Stable isotope-labeled compounds are used as environmental pollutant standards for the detection of air, water, soil, sediment and food.
In addition to treating various diseases, isotopes are used for imaging, diagnosis, and newborn screening.
Small molecule compounds labeled with stable isotopes can be used as chemical reference for chemical identification, qualitative, quantitative, detection, etc. Various types of NMR solvents can be used to study the structure, reaction mechanism and reaction kinetics of compounds.
Stable isotope labeling allows researchers to study metabolic pathways in vivo in a safe manner.
BOC Sciences is committed to providing customers with the most comprehensive variety of isotope-labeled amino acids available. We provide products such as essential amino acids and derivatives, including lysine, phenylalanine, methionine, etc., as well as non-essential amino acids and derivatives, including tyrosine, alanine, serine, glutamic acid, etc.
Amino acids are organic compounds containing basic amino groups and acidic carboxyl groups and formed by replacing the hydrogen atoms of carboxylic acids with amino groups. Amino acids are important constituents of organisms, reserve irreplaceable biological functions, and play essential roles in metabolic cycles. In addition to being the basic building materials of proteins, amino acids can also be the precursors of many other biomolecules (such as cytosine, adenine, epinephrine, etc.). At the same time, amino acids are widely used in medicine, food, cosmetics, and other fields.
Isotope-labeled amino acids refer to the replacement of single or multiple atoms of the amino acid with isotopes, which can be radioactive isotopes or stable isotopes. Basically, isotope-labeled amino acids have identical structures and properties as non-labeled amino acids. The trends of isotopes-labeled amino acids can be observed by analytical methods such as mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance. Therefore, isotope-labeled amino acids serve as safe, effective, and convenient tracer tools for scientific research in medicine, biology, pharmacy, chemistry, etc.
