Metabolic fluxomics, located at the most downstream of systems biology, is a collection of cellular metabolic reaction rates, reflecting the comprehensive effects of gene-protein-metabolite interactions on metabolic networks . The tricarboxylic acid cycle occurs in the mitochondria, and its main function is to generate reducing equivalents. At the same time, the TCA cycle is also the hub of the metabolic link between glucose, fat, and amino acids. Therefore, the metabolic flux analysis of the TCA cycle can comprehensively understand the carbon source of the TCA cycle in cancer cells and the state of the TCA cycle in cancer cells in different states. CD BioSciences uses isotope tracing combined with nuclear magnetic resonance or mass spectrometry to perform metabolic flux analysis of the TCA cycle based on the MOPCGM platform.
We are able to systematically quantify the flux distribution of metabolic networks within cells or tissues and the relative contribution of each metabolite to the TCA cycle pathway by isotope labeling combined with nuclear magnetic resonance or mass spectrometry. We provide steady-state TCA cycle metabolic flux analysis and non-steady-state TCA cycle flux analysis. Among them, steady-state TCA cycle flux analysis has an independent marker collection mode, which takes a long time. Non-steady-state TCA cycle flux analysis takes less time but requires more time points to be analyzed. You can choose according to your needs.
For TCA cycle flux analysis, the labeling methods we can provide are as follows:
The TCA cycle metabolites we are able to use [U-13C]-Glucose labeled are as follows, including but not limited to:
The TCA cycle metabolites we are able to use [U-13C]-Glutamine labeled are as follows, including but not limited to:
