We leverage our rich experience, professional expertise, and advanced technologies to speed up your scientific purposes of alpha-linolenic acid metabolism analysis in animal.


Alpha-linolenic acid is a type of omega-3 fatty acid found in many common vegetable oils. Alpha-linolenic acid is one of two essential fatty acids, which animals have to ingest from diet, as the body requires them for tissue function but cannot synthesize them by themselves. Structurally, alpha-linolenic acid comprises an 18-carbon chain and three cis double bonds at positions 9, 12 and 15 from the methyl group. Functionally, alpha-linolenic acid is the substrate for the synthesis of longer-chain, more unsaturated n-3 fatty acids like eicosapentaenoic acid (20:5n-3) and docosahexaenoic acid (22:6n-3). Therefore, alpha-linolenic acid plays an important role in nutrition and health and its abnormal metabolism cause various human pathologies like cardiovascular disease and cancer. Scientists at Creative Proteomics take advantage of highly quantitative methods with high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) for the determination of alpha-linolenic acid levels in various samples. Furthermore, we provide reliable, rapid and cost-effective alpha-linolenic acid related service to speed up your research aims ranging from diseases diagnosis to gaining new insights in disease mechanism or treatment.
