Abstract [en]

One feature of complex lipids is that many subtypes of these molecules exist as a diverse mixture in a biological sample. Qualitative and quantitative analysis of these closely related molecules require sensitive and specific analytical methods to detect intact phospholipids (PL) and sphingomyelin (SM) species and to differentiate between them. Conventional analytical methods require laborious procedures including separation by column, argentation thin-layer chromatography or liquid chromatography (LC) after pre- or post-column derivatization. In the present work, a method based on reversed phase capillary LC coupled on-line to electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (LC/ESI/MS) has been developed to gather tools for lipidomic studies, i.e. the profiling of complex mixtures of lipids in small amounts of various cells and tissues. The LC/MS system used consisted of an LC pump in an isocratic elution, a reversed phase capillary column and a single quadrupole mass spectrometer operated in the positive ion mode. A successful separation of phosphatidylcholine (PC) and SM molecular species was obtained with a minimum detectable quantity (MDQ) in the low fmol range injected on column. The method was applied to human brain extracts. Furthermore, the extraction efficiencies of the traditional Folch method and pressurized fluid extraction (PFE) were compared using the human brain. It was found that the intensity of the PC and SM molecular species extracted by PFE is two times that of Folch.
