About Nicotinic Acid
Nicotinic acid belongs to the vitamin B family, also known as niacin, vitamin B3, and anti-dermatosis factor, and its chemical name is pyridine-3-carboxylic acid.
Nicotinic acid is mainly found in animal internal organs, muscle tissue, fruits, and egg yolks. It is one of the 13 essential vitamins for the human body.
At present, nicotinic acid is mainly used in feed additives and pharmaceutical intermediates.
Its chemical formula is C6H5NO2, and CAS number is 59-67-6.
MS-based technical means can realize the qualitative and quantitative analysis of nicotinic acid.
Molecular structure of nicotinic acid
Technical Route of Targeted Metabolomics of Nicotinic Acid
|Plants, yeasts, microorganisms, etc. |
Serum, plasma, urine, bile, bile acid, etc.
Cells, liver, brain tissue and other animal tissues and feces, etc.
There is no restriction on plant varieties. For varieties with special requirements or rare varieties, please contact our staff for more information.
|Plant root / stem / leaf / fruit / seed > 200 mg fresh weight, freeze-dried sample > 0.5 g |
Cells / microorganisms / cell supernatant / culture medium supernatant: the number of cells or bacteria > 107, supernatant > 2 ml
Serum / plasma / urine / ruminal fluid / cerebrospinal fluid / amniotic fluid and other homogeneous liquid samples > 200 µl.
(Hemolysis should be avoided. Cerebrospinal fluid can be as low as 100 µl.)
Animal tissue / feces related samples > 200 mg / sample
For other sample types, please consult technical support or sales.
|Sample mixed and repeat|
|In order to ensure the accuracy of the samples and reduce systematic errors during sampling, it is necessary to select more than 3 materials with the same condition for each sample. |
※ The same condition refers to the same period, basically the same phenotype, and the same part.
It is recommended that prepare more than 6 biological replicates.
|Storage and transportation|
|Quick-frozen preservation with liquid nitrogen can minimize the leakage time of plant samples at room temperature, and store it at -80°C. |
Dry ice transportation (about 3~4 kg dry ice is consumed every day, please use sufficient dry ice for transportation).
