Lipids are important components in all biological tissues having many essential roles associated with the proper function of the organism. Their analysis in the biological tissues and body fluids is a challenging task due to the extreme sample complexity of polar lipids and to their amphiphilic character. In this work, we describe a new method for the(More)
A new continuous comprehensive two-dimensional liquid chromatography-electrospray ionization mass spectrometry method has been developed for the lipidomic characterization of complex biological samples. The reversed-phase ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography with a C18 column (150 mm × 1 mm, 1.7 μm) used in the first dimension makes the separation(More)
The identification and quantitation of a wide range of lipids in complex biological samples is an essential requirement for the lipidomic studies. High-performance liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (HPLC/MS) has the highest potential to obtain detailed information on the whole lipidome, but the reliable quantitation of multiple lipid classes is still(More)
The comprehensive approach for the lipidomic characterization of human breast cancer and surrounding normal tissues is based on hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography (HILIC)-electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) quantitation of polar lipid classes of total lipid extracts followed by multivariate data analysis using unsupervised(More)
A novel normal-phase (NP) ultrahigh-performance liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (UHPLC/MS) method is developed for a separation and quantitation of nonpolar lipid classes occurring in human plasma, erythrocytes and plasma lipoprotein fractions. The baseline class separation of cholesteryl esters (CE), cholesterol, triacylglycerols (TG), regioisomers(More)
The characterization of differences among polar lipid classes in tumors and surrounding normal tissues of 20 kidney cancer patients is performed by hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography (HILIC) coupled to electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS). The detailed analysis of identified lipid classes using relative abundances of characteristic(More)
Lipids form a significant part of animal organs and they are responsible for important biological functions, such as semi-permeability and fluidity of membranes, signaling activity, anti-inflammatory processes, etc. We have performed a comprehensive nontargeted lipidomic characterization of porcine brain, heart, kidney, liver, lung, spinal cord, spleen, and(More)
Differences among lipidomic profiles of healthy volunteers, obese people and three groups of cardiovascular disease (CVD) patients are investigated with the goal to differentiate individual groups based on the multivariate data analysis (MDA) of lipidomic data from plasma, erythrocytes and lipoprotein fractions of more than 50 subjects. Hydrophilic(More)
The goal of this work is a systematic optimization of hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography (HILIC) separation of acidic lipid classes (namely phosphatidic acids-PA, lysophosphatidic acids-LPA, phosphatidylserines-PS and lysophosphatidylserines-LPS) and other lipid classes under mass spectrometry (MS) compatible conditions. The main parameters(More)
RATIONALE The goal of this work is the comparison of differences in the lipidomic compositions of human cell lines derived from normal and cancerous breast tissues, and tumor vs. normal tissues obtained after the surgery of breast cancer patients.
