Description

Analysis Note Chiral 2-hydroxyglutarates (2-OHG) are important molecular signatures of both healthy and diseased biological cells, their specific biochemical pathways and inborn errors of metabolism. The chiral differentiation and quantification of D-2-OHG and L-2-OHG is key for characterizing neurometabolic disorders like the 2-hydroxyglutaric acidurias that cause neurological impairment early in life. In this application, an Astec® CHIROBIOTIC® R column run under polar ionic mobile phase conditions achieved a rapid separation of the D and L enantiomers of 2-OHG under conditions amenable for sensitive LC-MS/MS detection.
