An alternative approach for the measurement of trimethylamine oxide in body fluid samples of elasmobranchs
Abstract:The present study examined an alternative approach to the measurement of trimethylamine oxide (TMAO) in body fluids of an elasmobranch, the little skate Leucoraja erinacea. Using ion exchange chromatography, the values measured compared favourably with values from the same samples measured using a recognized and frequently published spectrophotometric technique.
