Abstract :

Absolute quantification of free intracellular metabolites is a meaningful tool in both pathway discovery and metabolic engineering efforts. Today, improved metabolomics tools make it possible to detect and quantify a wide range of metabolites providing useful information for pathway discovery and to improve the understanding of cellular systems and metabolism. However, most of these tools were designed for specific classes of metabolites and microorganisms; but in many studies sampling protocols are simply taken from the literature without validating them for the given conditions and the investigated organism, which can lead to highly biased results. Thus, sampling, quenching and extraction protocols need to be validated for each microorganism and metabolite of interest. Currently, we are investigating the metabolic state of Pseudomonas taiwanensis VLB120 to provide a useful reference dataset of absolute intracellular metabolite concentrations. We are also testing the suitability of different metabolomics tools with the objective of identifying a better sampling and quenching/extraction techniques for P. taiwanensis VLB120 metabolome study.
