    ABSTRACT: Quantitative determination of the hydrolysis products from proteins and DNA gives valuable information regarding the reactive metabolite that forms the protein and DNA adduct. Quantification of protein-benzo[a]pyrene (BP) adducts represents a more sensitive method than quantification of BP-DNA adducts. The aim of the present study was to identify two hydrolysis products from BP-derived protein adducts found in vitro and in vivo in a previous study. Male Wistar rats were injected i.p. with BP, and serum albumin was isolated and subjected to acid hydrolysis at 70 degrees C for 3 h. The hydrolysate was subjected to LC separation, and fractions of the two unknown compounds were collected. The molecular masses of the two unknown compounds were in accordance with being tetrols as judged by LC electrospray mass spectrometry. The fragmentation patterns were characteristic of tetrols with formation of the molecular ion and the loss of water molecules. In addition, the compounds were subjected to acid hydrolysis at 70 degrees C with 0.1 M HCl for 3 h. We observed that two of the known tetrols epimerized to the two unknown tetrols and vice versa. This is probably a characteristic epimerization involving not only position C(10)-OH but also another site like position C(7)-OH. The in vivo findings of the two unknown adducts are probably the result of the formation of BPDE III in the metabolism of BP. These two tetrols must then have the C(7)-OH and C(8)-OH groups in a cis position.

    ABSTRACT: Quantification of bradykinin peptides in limited amounts of rat muscle tissue dialysate has been performed using a packed capillary LC-ESI-TOF-MS method. The micro dialysate samples (450 microL) with added internal standard were loaded onto a 1 mm x 5 mm loading column packed with 5 microm Kromasil C18 particles by a carrier solution of 0.1% formic acid in ACN/water (5:95, v/v) at a flow rate of 250 microL/min for online preconcentration of the analytes. Back-flushed elution onto a 150 mm x 0.5 mm Zorbax C18 column packed with 5 microm particles was conducted using a linear solvent ACN/H2O gradient containing 0.1% formic acid. (Tyr8)-bradykinin was used as an internal standard and was added to the dialysis sample prior to injection. Baseline separation of bradykinin, arg-bradykinin and (tyr8)-bradykinin was achieved within 10 min. Positive ESI was performed in the m/z range of 200-1300. The method was validated in the range 0.2-1.0 ng/mL dialysate, yielding correlation coefficients of 0.995 and 0.990 for bradykinin and arg-bradykinin, respectively. The within-assay and between-assay precisions were between 4.3-9.6% and 6.2-10.6%, respectively. Both arg-bradykinin and bradykinin were detected in dialysate from rat muscle tissue, at concentrations of 0.1 and 0.4 ng/mL for bradykinin and arg-bradykinin, respectively, confirming the presence of arg-bradykinin in rat muscles.
