The Analytical Core conducts all assays involving the determination of isotope labeling and concentration profiles
of metabolites including:
H-labeling of water, lipids and amino acids
O-labeling of water
the concentration profile of acyl-CoAs (e.g. short
metabolic profiles of citric acid cycle intermediates, amino acids and fatty acids
Dr. Puchowicz and her team work out the terms of the contract, help the users understand the nature of the assays, coordinate the planning studies done off-site and the collection and shipment of samples for analyses. The Analytic Core has a close interaction with the Metabolic Core
to perform measurements of glucose, glycerol and/or amino acid turnover that are done in catheterized mice under basal and/or glucose-insulin clamp conditions.to prepare the scientific reports to users and the billing for the services.
