A method using liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS) has been developed for the determination of basal acetylcholine (ACh) in microdialysate from the striatum of freely moving rats. A microdialysis probe was surgically implanted into the striatum of the rats and Ringer's solution was used as the perfusion medium at a flow rate of 2(More)
Green-lipped mussels (Perna viridis) were collected from seven fish culture zones (FCZs) in Hong Kong and analyzed for okadaic acid (OA). A conventional HPLC method was modified by incorporating a proteinase K digestion step. Results suggest that a higher recovery (2.5 times higher) of OA was obtained from spiked samples after the addition of 1.08 mg(More)
Liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS) has been coupled to in vivo microdialysis for on-line monitoring of melatonin in a freely moving rat for a period of 15 hours. A microdialysis probe was surgically implanted into the jugular vein of the rat, and deionized water was used as the perfusion medium at a flow rate of 1.0 microL/min.(More)
A liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS) method has been developed for the determination of brain basal nucleosides (inosine, guanosine and adenosine) in microdialysates from the striatum and cortex of freely moving rats. A microdialysis probe was surgically implanted into the striatum or cortex of individual rats and Ringer's solution(More)
