Keywords : Mitochondria, Metabolomics, Lipidomics


 State of the art and objectives

At the crossroad between biochemistry and mathematics, metabolomics is a powerful tool for biomarkers and drug discovery in clinical and experimental studies. We have developed three metabolomic pipelines allowing the analysis of more than 1000 polar metabolites and lipids to explore the mitochondrial dysfunctions in diseases and experimental models. Multivariate statistical modelling and machine learning approaches are used to identify the biological fingerprints of these diseases and experimental models. This approach was found very powerful since discriminant models were obtained in most of the conditions tested, and several of these studies have revealed new therapeutic avenues.

Main results from the last 5 years

We have contributed to characterize the metabolomic and lipidomic signatures in the following clinical studies:

  • Primary Open Angle Glaucoma (plasma and aqueous humor)
  • Exfoliation syndrome (plasma)
  • Leber Hereditary Optic Neuropathy (fibroblasts)
  • OPA1-related Dominant Optic Atrophy (plasma, fibroblasts)
  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (cerebrospinal fluid, fibroblasts)
  • Cardiac Remote Ischemic Preconditioning (serum)
  • Ovary insufficiency (follicular fluid)
  • Hypothermia fatalities (serum, urines, vitreous humor)

We have contributed to characterize the metabolomic and lipidomic signatures in the following pre-clinical studies:

  • Cardiac Remote Ischemic Preconditioning (rat, serum)
  • OPA1-related Dominant Optic Atrophy (Opa1+/- mouse model, Opa1-/- mouse embryonic fibroblasts)
  • Retinal preconditioning light stress (rat, retina)
  • Obesity-induced metabolic disturbance in the retina (rat)
  • Metabolomics of combined mitochondrial + endoplasmic reticulum fraction (human fibroblasts)
