Figure 5

Antipurinergic therapy improved the widespread metabolomic abnormalities in the Fragile X mouse model. A total of 673 plasma metabolites from 60 biochemical pathways were measured by liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) and analyzed by partial least squares discriminant analysis (PLSDA). The three top multivariate components were then plotted on x, y, and z-axes, respectively. Suramin treatment shifted metabolism in the direction of wild-type controls. Age 25 weeks, N = 9-11 per group.
