Project Title:Improved Extraction method of Polar and Charged Metabolites from Cyanobacteria.
Project Summary:We report excellent extraction method for cyanobacteria of the genus Synechococcus, viz., Synechococcus sp. PCC 7002, Synechococcus elongatus PCC 7942, and a newly isolated Synechococcus elongatus PCC 11801 (manuscript under review). High resolution-LC/MS was used to assess the relative abundance of the extracted metabolites. The different solvent systems used for extraction led to statistically significant changes in the extraction efficiency for a large number of metabolites. While a few hundred m/z features or potential metabolites were detected with different solvent systems, the abundance of over a quarter of all metabolites varied significantly from one solvent system to another. Further, the extraction methods were evaluated for a targeted set of metabolites that are important in 13C-MFA studies of photosynthetic organisms. While for the strain PCC 7002, the reported method using methanol-chloroform-water system gave satisfactory results, a mild base in the form of NH4OH had to be used in place of water to achieve adequate levels of extraction for PCC 7942 and PCC 11801.

Collection ID:CO001093
Collection Summary:20 mL Cyanobacterial cells grown at exponential phase were filtered and extracted with the extraction buffers suggested.
Sample Type:Bacterial cells


Treatment ID:TR001113
Treatment Summary:Various cells were extracted using the extraction solutions described as Method 1, Method 2A and Method 2B

Sample Preparation:

Sampleprep ID:SP001106
Sampleprep Summary:The cell suspension was filtered through a 0.8 µm nylon membrane and the filtered cells was quickly placed in 1.6 ml cold methanol (100%) or methanol-water mixture (80:20 v/v). The mixture was incubated at -80 °C for 1 hour following which the cell-solvent mixture was removed and placed in a 15 mL centrifuge tube. The cells sticking to the filter were then scraped off with chloroform (2.4 mL) and mixed with the cell-solvent mixture. The mixture was vortexed for 20 minutes under cold conditions (vortexed for 30s and kept on ice for 1 minute and the cycle repeated). Two mL of MilliQ water or NH4OH solution in water (at concentrations of 0.2 M, 0.4 M) was added into the mixture to separate the phases. The mixture was vortexed for 10 minutes, centrifuged for 15 minutes at 3200g at 4 °C to obtain two separate phases and the top aqueous-rich layer was collected (approximately 3 mL), evaporated to dryness and stored at -80 °C until further analysis. The stored pellets were reconstituted in 100 μL of 50/50 methanol-water mixture and filtered before injecting on LC/MS.
