BACKGROUND Liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) with electrospray ionization is robust and allows accurate measurement of both low- and high-molecular weight components of complex mixtures. We developed a LC-MS/MS method for the analysis of methylmalonic acid (MMA), a biochemical marker for inherited disorders of propionate metabolism(More)
Elevated basal insulin secretion under fasting conditions together with insufficient stimulated insulin release is an important hallmark of type 2 diabetes, but the mechanisms controlling basal insulin secretion remain unclear. Membrane rafts exist in pancreatic islet cells and spatially organize membrane ion channels and proteins controlling exocytosis,(More)
