The effects of acute physiological stressors (5 s tail pinch, handling and forced swimming at +25 and +5 degrees C for 3 min each) on serotonin (5-HT) release in the mouse brain were investigated using in vivo microdialysis. The extracellular 5-HT levels were determined by a newly developed highly-sensitive and selective high-performance liquid(More)
This paper describes a sensitive and selective liquid chromatographic method with fluorescence detection for determination of histamine in brain microdialysis samples from awake rats. Samples containing histamine (10 microl) were derivatized with 20 microl of the reagent consisting of 3 mM 4-(1-pyrene)butyric acid N-hydroxysuccinimide ester (PSE), 3 mM(More)
The present paper provides an overview on currently developed derivatization chemistries and techniques for determination of monoamine neurotransmitters serotonin (5-HT), norepinephrine (NE) and dopamine (DA) in microdialysis samples by microbore liquid chromatography with fluorescence detection. In mild alkaline conditions, 5-hydroxyindoles and(More)
Metabolomic studies conducted for evaluating cancer pathogenesis and progression by monitoring the amino acids metabolic balance hold great promise for assessing current and future anticancer treatments. We performed a comprehensive quantification of 21 amino acids concentrations in cultured human colorectal adenocarcinoma cells treated with the anticancer(More)
A high-sensitive liquid chromatographic method based on precolumn derivatization and fluorescence detection allowing simultaneous determination of serotonin (5-HT), noradrenaline (NA) and dopamine (DA) in brain microdialysis samples is described. 5-HT, NA and DA were derivatized with benzylamine and 1,2-diphenylethylenediamine in the presence of potassium(More)
The present paper describes a new method for on-line determination of 5-HT in brain microdialysates from awake rats by microbore column liquid chromatography with post-column derivatization and fluorescence detection. The derivatization reagent contained 1 mM benzylamine and 0.5 mM potassium hexacyanoferrate (III), both dissolved in a mixture of(More)
