Biochemical and High Throughput Microscopic Assessment of Fat Mass in Caenorhabditis Elegans

Abstract

The nematode C. elegans has emerged as an important model for the study of conserved genetic pathways regulating fat metabolism as it relates to human obesity and its associated pathologies. Several previous methodologies developed for the visualization of C. elegans triglyceride-rich fat stores have proven to be erroneous, highlighting cellular… (More)
