Study TitleMetabolomic profiling of the rat hippocampus across developmental ages and after learning
Study TypeDevelopmental study
Study SummaryLittle is known about how the hippocampal metabolomic profile changes across development and in response to learning at different ages. To fill this knowledge gap, we employed an untargeted metabolomic analyses in rats to determine how the hippocampal metabolome changes over the course of post-natal development under basal conditions and following inhibitory avoidance (IA) training, an aversive episodic event. We found that unique metabolomic profiles accompany learning at different ages. Subsequent biochemical and behavioral studies based on unique metabolomic regulations in the infant hippocampus established that infantile learning selectively recruits the glutathione-mediated antioxidant defenses for the formation of infantile memory.

Chromatography ID:CH002101
Chromatography Summary:The first two aliquots were analyzed by two separate reverse-phase (RP)/UPLC-MS/MS methods with positive ion mode electrospray ionization (ESI): one aliquot was analyzed using acidic positive-ion conditions, chromatographically optimized for more hydrophilic compounds. In this method, the extract was gradient-eluted from a C18 column (2 mm × 100 mm Waters UPLC BEH C18 1.7 µm column held at 40°C) using 5% water and 95% methanol and containing 0.05% perfluoropentanoic acid (PFPA) and 0.1% formic acid (FA) at pH 3.5. The second aliquot was also analyzed using acidic positive-ion conditions; however, it was chromatographically optimized for more hydrophobic compounds. In this method, the extract was gradient-eluted from the aforementioned C18 column using methanol, acetonitrile, water, 0.05% PFPA, and 0.01% FA at pH 3.5. A third aliquot was analyzed by RP/UPLC-MS/MS using basic negative-ion mode ESI in a separate dedicated C18 column. The basic extracts were gradient-eluted from the column using methanol (95%) and water (5%) with 6.5 mM ammonium bicarbonate at pH 8.
