Accumulating data suggests that pulmonary artery endothelial cells in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension operate a hypoxia-like metabolic program. It is unclear how this metabolic program supports the dysregulated cell growth characteristic of this disease. In order to address this question, we will develop maps of intracellular metabolic pathways in pulmonary artery endothelial cells cultured in normoxic and hypoxic conditions utilizing cutting-edge technologies including stable isotope tracing liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry. The interested student will take full responsibility for this project, including learning cell culture techniques, approaches to metabolic labeling, sample preparation, fundamentals of LC-MS, and data analysis.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
