Reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatographic investigation of mucosal nucleosides and bases and urinary modified nucleosides of gastrointestinal cancer patients.

Reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) was used to determine the levels of nucleosides, bases and their metabolites in perchloric acid extracts of gastrointestinal mucosa. By comparing the levels of these compounds in the normal portion with the neoplastic portion of mucosa resected from malignant cancer patients, it was found that there was significant elevation of the uracil level in the neoplastic mucosa of all eight patients with colorectal cancer (2.7-fold in normal mucosa), but only in the neoplastic mucosa of one out of four patients with gastric cancer. The levels of hypoxanthine and uridine in the colorectal cancer mucosa samples and the inosine in gastric cancer samples were also significantly higher than those in normal mucosa. The urinary modified nucleosides were prefractionated with a boronate affinity gel column, and their levels were determined by the same HPLC method. There was no significant difference in the concentrations of pseudouridine, 1-methylguanosine N2-methylguanosine and N2,N2-dimethylguanosine between urine samples taken before and after surgery from eight patients with malignant colorectal cancer. Contrary to other reports, no significant differences in modified nucleoside levels were observed between urine samples from patients with colorectal cancer and those from normal subjects.[1]
