      Planar yeast estrogen screen with resorufin-?-D-galactopyranoside as substrate
      D. SCHICK, W. SCHWACK* (*Inst. of Food Chem., Univ. of Hohenheim, Garbenstraße 28, 70599 Stuttgart, Germany,

      J. Chromatogr. A 1497, 155-163 (2017). Development of a planar yeast estrogen screen for the determination of estrogen active compounds. Introduction of resorufin-?-D-galactopyranoside, providing the orange fluorescing resorufin after enzymatic cleavage, as the planar yeast estrogen screen (pYES) substrate to determine estrogen active compounds (EAC). For samples containing blue fluorescent components, this substance is better suited than the generally employed substrate 4-methylumbelliferyl-?-D-galactopyranoside, which delivered blue fluorescing 4-methylumbelliferone after enzymatic cleavage by the YES reporter ?-D-galactosidase. The mean LOD and LOQ was 3.5 and 6.5 pg/zone for 17?-estradiol (1) and 17?-ethinylestradiol (2), respectively; recoveries were close to 100% for (1) and (2) from spiked water samples in a concentration range of 2–20 ng/L.
