Abstract

An assay to quantify bradykinin in rat plasma has been developed and validated, using liquid chromatography coupled to tandem mass spectrometry (LC–MS/MS). Sar-d-Phe8-des-Arg9-bradykinin was used as internal standard. Aprotinin was added to rat plasma to inhibit the activity of proteinases. Recoveries for solid-phase extraction (SPE) on Strata X reversed phase were greater than 80%. Multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) on a triple quadrupole mass spectrometer equipped with an electrospray source (ESI), operating in the positive ion-mode, was used for detection. The assay was validated and stability was explored. Bradykinin (10–500 ng/mL) was quantified with accuracy values (% RE) below 10% and intraand inter-day precisions (% RSD) below 12 and 16%, respectively, for all concentrations. The method was successfully applied to several plasma samples from low levels kallikrein rats (LKRs) compared with normal kallikrein rats (NKRs).
