Glyceraldehyde-3-Phosphate Dehydrogenase (GAPDH) Assay Kit                                                                                                          Price

Product Description: Glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH) is a glycolytic enzyme mediating the conversion of
glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate to 1,3-bisphosphate glycerate with the production of NADH. Although this house-keeping gene is often used as
internal control for RNA and protein analysis, expression of the gene can be altered under certain cell growth and differentiation conditions. In
addition, a switch from aerobic metabolism to anaerobic glycolysis may also be accompanied by a change in GAPDH expression. The GAPDH
enzyme activity assay kit can be used to quickly assess potential changes in the expression of the gene. The non-radioactive colorimetric
GAPDH assay is based on the reduction of the tetrazolium salt INT in a NADH-coupled enzymatic reaction to formazan, which is water-soluble and
exhibits an absorption maximum at 492 nm. The intensity of the red color formed is increased in the presence of increased GAPDH activity. The
kit is stable for at least one year if handled and stored properly.

Protein extracts were prepared
from 1-month old hamsters, and
assayed by GAPDH Assay Kit. The
study shows that the hamster liver
exhibits a much higher GAPDH
enzyme activity than the heart.
