Abstract A specific, sensitive, and rapid method to measure pseudouridine in human blood serum is described. The method is based on the following steps: (i) deproteinization of serum samples by filtration on membrane cones or by acetonitrile; (ii) purification of nucleosides and concentration of the sample by affinity chromatography on phenylboronate gel followed by lyophilization; and (iii) separation of nucleosides and their quantitation by reverse-phase high-performance liquid chromatography. The pseudouridine mean value in 30 normal subjects was 2.52 +/- 0.28 nmol/ml. The procedure also allows the identification of inosine, uridine, guanosine, and adenosine. Nevertheless, the presence in human blood serum of enzymatic activities which convert adenosine to inosine and cytidine to uridine prevents the precise quantitation of these nucleosides. All the compounds were identified by comparing their retention times and absorbance ratios (A280/A254) with those of pure compounds, as well as by cochromatography.
