General description

Fatty acids are critical for many biological processes including energy metabolism and the synthesis of structural cellular components. The facilitated uptake of fatty acids, presumably through fatty acid transport proteins, is thought to be regulated at multiple levels. The dysregulation of fatty acid uptake may contribute to diseases such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, and hepatic steatosis.

Suitability

This kit is suitable for the measurement of fatty acid uptake in cells containing fatty acid transporters

Principle

This kit is provides a simple and sensitive method for the measurement of fatty acid uptake in cells containing fatty acid transporters. This kit uses a proprietary dodecanoic acid fluorescent fatty acid substrate whose uptake into cells result in an increase in fluorescence intensity (λex = 485/λem = 515 nm).

Storage Class Code
