A simple and reliable method of detecting variant transthyretins by multidimensional liquid chromatography coupled to electrospray ionization mass spectrometry.

Transthyretin (TTR) variants cause amyloidosis. A method, originally reported by us, of detecting the variants by high performance liquid chromatography/electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESIMS) using materials precipitated with anti-TTR antiserum, has been successfully applied by several institutions. The method is simple and reliable, but some… CONTINUE READING
