13C Kinetic Labeling and Extraction of Metabolites from Adherent Mammalian Cells
Authors:  Parul Mehrotra, Najmuddin Saquib and Kanury V. S. Rao, date: 04/20/2015, view: 4892, Q&A: 0
Fluctuations in metabolite levels in mammalian cells are the most direct form of readout of the cellular metabolic state. The current protocol describes a method for pulse labeling and subsequent isolation of metabolites from adherent mammalian ...
