    Analyzing the endothelium's metabolome in the context of pulmonary hypertension
    Author(s): Clarissa Erica* and David Jones

    Group 1 Idiopathic Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (IPAH) and connective tissue disease-associated PAH (CTD-aPAH) and group 4 Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension (CTEPH) are two of the five clinical diagnostic categories for Pulmonary Hypertension (PH). The disease PH is progressive, fatal, and incurable. Recent research has shown that aberrant metabolic processes in the endothelium may play a key part in the pathogenic mechanisms producing PH, but these pathways are still poorly understood. In order to examine intracellular metabolism, this study provides a novel method for analyzing PH endothelium function. It builds on the genome scale metabolic reconstruction of the EC. We show that, regardless of the PH diagnosis, the intracellular metabolic activities of ECs in PH patients cluster into four phenotypes. Notably, the clinical importance of the metabolic phenotypes is sug.. Read More»
