A Carnitine is a Quaternary ammonium compound that supports metabolism within living organisms such as mammals, plants, and bacteria. Carnitine is an important factor in energy production by using its ability to transport long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria so that they can be oxidized and produced into energy.

Ion Channel Modulation
An Ion channel modulator is a chemical compound whose role is to modulate ion channels. These compounds are normally categorized by using a gating mechanism and the ion which they conduct. However, there are cases where the category can overlap as some channels will conduct multiple ion currents or can be gated by multiple mechanisms.

A Nucleotide is a molecule consisting of a Nucleoside and a Phosphate. Nucleotides are the basic building block of Nucleic Acid.
A Nucleoside is a compound that consists of a purine or pyrimidine base combined with deoxyribose or ribose. These compounds are typically found in RNA or DNA.

Ox Stress Reagents
A reagent used to chemically analyze an Oxidative Stress phenomenon. Oxidative Stress is caused by an imbalance between the production and accumulation of oxygen reactive species (ROS) in cells and tissues and the ability of a biological system to detoxify these reactive products.

Peptides are short-chain compounds ranging between 2-50 amino acids, linked using peptide bonds. A large number of Peptides have been discovered and have been classified based on their use and function. Examples of these classes include vaccine peptides, endocrine peptides, bacterial/antibiotic peptides, and cancer/anticancer peptides.

Receptor Pharmacology is the study of how receptors and API’s/pharmaceuticals interact. Receptors are compounds made of protein, that receive and transduce signals which may be integrated into biological systems. The signals are used as chemical message bearers which will bind to a receptor causing a cellular/tissue response, such as a change in the electrical activity of a cell.

Small Molecule Activators
Small Molecule Activators are compounds that have the ability to stimulate activity within specific enzymes. Small Molecule Activators can be extremely useful as anti-microbial and anti-cancer agents when treating health issues such as cancer, diabetes, and metabolic disorders.
SMA’s are advantageous due to their potential to act as probes to investigate the physiological effects of selectively increasing the expression of a specific target/enzyme.
