Tools for Advancing your Metabolic Research

Metabolism refers to a set of chemical reactions which are responsible for transforming carbohydrates, lipids and proteins into energy. These biochemical processes are essential for maintaining homeostasis. Metabolic research focuses on better understanding basic biological mechanisms that regulate metabolism and how they are dysregulated in disorders such as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. A common root cause in these medical conditions is an energy imbalance; better understanding of this disparity will help determine therapeutic strategies. Even though metabolism involves sequences of complex biochemical reactions, Enzo Life Sciences provides simple and novel solutions to advance your metabolic research.


Discover, Analyse & Quantify Metabolic Biomarkers


Adiponectin is a protein hormone primarily produced by adipocytes which circulates at high levels (5-30 mg/L) in the blood. Adiponectin modulates a number of metabolic processes and is known to contribute to metabolic pathologies including diabetes, atherosclerosis, and obesity. It has been shown to increase insulin sensitivity and decrease plasma glucose by increasing tissue fat oxidation.

Obesity is associated with a low-grade inflammation of white adipose tissue (WAT) resulting from chronic activation of the innate immune system. Downstream, this can lead to insulin resistance, impaired glucose tolerance and even diabetes. Understanding the mechanisms leading to disease will help in developing new approaches to its treatment and prevention.


GLP and Exendin

GLP (glucagon-like peptide) functions in the regulation of blood glucose through insulin, and plays a role in obesity and diabetes. GLP-1 is an important gastrointestinal peptide hormone or incretin, which is released when we eat, produced by tissue specific post-translational processing from a glucagon precursor, and inactivated by dipeptidylpeptidase DPP-4 enzymes. Exendin-4 is a 39 amino-acid peptide found in venom from the Gila monster. It is a member of the glucagon-secretin family of peptide hormones and neuropeptides. As an agonist of the GLP-1 receptor, Exendin-4 is a potent stimulator of insulin secretion and has a much longer half life than GLP-1 (~2 minutes) making it a suitable drug candidate for the treatment of obesity and type-2 diabetes.

Lipocalin-2, Neutrophil Gelatinase-associated Lipocalin (NGAL)

NGAL (also known as Lipocalin-2 or Neutrophil Gelatinase-associated Lipocalin) is a small, ~25kDa secreted protein expressed in epithelial tissues and released into both urine and blood upon kidney tubular damage. The protein is protease resistant and over-expressed during inflammation, infection and certain cancers. During acute renal failure (ARF) caused by either ischemia or nephrotoxicity, NGAL is secreted in high levels into blood and urine within 2 hours or less of injury to the kidney. NGAL is also released at the time of acute kidney injury (AKI) unlike serum creatinine, another kidney diagnostic biomarker which may not be seen until 72 hours after injury when up to 50% of renal function may have been lost.

Adipose tissue contains differentiated cells called adipocytes that are specialized in storing fat. In addition to their function in controlling energy homeostasis, adipocytes release endocrine and paracrine signaling molecules called adipokines that are important in many physiological and metabolic processes. Some adipokines such as adiponectin, omentin, Nampt (Visfatin/PBEF), resistin or RBP4 are involved in insulin signaling. Others regulate food intake and lipid metabolism (e.g. leptin, chemerin).

Sphingolipid Metabolism

Sphingolipids are a versatile class of membrane lipid. Sphingolipid metabolites, such as ceramide, sphingosine, and sphingosine-1-phospate are lipid signaling molecules which are involved in diverse cellular processes. Sphingosine can be phosphorylated in vivo via two kinases, sphingosine kinase type 1 and sphingosine kinase type 2, leading to the formation of sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P). Sphingosine-1-phosphate is a potent signaling lipid involved in numerous biological functions including, cellular proliferation, survival, migration, invasion, differentiation, architecture, immune cell trafficking, angiogenesis and vascular integrity.

Mitochondria, the organelles that generate energy for the cell, have a critical role in the function of a cell. Mitochondrial disease, stemming from dysfunction, can have various effects on the body with conditions ranging from epilepsy, psychiatric illness and autism, to cardiovascular disease, liver/kidney disease, diabetes and cancer. The impact of mitochondria in so many diseases makes them ideal targets for new therapeutics.
