refine, potential N-terminus modifications
The value of this parameter is an ASCII string, of the format M1@[,M2@[,..., Mn@[
where Mi is a floating point number (potential modification mass in Daltons).
The format of this parameter is the same as the residue, potential modification mass parameter. When a valid string is present for this parameter, a search with cleavage at every residue is performed, and the listed potential N-terminal modifications are tested. This test is done on only the first 50 residues for each protein in the refinement list. If a more general N-terminal modification is desirable, then add a modification string with "[" as the residue to modify into the potential modification list.
