A Study of Plasma Free Amino Acid Levels. Normal Values for Children and Adults By Marvin D. Armstrong and Uwe Stave Mean values for the fasting plasma levels of the individual amino acids are given for children (aged yr) and by: BACKGROUND Plasma amino acids are usually analyzed by ion-exchange chromatography (IEC), a reproducible but time consuming method. Here, we test whether plasma amino acids can be analyzed using reverse-phase high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). METHODS Filtered plasma, with S-carboxymethyl-l-cysteine as the internal standard, was derivatized and analyzed by an Agilent . Abstract The present study reports the simultaneous analysis of 26 physiological amino acids in plasma along with total cysteine and homocysteine by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) employing 6-aminoquinolyl- N -hydroxysuccinimidyl carbamate (AQC) as precolumn derivatizing by: Plasma amino acids: screening, quantitation, and interpretation”2 Charles R. Scriver, Carol L. Clow and Peter Lamin Information about the steady-state concen-tration of amino acids in human plasma has accumulated steadily in recent years, partly as the result of new methodology, but also because of the relevance of this information.
Indeed, amino acids are necessary for protein synthesis and have various functions in the body ; the study of interaction of the polar amino acid residues can help us to understand the. One of the traditional examples of using plasma amino acid profiles for diagnostic markers is Fisher’s ratio, which is a ratio of branched-chain amino acids to aromatic amino acids and is used as a diagnostic marker for liver fibrosis (Soeters and Fischer ). 5 sulphur-containing amino acids COO H H C CH 2 NH 2 S R C H O C 2 NH 2 S R S-alk(en)yl- L-cysteines S-alk(en)yl- L-cysteine sulfoxides basic amino acids and related compounds COOH H C NH 2 [CH 2]n CH 2 NH 2 L-ornithine (n = 2) [CH 2]n COOH H C NH 2 O C NH L-citrulline (n = 2, carbamoylderivative of ornithine) CH. An amino acid composition on 1 μg of electroblotted protein can be determined with 85% average accuracy, 5% average precision, and 88% average recovery. Lower levels ( jug) can be determined with approximately 79% accuracy, 11% precision, and 32% average recovery. View chapter Purchase book.
The aims of this study were to investigate free amino acid (AA) concentrations in plasma, red blood cells (RBC), polymorphonuclear granulocytes (PMN), and muscle, sampled at the same time, in normal and uraemic children.

This is an extremely difficult task as there are some 40 or 50 amino acids or amino acid conjugates in biological fluids, I with more than a WOO-fold range of concentrations.
