Bottom Line: Overall, this is a large scale and non-targeted chromatographic MS-based metabolomics study, using samples from over 1,000 individuals, to provide a comprehensive measurement of their serum metabolomes.This work provides an important baseline or reference dataset for understanding the 'normal' relative concentrations and variation in the human serum metabolome.These may be related to our increasing knowledge of the human metabolic network map.

ABSTRACT

Phenotyping of 1,200 'healthy' adults from the UK has been performed through the investigation of diverse classes of hydrophilic and lipophilic metabolites present in serum by applying a series of chromatography-mass spectrometry platforms. These data were made robust to instrumental drift by numerical correction; this was prerequisite to allow detection of subtle metabolic differences. The variation in observed metabolite relative concentrations between the 1,200 subjects ranged from less than 5 % to more than 200 %. Variations in metabolites could be related to differences in gender, age, BMI, blood pressure, and smoking. Investigations suggest that a sample size of 600 subjects is both necessary and sufficient for robust analysis of these data. Overall, this is a large scale and non-targeted chromatographic MS-based metabolomics study, using samples from over 1,000 individuals, to provide a comprehensive measurement of their serum metabolomes. This work provides an important baseline or reference dataset for understanding the 'normal' relative concentrations and variation in the human serum metabolome. These may be related to our increasing knowledge of the human metabolic network map. Information on the Husermet study is available at http://www.husermet.org/. Importantly, all of the data are made freely available at MetaboLights (http://www.ebi.ac.uk/metabolights/).

Heatmap with dendrogram of Pearson’s correlation analysis between metabolites detected by GC–MS and clinical chemistry data. The arrangement of the clusters are produced by hierarchical clustering on both metabolites and clinical chemistry data. The lower bar represents the colour code of coefficients from pairwise Pearson’s correlations between GC–MS data and the clinical chemistry data (Color figure online)

Mentions: In addition to metabolite profiling, each sample was also subjected to a panel of conventional clinical chemistry assays. This was to enable positive and negative correlations (if any) to these standard clinical diagnostics and the broader metabolic phenotypes to be determined. This ability to anchor newer methods of volunteer/patient phenotyping, in this case metabotyping, with currently used “best practice” represents an important step towards obtaining wider acceptance of the utility of the metabolite profiling approach. The results of this for the correlation of clinical chemistry with GC–MS analysis is illustrated in Fig. 7 (UPLC–MS correlation in Supplementary Fig. 5).Fig. 7
