30 ppm) suggested the presence of a pure 25R epimer
(+)-catechin and (-)-epicatechin exhibited negligible affinities for both CB1 and CB2.
Stability of tea polyphenol (-)-epigallocatechin-3-gallate and formation of dimers and epimers
under common experimental conditions.

of marine sterols by [.
In contrast to capillary zone electrophoresis (8, 9), these methods are reportedly not sensitive enough to measure hexosamines in small samples of tissue, and most are not able to separate the glucose-galactose epimers
of UDP-hexosamines and UDP-hexoses (9).
We examined the importance of separating the C3 epimer
from 25-hydroxyvitamin [D.
Of particular interest is the C3 epimer
of 25(OH)D, 3-epi-25(OH)D, which can be present at relatively high concentrations in sera from infants, but can also be found in sera from adults, albeit at lower concentrations (1,2).
8) showed that commonly used LC-MS/MS procedures may overestimate the 25(OH)D concentration when the C-3 epimer
accounts for a substantial proportion of the circulating 25(OH)[D.
Schmidt's comments give the false impression that our recently published HPLC method (1) is unable to identify the presence of the C-3 epimer
apart from 25(OH)[D.
