Glycerolipid MS/MS Prediction

Match MS/MS peaklist to a database of precursor/product ions

(Commonly occurring chain substituents used to generate the database are listed at the bottom of the page. One should be aware that other alternative glycerolipid structures not included in the database may also match the user m/z input)

Enter peaklist in PKL format:
Space-delimited [Precursor ion, intensity, charge-state] in 1st row and [Product ion, intensity] in subsequent rows

Search Parameters (negative ion mode)

Intensity Threshold
Precursor ion mass tolerance (+/- m/z)
Product ion mass tolerance (+/- m/z)
Class (MG,DG,TG)
Ion type
Minimum number of ion matches

Micromass (PKL) format
The PKL format is similar to the DTA file format, but supports multiple MS/MS datasets in a single file. The first line of a PKL dataset contains the observed m/z, intensity, and charge state of the precursor ion as a triplet of space separated values. Subsequent lines contain space separated pairs of fragment ion m/z and intensity values.
