Amino Acid Residue Composition

Residue Monoisotopic Mass

Delta Mass

Glycine (any AA) C2H4NO (+H) 58.0293 0
Acetyl-Glycine C4H6NO2 100.0399 42.0106

For each internal Lysine add 42.0106 u

-

Lysine and Glutamine have nearly isobaric mass, an acetylation of the Lysine side chain differentiates these two amino acids by 42 u.
