Nucleotide preparation from cells and determination of nucleotides by ion-pair high-performance liquid chromatography.

Procedures for the analysis of cellular purine and pyrimidine nucleotides are described. The commonly used perchloric acid and especially the trichloroacetic acid methods for nucleotide extraction interfere with ion-pair high-performance liquid chromatography, but we have developed such a system for the separation and determination of major cellular nucleotides in biological matrices, including tri-, di-, monophosphates, cAMP, cGMP, NAD, NADP, UDP-glucose and UDP-galactose. Compared with perchloric acid extraction, no degradation of the nucleotide standards used was observed with respect to triphosphates and other relatively unstable nucleotides. Cellular nucleotides were extracted by lysing cells in a hypotonic buffer containing an ion-pair reagent (tetrabutylammonium hydrogen-sulphate) to decrease enzymic degradation of nucleotides in combination with ultrafiltration of the cell lysate to remove compounds of higher molecular mass, for example enzymes. This method is a simple and reproducible procedure for investigating nucleotide pools in cells.[1]
