Minute™ Nuclei and Cytosol Isolation Kit for Adipose Tissues
Adipocytes are the major energy storage sites in the body and they also have critical endocrine functions. Therefore, understanding the development and function of adipocytes are essential to understanding metabolic homeostasis under physiological and pathological conditions. Fractionation of cellular components into nucleus and cytosolic fraction is a common practice in the lab. However, when it comes to adipocytes, separation of these two fractions are much more difficult than other tissues because of high concentration of lipid droplet and low protein content of adipocytes. Methods reported in the literature for isolation of nuclei and cytosolic fraction from adipose tissues are tedious and time consuming and as much as 50 grams of tissue are required. This kit provides a very rapid and simple method for obtaining high purity nuclei from adipose tissues and most important of all, only milligram amounts of tissues are required making it possible to isolate nuclei and cytosol from small animal and biopsy.
