Glioblastoma (GBM) is the most aggressive form of brain tumor. The average survival of patients with this condition is about 15 months regardless of treatment choice, which range from surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. GBMs are often associated with molecular heterogeneity and it is becoming well understood that a small subpopulation of cells within the tumor referred to as glioma stem cells (GSC) mediate treatment resistance and enhanced tumorigenicity. Through this work, we have made an attempt to uncover whether these subtypes are maintained by differentially regulated metabolites using cell culture models comprising of normal human astrocytes, glioblastomas and GSCs. Metabolites in the extracellular and intracellular compartments of cells were analyzed both on the discovery mode using LC-MS Quadrupole Time of Flight (Q-TOF) and validation mode using LC-MS Triple Quad (QQQ). Our results disclosed an interesting list of differentially regulated metabolites when comparing extracellular / intracellular compartments. The differentially regulated metabolites were identified using multivariate analysis. The identified metabolites in endogenous and exogenous compartments correlate with the degree of tumorigenicity and treatment resistance. To avoid false positives, the differentially regulated metabolites were confirmed by chromatography retention time, isotopic and mass fragmentation patterns of synthetic compounds. Currently, we are conducting functional studies in cell lines by exogenous addition of metabolites. This study provides evidence of the differentially regulated metabolites which dictate the difference in the metabolism and pathways in GBM. The results of these studies will be presented.
