Precolumn derivatization of reducing carbohydrates with 4-(3Methyl5-oxo-2-pyrazolin-1-yl) benzoic acid. Study of reaction, high-performance liquid chromatographic separation and quantitative performance of method

Chromatographia (Impact Factor: 1.44). 01/2002; 56(3):153-160. DOI: 10.1007/BF02493204

ABSTRACT Summary A simple method for quantitative determination of carbohydrates by reversed-phase, high-performance liquid chromatography
after pre-column derivatization and UV detection has been developed. Reducing sugars are condensed with 4-(3-methyl-5-oxo-2-pyrazolin-l-yl)
benzoic acid (PMPA) to yield UV adducts absorbing at 271 nm, which are resolved under typical reversed-phase conditions. After
derivatization, excess PMPA is easily removed from the reaction mixture by precipitation with mineral acids at pH

    ABSTRACT: Comprehensive comparisons between three 1-aryl-3-methyl-5-pyrazolone (AMP) labeling reagents were carried out for the analysis of reductive monosaccharides using reversed phase high performance liquid chromatography diode array detection coupled to electrospray ionization mass spectrometry. AMP derivatives included 1-phenyl-3-methyl-5-pyrazolone (PMP), 1-(4-methoxyphenyl)-3-methyl-5-pyrazolone (PMPMP) and 1-(2-naphthyl)-3-methyl-5-pyrazolone (NMP). The separation of AMP-monosaccharides was found to be pH-dependent under reversed phase conditions and acceptable separations were obtained at pH<4.5. The elution orders of AMP-aldoses were rationalized by geometric factors involved in the presence of hydroxyl groups at C2 and C3 positions of the saccharide moiety. When PMP or PMPMP were used as labeling agents Glucose and galactose were completely separated, while arabinose and xylose were observed to co-elute. The use of NMP revealed that arabinose and xylose could be separated while glucose and galactose were co-eluted. MS-MS data of AMP-monosaccharides gave characteristic fragment ions resulting from cleavage between the C2–C3 bond (m/z 373 for PMP derivatives, m/z 433 for PMPMP derivatives, and m/z 473 for NMP derivatives). Bond breakage between C1–C2 (m/z 359 for PMP derivatives, m/z 419 for PMPMP derivatives, and m/z 459 for NMP derivatives) of the saccharide moiety was also found to be characteristic for AMP-saccharides. Application to the analysis of hydrolyzed rape pollen polysaccharides revealed the presence of four unexpected monosaccharides, namely ribose, erythrose, threose and glyceraldehyde.

    ABSTRACT: The new N-containing maltooligosaccharides GIB-638 were isolated and purified from the culture filtrate of Streptomyces fradiae PWH638 using the chemoenzymatic method. Its physicochemical properties, liquid chromatographic behaviour and spectroscopic data were similar to the reported compounds acarviostatin I03 with a molecular weight of 969 Da. Its structures were determined by spectroscopic methods, including ESI multistage mass spectrometry and two-dimensional NMR techniques. It was the first time isolated from S. fradiae PWH638 and exhibited effective inhibitory activity against human maltase-glucoamylase. The inhibition constants for GIB-638 against MGAMnt and MGAMct were 47.8, 24.03 μmol, respectively. It also could inhibit the maltose hydrolysis and glucose transfer in the in vitro-everted intestine model. The results from this study could provide the scientific evidence for it to use in the treatment of diabetes in medicine.
