L-Leucine-β-naphthylamide was used as the substrate and its hydrolytic product, β-naphthylamine, was monitored by fluorescence at 280nm excitation and 400nm emission wavelengths. Under optimized conditions, the components in the incubation mixture were baseline separated and eluted out of a large-pore (300Å) reversed-phase C4 column (RPC4) within 15min with a non-linear gradient elution of methanol (0.05% (v/v) trifluoroacetic acid additive). The detection limit of the hydrolytic product reached 0.35pmol at three time signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio with 5μl sample injection. The method showed a wide dynamic range for quantitation of both the hydrolytic product (10ng/ml to 80μg/ml) and LAP (0.1-46.0μg/ml) with correlation coefficient larger than 0.998 and reproducibility <3 and 10% R.S.D. (n=3), respectively. A fairly broad range of incubation time could be selected within 1h. The LAP activities and concentrations in rabbit serum, tears, and mouse lens homogenates were determined to be 41.8 (0.3mg/ml), 2.8 (40.0μg/ml), and 1.6pmol/(μlmin) (17.5μg/ml), respectively, with reproducibility of 2-9% R.S.D. (n=3) and intra- and inter-day variation for the retention time of the hydrolytic product being <1% R.S.D. (n=3). The results indicate that the present method is rapid and sensitive as compared to the conventional one. © 2003 Elsevier B.V.
