Simultaneous determination of biliary cile acids in rat: electron impact and ammonia chemical ionization mass spectrometric analyses of bile acids

K KuriyamaT Murata


Bile acids in the rat bile were fractionated into unconjugated, glycine- and taurine-conjugated fractions by employing piperidino-hydroxypropyl Sephadex LH-20 ion-exchange chromatography. Subsequently, these fractions were analyzed by gas-liquid chromatography (GLC) and GLC-mass spectrometry using a Silicone AN-600 column. Not only lithocholic acid, deoxycholic acid, chenodeoxycholic acid, hyodeoxycholic acid, ursodeoxycholic acid and cholic acid, but also alpha- and beta-muricholic acids were quantitatively and simultaneously detectable in conjugated and unconjugated fractions, respectively. In the unconjugated and conjugated fractions, varying amounts of the unidentified bile acid were detected upon GLC. The electron impact and ammonia chemical ionization mass spectrometric results and catalytic hydrogenation on the compound indicate that this bile acid seems to be a derivative of beta-muricholic acid having a double bond in the side chain. The present method is suitable to the simultaneous and quantitative determination of unconjugated and glycine- and taurine-conjugated bile acids in the rat bile.

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.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.
