The gut microbiome is a pivotal player in toxicological responses. We investigated the effects of maternal exposure to 3 human health-relevant toxicants (BDE-47, tetrabromobisphenol [TBBPA], and bisphenol S [BPS]) on the composition and metabolite levels (bile acids [BAs] and short-chain

The enantiomeric compositions of 2-methylbutanol (1), 4-methylhexanol (2), 2-methylbutanoic acid (3), and 4-methylhexanoic acid (4) present in rhubarb (Rheum rhabarbarum L.) stalks were determined. Enantiodifferentiation was achieved via multidimensional gas chromatography using heptakis(2,3,6-tri-O-ethyl)-beta-cyclodextrin as a chiral stationary phase. For all

The glycine conjugates of isocaproic, 4-methylhexanoic, 7-hydroxyoctanoic and 8-hydroxyoctanoic acids have been identified in the urine of children with medium-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (MCAD) deficiency using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry of the trimethylsilyl derivatives. A quantitative study showed that the glycine conjugates
