Abstract [en]

Metabolomics has grown into a prominent field contributing to the molecular understanding of complex biological processes in both health and disease. Furthermore, single-cells are known to display metabolic differences between seemingly homogeneous populations of cells. Single-cell metabolomics attempts to analyze many cellular metabolites from single cells to understand phenotypic heterogeneity, which is a significant challenge due to the low analyte abundances and limited sample volumes. Label-free metabolite detection can be achieved with mass spectrometry, which is capable of simultaneously analyzing hundreds of metabolites. Herein, we review the recent advances in mass spectrometry based single-cell metabolomics, highlighting the current state-of-the-art within the last three years, and identify the challenges to move the field forward.

Abstract [en]

Capillary electrophoresis mass spectrometry (CE-MS) is an established technique for targeted and untargeted analysis of metabolites from complex biological samples. However, current CE-MS devices rely on liquid sample extracts, which restricts acquisition of spatially defined chemical information from tissue samples. The ability to chemically profile distinct cellular regions in tissue can contribute better understanding to molecular foundations in health and disease. Therefore, we describe the first CE-MS device capable of untargeted metabolite profiling directly from defined morphological regions of solid tissue sections. With surface sampling capillary electrophoresis mass spectrometry (SS-CE-MS), endogenous molecules are sampled and detected from a single defined tissue location. Characterization of SS-CE MS from different locations of the outer epidermal layer of A. Cepa demonstrated reproducible relative migration times and a peak area RSD of 20% (n = 5). Further, relative migration times were conserved for endogenous metabolites in tissues with varying complexities, including brain, spinal cord, and kidney. Results from proof-of-principle experiments from distinct morphological tissue regions reveal simultaneous analysis of small and large biomolecules, confident metabolite annotation, identification of in-source fragmentation interferences, and discrete isomeric abundances related to biological function. We envision that this new tool will provide in-depth chemical profiling and annotation of molecules in distinct cellular regions of tissue for improved biological understanding.

Abstract [en]

Liquid extraction mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) experiments provide users with direct analysis of biological surfaces with minimal sample preparation. Until now, much of the effort to increase spatial resolution for MSI with liquid extraction techniques has focused on reducing the size of the sampling area. However, this can be experimentally challenging. Here, we present oversampling as a simple alternative to increase the spatial resolution using nanospray desorption electrospray ionization (nano-DESI) MSI. By imaging partial rat spinal cord tissue sections, two major concerns with oversampling are addressed: whether endogenous molecules are significantly depleted from repeated sampling events and whether analytes are redistributed as a result of oversampling. In depth examination of ion images for representative analytes show that depletion and redistribution do not affect analyte localization in the tissue sample. Nano-DESI MSI experiments using three times oversampling provided higher spatial resolution, allowing the observation of features not visible with undersampling. Although proper care must be taken to ensure that oversampling will work in specific applications, we envision oversampling as a simple approach to increase image quality for liquid extraction MSI techniques.

Abstract [en]

Prostaglandins (PG) are an important class of lipid biomolecules that are essential in many biological processes, including inflammation and successful pregnancy. Despite a high bioactivity, physiological concentrations are typically low, which makes direct mass spectrometric analysis of endogenous PG species challenging. Consequently, there have not been any studies investigating PG localization to specific morphological regions in tissue sections using mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) techniques. Herein, we show that silver ions, added to the solvent used for nanospray desorption electrospray ionization (nano-DESI) MSI, enhances the ionization of PGs and enables nano-DESI MSI of several species in uterine tissue from day 4 pregnant mice. It was found that detection of [PG + Ag](+) ions increased the sensitivity by similar to 30 times, when compared to [PG - H](-) ions. Further, the addition of isotopically labeled internal standards enabled generation of quantitative ion images for the detected PG species. Increased sensitivity and quantitative MSI enabled the first proof-of-principle results detailing PG localization in mouse uterus tissue sections. These results show that PG species primarily localized to cellular regions of the luminal epithelium and glandular epithelium in uterine tissue. Further, this study provides a unique scaffold for future studies investigating the PG distribution within biological tissue samples.

Abstract [en]

Over the past few decades, the chemical characterization of single cells has improved immensely. In particular, mass spectrometry (MS) has pioneered direct analysis of metabolites, lipids, and peptides from single cells. This progress has been enabled by new and improved strategies for ionization and sampling, where a multitude of techniques for single‐cell MS has contributed unique insights to many different disciplines. Here, an overview of the main three techniques secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS), matrix‐assisted laser desorption ionization (MALDI), and ambient ionization for direct single‐cell MS analysis are presented, including some example studies detailing the use of single‐cell MS.

Abstract [en]

Nanospray desorption electrospray ionization (nano-DESI) has been established as a powerful technique for mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) of biomolecules from tissue samples. The direct liquid extraction of analytes from a surface at ambient pressure negates the need for significant sample preparation or matrix application. Although many recent studies have applied nano-DESI to new and exciting applications, there has not been much work in the development and improvement of the nano-DESI source. Here, we incorporate a nebulizer to replace the self-aspirating secondary capillary in the conventional nano-DESI setup, and characterize the device by use of rat kidney tissue sections. We find that the pneumatically assisted nano-DESI device offers improved sensitivity for metabolite species by 1-3 orders of magnitude through more complete desolvation and reduced ionization suppression. Further, the pneumatically assisted nano-DESI device reduces the dependence on probe-to-surface distance and enables sampling and imaging using pure water as the nano-DESI solvent. This provides exclusive detection and imaging of many highly polar endogenous species. Overall, the developed pneumatically assisted nano-DESI device provides more versatile solvent selection and an increased sensitivity for metabolites, which generates ion images of higher contrast - allowing for more intricate studies of metabolite distribution.
