Determination of amino acid profile for argininosuccinic aciduria disorder using High-Performance Liquid Chromatography with fluorescence detection
Argininosuccinic aciduria is an autosomal, recessive amino acid disorder that is caused by a deficiency of the argininosuccinate lyase enzyme. Citrulline is the most significant marker to detect this disorder. We used the High-performance liquid chromatography with fluorescence detection with 450 nm emission and 330 nm excitation wavelengths, 15 mmol/L potassium dihydrogen phosphate and 5 mmol/L dipotassium hydrogen phosphate as Mobile Phase A, and 50 mL water, 250 mL acetonitrile, and 200 mL methanol as Mobile Phase B in gradient mode with flow rate of 1.2 mL/min. The citrulline concentration was 22 µmol/L in healthy infants and 220 µmol/L in infants suffering from the disorder.
