Corticosterone Analysis Service

Corticosterone Analysis Service

Corticosterone, is also known as 17-deoxycortisol and  11β,21-dihydroprogesterone and the molecular formula of Corticosterone is C21H30O4. Corticosterone is a a 21-carbon steroid hormone, which is produced in the cortex of the  adrenal glands in rodents and other non-human animals.

Scientists at Creative Proteomics utilize a highly quantitative method with  high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC)  for the determination of Corticosterone levels in various samples, including  Serum, Tissue and more. High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) with UV detection is used for the  determination of Corticosterone (240 nm) levels in a lot of biological samples.  This Methodology provides accurate, reliable, and reproducible results of  Corticosterone measurement, which enables us to analyze of Corticosterone  levels in vitro and in vivo.

Corticosterone is a main glucocorticoid, which is a class of steroid  hormones in many species, including amphibians, reptiles, rodents and birds and  is involved in regulation of energy, immune reactions, and stress responses.  However, Corticosterone has very  weak glucocorticoid and mineralocorticoid activities in humans and just as  mainly as an intermediate in the steroidogenic pathway from pregnenolone to  aldosterone because cortisol is the most important glucocorticoid which is  produced primarily in the zona fasciculata of the adrenal cortex. Aldosterone  synthase, which is is a steroid hydroxylase cytochrome P450 enzyme involved in  the biosynthesis of the mineralocorticoid aldosterone, can converte Corticosterone to aldosterone and the  biochemical process is only found in the mitochondria of glomerulosa cells. Corticosterone is also the precursor  substrate for the biosynthesis of the mineralocorticoid aldosterone, which is  one of the dominant homeostatic modulators to regulate the levels of sodium and  potassium in vivo. Corticosterone also plays multiple roles in regulation of the process of memory and the main  effects is on the modulating the stress on the emotional memories and the  impact of long term memory.

The Russian-Polish botanist M. Tswett is  generally recognized as the first person to establish the principles of  chromatography. In a paper he presented in 1906, Tswett described how he filled  a glass tube with chalk powder (CaCO3) and, by allowing an ether solution of  chlorophyll to flow through the chalk, separated the chlorophyll into layers of  different colors. He called this technique “chromatography”. Fundamentally,  chromatography is a technique used to separate the components contained in a  sample. High Performance Liquid  Chromatography (HPLC) is a method able to separate non-volatile, thermally  unstable, and polar components separate or in a mixture. HPLC is a type of chromatography that, because of its wide  application range and quantitative accuracy, is regarded as an indispensable  analytical technique, particularly in the field of organic chemistry. It is  also widely used as a preparation technique for the isolation and purification  of target components contained in mixtures.
