
