In Vitro Investigation of D- and Lenantiomer Synergistic Efects of Some Amino Acids

Abstract

Abstract D-amino acids can arise from endogenous microbial flora, from ingestion with the diet or from spontaneous racemization of L-amino acids during ageing. In this work, the behavior of methionine, homocysteine and cysteine enantiomers was investigated in human serum in vitro during 0-72 h at incubation temperature 37°C. The separation of enantiomers was realized in two dimensional on-line system (the connection of an achiral column Purospher RP-18 endcapped and a chiral column Chirobiotic TAG). This system allowed simultaneous monitoring all tested amino acids and their enantiomers. The possible effect D-enantiomer on the behavior of its L-enantiomer (the synergistic effect) was evaluated during incubation time. The first results have showed that no synergistic effect of D-enantiomer on its Lisomer has been observed in our experimental conditions in vitro.
