Carbohydrate metabolites are one of major nutrients. They are found everywhere in living systems and play crucial roles in a wide variety of biological processes. Their best-known functions are as energy resources, as well as builders of structural bio-scaffoldings in animal cells and a backbone element in the RNA and DNA genetic molecules1. However, their biological activities are more diverse. Carbohydrates are key players in cell signalling, molecular recognition, immunity and inflamation2. Therefore, carbohydrates abnormal is closely associated to various pathologies like heart diseases and diabetes. Carbohydrate metabolism refers to as the various biochemical processes responsible for the formation, breakdown and interconversion of carbohydrates in living organisms. The carbohydrate metabolism provides a versatile tool to assess medical risks, identify novel biomarkers and gain insight to molecular mechanisms of disease by analysing hundreds of carbohydrate metabolites in individual’s samples. The carbohydrate metabolism analysis has been applied in a wide range of fields including biomarker discovery, human disease research, clinical diagnostics, drug discovery, food safety, nutrition and systems biology. With integrated array of separation, characterization, identification and quantification experience, Creative Proteomics provides reliable, rapid and cost-effective carbohydrate metabolism services for your various scientific purposes.
