Fatty acyls are carboxylic acids formed by a hydrocarbon chain and a terminal carboxyl group. They are synthesized by chain elongation of acetyl-CoA with malonyl-CoA groups by enzymes named elongases.
Fatty acyls are not only energy sources, but also the building blocks of complex lipids and as such form a key category of metabolites. Additionally, they are membrane constituents and regulate intracellular signaling, transcription factors, gene expression, bioactive lipid production, and inflammation.
Creative Proteomics provides comprehensive fatty acyls targeted lipidomics services from lipid extraction, lipid detection and data analysis for biomedical research institutions, biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies.
Creative Proteomics use gas/liquid chromatography hyphenated to triple quadrupole mass spectrometers for fatty acyls targeted lipidomics.

We can accept a variety of sample types, including cells, tissues, blood, plasma, skin, urine, feces, plants, microorganisms, et al.
Extraction of lipids should be performed right after sample collection steps, otherwise, samples should be stored at -80°C, and shipped with dry ice. After sample collection, you can either perform sample pretreatment, or contact us for specific sample pretreatment service.
If you have any questions about our fatty acyls targeted lipidomics services, please contact us.
