Rapid and Sensitive Glycerol Detection in Biological Samples

The Glycerol-Glo™ Assay is a bioluminescent assay for rapid and sensitive measurement of glycerol in a variety of biological samples, including cells grown in monolayer or 3D structures, cell culture medium, tissues and serum samples. Glycerol is often measured as the product of lipolysis, where it is released from triglycerides. Glycerol is also a substrate or product of many other enzymatic or metabolic processes that can be studied with the glycerol assay. Any processes that result in changes in glycerol concentration, both extracellular and intracellular, can be studied with the Glycerol-Glo™ Assay.

How the Assay Works

The Glycerol-Glo™ Assay measures glycerol in a coupled reaction scheme that links the production of NADH to the activation of a proluciferin that produces light with luciferase. Glycerol kinase and glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase are used to generate NADH.

In the presence of NADH, Reductase enzymatically reduces a proluciferin Reductase Substrate to luciferin. Luciferin is detected in a luciferase reaction using Ultra-Glo™ Luciferase and ATP and the amount of light produced is proportional to the amount of glycerol in the sample.

Simple, Flexible Sample Preparation

Glycerol Release from Adipocytes

The Glycerol-Glo™ Assay can be used with cultured cells, including 3D cell culture models, homogenized tissue samples, cell culture medium samples and serum or plasma samples.

No organic extraction is required. The Glycerol Lysis Reagent effectively extracts glycerol from your sample in a single reagent addition without extreme heat, centrifugation steps or multi-step organic extraction protocols.

Glycerol release from adipocytes detected using the Glycerol-glo assay.
Adipocytes were differentiated from 3T3L1-MBX fibroblasts. Medium was removed and the cells were washed twice with PBS. Medium containing 2% fatty acid-free BSA and 5μM triacsin C to promote extracellular glucose accumulation was added, with or without 10μM isoproterenol to induce stimulated or control conditions, respectively. At the indicated time points, aliquots of medium were removed and assayed for glycerol. The glycerol detection assay is used to quantitate lipolysis in adipocytes.
