Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Aminograms of tubal and follicular fluids were obtained using fluids collected by aspiratory puncture from six cats. The amino acids were separated and quantified by high-performance liquid chromatography analysis. The serum of the cats was used as control. The three most prevalent amino acids quantified in cat tubal fluid were glycine, glutamic acid, and taurine. Their mean concentrations were 840 μmol/l (μm), 808 μm and 596 μm, respectively. The three most prevalent amino acids quantified in cat follicular fluid were alanine, glutamine, and taurine. Their mean concentrations were 359 μm, 351 μm, and 258 μm, respectively. This result is consistent with aminograms of tubal fluid previously determined in other mammals. As previously observed in other species and humans, glycine was quantitatively the most abundant and most prevalent free amino acid in cat tubal fluid. The total quantity of amino acids in tubal fluid was similar in cats and other species. However, in contrast with other species studied, hypotaurine was not detected in tubal and follicular fluids of female cats.
