Phytol Analysis Service
Creative Proteomics' targeted metabolomics services target specific metabolites and pathways of interest, which can accurately monitor dynamic metabolic processes, reveal related metabolic mechanisms and verify potential metabolic biomarkers, to guide your research with reliable and accurate measurement results.
The molecular structure of phytol
Phytol (florasol, phytosol) is a branched chain on the plant chlorophyll molecule, an acyclic diterpene alcohol, composed of four isoprene units, and a lipophilic fatty chain, which determines the fat solubility of chlorophyll.
The chemical formula of phytol is C20H40O.
Its CAS number is 7541-49-3.
Its IUPAC name is (2E,7R,11R)-3,7,11,15-tetramethyl-2-hexadecen-1-ol.
It can be used as a precursor for the manufacture of synthetic forms of vitamin E and vitamin K1.
Plant materials ingested by ruminants will release phytol through intestinal fermentation.
The technical route of targeted metabolomics of phytol
|Cell sample - please centrifuge after sampling, remove the medium, immediately put it in liquid nitrogen, and store it at -80°. |
Tissue sample - please put it in liquid nitrogen immediately after separation and store it at -80°.
|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.
|Sample weight and repeat|
|Samples that have been lyophilized are >0.5g. |
For samples with low water content, such as stems, flowers, seeds, dormant buds, etc., fresh samples >1g.
For samples with middle water content, roots and leaves (especially young leaves), fresh samples >2g.
For samples with water content >90%, if fruit (tomato, watermelon, citrus, etc.), fresh sample >5g.
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. |
Dry ice transportation (about 3~4kg dry ice is consumed every day, please use sufficient dry ice for transportation).
There is no restriction on plant varieties. For varieties with special requirements or rare varieties, please contact our staff for more information.
