Determination of the Glycolysis and Lipogenesis in Culture of Hepatocytes
Authors:  Pierre-Damien Denechaud and Luis Fajas, date: 11/05/2016, view: 1996, Q&A: 0
Metabolic flux analyses are needed to provide insights into metabolic regulation that occurs in cells. The current protocol describes fast and reproducible methods for determining glycolysis and de novo lipogenesis of hepatocytes. Primary ...
