Serum metabolome of 40 age-related macular degeneration patients and 20 control samples was analyzed using untargeted mass spectrometry. We used data dependent acquisition data to build a MS/MS spectral assay library for more than 1,000 compounds and performed targeted extraction of MS2 ion chromatograms from data independent acquisition analysis.

Data independent acquisition-mass spectrometry (DIA-MS) coupled with liquid chromatography is a promising approach for rapid, automatic sampling of MS/MS data in untargeted metabolomics. However, wide isolation windows in DIA-MS generate MS/MS spectra containing a mixed population of fragment ions together with their precursor ions. This precursor-fragment ion map in a comprehensive MS/MS spectral library is crucial for relative quantification of fragment ions uniquely representative of each pre ...[more]
