Maternal and umbilical foetal blood at delivery were analysed for tryptophan metabolites by using fully automated high-performance liquid chromatography. The metabolites detected in 100 microliters of maternal plasma were kynurenine, serotonin, 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid, indolelactic acid, indoleacetic acid and indolepropionic acid. These metabolites were present in various amounts in the protein-bound form. Except for indolepropionic acid, the concentrations of tryptophan metabolites were… CONTINUE READING
