  • Detect extracellular glycerol as a measure of the triglyceride/fatty acid cycling rate
  • Measure glycerol by a coupled enzymatic reaction system that produces a brilliant purple product
  • Includes a standard curve for accurate quantification of extracellular glycerol

In mammals, triglycerides are constantly synthesized from fatty acids and segregated into cytosolic lipid droplets, mainly in adipocytes, as the major energy storage depot. During fasting, triglycerides stored in adipose tissue and liver are hydrolyzed by hormone-sensitive lipase and adipose triglyceride lipase to produce free fatty acids and glycerol. Cayman’s Cell-Based Assay Kit provides a convenient tool for studying triglycerides/fatty acid cycling and its regulation in adipocytes or hepatocytes. This kit will allow investigators to screen compounds involved in lipid storage and metabolism. Chloroquine is included in the kit as a positive control for screening pharmaceuticals that induce lipid droplet accumulation and free glycerol release from hepatocytes.

Needed but not supplied: Please download the kit booklet to verify if UltraPure Water (Milli-Q or equivalent) or any other components are needed for this assay.
