Abstract: The major challenges in measuring plasma renin activity (PRA) stem from the complexity of biological matrix, as well as from the instability and low circulating concentration of angiotensin. In this study, an ultra-high performance liquid chromatography/tandem spectrometry (UPLC-MS/MS) based technique has been developed for the measurement of angiotensin using magnetically imprinted polymers for simultaneous enrichment of the precursor peptide angiotensin II (Ang II) and the upstream peptide precursor angiotensin I (Ang I). This technique involved surface graft imprinting in aqueous solutions using vinyl-modified nano-iron oxide as solid supports, the specificity determinant of Ang I and Ang II as the epitope, and methacrylic acid and N-t-butylacrylamide as functional monomers. The vinyl-modified nano-iron oxide acted as a magnetic separation media, and the molecularly imprinted shell provided analyte selectivity for the recognition of Ang I and Ang II. Selective enrichment of Ang I and Ang II was accomplished by the magnetically imprinted polymers, followed by a magnetic separation procedure and subsequent quantification by UPLC-MS/MS in the positive ionization mode with multiple reaction monitoring. Through the latter protocol, a low limit of detection could be realized, viz 0.07 ng/mL and 0.06 ng/mL for Ang I and II, respectively, which was thoroughly validated for accuracy and reproducibility through analyzing Ang I and Ang II in human plasma samples
