Study IDST002349
Study TitleBiomolecular condensates create phospholipid-enriched microenvironments (Part 1)
Study TypeMetabolomes of in vitro synthesized condensates
Study SummaryProteins and RNA are able to phase separate from the aqueous cellular environment to form sub-cellular compartments called condensates. This process results in a protein-RNA mixture that is chemically distinct from the surrounding aqueous phase. Here we use mass spectrometry to characterize the metabolomes of condensates. To test this, we prepared mixtures of phase-separated proteins and cellular metabolites and identified metabolites enriched in the condensate phase. These proteins included SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid, as well as low complexity domains of MED1 and HNRNPA1.

Sample Preparation:

Sampleprep ID:SP002597
Sampleprep Summary:Metabolites were then extracted from each fraction and the input for LC-MS as follows. First the samples were diluted in ammonium bicarbonate buffer (50 mM NH4HCO3 pH 7.5) and briefly heated (2 min, 65oC) to disrupt condensates before being added immediately to 4x volume of ice-cold 100% methanol to precipitate protein and RNA. This heating step does not appear to be necessary for extracting these metabolites and can be excluded (Extended Data Fig. 2e,g). Protein and RNA were separated from metabolites by vortexing the samples (2 min), followed by incubation at -25oC (10 min) and then centrifugation (5 min, 13,000 rpm). The supernatant was saved and the process was repeated on the pellet two more times after adding 200 µl of 80% methanol each time to the pellet. The three supernatants were combined and centrifuged (10 min, 14000 rpm) to remove any additional macromolecules. The final supernatant was collected and dried using a SpeedVac Concentrator run at 25oC. On the day of metabolite analysis, dried-down extracts were reconstituted in 150 µl 70% acetonitrile, at a relative protein concentration of ~ 2 µg/µl, and 4 µl of this reconstituted extract was injected for LC/MS-based targeted and untargeted metabolite profiling.
