The Dereplicator found 1643 potential annotations on GNPS Massives datasets (April 2016). 59.7% of these annotations were manually curated by looking at the dereplicator results, and cross-validated the sample with the known biological sources of the peptide. 35% of these annotations were found in four Massivedatasets: the Cyanobacteria dataset from the Gerwick lab (MSV000078568) and the Kerry lab (MSV000079050); the fungi samples from the Cichewicz lab collection (MSV000079098) and Pseudomonas samples (MSV000079619).
Annotations were then classified in four categories:
Level 1 (identification): the peptide has been isolated and has been characterized by NMR from the same sample.
Level 2 or 3 (annotation): the peptide has been previously isolated in the same species or genus.
Unlikely: the peptide has been isolated in an other micro-organism familly.
Unsetteled: the biological source or the sample origin is not clear.
Results are showed in the following tables and figures.
Automatic annotations of the Dereplicator must be confirmed manually:
- The MS/MS spectrum from the raw file must be inspected (consistency, noise level, ...)
- The adducts detected must be confirmed using the MS1 spectrum (mono-charged, di-charged ?, protonated adduct ?, ...)
- Main non-annotated fragment ions should be manually annotated.
- Look at the biological source(s) of the peptide (Google scholar, Dictionnary of Natural Products, AntiMarin, MarinLit, ...), to see if it is consistent with the sample type.
- If genome sequence(s) are available, genome mining can be performed to search potential biogenetic gene clusters.
