Mitochondrial lipid profiling data of a traumatic optic neuropathy model

Data in Brief
Ronaldo NuesiSanjoy K Bhattacharya


Traumatic optic neuropathy (TON) is a degenerative process that occurs in a subset of patients following blunt force trauma to the head. This condition is characterized by retinal ganglion cell (RGC) death and axon degeneration within the optic nerve [1]. At the cellular level, mitochondrial changes are associated with many optic neuropathies [2, 3]. Here, we provide a dataset demonstrating changes in the optic nerve mitochondrial lipid profile of a sonication-induced traumatic optic neuropathy (SI-TON) mouse model at 1, 7, and 14 days after injury. 32 C57BL/6J mice were separated into 4 groups (control, 1, 7, and 14 days) of 8, with 4 males and 4 females in each. Mice were exposed to sonication-induced trauma as described previously (by Tao et al) and optic nerves were harvested at 1, 7, or 14 days following injury [4]. Mitochondria were isolated from homogenized optic nerves and lipids were extracted. Extracted mitochondrial lipids were analysed with a Q-Exactive Orbitrap Liquid Chromatography-Mass Spectrometer (LC MS-MS). Further analysis of raw data was conducted with LipidSearch 4.1.3 and Metaboanalyst 4.0. This data is publicly available at the Metabolomics Workbench, (Project ID: PR00...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Head And Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinomas account for >90% of all tumors in the head and neck region. Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma incidence has increased dramatically recently with little improvement in patient outcomes. Here is the latest research on this aggressive malignancy.

Signaling in Adult Neurogenesis

Neural stem cells play a critical role in the production of neuronal cells in neurogenesis is of great importance. Of interest is the role signalling mechanisms in adult neurogenesis. Discover the latest research on signalling in adult neurogenesis.

Psychiatric Chronotherapy

Psychiatric Chronotherapy considers the circadian rhythm as a major factor for optimizing therapeutic efficacy of psychiatric interventions. Discover the latest research on Psychiatric Chronotherapy here.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
