Quantitative Lipidomics Based on DCL™

Background & Overview

Lipids are a heterogeneous group of small hydrophobic or amphiphilic compounds that are directly involved in membrane trafficking, regulating membrane proteins, cellular structure, and creating specific sub-compartments in membranes that contribute to cellular function. Several studies have shown that abnormal lipid metabolism is highly correlated with various diseases. Lipidomics will therefore become an essential toolkit in cellular and molecular medicine.

Quantitative Lipidomics Based on DCL™

BOC Sciences has developed mass spectrometry (MS) and deuterium labeling-based lipid quantification techniques for monitoring quantitative changes in lipids between normal and disease states to understand the pathophysiology and reveal the biology of various diseases associated with lipid metabolism landmark. Our technique not only provides efficient quantitative dynamic range with reasonable accuracy and precision, but is more cost-effective.

Results You Can Trust

Sample processing

  • Optimized sample extraction protocols guided by accepted literature methods
  • Partially metabolized deuterium oxide labeling as a quantitative lipidomics tool to increase coverage of lipid species in quantitative MS
  • Best practices for preparing repeat sets to maintain sample integrity for assessing reproducibility

LC-MS/MS and lipid identification

  • Highly reproducible chromatographic separations for accurate quantification
  • Retention times and accurate masses of rigorously validated true standards of fatty acids are used for lipid identification

Relative lipid quantification

  • The Cartesian coordinate system was used to determine the ratio between unlabeled and D-labeled lipids in mixed samples
  • Design a variety of experiments to test the accuracy and precision of quantitative measurements

Result processing

Timely updates, interactive real-time data review, and strictly confidential comprehensive reporting

The partial deuterium labeling strategy employed by BOC Sciences is more cost-effective for isotopic enrichment in target molecules. Ease of management and low cost make our technique suitable for long-term quantitative analysis of a wider range of biological systems, including plants and mammals. In addition, we were able to D-label various biomolecules such as proteins and carbohydrates, showing that our technique is equally applicable to other quantitative omics studies.
