Capillary electrophoresis and its applications in the biological sciences: coenzyme A, polyamines and catecholamines


Guanshu Liu


"In the first part of this paper, we originally demonstrated the separation and quantitation of 12 different CoAs by using capillary electrophoresis with a UV detector at 254 nm...This technique described here is very sensitive, fast and simple. Its applications in real liver sample study are also presented in the first part. In the second part of this study, a method for simultaneous determination of polyamines and catecholamines in cell extracts by micelle electrokinetic capillary chromatography with UV detection at 254 nm was established...This technique can be easily applied to polyamine-related anticancer drug studies or clinical follow-ups after each dosage of these anticancer drugs, since these drugs not only have great inhibition on polyamine levels in blood, but also have a significant influence on catecholamine levels in blood."--Abstract, page iii.
