C. elegans Metabolism Analysis Service

Metabolism analysis of C. elegans focuses on the metabolism of sugars, lipids, and amino acids, which are often involved in their metabolic pathways, energy production, nutrient utilization, and other related processes. As a leading custom service provider, CD BioSciences has experienced scientists and well-equipped facilities. Here, we offer a wide range of metabolism analysis services for C. elegans to help our clients advance their research.

Technologies for Metabolism Analysis of C. elegans

  • Metabolomics: As analytical methods focused on the analysis and identification of small molecules (metabolites) in an organism, providing insight into metabolic pathways. Techniques such as mass spectrometry (MS) and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy are commonly used to detect and quantify metabolites.
  • Respirometry: Respirometry is a technique used to measure the oxygen consumption and carbon dioxide production of an organism. This method allows monitoring the respiration rate of C. elegans under different conditions and helps researchers to understand the energy metabolism and mitochondrial function of the organism, providing information about the energy metabolism and mitochondrial function of C. elegans during sugar, lipid, and amino acid utilization.
  • Isotope Tracking: Tracking the binding of an isotope-labeled nutrient in different metabolic pathways after feeding C. elegans with that isotope helps researchers investigate the utilization and flow of specific nutrients in the organism.
  • Biochemical Assays: A variety of biochemical tests can be used to measure the activity of specific enzymes involved in sugar, lipid, and amino acid metabolism in nematodes.
