Drosophila Amino Acids Metabolism Analysis Service

In Drosophila, nutrients such as amino acids travel from the intestine to the hemolymph, where they are then absorbed for protein synthesis and metabolism. Essential amino acids such as tryptophan, phenylalanine and leucine must be obtained from food. In addition to being an essential component of protein synthesis, amino acids are involved in many cellular functions such as membrane activity, enzymes, transport, signaling and gene expression. Amino acids can also act as neurotransmitters, such as glutamate, tryptophan and phenylalanine, which are involved in neurotransmitter synthesis as precursors. Thus, characterization of amino acid metabolic processes is important for the identification of important physiological activities.

With our advanced technology platform and rich experience in Drosophila amino acid research, CD BioSciences provides one-stop Drosophila (any developmental period and tissue samples) amino acid omics analysis services to customers worldwide. We use HPLC, CE, amino acid auto-analyzer, and GC-MS/MS, and platforms for fast and efficient separation of amino acids in samples. Our platform comprehensively includes 42 common amino acids and their metabolites for customized analysis of your samples for targeted quantitative detection.
