Conjugation Reactions of Cyclodepsipeptide to Glutathionyl Adducts by Direct 'In-Beam' Synthesis Under Negative-Ion Fast-Atom Bombardment Conditions

Rapid Commun Mass Spectrom. 1994 Oct;8(10):844-8. doi: 10.1002/rcm.1290081010.


The conjugation products of E-destruxin (cyclodepsipeptide) with glutathione have been identified by fast-atom bombardment mass spectrometry. Appropriate conditions were developed for cyclodepsipeptide substrate, which enabled the direct, dynamic mass spectra analysis of spontaneous as well as glutathione-s-transferase catalyzed conjugation reactions. Application to the most active cyclopeptide in the series of destruxins yielded glutathionyl adduct.
