Most naturally occurred fats contain a complex mixture of different individual triacylglycerol. A triacylglycerol (triglyceride, TAG) is an ester derived from glycerol and three fatty acid molecules.
Natural fatty acids found in plants and animals are usually composed of only even numbers of carbon atoms, due to their biosynthesis from the two-carbon building-block acetyl CoA. Bacteria have the ability to synthesize odd-chain and branched-chain fatty acids.
In humans, increased level of TAGs has been shown to be associated with a variety of diseases, including atherosclerosis, heart disease, stroke and metabolic syndrome.
Creative Proteomics is based on a highly stable, reproducible and highly sensitive separation, characterization and quantitative analysis system, combined with LC-MS to provide reliable, fast and cost-effective triglyceride analysis service.
LC–MS platform enables detection of multiple TAGs in the TAG family. The results are widely used for investigating the relative changes in TAG concentrations, mechanistic studies and biomarker discovery.
Fig 1. The workflow of triacylglycerol analysis service.
We accept a variety of sample types, including cells, conditioned media, subcellular compartments, exosomes, tissues, blood, plasma, plants and microorganisms.
We have rich experience in plant triacylglycerol analysis, from the commonly used model plant arabidopsis to the main food crops rice, wheat and soybeans.
After sample collection, you can either perform sample pretreatment, or contact us for specific sample pretreatment service.
If you have any questions about our triacylglycerol analysis service, please contact us.
