Progress to understanding in vivo metabolomics: C13 Isotope studies.
One key to understanding cellular metabolomics lies in the ability to accurately determine the specific metabolic pathways that are employed. Steady state metabolomics is an easy way to initially understand the metabolic needs of specific cell lines and gene mutations.
C13 isotope analyses are a very useful tool for following the fates of nutrients inside the cell. In vitro experiments are easy to perform and can yield valuable insights. The push towards in vivo C13 labeling will allow researchers to confirm the cells preferred metabolic pathways and better understand druggable targets.
HMT is committed to providing our unique C13 analyses for cultured cells, as well as, in the in vivo setting.
