What MS method did you use ? Does N correspond to the expected molecular
mass of any kind of a fragment ? What cleavage methods did you use ?
(Your fragments may very well be all chemically modified, and then the
N-60.7 would be a small fraction of the unmodified peptide fragment).
List all the chemicals that have come in contact with your peptide.
If you provide more details, we might be able to help you better.
