Measuring Metabolic Engines and Fuels-Seahorse Users Meeting 18.5.17

Agilent Seahorse meeting

Metabolism is the key to understanding cell function

In living cells, most of the energy produced is derived from three fuel sources: glucose, glutamine, and fatty acids. Mitochondrial access to these fuels impacts a wide variety of biological processes.

Use the Agilent Seahorse XF Analyzer to:
• Identify fuel dependencies to uncover cancer cell vulnerabilities.
• Explore how fuel preferences lead to cell fate decisions for differentiation and immune cell activation.
• Determine whether/how cells can adjust fuel oxidation to match nutrient availability while meeting energy demand.
• Distinguish metabolic adaptations due to genetic changes vs. those that take place due to nutrient deprivation.
