Fluorescent Standards

Matreya has developed fluorescent standards that can be detected in cultures and in biological systems, making them ideal for studies involving the metabolism of sphingolipids. These lipid analogs are very useful for determining the localization of various sphingolipids in membranes and organelles.(1) The NBD fluorescent group attached to hexanoic acid has been shown to be readily taken up by cells and used in the biosynthesis of more complex sphingolipids.(2)
