  • High-performance liquid chromatography with electro-chemical detection (HPLCEC) has become well accepted as a sensitive method for determining a wide variety of organic and inorganic compounds. In these laboratories, the authors have been interested in developing analytical methods for trace metal determinations of metals such as Cu, Ni, Cr(III), Cr(VI), Mn, Fe, Co, Hg, and Pb by the HPLCES method in industrial effluents. However, the instrumentation developed in these earlier studies has not been fully automated as required for long-term monitoring. This paper describes the design of a new completely automated HPLEC system for on-line monitoring.
  • A sensitive assay for catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) activity by high-performance liquid chromatography with on-line radiochemical detection was described. The method was based on the measurement of /sup 3/H- labeled 3-O- and 4-O-methylated products of the substrate, 3,4- dihydroxybenzoic acid, using S-adenosyl-L-(methyl-/sup 3/H)methionine as the methyl donor, or the measurement of /sup 14/C-labeled 3-O- and 4-O-methylated products of the substrate, (7-/sup 14/C)dopamine. The reaction products were determined from the incubation mixture after removal of protein by injecting an aliquot into the liquid chromatograph. The detection limit with counting efficiency of 40% was 0.45 pmol /sup 3/H-labeled product, and 0. 04 pmol /supmore » 14/C-labeled product with 61% counting efficiency. The method is suitable for assaying membrane-bound and soluble COMT activities in the brain tissue and for calculation of meta/para product ratios.« less
  • We report on the design and application of a high-efficiency multiple-capillary liquid chromatography (LC) system for high-throughput proteome analysis. The multiple-capillary LC system was operated at the pressure of 10,000 psi using commercial LC pumps to deliver the mobile phase and newly developed passive feedback valves to switch the mobile phase flow and introduce samples. The multiple-capillary LC system was composed of several serially connected dual-capillary column devices. The dual-capillary column approach was designed to eliminate the time delay for regeneration (or equilibrium) of the capillary column after its use under the mobile phase gradient condition (i.e. one capillary columnmore » was used in separation and the other was washed using mobile phase A). The serially connected dual-capillary columns and ESI sources were operated independently, and could be used for either''backup'' operation or with other mass spectrometer(s). This high-efficiency multiple-capillary LC system uses switching valves for all operations and is highly amenable to automation. The separations efficiency of dual-capillary column device, optimal capillary dimensions (column length and packed particle size), suitable mobile phases for electrospray, and the capillary re-generation were investigated. A high magnetic field (11.5 tesla) Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance (FTICR) mass spectrometer was coupled on-line with this high-efficiency multiple-capillary LC system through an electrospray ionization source. The capillary LC provided a peak capacity of {approx}600, and the 2-D capillary LC-FTICR provided a combined resolving power of > 6 x 10 7 polypeptide isotopic distributions. For yeast cellular tryptic digests, > 100,000 polypeptides were typically detected, and {approx}1,000 proteins can be characterized in a single run.« less
  • Fermentation processes still lack rapid, reliable, and quantitative methodology for the real time analysis of substrates and products. Real time data on fermentation components lend itself not only to monitoring complex mixtures, but also to simple control on demand features. Some of the latest method employed involve the use of immobilized enzyme probes to monitor a substrate such as glucose, or a product such as ethanol in an ultrafiltered stream. Mass spectrometers have been used to analyze fermentation off-gases for volatile components such as O/sub 2/, CO/sub 2/, and ethanol. Each of the enzyme sensor methods is substrate specific andmore » a complex fermentation requires the monitoring of several soluble components. Recently, Ivie proposed using an automated HPLC system to monitor and control an ethanol fermentation. An HPLC system has the advantage of being able to discriminate between several different components, usually in less than 15 min, depending on proper column selection. However, samples must be periodically removed from the fermenter, filtered and manually placed in the HPLC injector system for analysis. The system described here uses an automated, computer controlled HPLC system. The unit was fitted with a continuous flow-through sample vial for the on-line analysis of fermentation broths. Results of monitoring a simple yeast fermentatin of glucose to ethanol are reported.« less
  • Isepamicin, the 1-N-(S-alpha-hydroxy-beta-aminopropionyl) derivative of gentamicin B, is a new aminoglycoside antibiotic, which not only has most of the properties of amikacin but also is effective against several amikacin-resistant strains of bacteria. The drug was assayed in guinea-pig and human plasma with a high-performance liquid chromatographic procedure using precolumn derivatization with 1-fluoro-2,4-dinitrobenzene and ultraviolet detection. Linearity was established over the range 0.5-40 micrograms/ml using 50 microliters of plasma. Accuracy has a mean relative error of less than 3% and precision a mean coefficient of variation of 5%. Isepamicin was determined without interference from plasma constituents or other drugs commonly prescribedmore » during aminoglycoside therapy. This procedure correlates well with radioimmunoassay and can be used either in experimental studies or therapeutic monitoring of plasma levels.« less
