Electrospray mass spectrometry coupled to liquid chromatography was utilized to measure two PKC neuronal substrates, B-50/GAP-43 and neurogranin, in single rat brain areas. Aliquots of perchloric acid extracts were directly injected and mass spectra recorded. At elution times of 14.2 and 27.0 min two molecular species of MW 7450 and 23 602 Da were observed. These values are in excellent agreement for the expected MW for rat neurogranin and B-50/GAP-43. The presence of molecular species shifted by 80 mass units in both cases indicates that these proteins are present in phosphorylated forms in cortical and hippocampal extracts.
