Common Carp - subcellular fraction, Cryopreserved, Pooled

PRIMACYT provides subcellular liver fractions from human and a variety of animals for use in drug development in human and animal health. Also, liver cells and subcellular liver fractions are provided for environmental toxicology studies of herbicide and pesticide metabolism and bioaccumulation studies in birds and fish, like rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) or Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar). S9 fractions and microsomes from species not listed above, e.g., turkey (Meleagris gallopavo), Mallard duck (Anas platyrhynchos) or Japanese quail (Coturnix japonica) can be made available upon request.

    Common Carp - Overview
    Animals like Common Carp have been used in vivo by researchers for decades to assess bioaccumulation, metabolism, and environmental risk of chemicals, including drugs, xenobiotics, herbicides and crop protection products. The increasing economic importance of food production in aquacultures requires the analysis of plant-based ingredients in aquafeeds concerning food-borne mycotoxins.

    Further Application Fields

    Subcellular fractions are suitable for a variety of experiments including

    - Cytochrome P450 Inhibition Studies
    - Metabolite Characterization
    - Metabolic Stability

    S9 subcellular fractions derived from liver contain microsomes and cytosol and express a rich variety of metabolic enzymes for assessing the in vitro metabolism of drug candidates and xenobiotics (Phase I Cytochrome P450 enzymes, Flavin mono-oxygenases (FMO), UGT-glucuronyltransferases (UGT), Carboxylesterases and soluble Phase II proteins like N-acetyltransferase, Sulfotransferases (SULT), and Glutathione-S-Transferases (GST)). They are used to evaluate active pharmaceutical ingredients in human and animal health. Other applications include the environmental and toxicological assessment of agrochemicals and the evaluation of cosmetics and food additives.

    Common Carp - a new in-vitro System

    03 Carp Liver subcellular fractions

    Developing regulatory activities (e.g., REACh) require bioaccumulation to be assessed for thousands of chemicals. On top of this, there is increasing pressure to reduce, refine and replace animal tests. This leads to an urgent need for the evaluation of in vitro systems to provide significant data for the estimation of bioaccumulation of chemicals of all kind in human and animals. We at Primacyt provide these in vitro systems to researchers worldwide.

    Carp liver subcellular fractions have been used in aquatic toxicology to analyze metabolism, bioaccumulation and toxic effects of, e.g., pesticides, pharmaceuticals, flame retardants, surfactants, insecticides, and acaricides.

    Our Offering
    Primacyt now offers cryopreserved carp liver S9 fractions from sexually immature animals. Thereby, we add a new in-vitro model system obtained from non-predatory freshwater fish to our already existing portfolio of liver-derived cellular and sub-cellular in vitro systems of predator fish from fresh and salt-water.
