The effect of developmental vitamin D deficiency on adult liver metabolite profiles was determined. Untargeted profiling of whole liver metabolites from adult male Collaborative Cross mice was performed using mass spectrometry (Metabolon, Inc.).


Steps to reproduce

Four platforms were utilized by Metabolon, Inc. in order to capture metabolites across a wide range of varying chemical properties: 1) RP/UPLC-MS/MS with acidic positive ion mode electrospray ionization (ESI) for hydrophilic compounds, 2) RP/UPLC-MS/MS with acidic positive ion mode ESI for hydrophobic compounds, 3) RP/UPLC- MS/MS with basic negative ion mode ESI, and 4) HILIC/UPLC-MS/MS with negative ion mode ESI. Metabolites were identified based on spectrum properties (m/z and retention time/index). All raw data were median normalized and samples with measurements that fell below the limit of quantitation were imputed to the limit of quantitation. Sample demographics are as follows: Mus musculus; Male; F1 Collaborative Cross offspring; 8-9 weeks of age; exposed to a vitamin D sufficient (CON) or vitamin D deficient (LVD) diet from conception until weaning. Strains include: 1b (CC001-dam x CC011-sire) and 1a (CC011-dam x CC001-sire).
