High pretreatment tumor lactate content is associated with poor outcome after fractionated irradiation in human squamous cell carcinoma (hSCC) xenografts. Therefore, decreasing lactate content might be a promising approach for increasing tumor radiosensitivity. As the basis for such experiments, the...

Hydrophobic peptides are generally difficult to detect using matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry (MALDI-MS) because the majority of MALDI matrixes are hydrophilic and therefore have a low affinity for hydrophobic peptides. Here, we report on a novel matrix additive, o-alkylated...
