MALDI-MS was used to confirm the cDNA derived amino acid sequence of HMW subunit 1Dx5 and an E. coli-expressed repetitive Mr 58 000 peptide based on residues 102–643. Analysis of the Mr 58 000 peptide and of tryptic peptides separated by RP-HPLC showed that the experimentally determined Mr are consistent, with the calculated values, within the experimental error. This indicates a substantial correctness of the gene derived sequence. In the same way, analysis of tryptic peptides from 1Dx5 allowed about 80% of the sequence to be confirmed, covering residues 1–669 with the exception of two short peptides. There was also good agreement with sequence of the Mr 58 000 peptide in the region of identity. The results, giving evidence for a substantial correctness of a large part of the sequence, confirm the absence of extensive glycosylation in subunit 1Dx5 and demonstrate the value of MALDI-MS for direct sequence analysis of HMW subunits and similar proteins.
