IL). Electrospray ionization-MS was performed working with an Agilent 6120 Quadrupole MSD mass spectrometer (Agilent Technologies, Santa Clara, CA) equipped with an Agilent 1200 Series Quaternary LC program and an Eclipse XDB-C18 column (150 mm 4.6 mm, five m, 80 . High-resolution mass spectroscopy (HRMS) was obtained from either the University of Kentucky Mass Spectrometry Core Facility or from the University of Minnesota, Department of Chemistry Mass Spectrometry Facility. NMR data were collected employing a Varian Unity Inova 400 or 500 MHz Spectrometer (Varian, Inc., Palo Alto, CA) at the University of Kentucky, plus a Bruker Avance III 600 MHz spectrometer equipped having a 1.7 mm 1H(13C/15N) cryoprobe at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.FEBS Lett.
