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 isotope-labeled steroids. We offer a complete range of labeled steroids standards, and the related products we provide include cholesterol, lanosterol, sitosterol, glucocorticoids, mineralocorticoids, sex hormones, etc.
Steroids are a general term for a large class of cyclopentane-fused perhydrophenanthrene derivatives widely distributed biologically. Steroids are commonly used in research for biology, medicine, pharmacy, and other fields due to their various physiological functions.
Cholesterol is a crucial component of animal cells. Cholesterol is not only a precursor for synthesizing steroid compounds but is also involved in the formation of cell membranes. An appropriate amount of cholesterol is of great significance to maintaining the normal physiological functions of the human body. Cholesterol esters are esterification products of cholesterol and are the storage and transport form of cholesterol.
Sitosterol is a crucial component of plant cells and has the function of lowering cholesterol and preventing atherosclerosis.
Glucocorticoids mainly include cortisol and a small amount of corticosterone, which have a strong regulatory effect on blood sugar and various physiological functions, such as anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, and anti-viral.
Mineralocorticoids have strong regulatory effects on water-salt balance, which mainly include aldosterone and deoxycorticosterone.
Sex hormones include androgens, estrogens, and progestins. Sex hormones play an important role in the growth and development of the body, as well as the growth and maturation of secondary sexual characteristics.
Isotope labeling techniques are widely used in the study of steroid metabolism. Using isotope-labeled steroids as internal standards, quantitative detection of steroids and metabolites can be achieved. This method upregulates the sensitivity and accuracy of quantitative detection of steroids and assists in disease monitoring, diagnosis, and treatment.
