A novel on-line two dimensional liquid chromatography (2D LC) based on stop-flow mode coupled with electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) method was established to separate lipids in human plasma. Hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography (HILIC) in the first dimension and reversed-phase liquid chromatography (RP LC) in the second dimension(More)
A comprehensive metabonomic method, in combination with fingerprint analysis and target analysis, was performed to reveal potential mechanisms of berberine action in the treatment of patients with type 2 diabetes and dyslipidemia. Serum samples of 60 patients before and after treatment with either berberine or placebo were collected. Ultra-performance(More)
Metabolomics is a new branch of systems biology exerting its influence in many aspects. In order to appraise the effects of antibiotics on central carbon metabolism, a CE based method was set up. With this platform, we estimated the organic acid metabolite pools' fluctuation of Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa cultured under 11 different(More)
The strong polar quaternary ammoniums, acetylcholine (ACh), choline (Ch) and butyrobetaine (BB, (3-carboxypropyl)trimethylammonium), are believed playing important roles in liver metabolism. These metabolites are at low levels and are weakly retained on reversed-phase liquid chromatographic (RP-LC) columns. Several hydrophilic interaction liquid(More)
Some compounds of low abundance in biological samples play important roles in bioprocesses. However, the detection of these compounds at inherently trace concentrations with interference from a complex matrix is difficult. New materials for sample pretreatment are essential for the removal of interferences and for selective enrichment. In this study,(More)
A method based on stop-flow two-dimensional liquid chromatography coupled with electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (2D LC-ESI MS) was established and applied to analyze triterpenoid saponins from the main root of ginseng. Due to the special structure of triterpenoid saponins (they contain polar sugar side chains and nonpolar aglycones), hydrophilic(More)
Hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography (HILIC) has been widely used for separating polar compounds as a complement mode to reversed-phase liquid chromatography. The development of new stationary phases for HILIC is significant to improve the coverage of various polar and hydrophilic compounds. The present study described the preparation and(More)
Two simple, rapid and specific analytical methods for 13 catecholamines and their metabolites have been developed based on liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry in a multiple reaction monitoring mode. Tyrosine, dopamine, dihydroxyphenylalanine, epinephrine, norepinephrine, 3-methoxytyramine, normetanephrine, metanephrine and isoproterenol (internal(More)
Acute graft rejection is one of the most common and serious post complications in renal transplantation, noninvasive diagnosis of acute graft rejection is essential for reducing risk of surgery and timely treatment. In this study, a non-targeted metabonomics approach based on ultra performance liquid chromatography (UPLC) coupled with quadrupole(More)
DNA methylation is an important epigenetic modification that alters transcription in those genes containing CpG islands. In this report, a novel DNA methylation analysis method was developed employing bisulfite-single strand conformation polymorphism combined with capillary electrophoresis (bisulfite-SSCP-CE). During the bisulfite treatment of genomic DNA,(More)
