Metabolomics-based investigation of microbial contribution to fermented food
Soy sauce is one of the most important Japanese fermented seasoning. Its demand has been increasing all over the world in recent years. It is fermented by koji mold (Aspergillus oryzae or Aspergillus sojae), lactic acid bacterium
Measuring small molecules for nutrition research?
Metabolomics is the study of small molecules that are present in biological samples. These small molecules include amino acids, fatty acids, organic acids and sugars, and are referred to as metabolites. These metabolites reflect the downstream activity
Secret of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) hidden in small molecules
Diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are a great challenge for today’s medicine. It also results from not fully explained pathomechanisms underlying their development and progression. The group of CVDs is a very complex mixture of
The GC-MS tutorial to successfully carry out your metabolomics study
The term metabolite is usually restricted to small molecules that are the intermediates and products of metabolism, which represent the result of complex interactions between our genetic inheritance and multiple environmental stimuli. Characterization of the metabolome is a challenging but necessary
