High-performance liquid chromatographic determination of purine and pyrimidine bases, ribonucleosides, deoxyribonucleosides and cyclic ribonucleotides in biological fluids

Journal of Chromatography
R A de AbreuE D Schretlen


A method is presented for the separation and quantitative determination of compounds normally related to purine and pyrimidine metabolism in biological material. The retention behaviour of nucleobases, ribonucleosides, deoxyribonucleosides and cyclic ribonucleotides has been systematically investigated by reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography using a non-linear gradient. Ultimately a separation of the purine and pyrimidine compounds was achieved in a 35-min run with an average detection limit of 5-10 pmol per injection. Recoveries of standards added to urine, plasma or serum were 96 +/- 5%.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Lipidomics & Rhinovirus Infection

Lipidomics can be used to examine the lipid species involved with pathogenic conditions, such as viral associated inflammation. Discovered the latest research on Lipidomics & Rhinovirus Infection.
