7. Procedure

7.1 CONDITIONS:
T = 25°C, pH = 8.8 , A340nm, Light path = 1 cm

7.2 METHOD:
Spectrophotometric Stop Reaction

7.3 REAGENTS:

7.3.1    22 mM Sodium pyrophosphate, 3.2% (v/v) ethanol, 7.5 mM β-nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, 0.3 mM sodium phosphate, 0.003% (w/v) bovine serum albumin, pH 8.8 at 25 °C (Cocktail) (dssolve 0.981G of sodium pyrophosphate, decahydrate (Product No. S9515) Dissolve 4.14 mg of Sodium Phosphate, Monobasic, Anhydrous, (Product No. S9638), 3.3 mg of albumin, bovine, (Product No. A9647) and 559 mg of β-Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (Product No. N6522) in 90 mL deionized water. Immediately adjust the pH to 8.8 with 8% (v/v) phosphoric acid or 1 N NaOH at 25 °C. Add 3.2 mL of 200 proof USP ethyl alcohol (Product No. Z5130) with stirring. Readjust the pH to 8.8 with 8% (v/v) phosphoric acid or 1 N NaOH at 25 °C and dilute to 100 mL with deionized water.)

7.3.2    10 mM Sodium phosphate buffer, pH 7.5 at 25 °C (Enzyme Diluent-1) (Dissolve 710 mg of sodium phosphate dibasic, anhydrous (Product No. S9763) in 500 mL of deionized water. Adjust to pH 7.5 at 25 °C with Reagent 7.3.3.)

7.3.3    10 mM Sodium phosphate solution, (Enzyme Solution) (Dissolve 480 mg of sodium phosphate monobasic, Anhydrous (Product No. S9638) in 480 mL of deionized water.)

7.3.4    10 M Sodium phosphate buffer with 0.1% (w/v) bovine serum albumin, pH 7.5 at 25 °C (Enzyme Diluent-2) (Dissolve 100 mg of Albumin, Bovine (Product No. A9647) in 100 mL of reagent 7.3.2. Adjust pH to 7.5 at 25 °C with 8% Phosphoric or 1N NaOH.)

7.3.5    Alcohol dehydrogenase solution (enzyme solution) (obtain a “Evergreen” 3 mm X 1 mm column with porous filter disc and flexible rubber closure. Add 0.10 mL of deionized water to each column and mark the column at this level with a permanent marker. Repeat this process until the column is graduated to 1.50 mL. Empty the column and dry with forced air. Accurately weigh 250 mg of A2529 into column with closure on. Add 5.0 mL of cold deionized water and swirl. Allow to swell on ice for one hour. Immediately before pipetting into reaction cocktail, measure swelled, gel volume in milliliters. After removing bottom closure proceed to wash the sample with 50 volumes of cold deionized water (50 times packed gel volume). Record the volume of packed/washed gel and add the appropriate volume of Reagent 7.3.2 (Enzyme Diluent-1) to obtain a concentration of 10 Units of alcohol dehydrogenase / mL of suspension. Carefully invert the suspension until all of packed gel is resuspended and immediately remove an aliquot and dilute to 1 to 2 units / mL with Reagent 7.3.4 (Enzyme Diluent-2).

7.4 ENZYMATIC ASSAY:

Pipette (in milliliters) the following reagents into a 100 mL beaker with a stir bar

7.4.1    Pipette (in milliliters) the following reagents into a suitable containers:
 

  Test Blank
Reagent 7.1.1 (Cocktail) 29.9 29.9

 

7.4.2    Mix by inversion and allow to stand at 25 ºC for a minimum of five minutes and no longer than six minutes.
 

  Test Blank
Reagent 7.1.4 (Enzyme Diluent–2) ----- 0.10
Reagent 7.1.5 (Enzyme Solution) 0.10 -----

 

Immediately start timer and filter an aliquot from each reaction mixture using a 0.45 mm filter. Record time in minutes and A340nm (AI). After exactly six minutes, remove another aliquot and filter an aliquot from each reaction mixture using a 0.45 m filter. Record the time in minutes and A340nm (AF).

8. Calculations

ΔA340nm/min (Blank) = [AF (Blank) – AI (Blank)] / ( Time Final in minutes – Time Initial in minutes)
ΔA340nm/min (Test) = [AF (Test) – AI (Test)] / ( Time Final in minutes – Time Initial in minutes)
 

Units/ml packed gel = (ΔA340nm/min Test - ΔA340nm/min Blank) (30.0)(df-1)(df-2)
(6.22) (0.10) (mL of packed gel)

 

30.0= Total Volume (in milliliters) of enzymatic assay
6.22 = Millimolar extinction coefficient of b-NADH at 340 nm
df-1 = Dilution Factor-1
df-2 = Dilution Factor-2
0.1 = Volume (in milliters) of diluted ezyme used in enzyme reaction mixture
 

Units/gram of solid = (ΔA340nm/min Test - ΔA340nm/min Blank) (30.1)(df-1)(df-2)
(6.22) (0.10) (grams of solid)

 

30.0= Total Volume (in milliliters) of enzymatic assay
6.22 = Millimolar extinction coefficient of b-NADH at 340 nm
df-1 = Dilution Factor-1
df-2 = Dilution Factor-2
0.1 = Volume (in milliters) of diluted ezyme used in enzyme reaction mixture
Units / gram of Agarose = (Units / gram of solid ) X 9.708
9.708 = gram of solid / gram of Agarose

9. Emergency Shutdown

11. Notes

1. Alcohol Dehydrogenase is highly unstable in solution and should be assayed immediately following preparation of solutions.

2. In a 30 mL reaction mix, the final concentrations are 22 mM sodium pyrophosphate, 3.2% (v/v) ethanol, 7.5 mM β-nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, 0.3 mM sodium phosphate, 0.003% (w/v) bovine serum albumin, and 0.1 to 0.2 unit alcohol dehydrogenase.
