NOSTER Launches Metabolome Analysis Service of Metabolites Produced by Gut Microbiota and Announces Recipients of 2022 NOSTER & Science Microbiome Prize

NOSTER Launches Metabolome Analysis Service of Metabolites Produced by Gut Microbiota and Announces Recipients of 2022 NOSTER & Science Microbiome Prize

Metabolome Analysis Service

Noster supports the process from actual measurement to data analysis.

Metabolomic analysis can be applied to a wide range of areas related to fats and oils and microorganisms, including basic research, medicine, development of dietary supplements and exploration of new functions of processed foods.

Recipient of 2022 NOSTER & Science Microbiome Prize

2022 is the third year of the award and this year’s winner is Jennifer Hampton Hill (University of Utah), and the finalists are Apollo Stacy (now at the National Institutes of Health, Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute) and Irina Leonardi (currently Scientific Communications Lead at Immunai in New York).

About NOSTER & Science Microbiome Prize according to the website

“The NOSTER Science Microbiome Prize has been established to reward innovative research by young scientists working on the functional properties of the microbiota of any organism that has the potential to contribute to our understanding of human or veterinary health and disease or to guide therapeutic interventions.”

Background to Noster’s Metabolome Analysis Service

Recent advances in biotechnology have led to the widespread use of comprehensive analysis methods including metabolomes and metagenomes. Among them, metabolome analysis can comprehensively detect metabolism, which is a chemical reaction necessary to sustain life. Comprehensive analysis of metabolites enables us to understand changes in the metabolic system of the body, leading to an understanding of life phenomena.

Noster has focused on gut microbial lipid metabolites for many years with the vision “Connecting life & gut microbiome”, and in collaboration with Prof. June Ogawa and docent Shigenobu Kishino from the Graduate School of Agriculture, Kyoto University discovered that gut microbiota have a lipid metabolism pathway distinct from that of the host, and that dietary lipids produce unique lipid metabolites that cannot be produced by humans. Based on these findings, Noster has built a comprehensive library of original lipid metabolites produced by gut microbiota.

Furthermore, a collaboration with a professor Makoto Arita of Keio University The Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences (and the RIKEN Center for Biomedical Sciences) – an internationally renowned researcher known for its research on the development of lipid metabolome analysis technology – has enabled Noster to use its lipid library for the development of cutting-edge mass spectroscopy technology capable of detecting specific gut microbial lipid metabolites.

Noster takes full advantage of this technology to provide state-of-the-art Metabolome Analysis Service to explore the properties of the still unexplored world of gut microbial metabolites. In addition Metabolome Analysis Servicewe also provide one Service for the analysis of gut microbiotawhich can be used in combination to elucidate the relationship between gut microbiota and metabolites.
