Abstract

Lysophosphatidic acids and sphingosine-1-phosphate are bioactive lipids that regulate diverse cellular and physiological processes through actions that are largely mediated by cell surface receptors. The roles played by these lipids in multiple disease processes make the enzymes and receptors involved in their synthesis, inactivation, and signaling attractive targets for pharmacological therapies. In this chapter we describe methods for sensitive accurate quantitation of LPA and S1P levels in biological fluids using liquid chromatography-coupled electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry.
