- Lipid Accumulation
The Adipogenesis Assay kits provide the tools to study the compounds that stimulate cultured human adipocyte differentiation or lipogenesis.
Our lipolysis assay kits provide the tool to study chemical compounds that may influence lipolysis in cultured human or 3T3-L1 adipocytes. Kits are available with and without a plate of cells. Kits can measure the glycerol and/or free fatty acids released in lipolysis.
- Protein Expression
Adipocytes (fat cells) express a variety of proteins that function in the homeostatic control of glucose and lipid metabolism. Insulin regulates the translocation and secretion of many of these proteins in response...
- Serum / Plasma Fatty Acid & Glycerol Detection Kits
ZenBio offers kits to analyze the levels of NEFA, glycerol, or both in human and animal serum or plasma. The kits are designed for use in a 96-well format and 1 to 10 l of sample Through a two step addition process, the level of NEFA can be quantified relative to a standard curve
