A KNIME pipeline was developed to perform pre-processing of GC-MS data in an automated way and applied to a Inflammatory bowel diseases case study
|Metabolic response to everolimus in patient-derived xenografts of triple negative breast cancer|
Leslie R. Euceda1, Deborah K. Hill1,2, Endre Stokke1, Elisabetta Marangoni3, Tone F. Bathen1, Siver A. Moestue1,2
Everolimus treatment metabolic effects on TNBC PDX models were investigated using MR spectroscopy. PLS-DA successfully discriminated treated from controls and PDX expressing INPP4B and not. LMM revealed significant differences in 4/17 metabolites and two metabolite ratios between treated and controls.
|PredRet: Prediction of Retention Time by Direct Mapping between Multiple Chromatographic Systems|
Jan Stanstrup, Steffen Neumann, Urška Vrhovšek
Retention time (RT) information is under-utilized in LC-MS based metabolomics and sharing of RTs between systems is not currently possible. PredRet is a new system that allows highly accurate mapping and prediction of RTs between LC systems.
|Profiling of metabolomic changes induced by testosterone esters in pig plasma and urine|
Kamil Stastny, Martin Faldyna, Milan Franek
In this study, metabolic fingerprinting to discriminate between pigs treated with 17ß-testosteron esters and control animals has been investigated. Multivariate statistical analysis showed significant metabolic differences between test and control groups on day 28 after aplication of the testosterone hormonal preparation.
|A Novel Bioluminescent HTS Method for Rapid NAD(P)/NAD(P)H Detection Poster|
Jolanta Vidugiriene, Donna Leippe, Mary Sobol, Wenhui Zhou, Gediminas Vidugiris, Troy Good, Laurent Bernad, Poncho Meisenheimer and James J. Cali
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotides (NAD+, NADH, NADP+ and NADPH) are fundamental co-factors of cellular energy metabolism. These dinucleotides are essential for macromolecule biosynthesis and the maintenance of the cellular redox potential. Our new rapid, easy-to-use assays for measuring dinucleotides are convenient tool for investigating their role in these processes.
|ROS-Glo™ H2O2 Assay: A Luminescent Assay for Detection of Reactive Oxygen Species Poster|
Gediminas Vidugiris, Sarah Duellman, John Shultz, Jolanta Vidugiriene, Hui Wang, Jean Osterman, Wenhui Zhou, Poncho Meisenheimer and James J. Cali
H2O2 is a reactive oxygen species (ROS) that is measured in cells as a marker of oxidative stress. It is also measured as a marker of enzyme activities that either consume or produce H2O2. It is desirable to screen chemical compounds for their capacity to alter H2O2 levels in cultured cells or for their effects on H2O2 levels in enzyme reactions.
|A Comparison of ITEX Dynamic Headspace–GC/MS to other Enrichment Techniques for Analysis of Flavoring Compounds|
Douglas Doster1; Roger Pearson1; Sean Eppel1; Ken Rice1; Tom Flug2; Brian Peat2; Guenter Boehm2
Enrichment techniques are commonly used for the analysis of flavoring compounds in different matrices with GC/MS. Analysis of flavoring compounds is done by purge & trap, SPME or headspace, depending on requirements for sensitivity. The In-Tube Ex¬traction (ITEX) Dynamic Headspace uses a micro trap filled with an adsorbent material to efficiently extract the compounds. Here we evaluate if the ITEX can be used to effectively analyze for these compounds and reduce the analyst’s time involved.
|Effective Comparison of Yeast Extracts Using High Resolution GC and GCxGC-HRTOFMS|
David E. Alonso and Joe Binkley
The Pegasus GC-HRT and GC-HRT 4D instruments are effective tools for the comprehensive analysis of yeast extracts.
• Enhanced chromatographic resolution of the HRT 4D system facilitated compound characterization by improving spectral similarity scores
• High quality data resulted in excellent spectral similarity scores when compared to large, well-established databases (NIST, Wiley)
• High resolution, accurate mass data was crucial for determination of fragment, molecular, and adduct
|When Single Dimension GC Separations Fail: Exploring Real World Applications for Comprehensive Two=Dimensional GC (GCxGC)|
Joe Binkley, Elizabeth Humston-Fulmer, David E. Alonso, and Lorne Fell
Examples will be highlighted for food/flavor/fragrance, metabolomic, and petrochemical application markets. The advantage in number of compounds detected and overall quality of their mass spectral library similarity scores, as compared to one-dimensional methods will be clearly demonstrated.
