Metabolism

The metabolism of dietary nutrients is regulated to balance the production of life-sustaining molecules and the maintenance of energy stores. Dysregulation of this balance is a dominant feature of type 2 diabetes, obesity, and metabolic syndrome. Bio-Techne provides an outstanding selection of high-quality reagents and assays for metabolism research. We offer antibodies, bioactive proteins, small molecules, and immunoassays for studying lipid metabolism, glucose homeostasis, and energy balance.
