Triglyceride Analysis Service

    Triacylglycerols (TAGs) are esters derived from a glycerol and three fatty acid molecules. The simplest TAGs are those with three identical fatty acids. The length of the fatty acids of TAGs can range from C4 to C24 carbons, but the most common are C16, C18, and C20. Fatty acids can be saturated or unsaturated. Natural fatty acids found in plants and animals typically consist of even numbers of carbon atoms because they are biosynthesized from acetyl-CoA with two-carbon units. Bacteria have the ability to synthesize fatty acids with odd-numbered carbon.


    Most natural fats contain different TAGs. In the intestine, TAGs are broken down into monoacylglycerols and free fatty acids during lipolysis. The liver is the primary organ for the synthesis and storage of TAGs. When the body requires fatty acids as an energy source, the glucagon triggers the breakdown of glycerides through hormone-sensitive lipase, releasing free fatty acids to provide energy for the body. Since the brain cannot directly utilize fatty acids, the glycerol part of TAGs needs to be converted to glucose via gluconeogenesis to serve as fuel for the brain. Elevated levels of human TAGs have been shown to be associated with various diseases, including atherosclerosis, heart disease, stroke, and metabolic syndrome. However, the exact negative effects of elevated TAGs are not well understood.


    MtoZ Biolabs provides reliable, rapid, and cost-effective TAGs analysis services based on high stability, reproducibility, and high sensitivity separation, characterization, identification, and quantification systems combined with LC-MS.
