Cyclic peptide nomenclature guide
A fragment ion is labeled with a four- part descriptor of the general formula x nJZ, where x is the designation for the ion ( e.

Hence we refrain from denoting the L- enantiomer when using the three- letter code, whereas the D- enantiomer and the racemate are designated by - D- and - DL-, respectively. These recommendations extend rule 3AA- 19. Peptide Nomenclature Guide Symbols and structures for amino acids Common ( “ proteinogenic” or “ coded” ) amino acids have a three- letter symbol and are also represented by a one- letter symbol. A nomenclature system for labeling fragment ions of cyclic peptides is proposed.
