Unit Definition

1 U corresponds to the amount of enzyme which increases the absorbance at 280 nm by 0.001 per minute at pH 2.0 and 37°C (Hemoglobin, Cat.No. 51290, as substrate) 15′000 absorbance-U as described above are equivalent to ∼1 Bergmeyer-U. 1 Bergmeyer-U is the amount of enzyme which hydrolyzes 1 μmol Acetyl-L-phenyl-3,5-diiodo-L-tyrosine at pH 2.0 and 37°C
