Analogues of the Alternaria mycotoxin tenuazonic acid (TA, biosynthesized by the fungus from the amino acid isoleucine) derived from valine (ValTA), leucine (LeuTA), alanine (AlaTA) and phenylalanine (PheTA) were synthesized and characterized by mass spectrometry (MS) and (1)H nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. Concentrations of stock solutions(More)
SCOPE The causal relationship between diet-induced obesity and metabolic disorders is not clear yet. One hypothesis is whether the obese state or high-fat diet per se affects intestinal barrier function provoking metabolic comorbidities. METHODS AND RESULTS In three independent experiments with AKR/J, SWR/J, or BL/6J mice, we addressed the impact of(More)
BACKGROUND Obesity has been associated with a more severe disease course in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and epidemiological data identified dietary fats but not obesity as risk factors for the development of IBD. Crohn's disease is one of the two major IBD phenotypes and mostly affects the terminal ileum. Despite recent observations that high fat diets(More)
The Alternaria mycotoxin tenuazonic acid (TA) was quantified in fruit juices (n = 50), cereals (n = 12) and spices (n = 38) using a recently developed stable isotope dilution assay (SIDA). [13 C6,15 N]-TA was used as the internal standard. Method validation revealed low limits of detection (LODs) of 0.15 μg/kg (fruit juices), 1.0 μg/kg (cereals) and 17(More)
A new quantitation method based on a multiple stable isotope dilution assay (SIDA) was developed for polyethylene glycol (PEG) homologues from PEG mixtures with average molecular weights (MW) of 400, 1500, 3000 and 4000Da in urine. Seven [(13)C4(2)H4] and two [(13)C8(2)H8]PEG homologues were synthesized and served as labelled internal standards for SIDA.(More)
