Gas phase ion formation from a liquid beam of arginine in aqueous solution by IR multiphoton excitation
MetadataShow full item record
A liquid beam of aqueous solutions of arginine (AH), its hydrochloric acid salt (AH2Cl) and its sodium salt (ANa) was irradiated with a pulsed IR laser at 3509 cm−1 (2.85 μm). Positive and negative ions ejected to the gas phase were mass analyzed. From the AH2Cl and the ANa aqueous solutions, the pre-existing ions in the solution were ejected directly to the gas phase. From the AH solution, on the other hand, both a protonated arginine ion, AH2+ and an argininate ion, A− were observed in the gas phase. Production of these ions is accounted for the four-photon excitation of water molecules in the solution.

L-Arginine is essential for pancreatic β-cell functional integrity, metabolism and defense from inflammatory challengeKrause, M.; McClenaghan, N.; Flatt, P.; Hamem de Bittencourt, P.; Murphy, C.; Newsholme, Philip (2011)In this work, our aim was to determine whether L-arginine (a known insulinotropic amino acid) can promote a shift of β-cell intermediary metabolism favoring glutathione (GSH) and glutathione disulfide (GSSG) antioxidant ...
Neuroprotective peptides fused to arginine-rich cell penetrating peptides: Neuroprotective mechanism likely mediated by peptide endocytic propertiesMeloni, B.; Milani, D.; Edwards, A.; Anderton, R.; O'Hare Doig, R.; Fitzgerald, Melinda; Knuckey, N. (2015)Several recent studies have demonstrated that TAT and other arginine-rich cell penetrating peptides (CPPs) have intrinsic neuroprotective properties in their own right. Examples, we have demonstrated that in addition to ...
