Summary of "PE-SERF: A sensitivity-improved experiment to measure J in crowded spectra."

Aiming at facilitating the analysis of molecular structure, the gradient-encoded selective refocusing methods (G-SERF) and a great number of its variants for measuring proton-proton coupling constants have been proposed. However, the sensitivity is an issue in the 2D gradient-encoded experiments, because the signal intensity is determined by the slice thickness of the sample that depends on encoding gradient and the bandwidth of selective pulses which is limited by the smallest chemical shift difference of any two coupled protons. Here, we present a method dubbed PE-SERF (perfect echo selective refocusing) which can determine all J values involving a selected proton with improved sensitivity compared to original G-SERF experiment. The modules of perfect echo involving selective pulses and gradient-encoded selective refocusing are combined in the method, so that the unwanted J couplings arising from coupled spin pairs in the same sample slice would be nullified. In this way, instead of single proton, a pair of coupled protons is allowed to share a sample slice, and thus the slice thickness can be increased and the spectral sensitivity can be improved. The performance of the method is demonstrated by experiments on quinine and strychnine.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Measures for assessing the results of diagnostic and screening tests. Sensitivity represents the proportion of truly diseased persons in a screened population who are identified as being diseased by the test. It is a measure of the probability of correctly diagnosing a condition. Specificity is the proportion of truly nondiseased persons who are so identified by the screening test. It is a measure of the probability of correctly identifying a nondiseased person. (From Last, Dictionary of Epidemiology, 2d ed)

Composition of images of EARTH or other planets from data collected during SPACE FLIGHT by remote sensing instruments onboard SPACECRAFT. The satellite sensor systems measure and record absorbed, emitted, or reflected energy across the spectra, as well as global position and time.

A mass spectrometric technique that is used for the analysis of a wide range of biomolecules, such as glycoalkaloids, glycoproteins, polysaccharides, and peptides. Positive and negative fast atom bombardment spectra are recorded on a mass spectrometer fitted with an atom gun with xenon as the customary beam. The mass spectra obtained contain molecular weight recognition as well as sequence information.
