CD BioGlyco Announced Release of Comprehensive Fatty Acid Analy

  • CD BioGlyco, a biotechnology company that is committed to discovering, developing, manufacturing and providing innovative glycobiology-related high quality products and services, recently announced the release of comprehensive fatty acid analysis services.


    Fatty acids (FA) are a class of compounds consisting of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. They are major components of neutral fats, phospholipids, and glycolipids. They can be divided into different categories depending on their carbon chain length or whether they contain unsaturated bonds. FAs in cells arise from either the exogenous or de novo synthesis pathways.


    The presence of a large number of heterogeneous compounds, most of which contain FAs in their structure, makes these compounds a suitable tool for examining processes from the cell to the macroscopic level of the tissue. FAs function as part of a molecule or individually and have multiple functions in the cell. They have structural functions as phospholipid components, while phospholipids are blocks of cell membranes. As part of neutral lipids, FAs can act as intracellular storage substances, and FA derivatives have been implicated in cellular signal transduction. FAs metabolism is important in many research fields, including biology, ecology, bacteriology, human nutrition and health. Specific FAs and their proportion in the cell membrane can be used as biomarkers to study the adaptability of bacterial cells to toxic compounds and environmental conditions and to reveal links between food webs.


    At CD BioGlyco, they uses the following methods to analyze fatty acids:

    Total fatty acid analysis

    N- and O-linked fatty acid analysis


    According to their official speaker, the services can be applied to research on the structure and function of fatty acids, cell membrane composition research, human health and nutrition research, food web related research, and food industry.


    “We have accumulated abundant experience in fatty acid analysis. Our comprehensive services and powerful data analysis have won a lot of praise among our customers. We are confident to be your essential research assistant in the field of glycobiology.” Commented one of the representative speakers from CD BioGlyco.
