Abstract An assay for in vivo, continuous and automatic monitoring of extracellular malondialdehyde concentrations in anesthetized rat brain cortex was developed. This method involved the use of microdialysis perfusion, on-line derivatization and on-line high-performance liquid chromatographic analysis. Microdialysate from an implanted microdialysis probe was on-line reacted with thiobarbituric acid at 80°C for 10 min prior to on-line collection and automatic injection into a HPLC system equipped with a fluorescence detector. This method gave a linear response between the concentrations of the malondialdehyde in the microdialysates and the TEP solution where the microdialysis probe was placed. This method was used to observe the increased extracellular malondialdehyde production following elevated extracellular glutamate levels, which were achieved by perfusion of l -trans-pyrrolidine-2,4-dicarboxylate, a competitive inhibitor of glutamate uptake transporter.

The relationship between iron-dependent fetal mouse spinal cord neuron injury and the generation of endogenous lipid hydroperoxides (LOOHs) has been investigated. Cultured spinal cord neurons were incubated with ferrous iron (3-200 μM). Cell viability was measured in terms of the uptake of a-[methyl-3H]aminoisobutyric acid ([ 3 H]AIB). Both endogenously and iron-generated LOOH, i.e., free fatty acid hydroperoxide (FFAOOH), phosphatidylethanolamine hydroperoxide (PEOOH), and phosphatidylcholine h...

Abstract Oxidative stress is believed to be involved in the damaging mechanism of excitotoxic insult. Thus, we investigated the effect of elevated extracellular glutamate levels on malondialdehyde production, a common index of lipid peroxidation, in anesthetized rat brain cortex. Elevation of extracellular glutamate levels was achieved either by exogenously perfusing glutamate solutions, or by perfusing l -trans-pyrrolidine-2,4-dicarboxylate (PDC), a competitive inhibitor of glutamate uptake tra...

This paper reports a highly sensitive, specific, and reproducible method for the analysis of malondialdehyde (MDA) from microdialysates. The microdialysates were reacted with 2-thiobarbituric acid, and the TBA adducts were separated by HPLC and detected using a fluorescence detector. Butylated hydroxytoluene was used as an antioxidant to minimize formation of artifacts. The time course of MDA production following impact injury to the rat spinal cord was obtained using this improved method. MDA c...

The extracellular concentrations of the lipid peroxidation product malonaldehyde (MDA) and the antioxidants ascorbic and uric acid were measured in rat brain in vivo using microdialysis coupled to HPLC with ultra violet spectrophotometry. Treatment with kainic acid at pH 4.1 (50 nmol) caused a significant increase in the sampled concentration of MDA but no significant changes in the antioxidants. Treatment with the same dose of kainic acid at pH 7.2 did not cause a significant increase in MDA, a...

Oxidizability of lipids in homogeneous solution varies linearly with the extent of their unsaturation. In vitro cellular, as well as in vivo, studies of oxidizability have generally relied upon chemical indicators of peroxidation such as thiobarbituric acid-reactive substances. To examine the oxidizability of lipids in cells, we have measured oxygen uptake and, using electron paramagnetic resonance spin trapping with a-( l-oxo-4-pyridyl)-N-tert-butylnitrone (POBN), the real time generation of li...

A comparative evaluation was made of the conventional spectrophotometric procedure and three published high performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) procedures for the determination of malondialdehyde (MDA) as the thiobarbituric acid (TBA) derivative when applied to liver, fish meal, serum, and urine. Except for urine, spectrophotometric analysis overestimated MDA content. Purification of the TBA-MDA complex obtained from liver and fish meal on reverse phase cartridges was found to entail a los...

Forebrain ischemia was produced in the rat by bilateral occlusion of the common carotid arteries combined with hemorrhagic hypotension (30 mmHg). The whole cerebral cortex was homogenized in the presence of the spin trap agentN-tert-butyl-α-phenyl-nitrone, followed by a Folch extract. Spin-adducts were detected using electron spin resonance spectroscopy. The lipid peroxidation was estimated from both the amount of thiobarbituric acid reactive substance and the formation of conjugated diene. Afte...

