The lower limit of quantification (LLOQ) was 1 ng mL~(-1) and the linear range was 1-1,000 ng mL~(-1). The analyte was eluted on a Zorbax SB-Aq column (2.1×100 mm, 3.5 μm) with the mobile phase composed of methanol and water (70:30, v/v, aqueous phase contained 10 mM ammonium formate and 0.3 % formic acid) using isocratic elution, and monitored by positive electrospray ionization in multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) mode. The flow rate was 0.25 mL min~(-1). The injection volume was 5 μL and total run time was 4 min. The relative standard deviation (RSD) of intraday and interday variation was 2.49-7.81 and 3.01- 7.67 %, respectively. All analytes were stable after 4 h at room temperature and 6 h in autosampler. The extraction recoveries of Meserine in brain homogenate were over 90 %. The main brain pharmacokinetic parameters obtained after intranasal administration were T_(max)=0.05 h, C_(max)=462.0±39.7 ng g~(-1), T_(1/2)=0.4 h, and AUC_((0-∞)_=283.1±9.1 ng h g~(-1). Moreover, Meserine was distributed rapidly and widely into brain, heart, liver, spleen, lung, and kidney tissue. The method is validated and could be applied to the pharmacokinetic and tissue distribution study of Meserine in mice. 收起<<
