Determination of arginine in dietary supplements
MetadataShow full item record
We present a rapid and sensitive flow injection method for the determination of arginine in dietary supplements. Detection was based on the chemiluminescence reaction of arginine with alkaline hypobromite. The response is proportional to analyte concentration over the calibration range, from 2.5 × 10-6 to 1 × 10-4 M, and a relative standard deviation of 1% was calculated (1 × 10-5 M, n = 12). Samples required only aqueous dilution prior to analysis, and over 100 samples could be analysed per hour, which is superior to that achieved with conventional colorimetric and enzymatic procedures. The results obtained with the flow injection methodology were concordant with those achieved using high-performance liquid chromatography employing pre-column derivatisation and fluorescence detection.

L-Arginine is essential for pancreatic β-cell functional integrity, metabolism and defense from inflammatory challengeKrause, M.; McClenaghan, N.; Flatt, P.; Hamem de Bittencourt, P.; Murphy, C.; Newsholme, Philip (2011)In this work, our aim was to determine whether L-arginine (a known insulinotropic amino acid) can promote a shift of β-cell intermediary metabolism favoring glutathione (GSH) and glutathione disulfide (GSSG) antioxidant ...
Neuroprotective peptides fused to arginine-rich cell penetrating peptides: Neuroprotective mechanism likely mediated by peptide endocytic propertiesMeloni, B.; Milani, D.; Edwards, A.; Anderton, R.; O'Hare Doig, R.; Fitzgerald, Melinda; Knuckey, N. (2015)Several recent studies have demonstrated that TAT and other arginine-rich cell penetrating peptides (CPPs) have intrinsic neuroprotective properties in their own right. Examples, we have demonstrated that in addition to ...
Elevated levels of branched-chain amino acids have little effect on pancreatic islet cells, but L-arginine impairs function through activation of the endoplasmic reticulum stress responseMullooly, N.; Vernon, W.; Smith, D.; Newsholme, Philip (2014)New Findings - What is the central question of this study?: Recent studies have demonstrated strong correlations between circulating branched-chain amino acid (AA) levels and insulin resistance, a predictor of susceptibility ...
