Measurement of platelet-activating factor acetylhydrolase activity by quantitative high-performance liquid chromatography determination of coumarin-derivatized 1-O-alkyl-2-sn-lysoglyceryl-3-phosphorylcholine.

Abstract

A sensitive method for determining platelet-activating factor acetylhydrolase (PAF-AH) activity in human serum, using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with a fluorimetric detection, is described. The method is based on the derivatization with 7-diethylaminocoumarin-3-carbonylazide of the 2-lyso-PAF, by-product of PAF-AH activity, extracted from… (More)
