Marine Environmental Metabolomics Book Review:

Marine environmental metabolomics studies the interactions of marine organisms with their environment using metabolomics to characterise these interactions. There are many advantages in using this method to study interactions between organisms and the environment and to assess the function and health of organisms at the molecular level. In fact, metabolomics is finding an increasing number of applications in the marine sciences. These range from understanding the response of organisms to abiotic pressure to researching the response of organisms to other biota. These interactions can be studied at different levels, from individuals to populations for more traditional eco-physiological or ecological studies. Marine organisms have developed a high diversity of chemical defences to avoid predators and parasites. This study therefore highlights the complexity of chemical interactions in the marine environment. The research methods include 1H- and 13C-NMR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, analytical and preparative chromatography, and a multitude of bio-assays.

Variation Within Arabidopsis Thaliana Ecotypic Responses to Environmental Change Book Review:

Global average atmospheric CO2 concentrations are predicted to double before the end of this century. This increase has been predicted to raise global average temperatures, which in turn will increase atmospheric humidity. How plants will respond to these changes is an area of intense study. The variation within ecotypic responses of Arabidopsis thaliana to these environmental variables (C02, temperature and humidity) is explored in this thesis using a combination of morphological and novel environmental metabolomics techniques. This study utilises ecotypes of Arabidopsis thaliana originating from a range of altitudes and geographical locations to elucidate altitude-mediated variation In response to changes In environmental conditions. Morphological investigation shows that stomatal conductance is regulated by an interchangeable mechanism of stomatal density and stomatal aperture over a range of CO2 treatments and that elevated temperature or humidity can disrupt this mechanism. Furthermore, these characteristics of stomatal responses of Arabidopsis thaliana are shown to be independent of ecotypic altitude of origin. Environmental metabolomic analysis demonstrated clear separation between ecotypic rnetabolite fingerprints as well as showing correlations between ecotype altitude of origin and specific plant primary and secondary metabolites; providing novel elucidation of biochemical pathways involved in responses to environmental perturbation.

NMR Spectroscopy Book Review:

The challenges faced by environmental scientists today are vast,complex, and multi-faceted. For instance, predicting the fateof an environmental pollutant or understanding ecosystem responsesto climate change, necessitate a firm understanding of molecularstructure and dynamics of environmental media as well as thecomponents that exist and interact within this media. Furthermore, linking information obtained at the molecular-scale toecosystem-level processes is a major pursuit of modernenvironmental research. As such, NMR spectroscopy and itsscalability from the molecular-scale to the macroscopic-scale, isfacilitating rapid growth in environmental science. In addition,the versatility of NMR spectroscopy has resulted in the developmentand implementation of different types of NMR techniques to examinethe structure of various types of environmental samples, living andnon-living, as well as the study of critical environmentalprocesses. This comprehensive handbook is a collection of chapters thatspan from methods to how NMR is used in environmental research togain insight into various ecosystem properties. It is organized into three parts: Part A focuses on methods used in environmental NMRwhich span from solution-state to magnetic resonanceimaging. Part B emphasizes how NMR spectroscopy plays anessential role in understanding various types of environmentalcomponents and related processes, including different forms oforganic matter found in soil, water, and air as well as how NMR isused to probe the fate of water, organic pollutants, and metals inthe environment.

Metabolomics in Crop Research Current and Emerging Methodologies Book Review:

The plant metabolome is highly complex, being composed of over 200,000 metabolites. The characterization of these small molecules has been crucial to study plant growth and development as well as their response to environmental changes. The potential of metabolomics in plant research, particularly if applied to crop plants, is also extremely valuable in the discovery of biomarkers and in the improvement of crop yield and quality. This Frontiers Research Topic addresses many applications of metabolomics to crop research, based on different analytical platforms, including mass spectrometry, and nuclear magnetic resonance. It comprises 13 articles from 109 authors that show the importance and the contribution of metabolomics in the analysis of crop’s traceability and genetic variation, in the study of fruit development, and in the understanding of the plant’s response to the environment and to different biotic and abiotic stresses.

Artemia Franciscana as a Model for Stress in Saltwater Lakes Book Review:

Due to rising salinity of freshwater systems and the lack of information about contaminants in saltwater lakes, there is a need for new methods to identify stressors and their effects in saline environments. We propose the use of the saltwater aquatic crustacean, Artemia franciscana, as a model organism for environmental metabolomics analysis of stressors for saltwater ecosystems. Artemia is an ideal indicator species because it is well-studied, have short life-cycles, and are robust. Their hemolymph has a high concentration of small molecule metabolites in an open circulatory system that is susceptible to environmental conditions and amenable to metabolomics analysis. Environmental metabolomics methods use analytical techniques, such as nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and mass spectrometry (MS), with chemometric analysis to characterize the interactions of an organism with its environment. When exposed to a stressor, these methods are used to identify biomarkers of exposure and assess the biochemical pathways that are impacted. The small molecule metabolite profile of Artemia was characterized using 1D and 2D NMR and GC-MS and 43 metabolites were identified. Environmental metabolomics methods were developed using untargeted 1H NMR and GC-MS analysis coupled with high-content imaging to assess Artemia exposed to established and emerging stressors, which included temperature stress, Roundup® herbicide, and tris(1,3-dichloro-2-propyl) phosphate (TDCIPP) flame retardant. Targeted metabolomics analysis with LC-MS/MS was introduced to study the effects of perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), 118 metabolites were identified with this method. Multivariate and univariate statistical analysis was used to identify biomarkers of exposure for each stressor and pathway analysis identified biochemical pathways that were likely affected. Although each stressor had a unique effect, it was determined that sugars, which are important for energy pathways such as glycolysis, and osmolytes, such as betaine and gadusol, play an important role in Artemia stress response.

Metabolomics Book Review:

Metabolomics is the logical progression of the study of genes, transcripts and proteins. Nutrients, gut microbial metabolites and other bioactive food constituents interact with the body at system, organ, cellular and molecular levels, and effect the expression of genome at several levels, and subsequently, the production of metabolites. This book presents an overview of nutrigenomics and metabolomics tools, and their perspective in livestock health and production. In addition, this book describes how lists of masses (molecular ions) and mass unit bins of interest are searched within online databases for compound identification, the extra biochemical data required for metabolite confirmation, how data are visualised and what the putative and protein sequences are associated with observed metabolic changes. Moreover, environmental metabolomics is the application of metabolomics to the investigation of both free-living organisms directly obtained from the natural environment or laboratory conditions. This book outlines some of the advances made in areas of plant environmental metabolomics. The applications of microbial metagenomics, the use of genomics techniques to the study of communities of directly in their diverse natural environments, are explored as well. Other chapters examine the abnormalities in metabolism of cancer cells, which could play a strategic role in tumour initiation and behaviour.
