Abstract

Negative ion mode nanoliquid chromatography/mass spectrometry (nano-LC/MS) on porous graphitic carbon columns at pH 11 was studied and compared to capillary LC/MS at pH 8 for the analysis of neutral and acidic glycan alditols. Oligosaccharides were chromatographed with an acetonitrile gradient containing 0.04% ammonium hydroxide and analyzed with a linear ion trap mass spectrometer (LTQ) equipped with a modified nanospray interface. Analysis of acidic N- and O-glycan standards revealed that good quality MS/MS spectra could be obtained when loading 1-3 fmol, a 10-fold increase in sensitivity compared to capillary-LC/MS at pH 8. Analysis of a complex mixture of O-glycans from porcine colonic mucins with nano-LC/MS and MS/MS at high pH revealed 170 oligosaccharides in one analysis, predominantly corresponding to sulfated glycans with up to 11 residues. Analysis of the same sample with capillary-LC/MS showed a lower sensitivity for multiply sulfated glycans. Nano-LC/MS of O-linked oligosaccharides on MUC2 from a human colon biopsy also illustrated that the ionization of oligosaccharides with multiple sialic acid groups was increased compared to those with only one sialic acid residue. Nano-LC/MS at high pH is, thus, a highly sensitive approach for the analysis of acidic oligosaccharides.
