Investigation of field desorption mass spectral behaviour of prostaglandins for their determination in biological fluids


, : Investigation of field desorption mass spectral behaviour of prostaglandins for their determination in biological fluids. Biomedical & Environmental Mass Spectrometry 16(1-12): 427-430

Field desorption (FD) mass spectrometry was applied to the determination of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) in urine. Studies on synthetic compounds showed that methyl esters are stable under FD mass spectrometric conditions. The ester of PGE2 gives rise to protonated molecular ions and fragments due to the elimination of water and the side chains C8H14O and C8H12O2. This behaviour enabled its determination in the nanogram per millilitre range.

A national campaign of well testing through 2003 enabled households in rural Bangladesh to switch, at least for drinking, from high-arsenic wells to neighboring lower-arsenic wells. We study the well-switching dynamics over time by re-interviewing...

Somatic cell cytokinesis was shown to involve the insertion of sphingolipids (SLs) to midbodies prior to abscission. Spermatogenic midbodies transform into stable intercellular bridges (ICBs) connecting clonal daughter cells in a syncytium. This p...
