Study IDST000361
Study TitleCharacterization and Plasticity of the Metabolome in Peripheral Cells in Bipolar I Disorder
Study TypeBroad Spectrum LCMS
Study SummaryPatients with Bipolar I Disorder (BPI) and matched non-affected controls were recruited. Males and females from all races and ethnicities between the ages of 19-65 participated in the research. Skin biopsies were obtained and fibroblasts were isolated from each of these biopsies. A total of 1 x 〖10〗^7 fibroblasts cells were used for metabolomics. Cell pellets were flash frozen in liquid nitrogen and shipped on dry ice to the NIH Eastern Regional Comprehensive Metabolomic Resource Core at RTI International in North Carolina. Metabolomics will be determined using a broad spectrum metabolomics protocol by RTI

Sample Preparation:

Sampleprep ID:SP000389
Sampleprep Summary:Whole study pooled QC samples were created by combining 175 µL aliquot from each of the study samples into a 20 mL scintillation vial. The QC pooled sample was then vortexed for 30 seconds on an analog vortex mixer. Aliquots, 300 µL, were transferred to five new pre-labeled 2.0 mL LoBind Eppendorf tubes and stored at -80 °C for one hour. Next, the supernatants of the study and whole study pooled QC samples, generated above, were dried overnight using a lyophilizer. The residue was reconstituted in 75 µL of reconstitution buffer ( 95:5 Water:Methanol, v/v) and mixed on a multiple tube vortexer for five minutes at 5,000 rpm. Then, the samples were centrifuged at room temperature at 16,000 rcf for four minutes, and the supernatants were transferred to clean pre-labeled autosampler vials for data acquisition.
