Fatty Acid Biosynthesis Service

Online Inquiry

Fatty acid synthesis is the generation of fatty acids from acetyl-CoA through the action of enzymes called fatty acid synthases. This process takes place in the cytoplasm. Most of the acetyl-CoA for synthesizing fatty acids is from carbohydrates via the glycolytic pathway. The glycolytic pathway also provides the glycerol with which three fatty acids can combine to form triglycerides. When only two fatty acids combine with glycerol and the third alcohol group is phosphorylated with a group like phosphatidylcholine, a phospholipid is formed. Phospholipids form the lipid bilayers which consist of cell membranes and surround the organelles within the cells. It would not be surprising that fatty acid synthesis plays an important role in maintaining the function of cell and organelles. This cycle of eight different enzymes.  Its abnormal among these enzymes closely links to various human diseases like combined malonic and methylmalonic aciduria and leukodystrophy. In Creative Proteomics, we provide reliable, rapid and cost-effective fatty acid synthesis related service to speed up your research aims ranging from diseases diagnosis to gaining new insights in disease mechanism or treatment.
