MitoXpress FAO Assay

MitoXpress® FAO Assay

Luxcel Biosciences’ MitoXpress® Xtra FAO Assay, the only 96- 384-well format kit of its kind, is designed for use as a companion kit to the MitoXpress® Xtra Oxygen Consumption Assay kit and contains additional components needed for the convenient measurement of basal and maximum FAO-driven energy generation. In addition, the kit allows for the distinction between utilization of exogenous and endogenous long chain fatty acids.

Fatty acid oxidation (FAO)

Fatty acid oxidation (FAO) is the primary metabolic pathway in a variety of tissues. In organs such as liver and skeletal muscle, FAO can provide over 75% of cellular ATP while in cardiac tissue it can be responsible for up to 90% of cellular energy requirements. FAO is also now acknowledged as a key factor in cancer metabolism and is also implicated in drug-induced microsteatosis.
