Quantification of riboflavin, flavin mononucleotide, and flavin adenine dinucleotide in human plasma by capillary electrophoresis and laser-induced fluorescence detection.
(16) showed that the sum of erythrocyte flavin mononucleotide and FAD is correlated with the EGRAC and might be a useful indicator of riboflavin status in population studies.
In contrast, neither plasma flavin mononucleotide nor plasma flavin adenine dinucleotide showed a relationship with dietary riboflavin, neither were they related to EGRAC or plasma riboflavin.
For the determination of vitamin [B.sub.2] status, plasma concentrations of riboflavin and flavin nucleotides (FNs; i.e., the combined concentration of the coenzymes FAD and flavin mononucleotide) were determined by a modified HPLC method; CVs were <6% and <4%, respectively (15).
