Bio-analytic silicon chips for the detection of developmentalneurotoxic effects of chemicals and drugs in the context of the European REACH program
S. Buehler , Helene Altrichter , P. J. Koester , C. Tautorat , Ralf Ehret ,Werner Baumann , Jan Gimsa

Bio-analytic silicon chips can be used to investigate stem cell differentiation into neurons and for the in vitro on-line monitoring of cellular reactions under well controlled experimental conditions. Chip systems allow for a parallel, label-free and non-invasive measurement of different parameters by CMOS silicon microsensors by the application of potential neurotoxic and developmental neurotoxic substances.

Biomarkers and Metabolomics: Practical Implication
Vladimir V. Tolstikov

Current presentation is dedicated to case studies and illustrates diversity of the projects. Cases representing different projects combine the same analytical platform we utilize for metabolomics study of blood plasma and urine. While pattern recognition presents certain challenges but rather ones that can be resolved, identification of low abundant unknown biomarkers is critical for the field and offers significant technical challenge in spite of considerable progress in modern analytical techn

PRIMe: Platform for RIKEN Metabolomics
Atsushi Fukushima, Miyako Kusano, Kenji Akiyama, Takeshi Obayashi, Takayuki Tohge, Masami Yokota Hirai, Shigehiko Kanaya, Masanori Arita, Yoko Shinbo, Kazuo Shinozaki, Tetsuya Sakurai and Kazuki Saito

We have developed a web-based database, "PRIMe (Platform for RIKEN Metabolomics)," which contains powerful tools for researchers to analyze gene co-expression data and mass spectral data. PRIMe has been developed with the main aim of facilitating integrated analysis for transcriptomics and metabolomics.

Revealing Host Metabolome Reprogramming by the Economically Important Fungal Plant Pathogens Botrytis cinerea and Magnaporthe grisea
Aileen R., Smith J., William Allwood, Amanda J. Lloyd, David I. Ellis, Royston Goodacre and Luis A.J. Mur

Metabolomic approaches including Fourier- transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy and Electrospray ionisation mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) were used to elucidate changes during susceptible and resistant interactions of Magnaporthe grisea with B. distachyon. Following data mining, discriminatory analytes (m/z) were shown to be phospholipids (PL) by ESIMS-MS. We are now moving to correlate transcriptional and metabolomic changes, concentrating on PL-based regulation.

Temporal Dynamics of Pathogenesis Related Metabolites and their Metabolic Pathways Following Inoculation of Potato Leaves with Phytophthora infestans
Y. Abu-Nada, A. C. Kushalappa, W. D. Marshall, K. Al-Mughrabi, and A. Murphy

The resistance in potato cultivars against late blight caused by Phytophthora infestans is classified into vertical and horizontal. Several metabolites associated with resistance have been detected: phytoalexins such as rishitin, phytuberin, lubimin, solavetivone etc. Metabolite profiling is a novel technology for the discrimination of quantitative resistance in plants against pathogen stress.

Towards Understanding of Ryegrass-Endophyte Symbiosis through Data Integration of Transcriptome and Metabolome
Mingshu Cao, Linda Johnson, Albert Koulman, Geoff Lane and Susanne Rasmussen

Combined with extensive bioinformatics analyses, our joint analysis of transcriptomics and metabolomics data has generated interesting findings which led to further laboratory verification, such as potential genes associated with alkaloid production.

Ethnopharmacological Evaluation of Radal (leaves of Lomatia hirsuta) through Metabolite Profiling and Isolation of 2-Methoxyjuglone.
Henrik Toft Simonsena, Louise Berthelsenb, Anne Adsersenb, Søren Brøgger Christensenb, Alfonso Guzmánb and Per Mølgaardb

To evaluate the efficacy of the traditionally used herbal remedy Radal a metabolite profile of the original plant material was established. The EtOAc extract of the leaves and found to be active against the pathogenic fungus Candida albicans (MIC = 8 µg/ml). Cinnamic acid (2) and vanillic acid (5) were identified as the major constituents in the tea by GC-MS along with other phenolic derivatives.

The Comparison of Lipid Extraction Methods for the Lipidomic Analysis of Human Blood Plasma
Ali Awwad, Catharine Ortori, Dave A. Barrett and Clare A. Daykin

Although metabolomics is and should remain an integrated approach by itself, its complexity requires analogous approaches focused on its components, such as lipidomics. Lipid profiling by NMR without sample extraction, should be seen as only the first stage in lipidomic analysis. Subsequent analysis should involve extraction of the lipids from the biofluid or tissue prior to further profiling using a multi-technique metabolomic approach involving both NMR and MS.
