ABSTRACT

A simple and fast ion pair reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatographic method has been developed for the simultaneous determination of ATP, ADP, AMP, GTP, GDP, IMP, NADP+, NADPH+, NAD+, NADH, ADP-ribose, inosine, adenosine, hypoxanthine, and xanthine. This method allows us to have a complete picture of the most important nucleotides present in fresh human erythrocytes. Furthermore it is particularly useful in the study of the erythrocyte adenine nucleotide catabolism allowing the detection of degradation products such as IMP, inosine, adenosine, hypoxanthine, and xanthine. The separation of the compounds under investigation is achieved in less than 15 min using a reversed-phase 3-micron Supelcosil LC-18 column and adding tetrabutylammonium, as ion-pair agent, to the buffers. The short time of analysis, the high reproducibility of the system, and the accurate evaluation of the compounds of interest make this method particularly suitable for routine analysis. Finally it is possible to use this assay as an alternative method of measuring activities of enzymes which catalyze reactions involving some of these compounds, as in the case of Na+-K+ ATPase, AMP deaminase, and adenosine deaminase.
