  • We present a novel approach to improve accuracy of metabolite identification by combining direct infusion ESI MS1 with 1D 1H NMR spectroscopy. The new approach first applies standard 1D 1H NMR metabolite identification protocol by matching the chemical shift, J-coupling and intensity information of experimental NMR signals against the NMR signals of standard metabolites in metabolomics library. This generates a list of candidate metabolites. The list contains false positive and ambiguous identifications. Next, we constrained the list with the chemical formulas derived from high-resolution direct infusion ESI MS1 spectrum of the same sample. Detection of the signals of a metabolitemore » both in NMR and MS significantly improves the confidence of identification and eliminates false positive identification. 1D 1H NMR and direct infusion ESI MS1 spectra of a sample can be acquired in parallel in several minutes. This is highly beneficial for rapid and accurate screening of hundreds of samples in high-throughput metabolomics studies. In order to make this approach practical, we developed a software tool, which is integrated to Chenomx NMR Suite. The approach is demonstrated on a model mixture, tomato and Arabidopsis thaliana metabolite extracts, and human urine.« less
  • Purpose: In this study, we investigated whether microRNA-367 (miR-367) may serve as a circulating biomarker and tumor oncogene in esophageal squamous carcinoma (ESCC). Methods: Circulating serum miR-367 was compared by quantitative RT-PCR (qRT-PCR) between 35 ESCC patients and 35 normal control patients, as well paired ESCC tumor tissues and adjacent non-tumor esophageal epithelial tissues in 46 patients. The correlation between serum miR-367 and clinicopathological properties of ESCC patients was assessed. The overall survival (OS) was assessed by Kaplan–Meier method and compared by log-rank test between patients with high serum miR-367 and low serum miR-367. The possibility of miR-367 being independentmore » prognostic factor for ESCC was also assessed. Furthermore, lentivirus-mediated miR-367 downregulation was conducted in ESCC cell lines Kyse30 and TE-1 cells to assess the possible oncogenic effect of miR-367 on ESCC proliferation and cell cycle transition in vitro. Results: MiR-367 was aberrantly upregulated in sera and tumors of ESCC patients, whereas downregulated in ESCC patients after the treatments of esophagectomy and chemotherapy. Serum miR-367 was found to be closely correlated with the clinicopathological properties of differentiation grades, clinical stage and tumor metastasis in ESCC patients. Serum miR-367 was also confirmed to be associated with OS, as well as serving independent prognostic factor in ESCC patients. Moreover, lentivirus-induced miR-367 downregulation inhibited cancer growth and cell cycle transition in Kyse30 and TE-1 cells. Conclusion: MiR-367 is a potential biomarker for ESCC and may act as an oncogene in regulating ESCC development. - Highlights: • MiR-367 was aberrantly upregulated in sera and tumors of ESCC patients. • MiR-367 was downregulated in ESCC patients after esophagectomy or chemotherapy. • Serum miR-367 was correlated with the clinicopathological properties of ESCC patients. • Serum miR-367 was associated with OS in ESCC patients. • lentivirus-induced miR-367 downregulation inhibited ESCC growth and cell cycle transition.« less
  • A GC/MS method for the characterization of 22-year-old spilled Arrow oil is described. After 22 years of weathering in the environment, most saturated hydrocarbons and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in most Arrow oil samples have been lost. Their fingerprint give little information of the source, characteristics, and fate of the spilled oil. However, the method using biomarker compounds by GC/MS offers the distinct advantages of being better able to withstand interference from heavy weathering effects and to identify and match the spilled oil source. From 11 intertidal sediment samples collected from the shorelines of Chedabucto Bay, 47 triterpanes and steranes weremore » positively identified. The relative abundance ratios of several pairs of triterpane and sterane compounds, especially the ratio of C[sub 29]/C[sub 30] hopanes that are displayed as major peaks in the m/z 191 ion chromatograms, are apparently independent of weathering effects and are unambiguously used for identifying the source of the 22-year-old Arrow oil samples. 27 refs., 8 figs., 6 tabs.« less
  • Biogases such as landfill gas and sewage gas undergo a combustion process which is generating electric energy. Since several trace compounds such as siloxanes (also halogenated and sulfur compounds) are known to cause severe problems to these gas combustion engines, they are of particular interest. In this work, a new technique for sampling, identification, and quantification of siloxanes and volatile organic carbon (VOC) in landfill gas and sewage gas is presented. After sample collection using evacuated stainless steel canisters biogas was analyzed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry/atomic emission spectroscopy (GC-MS/AES). Using gas canisters, the sampling process was simplified (no vacuum pumpmore » needed), and multiple analysis was possible. The simultaneous application of MSD and AED allowed a rapid screening of silicon compounds in the complex biogases. Individual substances were identified independently both by MSD analysis and by determination of their elemental constitution. Quantification of trace compounds was achieved using a 30 component external standard containing siloxanes, organochlorine and organosulfur compounds, alkanes, terpenes, and aromatic compounds. Precision, linearity, and detection limits have been studied. In real samples, concentrations of silicon containing compounds (trimethylsilanol, hexamethyldisiloxane, octamethyltrisiloxane, decamethyltetrasiloxane, hexamethylcyclotrisiloxane, octamethylcyclotetrasilioxane, decamethylcyclopentasiloxane, and dodecamethylcyclohexasiloxane) in the mg/m{sub 3} range have been observed.« less
