Prolonged fasting (>24 h), on the other hand, will cause an increase of acyl carnitine (10, 17, 22).
Differentiation of isomeric acyl carnitines using tandem mass spectrometry.
Seven additional cases had acyl carnitine analyses that suggested the possibility of a fatty acid defect (see Table 1).
Electrospray tandem mass spectrometry for analysis of acyl carnitines in dried postmortem blood specimens collected at autopsy from infants with unexplained cause of death.
These intermediates are converted back to acyl-CoA on the inner mitochondrial membrane in reactions driven by acyl carnitine
translocase and carnitine acyl-transferase II (EC 2.
7 ND (a) A longer retention time for the acyl carnitines
on the reverse-phase column correlates with a longer acyl chain length.
Since that time, a high throughput LC/MSMS screening procedure suitable for use in state newborn screening laboratories has been developed and a method describing the combined extraction of the C26:0 lyso PC with that of the acyl carnitines
has been published.
