Measurements of biochemical parameters: Ten mL of fasting blood was obtained within 24 hours of the admission and analyzed for serum folate, homocysteine, glucose, total cholesterol, low density lipoprotein (LDL)-cholesterol, high density lipoprotein (HDL)-cholesterol, triglycerides and ferritin using commercially available kit methods (Roche Diagnostics, USA), while serum vitamin B12 was assayed using a radioassay.12 The minimum limits of detection for serum/plasma folate, homocysteine, glucose, total cholesterol, LDL- cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol, triglycerides, ferritin and vitamin B12 were 0.64 ng/mL, 4 mmol/L, 2 mg/ dL, 9.7 mg/dL, 3.9 mg/dL, 3.0 mg/dL, 8.9 mg/dL, 0.5 ng/mL and 50 pg/mL, respectively.

Direct detection of UDP with a fluorescence polarization (FP) readout provides a safe, HTS-compatible alternative to cumbersome radioassay methods and is more sensitive and less subject to interference than coupled assay methods, where the UDP is converted to another product.
