NMR and Metabolomics The Potential outcomes and The Restrictions

Presentation Transcript

  1. NMR & MetabolomicsThe Possibilities & The Limitations David Wishart Depts. Comp. Sci and Bio. Sci. University of Alberta & NINT david.wishart@ualberta.ca

  2. The (Human) Pyramid of Life Metabolomics Proteomics Genomics 1400 Chemicals 3000 Enzymes 30,000 Genes

  3. The (Bacterial) Pyramid of Life Metabolomics Proteomics Genomics 761 Chemicals 1152 Enzymes 4269 Genes

  4. Why Measure Metabolites? Metabolites are the Canaries of the Genome

  5. Metabonomics & Metabolomics • Metabonomics:The quantitative measurement of the time-related “total” metabolic response of vertebrates to pathophysiological (nutritional, xenobiotic or toxic) stimuli • Metabolomics:The quantitative measurement of invertebrate metabolic profiles to characterize their phenotype or phenotypic response to genetic or nutritional perturbations MetaboXomics

  6. Metabolomics Allows One to.. • Generate metabolic “signatures” • Monitor/measure metabolite flux • Monitor enzyme/pathway kinetics • Assess/identify phenotypes • Monitor gene/environment interactions • Track effects from toxins/perturbants • Monitor consequences from gene KOs • Identify functions of unknown genes

  7. Traditional Metabolite Analysis HPLC, GC, CE, MS

  8. Problems with Traditional Methods • Requires separation followed by identification (coupled methodology) • Requires optimization of separation conditions each time • Often requires multiple separations • Slow (up to 72 hours per sample) • Manually intensive (constant supervision, high skill, tedious)

  9. New Approaches

  10. Advantages • Measure multiple (10’s to 100’s) of metabolites at once – no separation!! • Allows metabolic profiles or “fingerprints” to be generated • Mostly automated, relatively little sample preparation or derivitization • Can be quantitative (esp. NMR) • Analysis & results in < 60 s

  11. Why NMR? Mixture separation by HPLC (followed by ID via Mass Spec) Mixture separation by NMR (simultaneous separation & ID) Chemical Shift Chromatography

  12. Why NMR? • 1H NMR • Rapid metabolite identification and quantification • Monitoring flux/kinetics in real time • 13C NMR • Metabolite sources/sinks, chemistry • 31P NMR • ATP/ADP ratios, energy balance, cAMP

  16. Is There A Better Way? • Why not try to identify the individual peaks in an NMR spectrum automatically? • Use software to deconvolute individual spectral signatures using a database of known compounds • Use relative peak intensity to quantify • Gives identification and quantitation • Possibility of chemical shift microscopy

  20. Data Analysis (Principles) Glucose and Fructose Fit Extract Spectrum Fructose + Glucose Glucose Fit

  21. Data Analysis • Fitting 5-10 rounded peaks is trivial, fitting 1000+ sharp peaks is not, i.e. dense matrix problem with very high probability of cumulative rounding errors and singularities(LLSOL - Stanford) • Peak positions & shapes dependent on salt, pH, temperature, ligands, ligand/ion interactions, shimming, signal-to-noise digital resolution, phasing, field strength, etc. etc. • Requires special databases - key innovation • Requires “intelligent” data preprocessing - (ditto) • Partnered with Chenomx/Varian  Eclipse

  22. Fitting NMR Spectra with Eclipse

  24. Why Not Apply It to Bacterial ID?

  25. Metabolomics & E. coli • 25-50 mL shake flasks or large 0.5L flask • Remove aliquots at regular intervals • Analyze cells or media or both? • Cells • Lysis protocol, sonication? freeze-thaw? soluble fraction? lipid fraction? protein rmvl • Media • Rich (LB)? Defined? MOPS? M9? glucose?

  27. A “Toy” Problem • Succinate Dehydrogenase is a key enzyme in the aerobic TCA cycle (converts succinate to fumarate) • Fumarate Reductase is responsible for converting fumarate to succinate under anaerobic conditions • Fumarate Reductase & Succinate Dehydrogenase share ~60% sequence identity

  28. Fumarate Reductase The TCA Cycle Acetate Acetyl-CoA Glycerol Pyruvate Oxaloacetate Citrate Isocitrate L-Malate -Ketoglutarate Fumarate 2 1 Succinate dehydrogenase Succinate Succinyl-CoA

  29. Questions • Can Fumarate Reductase (FumR) substitute for Succinate Dehydrogenase (SucD)? • Can we detect any phenotypic differences between WT vs. SucD- vs. SucD-/FumR-? • Can NMR-based metabolomics be used to detect mutations/characterize phenotypes?
