Research overview:
Ultraviolet radiation causes sunburn and skin cancers. In order to protect from the radiation, urocanic acid exits as an ultraviolet-absorbing material in the stratum corneum of skin. Because the amount of urocanic acid in the stratum corneum are not known well for its low analytical sensitivity, we examine quantitative analysis of dabsylated cis and trans urocanic acid and histidine by high performance liquid chromatography using a revers phase column.
