Purpose: The implementation of targeted therapies for acute myeloid leukemia (AML) has been challenging. Fat mass and obesity associated protein (FTO), an mRNA N6-methyladenosine (m6A) demethylase, functions as an oncogene that promotes leukemic oncogene-mediated cell transformation and leukemogenesis. Here, we

Quantification of 2-ketoglutaric acid in plasma and cerebrospinal fluid as its O-trimethylsilyl++-quinoxalinol derivative by gas chromatography chemical ionization mass spectrometry is described with benzoylformic acid as internal standard. This technique, with ammonia as reactant gas, only detects the protonated molecular
