A sensitive high-performance liquid chromatographic procedure with fluorometric detection for the analysis of decarboxylated S-adenosylmethionine and analogs in urine samples.

A highly sensitive HPLC method for the determination of decarboxylated S-adenosylmethionine (dc-SAM) by fluorometric detection was developed. The reaction of dc-SAM and its analogs with chloroacetaldehyde leads to the corresponding 1,N6-etheno derivatives. These highly fluorescent derivatives were fully characterized through their proton nuclear magnetic resonance spectra and/or mass spectra. This derivatization procedure has been applied to the analysis of dc-SAM in rat and human urine. After a simple cation exchange column prepurification, the urine extracts were derivatized with chloroacetaldehyde and analyzed by reversed-phase HPLC with fluorometric detection. The method allowed the determination of subpicomole amounts of dc-SAM and was shown to be highly reproducible with the use of decarboxylated S-adenosylethionine as internal standard. The application of the method to the analysis of urine of rats treated with MDL 72175, a potent ornithine decarboxylase inhibitor, showed that the dc-SAM levels increased in a dose-related fashion.[1]
