Folate, MALDI-TOF MS, Graphite plate, Vitamin, Blood
Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) was used to observe folic acid and its derivatives such as tetrahydrofolate and 5-methyltetrahydrofolate in a vitamin tablet and in foods. Folic acid in a vitamin tablet was determined using angiotensin I as an internal reference. Tetrahydrofolic acid, 5-methyltetrahydrofolic acid, and an oxygenated folate were observed from a human blood sample using graphite plate. The results show that these mass spectrometric methods are useful for quickly obtaining a profile of folates.
