Report 2.0: What’s new

Posted by Alexandros Chatgilialoglu under Blog | 0 Comments

Remembrane has recently upgraded its Report analysis service.

Wondering what’s new?

First of all, we increased the number of fatty acids analyzed from 16 to 40. This number represents almost the totality of fatty acids in mammalian cell membrane network, which leads Report to be one of the most worldwide comprehensive services in the field.

The new list includes some fatty acids that are generally absent or present in minimal quantities, to the point that they can be disregarded even by more specific subject studies. Nevertheless, today cell biology is opening new horizons that were unthinkable just few years ago. This is why it may be inappropriate not to consider analyzing such molecules in still new and less investigated fields.   

We doubled the number of analyzed trans fatty acids, being the radical chemistry more and more intertwined with the biology of macromolecules, and a lot more is to be examined on the actual effect of this family of fatty acids on cell physiology.

Moreover, some odd-carbon chain fatty acids have been included. This may seem an unusual choice, especially because, in theory, their level in mammalian cells should be equal to zero. Actually, Remembrane database shows that these fatty acids may be occasionally present in cultured cells in low percentages. This is an interesting fact that would deserve more in-depth analysis.     

Lastly, such an expanded vision of the fatty acid metabolism guarantees an improved and more detailed understanding of what goes on not only in the membrane but also in the whole biology of the cell,  given the centrality of most oxidative pathways deriving from the fatty acids.

Enhanced raw data quantity, personalized statistics, ad-hoc lipidomic interpretation, comparison with internationally relevant databases, valuable food for thought and useful advice. 

This is Report 2.0. Our commitment to make your research take wing.
