Abstract

This study reports for the first time the complete LC-ESI-MS and MS/MS spectra performed in negative ion mode of saturated unsulfated chondroitin oligosaccharides up to 16-mers and comparison with hyaluronic acid (HA) oligomers differing only for the nature of the hexosamine residue. MS/MS of the chondroitin disaccharide on the singly-charged precursor at m/z 396.1 afforded a glycosidic cleavage C1 product ion at m/z 192.9. In the tetrasaccharide, C2 (m/z 396.0) and C3 (m/z 572.0) product anions were generated by glycosidic cleavage. A C5 [M-2H]-2 product ion at m/z 475.1 was generated by the glycosidic cleavage of the hexasaccharide, and a C7 ion (m/z 664.6, charge state of -2) was produced from the octasaccharide. The same fragmentation pattern of deprotonated oligomers was observed for the largest oligosaccharides, from 10- to 16-mers. There is no previous report of MS/MS spectra for unsulfated chondroitin oligomers of these sizes. Nonsulfated saturated chondroitin oligosaccharides with x-mer units and larger than a tetrasaccharide dissociate to almost exclusively form CX-1-type ions. Saturated HA oligomers also afforded the same fragmentation pattern of deprotonated oligomers by ESI-MS and MS/MS analyses. Thus, under the experimental conditions used in the current study we were unable to distinguish between unsulfated chondroitin and HA.
