Product nameGlycolysis Stress Test Companion Assay
Sample typeAdherent cells
Assay typeCell-based (quantitative)
Glycolysis Stress Test Companion Assay (ab222945) allows glycolytic characterization at user-defined glucose concentrations in live cells when used in combination with our Glycolysis Assay [Extracellular Acidification] (ab197244).
The assay uses 2-Deoxyglucose (2-DG) and oligomycin to facilitate an in-depth analysis of cellular glycolytic flux: 2-DG blocks glycolysis through competitive hexokinase inhibition allowing quantification of non-glycolytic extracellular acidification (ECA); oligomycin inhibits ATP synthase, therefore preventing aerobic ATP generation and forcing cells to increase glycolytic flux to meet ATP demand. The levels of such compensatory glycolysis achievable under test conditions can reveal underlying glycolytic perturbation not evident under basal conditions and facilitates assessment of ATP-demand limited glycolysis capability. Glucose oxidase is included in the kit to provide a convenient cell-free ECA assay signal control.
