Abstract

This work reports the development and optimisation of a negative ion mode on-line LC-ESI-MS/MS method for the sensitive targeted analysis of the key glycolytic intermediates, sugars and sugar phosphates from plants, using a porous graphitic carbon (PGC) stationary phase and an MS compatible mobile phase. Using this newly developed method, separation and detection of a solution of standard compounds is achieved in less than 20 min. Target metabolite compounds were identified in plant extracts from their characteristic retention times, and product ion spectra. This on-line PGC-ESI-MS/MS method shows good linearity over the concentration range 0-100 LM, selectivity, short analysis time, and limits of detection of 0. 1 LM for disaccharides trehalose (Tre), sucrose (Suc), and maltose, and 1.5 lLM for hexose phosphates fructose-6-phosphate (Fru6P), glucose- I -phosphate (GIcIP), and glucose-6-phosphate (Glc6P), and phosphoenolpyruvate, (PEP). This paper describes details of our method and its application to the simultaneous quantitative analysis of soluble sugars and sugar phosphates from Arabidopsis thaliana tissues. We have demonstrated the utility of our method for the analysis of biological samples by applying it to the simultaneous quantitation of changes in soluble sugars and sugar phosphates in A. thaliana Columbia-0 (Col-0) and its starchless phosphoglucomutase (pgm) mutant over a 12-h light/I 2-h dark growth cycle.