Abstract A high-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method was used to determine the level of malonaldehyde (MA) in materials containing unsaturated fatty acids and rat liver microsomes peroxidized in vitro . The detection limit was 8.3 pmol for fatty acid samples and 25 pmol for microsomal samples. The method was specific to MA and the relative standard deviation was 4.34–5.14%. The recovery of MA was about 100%. In general, the MA values in oxidized materials obtained by the proposed HPL...

Abstract 4-Hydroxynonenal and 4-hydroxyhexenal are cytotoxic aldehydic products of lipid peroxidation with high biological activity. Peroxidation of n −6 fatty acids produces 4-hydroxynonenal, but the origin of 4-hydroxyhexenal has been uncertain. We now present evidence that 4-hydroxyhexenal is generated by oxidation of docosahexaenoic acid, the most abundant n -3 fatty acid in tissues.

Abstract Despite recent advances in the treatment of solid tumors, there are few effective treatments for malignant gliomas due to the infiltrative nature, and the protective shield of blood–brain barrier or blood–tumor barriers that restrict the passage of chemotherapy drugs into the brain. Imaging techniques, such as PET and MRI, have allowed the assessment of tumor function in vivo, but they are indirect measures of activity and do not easily allow continuous repeated evaluations. Because the...

Abstract Since the introduction of microdialysis in 1974, the semi-invasive analytical method has grown exponentially. Microdialysis is one of the most potential analysis technologies of pharmacological drug delivery to the brain. In recent decades, analysis of chemicals targeting the brain has led to many improvements. It seems likely that fluorescence imaging was limited to ex vivo and in vitro applications with the exception of several intravital microscopy and photographic imaging approaches...

A microdialysis sampling (MDS) on-line SPE (MDS/SPE) has been applied to redeem the detection after dilution to decrease matrix interference in the analysis of ketamine (K) and its two main metabolites, norketamine (NK) and dehydronorketamine (DHNK) in urine by HPLC. After being filtrated, diluted and adjusting the pH, K and its metabolites in the diluted sample solution were collected through MDS and then trapped on an on-line SPE for HPLC analysis. The optimal conditions for MDS/SPE were inves...

Microdialysis (MD) is a sampling technique that can be employed to monitor biological events both in vivo and in vitro. When it is coupled to an analytical system, microdialysis can provide near real-time information on the time-dependent concentration changes of analytes in the extracellular space or other aqueous environments. Online systems for the analysis of microdialysis samples enable fast, selective and sensitive analysis while preserving the temporal information. Analytical methods empl...

In vivo sampling of interstitial fluid using microdialysis (MD) fibers has become a standard and accepted procedure. The resulting small volume samples, often with low concentrations of the analyte of interest, present a particular challenge to analytical methods. Rapid developments of analytical techniques with high sensitivity accelerate their combination with MD. On-line MD-based analytical systems are receiving increasing attention because they can provide near real-time data prior to the of...

An on-line analytical system for the continuous monitoring of malondialdehyde (MDA) was developed. This method involves the use of microdialysis perfusion, on-line derivatization and on-line HPLC analysis. This method gave a linear response for MDA concentrations and HPLC peak areas in the range from 0.051 μM to 2.43 μM. The intra-day (RSD = 1.6 - 10.5%) and inter-day (RSD = 1.1 - 9.3%) precisions were acceptable. The average in vitro probe recovery of MDA standard was 18.4 ± 1.0%. The detection...

In this chapter, a wide variety of analytical techniques that can be used in combination with microdialysis sampling will be described. Most of these methods are also commonly used for other biological samples, such as blood, urine, and tissues. However, when using microdialysis, the analysis and sampling must be viewed as a unified experiment where a parameter directly affecting one aspect will indirectly affect all the other components of the experiment. It is therefore almost never appropriat...
