Currently this is accomplished by determination of AGT activity in liver biopsy specimens [6, 7] and measurement of glycolate and glycerate excretion.
A preliminary experiment showed that glycerate and glycolate were stable in acidified urine for up to 3 months.
Quantification of oxalate, glycolate, and glycerate was based on the detector response to a known amount of each compound and corrected for recovery of the internal calibrator.
Extraction of glycolate and glycerate was linear up to 1000 [micro]g/mg creatinine ([S.
Glycerate excretion in this healthy population was dependent on age (Fig.
The new extraction protocol was applied to specimens from 16 PH patients seen at the Mayo Clinic Division of Nephrology to assess the ability of improved glycolate/ glycerate extraction to discriminate between PH I and PH II.
Our results show that THF extraction of urine (as an adjunct to routine organic acid analysis) significantly improves sensitivity for polar compounds such as glycolate and glycerate and allows even normal excretion to be quantified.
