Application of MALDI-MSI for detection of antimicrobial peptides in tissues of the marine invertebrate Arenicola marina

A L Maltseva, V V Starunov, P A Zykin
MALDI imaging mass-spectrometry (MALDI-MSI) is a highly informative approach combining morphology with molecular data. It is widely applied in neuroscience, plant science, cancer-biology, biomedicine, including clinical, and preclinical studies, but not for investigation of endogenous peptides/proteins or metabolites in marine invertebrates. We examined the informativeness of MALDIMSI for analysis of distribution of antimicrobial peptides (arenicins) in the polychete Arenicola marina and
