NMR-based analyses of lipids can shed insight into the global complement of cellular lipids, and elucidate the fuel sources and pathways contributing to lipid biosynthesis in cells grown in the presence of 13C-labeled fuels. We utilized 1H-13C HSQC NMR analysis of cellular lipids derived from FH- and mtDNA deficient UOK271 cells and observed robust reductive carboxylation of glutamine that resulted in formation and incorporation of 13C-glutamine-derived acetyl groups into lipid chains.
