In the present work, for the first time, a method for the quantification of the alimentary opioid peptide Gluten Exorphin A5 (GE-A5; Gly-Tyr-Tyr-Pro-Thr) in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) was developed. Aliquots (5 microL) of CSF were injected into a liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) instrument equipped with a reversed-phase C18 column at a flow-rate of 0.4 mL/min. The mobile phase consisted of Eluent A water with 0.6% acetic acid as an ion-pairing reagent and Eluent B acetonitrile/methanol (75:25, v/v). The LC-MS system was programmed to divert column flow to waste for 4 min after injection, after which time flow was directed into the mass spectrometer that operated in positive ion mode. No significant interfering peaks were detected at the retention times of GE-A5 in CSF blanks. The lower limit of detection and the lower limit of quantitation values for GE-A5 in CSF were established at 0.60 and 1.50 ng/mL, respectively. The intra- and inter-day precision values were <5% relative standard deviation. The intra- and inter-day accuracy were 99.6-102.8% and 100.0-101.9%, respectively. The reported assay employs extremely small volumes of CSF, thus allowing the analysis of GE-A5 from both small and large animal models.
