MetaboQuan-r for bile acids in human serum: a rapid, targeted UPLC-MS/MS method for metabolomic research studies

0

Introduction

Bile acids are an important class of biological molecules that are generated in the liver and play a central role in various biological functions, including cholesterol homeostasis. Quantitative analysis for research of bile acids using LC-MS is complicated by the presence of many isomeric compounds.Historically, this has meant that throughput has been compromised in order to separate these isomeric compounds. Here we demonstrate how these compounds can be separated, without compromising throughput, using Waters® CORTECS UPLC Technology combined with negative mode electrospray ionization mass spectrometry. This application note is also part of a MetaboQuan-R method package.
