Product Description Lipi 探针是在疏水环境(例如 LD)中发出强荧光的小分子。

脂滴的功能脂滴 (LD) 由中性脂质组成,例如三酰基甘油和胆固醇酯,它们被磷脂单层包围,并且无处不在,不仅在脂肪细胞中 1)。 虽然 LDs 被简单地认为是一种脂质储存单元,但最近的一项研究表明,LDs 在调节脂质代谢、自噬2) 和细胞衰老3) 方面发挥着重要作用。因此,作为阐明其机制的重要工具,LDs 受到了极大的关注 LD的形成、生长、融合和收缩。

Only by the addition of a reagent, the imaging of lipid droplets (LDs) or the quantitative variation of LDs in live and fixed cells becomes quantifiable.


Lipid Droplet Assay Kit considerably shortens the entire process and can be used for live cells.The fluorescent dye provided in the Lipid Droplet Assay Kit can be used for live and fixed cells. Compared to a method of using a colorimetric reagent, the method of using the Lipid Droplet Assay Kit can shorten measuring time. Furthermore, the repeatability of experiment can be increased by using the Lipid Droplet Assay Kit because the dye is not deposited in a plate.


Experimental example of plate assayChanges in lipid droplets were examined after the addition of oleic acid or Triacsin C (acyl-CoA synthetase inhibitor) to the A549 cell culture medium.

As a result, we confirmed that the oleic acid-treated cells show an increase in the number of LDs, compared to control and Triacsin C-treated cells.

Reagent ComparisonChanges in lipid droplets were examined after the addition of oleic acid or Triacsin C (acyl-CoA synthetase inhibitor) to the HeLa cell culture medium.As a result, we confirmed that the oleic acid-treated cells show an increase in the number of LDs, compared to control and Triacsin C-treated cells.

Preparing a stock solution of oleic acidRequired Reagents:・BSA (bovine serum albumin)・Oleic acid・0.1 mol/L Tris-HCl (pH 8.0)Procedure:(1) Dissolve 0.14 g/mL BSA in 0.1 mol/L Tris-HCl (pH 8.0).(2) Add 4 mmol/L oleic acid to a disposable centrifuge tube.(3) Add BSA solution (prepared in step 1).(4) Cap the tube and mix on a rotary shaker (Be sure the solution is transparent, indicating that oleic acid has been conjugated to BSA).(4) Filter the solution prepared above (step 4) using 0.22μm filter membranes.(5) Store oleic acid stock solution at 4˚C.*Use the appropriate amount of oleic acid stock solution for culture medium to prepare working solution.*Oleic acid working solution cannot be stored. Please prepare the working solution immediately before usage.

Inducing lipid droplets(1) Incubate cells for 24 hours at 37˚C in a 5% CO2 atmosphere.(2) Add 200 µmol/L working solution (prepared from oleic acid stock solution) to culture medium and incubate for further 24 hours.
