July has been a great month. Three new publications with Lipotype Shotgun Lipidomics technology have been put out, and the Lipidomics Resource Center received its first major update. Read more about this!
Do fruit flies suffer from Parkinson’s? Not exactly. But patients who suffer from this neurological disease experience disturbed sleep patterns long before motor dysfunctions. This can be modelled in fruit flies. Researchers from the Netherlands and Germany showed that excessive contacts between mitochondria and endoplasmic reticulum in Parkinson’s flies lead to abnormal lipid trafficking. This prevents the release of “sleep” neuropeptides, which affects sleep patterns.
Lipotype put online a new skin lipidomics customer reference with Lipoid about lipid analysis for skin penetration properties of saturated phospholipids.
Lipotype published a German article about lipidomics in the LABO magazine.
With great research comes great science
We strive for scientific excellence. But all science on earth is just as good, as the research which precedes it. Which is why we have been discussing solutions to provide better access to lipidomics publications – for free, to everybody.
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a multi-drug resistant bacteria, and can cause serious illnesses such as pneumonia or sepsis syndromes. The publication from TU Braunschweig shows that, when grown under unaerobic biofilm conditions, the bacterium produces less of a protein, which binds specifically to the central hub of phospholipid metabolism.
Kai Simons, founder and CEO of Lipotype, has been following the development of omic science for decades. His lifelong experience as well as his proficiency in lipids and lipidomics has led him to a detailed review.
Lipotype published in SOFW Journal about skin lipidomics to better understand skin aging
Lipidomics is the large-scale investigation of lipids in biological systems. Venturing into the analysis of large dataset, with potential thousands of lipidomes, by advanced multiparametric statistical approaches is a challenging endeavour.
