CD BioSciences is committed to providing our clients with analytical services for iron-containing biomolecules through Mössbauer spectroscopy. Our dedicated scientific team helps clients obtain useful information to understand the biological functions of iron-containing biomolecules, thereby accelerating the process of understanding pathological changes in living systems, organs, tissues and biomolecules.
All cells contain a variety of iron-containing proteins that are essential to their survival. Iron-containing biomolecules play an important role in many aspects of the biological system, including oxygen recognition and electrical transport, enzymatic functions, oxygen and iron storage, and iron transport. Changes in the amount of iron-containing biomolecules in cells and tissues have been associated with serious diseases caused by disorders of the body's iron status. The relations of the iron electronic structure and molecular structure, as well as the biological functions of proteins and model compounds, are therefore an important element in the study of the molecular nature of various biological and pathological processes.
The development of physical techniques that can provide information on a substratum level is crucial for the study of physiological and pathological processes in living systems. Mössbauer spectroscopy is the most sensitive technique used to study the electrical and magnetic structure of iron in biological materials and has been widely used in medical research. This spectroscopic technique has demonstrated the possibility of observing changes in the number of iron-containing molecules as well as modifications of the iron environment in the molecular, which makes it possible to study various pathological states of the body at the molecular level.
