In MS spectrums, puerarin (7) as an example of C-glycoside, gave two base ion peaks [M + H-[H.sub.2][O].sup.+] at m/z 399.1 and [M + H-2H-[CH.sub 2][O].sup.+] at m/z 351.0 when using the deprotonated molecule [[M + H].sup.+] at m/z 417.0 as the precursor ion, which were formed by clearage on the glycoside of D ring (Li et al.
The landward approaches would require considerable clearage of trees and an extensive trestle ramp.
The specific parameters were: error = 100 ppm; index mode = combined (MS+MS/MS); searching database parameter = trypsin; max missed clearage = one; variable modifications = acetyl (N-term), carbamidomethyl (C), and Oxidation (M); MS/MS Fragment Toleration = 0.2 Da; precursor tolerance = 0.2 Da; peptide charge = +1; maximum peptide rank = 10; minimum ion score C.I.% = 0.
