Studies of drug-protein interactions using high-performance affinity chromatography

Zhao Li, University of Nebraska - Lincoln


High-performance affinity chromatography (HPAC) is a type of liquid chromatography in which solutes are separated based on their binding to a stationary phase that is a biologically-related agent. Because of the strong and selective nature of many biological interactions, this method has already become a powerful technique for the purification and analysis of solutes that are complementary to the immobilized binding agent. Human serum albumin (HSA), the most abundant protein in the blood with concentrations of 35-50 mg/mL in serum, has interactions with many drugs, which can affect the absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion of such agents. This dissertation describes the use of HPAC to examine the binding of various drugs to HSA and various forms of this protein. (Abstract shortened by ProQuest.)
