Study IDST000909
Study TitleMetabolomics Linking Air Pollution, Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes
Study TypeUntargeted high-resolution mass spectrometry profiling
Study SummaryThe overall goal of this proposal is to use blood non-targeted high resolution metabolomics (HRM) to investigate the hypothesis that regional air pollution (NO2, PM2.5 and O3) and traffic-related air pollution exposures (traffic-related particulate matter components including EC2.5 and PM2.5 transition metals, and CALINE model-predicted NOx) alter key metabolic pathway(s) and that these alterations are associated with obesity and type 2 diabetes-related traits during the important developmental period of adolesence in the ongoing prospective Chidlren's Health study (CHS). Specific Aim 1 will examine the adverse impact of environmental chemicals in fasting blood samples measured by HRM on obesity (i.e., total body fat and body mass index (BMI)), metabolic dysfunction (e.g., fasting glucose and insulin concentrations and insulin resistance), and obesity-induced inflammation (i.e., leptin) among 104 Southern California adolescents enrolled in the CHS. Specific Aim 2 will examine associations of childhood exposures to PM2.5 and traffic-related air pollutants (i.e., CALINE model-predicted NOx) with biological metabolites identified in fasting blood samples using HRM among 104 adolescents in the CHS. Specific Aim 3 will investigate the metabolic pathways linking air pollution exposures and obesity and type 2 diabetes-related traits using pathway analysis under bayesian hierarchical model among 104 adolescents in the CHS.

Sample Preparation:

Sampleprep ID:SP000953
Sampleprep Summary:Samples were prepared for metabolomics analysis using established methods (Johnson et al. (2010). Analyst; Go et al. (2015). Tox Sci). Prior to analysis, urine aliquots were removed from storage at -80°C and thawed on ice. Each cryotube was then vortexed briefly to ensure homogeneity, and 50 μL was transferred to a clean microfuge tube. Immediately after, the urine was treated with 100 μL of ice-cold LC-MS grade acetonitrile (Sigma Aldrich) containing 2.5 μL of internal standard solution with eight stable isotopic chemicals selected to cover a range of chemical properties. Following addition of acetonitrile, urine was equilibrated for 30 min on ice, upon which precipitated proteins were removed by centrifuge (16.1 ×g at 4°C for 10 min). The resulting supernatant (100 μL) was removed, added to a low volume autosampler vial and maintained at 4°C until analysis (<22 h).
