Gene metabolite profile integration to understand the cause of spaceflight induced immunodeficiency

PMCID: 5788863
PMID: 29387784
DOI: 10.1038/s41526-017-0038-4

[…] 0m/z. From the pool of detected ions (signal-to-baseline ratio ≥2), moderated t-test (p < 0.1) screened positive and negative ions as significantly different between the experimental variables. Using MetaboSearch (, 50% of the peaks were annotated by chemical identifiers queried from the four major metabolite databases: Human Metabolome DataBase (HMDB) […]


Functional Characteristics of the Flying Squirrel's Cecal Microbiota under a Leaf Based Diet, Based on Multiple Meta Omic Profiling

Front Microbiol
PMCID: 5758534
PMID: 29354108
DOI: 10.3389/fmicb.2017.02622

[…] rocessed by TargetAnalysis (Version 1.1, Bruker Daltonics) and XCMS (Smith et al., ) with optimized parameters for Bruker Q-TOF mass spectrometer (Tautenhahn et al., ). Metabolites were identified by MetaboSearch (Zhou et al., ) and matched with theoretical m/z values against the Madison Metabolomics Consortium Database (Cui et al., ). Identified metabolites were further annotated according to the […]


The early metabolomic response of adipose tissue during acute cold exposure in mice

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5471228
PMID: 28615704
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-03108-x

[…] andards (MSMLS; IROA Technologies, Bolton, MA). In addition, databases of accurate masses taken from Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes (KEGG), Lipidmaps, Human Metabolome database and Metlin by MetaboSearch were also mined. MS data were then combined to the MRS data for the subsequent post-processing, followed by multivariate analyses and statistical significance analysis. […]


From chromatogram to analyte to metabolite. How to pick horses for courses from the massive web resources for mass spectral plant metabolomics

PMCID: 5499862
PMID: 28520864
DOI: 10.1093/gigascience/gix037

[…] ed in more detail below.The most common tools are based on matching spectra or exact masses from unknown compounds against spectral data deposited in some database. One example using this approach is MetaboSearch [], which accepts either a list of m/z or the output of CAMERA as input and searches against 4 major metabolite databases, the Human Metabolome DataBase (HMDB), Madison Metabolomics Conso […]


Metabolomic profiling of breast tumors using ductal fluid

PMCID: 5117995
PMID: 27748798
DOI: 10.3892/ijo.2016.3732

[…] tabolomic profiles of LASSO selected ions across different demographic and clinical characteristics.Putative identifications for the resulting ion list were obtained through a mass-based search using MetaboSearch (), which searches for putative identifications against four databases: the Human Metabolite DataBase (HMDB) (), Metlin (), Madison Metabolomics Consortium Database (MMCD) (), and LIPID M […]


In Depth Characterization and Validation of Human Urine Metabolomes Reveal Novel Metabolic Signatures of Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms

Sci Rep
PMCID: 4977550
PMID: 27502322
DOI: 10.1038/srep30869

[…] s. Metabolite identification was performed according to our designed flowchart in . First, accurate masses of selected features were searched against multiple databases (mass error < 5 ppm) using the MetaboSearch software, including Human Metabolome Database, Madison Metabolomics Consortium Database, Metlin, and LIPID MAPS. Features with matching results from the databases were subjected to LC tar […]
