Plant hormones are active organic compounds that are synthesized in plants and can be transported from the site of production to the site of action, and can exert some physiological effects on plants in minute concentrations, playing an important regulatory role in gene expression, growth, development, and response to the environment.

Introduction of Plant Hormones-Targeted Metabolomics Analysis Services

Targeted metabolomics of phytohormones targets identified target phytohormones and is often used for quantitative analysis of known phytohormones. CD Genomics' targeted metabolomics of phytohormones service is based on our LC-MS, GC-MS and other platforms to help customers analyze the differences in plant hormones under different conditions. We are able to help our customers study the differences in plant hormone expression within and across species, the spatiotemporal metabolic profiles of plants, and the metabolic responses of plants to different ecological environments and stresses.

We can provide the following analysis results, including but not limited to.

  • Metabolite volcano map.
  • Heat map of differential metabolite clustering.
  • Correlation analysis heat map.

How Can We Help You

Choosing our targeted metabolomics analysis services for plant hormones can help you solve the following problems.

  • When the environment in which a plant lives changes, the plant's metabolic equilibrium is disrupted and it achieves a new state of equilibrium through its own regulation in order to adapt to the changes in the environment. We are able to use metabolomic analysis to detect the metabolic changes produced by plants facing stress, which can reveal the molecular mechanisms of plant stress resistance.
  • We are able to use metabolomics to analyze the differences in metabolic phenotypes of plants at different growth stages, in different tissues, in different growing environments, and different species.
  • The type and content of metabolites are closely related to quality traits such as nutrition and aroma. We are able to use metabolomics to study plant quality and metabolite correlations and to localize and identify genes controlling specific metabolites for plant breeding.
  • We are able to use metabolomics to study the metabolic phenotypes of medicinal plants, and the metabolic mechanisms of active substances affected by different ecological environments.
