Increased concentrations of stable halogenated Tyr residues have been detected in proteins isolated from atherosclerotic plaques as well as in plasma and airway secretions of patients with asthma, ARDS, and cystic fibrosis, and halogenated Tyr residues are widely used as markers for damage mediated by hypohalous acids (HOCl and HOBr) in these diseases (3, 5, 107, 118-122).
Below a DA concentration of 50 nmol/L in the infused TYR solution, there was no relationship between the increment in arterial plasma DA and the infusate DA concentration (Fig.
If a positive answer were arrived at, our approach would be of value not only for the interpretation of TYR test results, but also for the interpretation of other tests of a similar nature that are designed to detect extremely rare cells.
Increased plasma Phe concentrations, such as we found in PKU patients (group B), by decreasing the availability of the precursors Tyr and Trp, which are also decreased in the same group of patients, might be the primary cause of their catecholamine and 5HT depletion (6, 7, 23).
After informed consent, Phe and Tyr were measured immediately in one aliquot ([Phe.
The candidate reference materials were enriched with two stock calibrator solutions: solution A, containing Met, Tyr, and Val, each at a concentration of 5 g/L in dilute HCI; and solution B, containing Phe and Leu, each at 5 g/L in deionized water.
Separation of Phe and Tyr was achieved by HPLC (Hewlett-Packard 1100 series) using a Hypersil C-18 4 mm x 100 mm column containing 3 [micro]m particles (Hewlett-Packard).
An initial study using HPLC and tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) demonstrated the ability to quantify Phe and Tyr simultaneously (4); it has also been suggested that calculation of the ratio of Phe to Tyr (Phe/Tyr) will allow detection of affected newborns under 24 h of age without increasing the rate of false positives (5).
