Creative Proteomics has developed a reliable and reproducible method using highly sensitive LC-MS/MS method for the rapid identification and quantification of Sophorolipids (SLs) in yeast, which can satisfy the needs of academic and industrial study in your lab.
Biosurfactants are one promising substance class currently under investigation. Sophorolipids (SLs) are biosurfactants of microbial origin, which show biodegradability, low toxicity, excellent surface-active properties, and biological activities. Sophorolipids, secondary metabolites mainly secreted by non-pathogenic yeasts, are one of the most promising biosurfactants. Structurally, they are composed of a disaccharide sophorose linked by a β-glycosidic bond to a long fatty acid chain. In fermentation broth, SLs are synthesized as a mixture of slightly different molecules with three major points of variation of the lactonization, acetylation pattern, and the fatty acid part (chain length, saturation, and position of hydroxylation). The different structural classes cause wide variation in physicochemical and biological properties. Nowadays, SLs have been reported to apply in fields such as agriculture, food, biomedicine, bioremediation, cosmetics, nanotechnology, and oil.
The combination of MS instrument and liquid chromatography (LC) can effectively separate target lipid molecules from complex samples. Currently, a reliable and reproducible method using highly sensitive LC-MS/MS platform for the identification and quantification of SLs in yeast has been established by the scientists at Creative Proteomics, which can satisfy the needs of academic and industrial study in your lab.
