Insights into neuronal cell metabolism using NMR spectroscopy: uridyl diphosphate N-acetyl-glucosamine as a unique metabolic marker.
Making the switch: Compounds 1 and 2 are used as metabolic markers for NMR detection. When neuronal cells switch to a glycolytic state, an uneven distribution of (13) C in the N-acetyl group results, thus giving a mixture of the metabolites 1 and 2. It is therefore possible to monitor flux through different metabolic pathways, such as glycolysis, the tricarboxylic acid cycle, and the hexosamine biosynthetic pathway, using a single molecule.
