Based on Luminex technology platform, Creative Proteomics provides analysis services for key targets of omentin signaling pathway.
(Rao S S, et al., 2018)Omentin protein is a recently discovered new adipocytokine produced mainly by secretions from visceral adipose tissue. In recent years, it has been found that omentin protein has the functions of enhancing insulin sensitivity, anti-atherosclerosis, reducing inflammatory response, regulating vascular endothelial cell function, and cardiovascular protection, and is closely related to various clinical diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, autoimmune diseases, and tumors. Therefore, it is particularly important to study the signaling pathways of omentin protein.
Omentin has an anti-atherogenic effect. Omentin induces NO synthesis and increases endothelial function by activating AMPK-eNOS phosphorylation. Omentin inhibits a variety of TNF-α-mediated signaling pathways, down-regulates the expression of vascular adhesion molecules, reduces the production of reactive oxygen species, and decreases the infiltration of inflammatory cells into the vessel wall, thus exerting anti-inflammatory and anti-atherosclerotic effects.
Omentin is widely involved in the regulation of obesity, insulin resistance, inflammatory response, atherosclerosis and vascular endothelial function. In mouse ischemia-reperfusion models and in vitro cultured cardiomyocytes, omentin was shown to reduce myocardial infarct size and apoptosis and protect myocardium from ischemic injury by enhancing phosphorylation of AMPK and Akt.
We provide Luminex technology for omentin signaling pathway analysis.
Luminex technology is a multifunctional liquid phase analysis platform, which is developed on the basis of high-speed digital signal processing technology, colored microspheres, applied fluidics and laser technology. The core is the use of fluorescent dyes for encoding. By adjusting the different ratios of different fluorescent dyes, more than 100 microspheres with different fluorescence spectra were obtained. The reactions are carried out on microspheres with different fluorescent codes, such as nucleic acid hybridization, antigen-antibody, enzyme-substrate, ligand-receptor binding reactions. Using laser detection technology, qualitative and quantitative analysis of microsphere encoding and reporting fluorescence.
Creative Proteomics has developed a signaling pathway target detection platform. We can provide detection services not only for omentin signaling pathways, but also for other signaling pathways. If you want to detect other targets, please contact us in advance and we will customize the service for you according to your requirements. Looking forward to working with you.
