Treatment ID:TR002922
Treatment Summary:In vitro metabolic flux experiments involved the media in confluent cells being changed just before the experiment. Three biological replicate samples of each cell line were pulsed with 10 μM U-glucose (13C6 99% purity) label from Cambridge Isotope (No. CLM-1396-1) or 4 μM U-glutamine (13C5, 15N2, 99% purity) label from Cambridge Isotope (No. CNLM-1275-H-0.5) for 2 h. Following the pulse, cells were spun down and washed with PBS. 1 mL of 80% UPLC-grade ice cold methanol was added to each pellet. Pellets were vortexed for 1 min and incubated at −80 °C to extract metabolites. Analysis of metabolites is described below. In Vivo Stable Isotope Labeling and Metabolite Extraction and Analyses Uniformly labeled glutamine was prepared at a 100 μM concentration in PBS and uniformly labeled glucose was prepared as a 20% solution in PBS. Three animals per group were given three 100 μL IP injections of isotope spaced 15 min apart. Euthanasia occurred two hours after the second isotope injection. Tumors were visually identified in the right cerebellar hemisphere due to their more grey/white appearance compared to the normal cerebellum and were dissected and immediately removed and flash frozen in liquid nitrogen. All uniformly labeled isotopes were obtained from Cambridge Isotope Labs, Tewksbury, MA, USA.
