A term 'metabolism' is used to describe chemical reactions in the cells and the organisms, which convert various substances to energy in order to maintain living state. Metabolism is conveniently divided into two categories, catabolism and anabolism. Catabolism is the breakdown of molecules to obtain energy and anabolism is the synthesis of molecules with energy. These metabolic molecules are indispensable to sustain life. Therefore, investigating metabolic pathways is not only of great significance to understand physiological processes but also to treat diseases such as cancer, in which metabolism is different from normal cells. Metabolism antibodies are very important tools in these research processes.
Fig.1 Schematic overview over the main metabolic hubs.
Metabolism antibody includes protein metabolism antibody, glucose metabolism antibody and liquid metabolism antibody. These antibodies are vital for understanding the homeostatic process of metabolic pathways and numerous diseases resulting from metabolic errors such as obesity, diabetes, lipidemia, hepatic lipidosis, etc.
