A new method for displaying CE-MALDI-MS data for proteolytic digests is described. This data display mode yields distinct charge-based trends for plots of mass-to-charge (m/z) versus CE migration time. These trends arise owing to the in-solution charge state of the peptides, and this interpretation was confirmed by using empirical peptide electromigration models and peptide standards as charge-state markers. These charge-state specific trends exhibit analytical utility by providing additional chemical information about the peptides, which increases the confidence level of peptide identification and provides a rapid means for screening for posttranslationally modified peptides.
