Cofactors and Vitamins Analysis Service
A cofactor is a kind of nonprotein chemical compound that maintains various enzymes' proper functioning. There are two types of cofactors: inorganic ions [e.g., Calcium or Magnesium ions] and organic molecules. Most cofactors are vitamins or are derived from vitamins. Vitamins are organic compounds that are essential in very small amounts for the maintenance of normal function in animals. They normally cannot be synthesized at adequate levels by the body and have to be obtained from the diet. cofactors play an important role in the metabolism of all organisms as reflected by the wide variety of chemical reactions in which they participate. Manipulation in use of cofactors is critical in metabolic engineering. In this process, the concentrations of cofactors are changed in order to maximize or minimize metabolic fluxes. It can be used to optimize the production of metabolite products to increase the efficiency of metabolic networks. Their abnormalities are closely associated to various human pathologies like diabetes and cancer. Scientists at Creative Proteomics take advantage of highly quantitative methods with high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) for the determination of metabolism of cofactors and vitamins metabolism related metabolites levels in various samples. Furthermore, we provide reliable, rapid and cost-effective metabolism of cofactors and vitamins related service to speed up your research aims ranging from diseases diagnosis to gaining new insights in disease mechanism or treatment.
