Continuous Spectrophotometric Rate Determination
7.3.1. 100 mM Potassium Phosphate, pH 5.0 at 25°C (Buffer) Prepare a 13.6 mg/ml solution in purified water using Potassium Phosphate, Monobasic, Sigma-Aldrich Product Number P5379. Adjust the pH of this solution to 5.0 at 25°C using 1N KOH.
7.3.2. 9.1 mM ABTS (Substrate) Prepare a 5.0 mg/ml solution in Reagent 7.3.1 using ABTS, Sigma-Aldrich Product Number A9941 . Check the pH of this solution and adjust to 5.0 at 25°C as necessary. Sigma-Aldrich Product Number A9941 is supplied as 10 mg tablets. Prepare Fresh.
7.3.3. 0.3% (w/w) Hydrogen Peroxide Solution (H2O2) Prepare a 0.3% (w/w) solution in purified water using Hydrogen Peroxide 30% (w/w) Solution, Sigma-Aldrich Product Number H1009. Prepare Fresh.
7.3.4. 40 mM Potassium Phosphate Buffer with 0.25% (w/v) Bovine Serum Albumin and 0.5% (v/v) Triton X-100, pH 6.8 at 25°C (Diluent)
18.104.22.168. Prepare a solution in purified water containing the following:
22.214.171.124.1. 5.4 mg/ml Potassium Phosphate, Monobasic, Sigma-Aldrich Product Number P5379.
126.96.36.199.2. 2.5 mg/ml Albumin, Bovine, Fraction V Powder, Sigma-Aldrich Product Number A4503.
188.8.131.52.3. 5.0 mg/ml Triton X-100, Sigma-Aldrich Product Number T6878. Triton is a registered trademark of Union Carbide Corp.
184.108.40.206. Adjust the pH of this solution to 6.8 at 25°C using 1N KOH.
7.3.5. Peroxidase Enzyme Solution (Enzy)
220.127.116.11. Prepare a 10 mg/ml stock solution of Peroxidase in cold Reagent 7.3.4.
18.104.22.168. Immediately before use, dilute to 0.20 – 0.80 units/ml in cold Reagent 7.3.4.
7.4.1. Pipette the following reagents (in milliliters) into suitable cuvettes:
|Reagent 7.3.2 (Substrate)||2.90||2.90|
7.4.2. Let the cuvettes equilibrate at 25°C in a suitably thermostated spectrophotometer for approximately five minutes, then add:
|Reagent 7.3.3 (H2O2)||0.10||0.10|
|Reagent 7.3.4 (Diluent)||0.05||-----|
|Reagent 22.214.171.124 (Enzy)||-----||0.05|
7.4.3. Immediately mix by inversion and record the increase in A405 nm for approximately 3 minutes. The fastest rate is usually in the first minute. If multiple levels of enzyme are to be run, test one at a time.
7.4.4. Obtain the ΔA405 nm/minute for the maximum linear rate for both the Test and Blank.
|7.5.1.||Units/mg solid =||(ΔA405 nm/min(test) - ΔA405 nm/min(blank)) * 3.05 * DF|
|36.8 * 0.05|
3.05 = Final volume (in milliliters) of reaction
DF = Dilution factor of enzyme
36.8 = Millimolar extinction coefficient of oxidized ABTS at A405 nm
0.05 = Volume (in milliliters) of enzyme used
7.6. FINAL ASSAY CONCENTRATION
In a 3.05 ml reaction mix, the final concentrations are 96 mM potassium phosphate, 8.7 mM 2,2'-azino-bis(3-ethylbenzthiazoline-6-sulfonic acid), 0.01% (w/w) hydrogen peroxide, 0.004% (w/v) bovine serum albumin, 0.008% (v/v) Triton X-100 and 0.01 - 0.04 unit peroxidase.
