Abstract :
A method for the detection of gibberellins produced by Fusarium verticilliodes is described using HPLCMS/MS (HPLC tandem MS). A Hypersil (5 (mu)m) octadecylsilane column with methanol/water as eluent in the ratio 3:1 at a flow rate of 0.5 ml/min was used. In the HPLCMS, GA3 (gibberellic acid; m/z 346.3) eluted at retention time tr=3.08 min, with the corresponding mass chromatogram having peaks at m/z 346.7 and 328.8 corresponding to the M+ and M+-H2O ions respectively. The ethyl acetate extract from the broth, subjected to HPLCMS analysis under similar conditions, showed a constituent with tr=2.13 min, the mass chromatogram of which exhibited peaks at m/z 348.9 and 331.9 corresponding to the MH+ and MH+-H2O ions respectively. Comparison of the MS and MS/MS results (direct infusion) of an authentic sample of GA3 and the ethyl acetate extract from the broth revealed the formation of reduced GA3 in the broth. The present study, utilizing HPLCMS/MS, describes an improved methodology for the unambiguous determination and estimation of gibberellins from fermentation broth.
