Measuring hexokinase activity in
cellular aging.
Bone marrow
mesenchymal stem cells (MSC)
were cultured in vitro. Early and
late passage MSC were harvested
for enzyme assay. The study
shows that hexokinase activity is
increased upon repeated cell
passages in vitro.

Fatty acid oxidation in the heart.
Mice were fed methionine-choline
deficient diet (MCDD) for 14 weeks.
Heart tissues were homogenized
and FAO activities were assayed by
the FAO Assay kit.
Biomedical Research Service
& Clinical Application
Measuring L-lactate levels in
culture media.
The assay reveals
that lactate production by the Bcl-2
expressor is reduced compared to
the parental HEK293 cells.

Discovering IMPDH inhibitors.
HeLa cells were treated with
DMSO (control) and 10 uM
mycophenolic acid (MPA) for 24
hours, following which cells were
harvested and IMPDH activity was
measured using the IMPDH assay
MMP2/9 Assay
Discovering inhibitor of MMP2/9.
Prinomastat, a potent MMP
inhibitor, reduces the activity of
MMP2/9 by ~70% at 2.5 nM using
the assay kit.
