Abstract

n-Acetylglycine, n-propionylglycine, n-butyrylglycine, isobutyrylglycine, n-valerylglycine, isovalerylglycine, heptanoylglycine, phenylacetylglycine and isovalerylglucuronide were identified based on their liquid chromatographic-atmospheric pressure chemical ionization mass spectra (LC-APCI-MS). We were able to detect the presence of urinary isovalerylglycine in two cases of isovaleric acidemia using LC-APCI-MS. Membrane-filtered urine samples were injected into the LC-APCI-MS system in the negative-ion mode without any further pretreatment, and large amounts of isovalerylglycine were detected as the [M - H]- ion. The urinary excretion of isovalerylglycine appeared to increase after l-carnitine therapy. This analytical method is quick and easy and it may be a useful tool in understanding dysfunctional conditions in isovaleric acidemia.
