Targeted Metabolomics Fatty Acids

Targeted differential expression metabolomics characterizes the changes in the metabolome as a function of biological challenges. These experiments can be hypothesis generating or hypothesis testing. Fatty acid sources include triglycerides and phospholipids. Fatty acids are important fuel source because their metabolism provides larges quantities of ATP. Many cell types can use either glucose or fatty acids for this purpose. This fatty acid panel quantitates 18 fatty acids.
