Although the concentration of phosphatidylglycerol (PG) in amniotic fluid is generally considered indicative of fetal lung maturity, the thin layer chromatographic techniques currently used to measure this concentration have been criticized. We have investigated a highly sensitive method for determining amniotic fluid phosphatidylglycerol by using L-glycerol-3-phosphate (G-3-P).dihydroxyacetone phosphate enzymatic cycling reaction and relate this finding to the assessment of fetal lung maturity… CONTINUE READING
