The metabolism by human liver microsomes of several new illicit drugs, that is, N-(1-amino-3,3-dimethyl-1-oxobutan-2-yl)-1-(4-fluorobenzyl)-1H-indazole-3- carboxamide (ADB-FUBINACA), N-(1-amino-3-methyl-1-oxobutan-2-yl)-1- (4-fluorobenzyl)-1H-indazole-3-carboxamide (AB-FUBINACA), N-(1-amino-3-methyl-1-oxobutan-2-yl)-1-pentyl-1H-indazole-3-carboxamide(More)
To assess reactive oxygen species (ROS) production by detecting the fluorescent oxidation product, hydroethidine has been used extensively. The present study was undertaken to evaluate the potential of the hydroethidine derivative as a radiotracer to measure in vivo brain ROS production. [(3)H]-labeled N-methyl-2,3-diamino-6-phenyl-dihydrophenanthridine(More)
BACKGROUND Breast cancer is one of the most fearful diseases due to its increasing worldwide prevalence. A number of screening tests has been employed including clinical examinations and mammography. However, another screening method, which is a simple, not embarrassing, and low cost, is highly desired. Based on these findings, we are currently(More)
L-Pyroglutamic acid succinimidyl ester (L-PGA-OSu) and its isotopic variant (L-PGA[d5]-OSu) were newly synthesized and evaluated as the chiral labeling reagents for the enantioseparation of amino acids, in terms of separation efficiency by reversed-phase chromatography and detection sensitivity by ESI-MS/MS. The enantiomers of amino acids were easily(More)
A liquid chromatographic (LC) method for sensitive and selective fluorometric determination of p-hydroxyphenylethylamino group containing compounds is described. This method is based on an intramolecular excimer-forming fluorescence derivatization with a pyrene reagent, 4-(1-pyrene)butanoyl chloride, followed by reversed-phase LC. The analytes, containing(More)
A novel triazine-type chiral derivatization reagent, i.e., (S)-2,5-dioxopyrrolidin-1-yl-1-(4,6-dimethoxy-1,3,5-triazin-2-yl) pyrrolidine-2-carboxylate (DMT-(S)-Pro-OSu), was developed for the highly sensitive and selective detection of chiral amines and amino acids by UPLC-MS/MS analysis. The enantiomers of amino acids were easily labeled with the reagents(More)
RATIONALE A separation-oriented derivatization method using a specific fluorous affinity between perfluoroalkyl-containing compounds was applied to selective liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometric (LC/MS/MS) analysis of sialyl oligosaccharides. The perfluoroalkyl-labeled sialyl oligosaccharides could be selectively retained on an LC column with the(More)
A simultaneous, selective, sensitive and rapid liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry method was developed and validated for the quantification of gefitinib, erlotinib and afatinib in 250 μL samples of human blood plasma. Diluted plasma samples were extracted using a liquid-phase extraction procedure with tert-butyl methyl ether. The three drugs(More)
We describe a highly sensitive CE with laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) detection for the analysis of N-linked oligosaccharides in glycoproteins using rhodamine 110 as a fluorescence derivatization reagent. One CE separation is performed using a fused-silica capillary and neutral pH buffer conditions and allows for the separation of sialo-oligosaccharides(More)
The determination of polyamines and their N-acetylated forms was performed by ultraperformance liquid chromatography coupled with tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-MS/MS). The polyamines efficiently reacted with 4-(N,N-dimethylaminosulfonyl)-7-fluoro-2,1,3-benzoxadiazole (DBD-F) in 0.1 M borax (pH 9.3) at 60 °C for 30 min. The resulting derivatives were(More)
