Description

General description

Lipid droplets (LDs) are dynamic, ubiquitously present lipid-storage organelles, predominantly present in the adipocytes. Triglycerides, neutral lipids, and cholesterol esters stored in LDs are the largest sources of energy. The presence of excess LDs in adipocytes results in obesity and obesity-linked pathologies such as dyslipidemia and diabetes type.

Application

Lipid (Oil Red O) Staining Kit has been used to stain lipids and adipocytes in samples.

Suitability

This kit is suitable for staining neutral lipids in two 96 well plates, two 6 well plates, or four 100 mm culture dishes.

Principle

The Lipid (Oil Red O) Staining Kit is suitable for selective staining and detection of neutral lipids in cultured cells. Hematoxylin included in the kit stains the nuclei of the cells.
