Thyronines (THs) and thyronamines (TAMs) are two groups of endogenous iodine-containing signaling molecules whose representatives differ from each other only regarding the number and/or the position of the iodine atoms. Both groups of compounds are substrates of three deiodinase isozymes, which catalyze the sequential reductive removal of iodine from the respective precursor molecule. In this study, a novel analytical method applying liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) was developed. This method permitted the unequivocal, simultaneous identification and quantification of all THs and TAMs in the same biological sample. Furthermore, a liquid-liquid extraction procedure permitting the concurrent isolation of all THs and TAMs from biological matrices, namely deiodinase (Dio) reaction mixtures, was established. Method validation experiments with extracted TH and TAM analytes demonstrated that the method was selective, devoid of matrix effects, sensitive, linear over a wide range of analyte concentrations and robust in terms of reproducible recoveries, process efficiencies as well as intra-assay and inter-assay stability parameters. The method was applied to study the deiodination reactions of iodinated THs cata...Continue Reading
