The tyrosine, tryptophan, and glutamate metabolic pathways play key roles on pathological state of neuronal functions and the change of their levels in biological systems reflects the progress degree of neuronal diseases. Comprehensive profiling of these metabolites is important to find new biomarkers for diagnosis or prognosis of various neuronal diseases. However, the overall profiling analysis of various neurochemicals in biological sample is confronted with several limitations due to their low concentration and physicochemical properties and the coexistence of matrices...

Modified nucleosides, metabolites of RNA, are potential biomarkers of cancer before the appearance of morphological abnormalities. It is of great significance to comprehensively detect and identify nucleosides in human urine for discovery of cancer biomarkers. However, the lower abundance, the greater polarity and the matrix effects make it difficult to detect urinary nucleosides. In this paper, an integrated method consisted of sample preparation followed by ultraperformance liquid chromatography quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometry (UPLC Q-TOF/MS) detection and primary identification, then ultra-high performance liquid chromatography coupled with hybrid triple quadrupole linear ion trap mass spectrometer (UHPLC Q-Trap/MS) further identification and validation were introduced...

BACKGROUND: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a complex, chronic autoimmune disease characterized by various inflammatory symptoms, including joint swelling, joint pain, and both structural and functional joint damage. The most commonly used animal model for studying RA is mice with collagen-induced arthritis (CIA); the wide use of this model is due primarily to many similarities with RA in human patients. Metabolomics is used increasingly in biological studies for diagnosing disease and for predicting and evaluating drug interventions, as a large number of disease-associated metabolites can be analyzed and interpreted from a biological perspective...

We report a one-pot two-nanoprobe approach coupled to mass spectrometry for simultaneous quantification and post-translational modification (PTM) profiling of targeted protein in biofluid. Using N-glycoprotein as model, the assay employs two nanoprobes, antibody-conjugated SiO2 nanoparticles and lectin-conjugated magnetic Fe3O4 nanoparticles, to achieve target glycoprotein isolation from biofluid and subsequent glycopeptide enrichment in a single tube. As demonstrated on α-fetoprotein (AFP), a serum biomarker for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), the assay has high purification specificity (20 glycopeptides) with 2-fold and 10-fold superior total glycopeptide intensity compared to non-one-pot method (9 glycopeptides) or without enrichment (6 glycopeptides), respectively...

AIM: The alpha-synuclein (α-syn) level in human cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), as measured by immunoassays, is promising as a Parkinson's disease (PD) biomarker. However, the levels of total α-syn are inconsistent among studies with large cohorts and different measurement platforms. Total α-syn level also does not correlate with disease severity or progression. Here, we developed a highly sensitive Multiple Reaction Monitoring (MRM) method to measure absolute CSF α-syn peptide concentrations without prior enrichment or fractionation, aiming to discover new candidate biomarkers...

Cardiac myosin binding protein C (cMyBP-C) is a cardiac structural and regulatory protein; mutations of cMyBP-C are frequently associated with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) and dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). Cardiac special transcription factors may regulate the expression of cMyBP-C. However, the role of cMyBP-C in congenital heart diseases (CHD) remains poorly understood. In the current study, western blotting and the MRM approach showed that cMyBP-C expression was significantly reduced in fetuses with CHD compared to those without...

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a progressive, neurodegenerative disease, characterised by decline of memory, cognitive function and changes in behaviour. Generic markers of lipid peroxidation are increased in AD and reactive oxygen species have been suggested to be involved in the aetiology of cognitive decline. Carotenoids are depleted in AD serum, therefore we have compared serum lipid oxidation between AD and age-matched control subjects before and after carotenoid supplementation. The novel oxidised phospholipid biomarker 1-palmitoyl-2-(5'-oxo-valeroyl)-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (POVPC) was analysed using electrospray ionisation tandem mass spectrometry (MS) with multiple reaction monitoring (MRM), 8-isoprostane (IsoP) was measured by ELISA and ferric reducing antioxidant potential (FRAP) was measured by a colorimetric assay...

Malonic acid (MA), methylmalonic acid (MMA), and ethylmalonic acid (EMA) metabolites are implicated in various non-cancer disorders that are associated with inborn-error metabolism. In this study, we have slightly modified the published 3-nitrophenylhydrazine (3NPH) derivatization method and applied it to derivatize MA, MMA, and EMA to their hydrazone derivatives, which were amenable for liquid chromatography- mass spectrometry (LC-MS) quantitation. 3NPH was used to derivatize MA, MMA, and EMA, and multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) transitions of the corresponding derivatives were determined by product-ion experiments...

The distribution of analyte concentrations in hair across the scalp has not been thoroughly investigated. Differences in concentrations depending on sampling location are problematic, especially when measuring a second strand to confirm the result of the first measurement. Aiming at a better understanding of the concentration differences, the distribution of ethyl glucuronide (EtG) and caffeine concentrations in hair across the entire head of one test subject was investigated by dividing the scalp completely into regions of ca...

