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 during cellular

Mice were fed methionine- and
choline-deficient (MCD) diet for
14 weeks. Heart tissues were
homogenized and FAO
activities were assayed. The
data indicate that cardiac fatty
acid oxidation capacity can be
compromised in the fatty acid

& Clinical Application
Mice were fed methionine- and
choline-deficient (MCD) diet for 6
weeks. Liver tissues were
homogenized and PGI activities
were assayed. The data show that
the fatty liver exhibits increased
PGI activities. In addition, the
serum level of PGI activity is also
increased in the fatty liver model.

PGI Assay
Fatty Acid Oxidation
Hexokinase Assay
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. The
IMPDH activity assay kit has
been used for drug discovery
MMP2/9 Assay
Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs)
play important roles in ECM
remodeling. Prinomastat, a potent
MMP inhibitor, reduces the activity
of MMP2/9 by ~70% at 2.5 nM
using the convenient MMP2/9
liquid assay kit.
Nagalase Assay
Skeletal muscle tissues were
collected from normal
hamster (F1B strain) and
dystrophic strain (TO2), and
homogenized. Muslce
Nagalase enzyme activity
was measured, showing that
muscular dystrophy is
associated with increased
Nagalase enzyme activity.
