Lipolysis Kits

  • Cultured Human Adipocyte Lipolysis Assay Kit - Glycerol (Colorimetric) (LIP-1) (pdf)
    Lipolysis plays a central role in the regulation of energy balance. Lipolysis is the process in which triglycerides (TG) are hydrolyzed into glycerol and free fatty acids. This process releases free fatty acids (FFA) into the bloodstream where they may be either re-esterified by the adipocyte or travel to other tissues and exert other effects throughout the body. Elevated adipocyte lipolysis has been observed in obese and diabetic individuals (Arner 1996). Excessive free fatty acid production is believed to contribute to insulin resistance in skeletal muscle that is observed in obesity. Hormone sensitive lipase is the rate-limiting enzyme catalyzing triglyceride breakdown. Perilipins, one of the PAT (perilipins, adipophilin, TIP47 proteins) family of lipid-associated proteins, are implicated in adipocyte lipolysis by mediating the interaction of HSL with the triacylglycerol molecule (Brasaemle et al. 2004; reviewed in, Tansey et al. 2004.) The presence of these proteins corresponds to lipolytic stimulation in cultured adipocytes (Braemle et al. 2004).

    FAT AS YOUR FRIEND. The increased demand for anti-aging treatments has ranged from natural botanicals, cosmetics to surgical intervention (Majeed & Prakash 2002). In the battle against the appearance of aging, fat is the friend, not the foe. In addition to the treatment of facial wrinkles, the transfer of one's own fat can be used to treat indented acne scars, fill out the back of the hands and correct skin depressions (Christensen et al. 2005).
  • ABTS Antioxidant Assay Kit (AOX-1) (pdf)
    Free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS) are highly reactive molecules that are generated by normal cellular processes, environmental stresses, and UV irradiation. ROS react with cellular components, damaging DNA, carbohydrates, proteins, and lipids causing cellular and tissue injury. Excess production of reactive oxygen species can also lead to inflammation, premature aging disorders, and several disease states, including cancer, diabetes, and atherosclerosis. Organisms have developed complex antioxidant systems to protect themselves from oxidative stress, however, excess ROS can overwhelm the systems and cause severe damage.
