Experiments were performed under alkaline conditions, in the presence of ethanolamine (pH 10.95). We observed that the presence of copper(II) ions induces the aggregation of the peptide and the formation of copper-bound complexes with higher molecular mass is favored, such as the oligomer complexes [3M+2Cu-3H](+) and [4M+3Cu-5H](+). At 1:1 peptide-copper(II) ion ratio, the singly charged [3M+2Cu-3H](+) oligomer complex is the base peak in the mass spectrum. Metal ion-induced oligomerization of neurotoxic peptides is well known in the literature; however, there are very few examples in which such oligomerization was directly observed by mass spectrometry. Our results show that application of short peptides can be useful to study the mechanism of metal ion binding and metal ion-induced oligomerization of peptides.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Hudecz, Ferenc</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Copper-induced oligomerization of peptides : a model study</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Drochioiu, Gabi</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2011-03-22T17:54:46Z</dcterms:available> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2011-03-22T17:54:46Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Schlosser, Gitta</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Stefanescu, Raluca</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Przybylski, Michael</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:issued>2007</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Publ. in: European Journal of Mass Spectrometry 13 (2007), 5, pp. 331-337</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:creator>Schlosser, Gitta</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Stefanescu, Raluca</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
