The goal of this experiment was to determine if trends exist in the fragmentation pat- terns of heptapeptides containing lysine and its non-protein amino acid analogs (or- nithine, daba, dapa). Previous research in the laboratory of Dr. J. C. Poutsma on pentapeptides suggested that the length of the side chain on the lysine analog played a role in peptide fragmentation pathways. This study, however, found no such connection between length of side chain and fragmentation patterns suggesting that as a peptide lengthens the flexibility of the peptide bonds outweigh the side chain length factor in determining fragmentation patterns.
