More Details
Triglyceride , also known as Triacyltriglyceride or Triacyl-glyceride, is the main constituent in vegetable oil and animal fats. Triglycerides play an important role as energy sources and transporters of dietary fat. In the human body, high levels of triglycerides in the bloodstream have been linked to atherosclerosis, heart disease and pancreatitis. Simple, direct and automation-ready procedures for measuring triglyceride concentrations find wide applications in research and drug discovery. BioAssay Systems triglyceride assay uses a single Working Reagent that combines triglyceride hydrolysis and glycerol determination in one step, in which a dye reagent is oxidized to form a colored product. The color intensity at 570nm is directly proportional to triglyceride concentration in the sample.

1. How to extract triglycerides from tissue?



1. Prepare extraction buffer with 5 vol isopropanol, 2 vol water, 2 vol Triton X-100.

2. In a 1.5 mL Eppendorf tube, add 50 µL/mg tissue of the extraction buffer. Vortex for at least 30 sec.

3. Centrifuge 5 min at 14,000 rpm on a table centrifuge.

4. Remove supernatant, dilute 5× with dH2O and perform triglyceride assay using the ETGA-100 Kit.

2. I want to quantify triglycerides in algae and yeasts. The kit’s datasheet explains to use Triton X-100 to solubilize cells and solid components. Will this also work for Algae and Yeast?



Since yeast and algae have cell walls, Triton X-100 may not be sufficient to solubilize these cells. Sigma Aldrich offers a couple reagents for lysis of yeast and plant cells which should work, although we have not tested if these reagents would interfere with the assay.

Alternatively,you could try using sonication/ mechanical homogenization to disrupt the cells.
