A metabolomic investigation of chronic unpredictable mild stress (CUMS) rats was carried out. Plasma obtained from Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats treated by CUMS was analyzed using gas chromatography/mass spectrometry. Thirty-seven metabolites were identified among the detected compounds. Subsequent data analysis using the t test and principal component analysis (PCA) revealed significant metabolic changes in the rats' plasma after CUMS treatment. Clear separation between the model and control group was achieved, and the level of twelve metabolites, including amino acids, sugar, organic acids and fatty acids, were significantly different between plasma samples from the controls and CUMS group. These observations suggested that the depressed state may be associated with perturbation of amino acid metabolism, energy metabolism and glycometabolism. The study suggested that the metabolomics approach could be used as a potential powerful tool to investigate the biochemical change in certain physiopathological conditions, such as depression, as an early diagnostic means.