The efficiency of gluten extraction is of critical importance to the results derived from any analytical method for gluten detection and quantitation, whether it employs reagent-based technology (antibodies) or analytical instrumentation (mass spectrometry). If the target proteins are not efficiently extracted, the end result will be an under-estimation in the gluten content posing a health risk to people affected by conditions such as celiac disease (CD) and nonceliac gluten sensitivity (NCGS). Five different extraction protocols were investigated using LC-MRM-MS for their ability to efficiently and reproducibly extract gluten...

Currently the pharmacokinetic (PK) research of herbal medicines is still limited and facing critical technical challenges on quantitative analysis of multi-components from biological matrices which often accompanied by lacking of authentic standards and low concentration. This present work contributes to the development of an integrated strategy for extensive pharmacokinetics assessments, and a selective and sensitive method independent of authentic standards for multi-components analysis based on the use of ultra-performance liquid chromatography/quadrupole-time-of-flight/MS(E) (UPLC-TOF-MS(E)) and UPLC-TOF-MRM (rnhanced target)...

Previous studies have revealed the activation of neutral sphingomyelinase (N-SMase)/ceramide pathway in hepatic tissue following warm liver ischemia reperfusion (IR) injury. Excessive ceramide accumulation is known to potentiate apoptotic stimuli and a link between apoptosis and endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress has been established in hepatic IR injury. Thus, this study determined the role of selective N-SMase inhibition on ER stress and apoptotic markers in a rat model of liver IR injury. Selective N-SMase inhibitor was administered via intraperitoneal injections...

Grapevine stilbenes are a family of polyphenols which derive from trans-resveratrol having antifungal and antimicrobial properties, thus being considered as phytoalexins. In addition to their diverse bioactive properties in animal models, they highlight a strong potential in human health maintenance and promotion. Due to this relevance, highly-specific qualitative and quantitative methods of analysis are necessary to accurately analyze stilbenes in different matrices derived from grapevine. Here, we developed a rapid, sensitive, and specific analysis method using ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography coupled to triple-quadrupole mass spectrometry (UHPLC-QqQ) in MRM mode to detect and quantify five grapevine stilbenes, trans-resveratrol, trans-piceid, trans-piceatannol, trans-pterostilbene, and trans-ε-viniferin, whose interest in relation to human health is continuously growing...

Targeted proteomics approaches are of value for deep and accurate quantification of protein abundance. Extending such methods to quantify large numbers of proteins requires the construction of predefined targeted assays. We developed a targeted proteomics platform-in vitro proteome-assisted multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) for protein absolute quantification (iMPAQT)-by using >18,000 human recombinant proteins, thus enabling protein absolute quantification on a genome-wide scale. Our platform comprises experimentally confirmed MRM assays of mass tag (mTRAQ)-labeled peptides to allow for rapid and straightforward measurement of the absolute abundance of predefined sets of proteins by mass spectrometry...

PURPOSE: Development of delayed graft function (DGF) following kidney transplant is associated with poor outcomes. An ability to rapidly identify patients with DGF versus those with immediate graft function (IGF) may facilitate the treatment of DGF and the research needed to improve prognosis. The purpose of this study was to use a Targeted Urine Proteome Assay (TUPA) to identify protein biomarkers of delayed recovery from kidney transplant. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: Potential biomarkers were identified using the TUPA Multiple Reaction Monitoring (MRM) assay to interrogate the relative DGF/IGF levels of expression of 167 proteins in urine taken 12-18 hours after kidney implantation from 21 DGF, 15 SGF (slow graft function), and 16 IGF patients...

Propafenone is a potent antiarrhythmic agent; clinically propafenone has been used for a number of cardiac arrhythmias because it possesses multiple modes of action, via beta adrenergic receptor blockade and calcium antagonistic activity. Propafenone (PPF) exhibits extensive saturable presystemic biotransformation (first pass effect) resulting into two active metabolites; 5- hydroxypropafenone (5-OH PPF) formed by CYP2D6 and N-depropylpropafenone (NDP) formed by both CYP3A4 and CYP1A2 enzymes. A specific and sensitive LC-MS/MS method was developed and validated for quantitation of PPF, 5-OH PPF and NDP using turboion spray in a positive ion mode...

Green tea (GT) is one of the most consumed beverages worldwide. Tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) belong to the oral targeted therapy that gained much interest in oncology practice, among which are erlotinib (ERL) and lapatinib (LAP). Since green tea polyphenols (GTP) are known to be inhibitors of receptor tyrosine kinases, GTE could likely potentiate the anticancer effect of TKIs, but with a possibility of pharmacokinetic (PK) interaction with co-administered TKIs. In this study, the effect of GTE on the PK of ERL/LAP in rats was studied...
