BioVision Inc Malate Dehydrogenase Activity Colorimetric Assay Kit: Highly-sensitive assay to measure Malate Dehydrogenase (MDH) activity in animal tissues, adherent or suspension cells, mitochondria etc. Detection limit: < 0.5 mU. 100 assay
Manufacturer: BioVision Inc K654100
Malate Dehydrogenase (MDH) (EC 18.104.22.168) is an important enzyme which reversibly converts L-malate into oxaloacetate in the presence of NAD. In eukaryotic cells, malate dehydrogenase has 2 isoforms: MDH1 and MDH2. MDH1 is cytosolic & participates in the malate-aspartate shuttle, which transports malate into mitochondria for utilization in ATP generation whereas MDH2 is a mitochondrial enzyme and part of the citric acid cycle. MDH activity is increased in some neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, and abnormal MDH activity in serum can serve as a diagnostic tool for severe liver damage (e.g. Hepatocellular carcinoma). In BioVision’s Malate Dehydrogenase Activity Assay kit, MDH reacts with malate to form an intermediate. The generated intermediate reacts with MDH Developer to form a colored product with strong absorbance at 450 nm. The assay is simple, sensitive and can detect less than 0.5 mU of MDH activity in various sample types.
