Lactate Dehydrogenase

Improved Essays
Lactate dehydrogenase was assayed according to the method of King (1965) [21].
Reagents required:
1. 0.1 M glycine buffer: 7.5 g of glycine and 5.85 mg of sodium chloride were dissolved in one litre of distilled water.
2. Buffered substrate: 2.76 g of lithium lactate was dissolved in 125 ml of glycine buffer containing 75 ml of 0.1 N sodium hydroxide solution. This was prepared just before use. 3. 0.4 N NaOH.
4. 5.0 mg of NAD+ was dissolved in 1.0 ml of distilled water just before use.
5. 2,4-dinitrophenyl hydrazine reagent (DNPH) : 200 mg of DNPH was dissolved in one litre of 1 N HCl.
6. Standard pyruvate solution: 12.5 mg of sodium pyruvate was dissolved in 100 ml of buffer. Procedure
To 1.0 ml of the buffered substrate, 0.1 ml of serum was added and the tubes were incubated at 37°C for 15 min. After adding 0.2 ml of NAD+ solution, the incubation was continued for another 15 min. The reaction was then arrested by adding 1.0 ml of DNPH reagent and the tubes were incubated for a further period of 15 min at

The slides were blocked using 5% Bovine serum albumin in Tris buffered saline-Tween 20 (TBST) for 1 h at room temperature to avoid non-specific binding. Then, the specific primary antibody for PCNA (IHC grade) and GST-pi (1:800 dilutions) were added to the sections and incubated at 4◦C, overnight. After washing, the slides were incubated with secondary antibody IgG-HRP (1:1000 dilutions) in TBS and 0.05% Tween 20 at room temperature. They were developed with DAB solution containing 0.05% DAB, H2O2 in TBS in a dark room for 10min and counter stained with hematoxylin followed by dehydration and mounted with DPX. Quantitative analysis was made in a blinded manner under a light microscope[27]. Each section was examined at a magnification of 20× and the ratio of positive area of hepatic tissue area was calculated. The mean of five different fields in each section was

    A series of standard solutions of concentrations in the range of 3-60µg/mL were obtained by further dilution of the aliquots with methanol. All the solutions were stored at -20oC and were equilibrated to room temperature prior to use. To prepare the standard calibration samples, 50µL of standard solution and 100µL of Acetonitrile were added to 100µL of blank plasma. The mixture was vortex-mixed for 10 min, followed by centrifugation at 4000 rpm for 15 min. 20µLof the supernatant was taken, then filtered through 0.22µm size syringe filter, and injected in HPLC for analysis.…

    To this 4 ml of 0.2 M H2O2 was added and time noted. Exactly after 180 seconds of adding H2O2, a set of 1ml of reaction mixture from the above was taken and 2 ml dichromate acetic acid was added. It was then kept in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes. All the tubes were then cooled under running tap water and finally readings were taken at 570 nm against reagent blank. The catalase activity in gastric tissue was expressed as µmoles H2O2 consumed /mg protein /min.…

    A stir bar was added into the flask containing isoborneol, and the flask was attached to a ring stand to rest on top of a magnetic stirrer device. In consistent drops, 0.63 mL of glacial acetic was added and the reaction had a pH of 2, which was measured with pH indicator paper. Then, 0.50 mL of 10% w/v sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) solution was added, and the reagents were reacted for three minutes. Shortly after, 5.13 mL of 10% w/v NaOCl was added incrementally with a Pasteur pipet for about ten minutes. A thermocouple was periodically placed on the outside of the flask to make sure that the mixture did not reach past 50 °C.…

    To a 5mL conical vial with a magnetic stir bar was added 0.08g 4-t-butylcyclohenanone and 0.5 mL ethanol. Then, 3 mL of 0.6 M NaBH4 was added to the solution, and the solution was stirred for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, HCl was added to solution. This caused the reaction to foam up and two layers appeared in the reaction. HCl was added until the foaming stopped.…

    For both trials, we used 25ml of Sprite. In Trial 1, 5.3ml of sodium hydroxide was added to the solution via titration. In Trial 2, 5.2ml of sodium hydroxide was used. To calculate molarity for Trial 1, we used the molarity of sodium hydroxide (NaOH), .101 and multiplied this number by the milliliters of NaOH used, 5.3. Then we used the molar relationship from the equation and divided by 3 moles of NaOH which is related to 1 mole of Acid, because they have a 3:1 relationship respectively.…

    Next, 25mL of 0.1 M Acetic acid is pipetted into a 100mL beaker. The 0.1 M Acetic acid is titrated with the 0.1 M NaOH in increments given in the data sheet; mixing well at each point and wait until the pH stabilizes. The pH is recorded at each increment and the electrode is rinsed with distilled water and placed back in the beaker with distilled water. Then, 25mL of 0.1 M Acetic acid is pipetted into a 250mL Erlenmeyer flask. Next, 2-3 drops of the proper indicator is added.…

    caudatum was measured according to the method proposed by Benzie and Strain. FRAP reagent was prepared by mixing in 25 mL acetate buffer (30 mM; pH 3.6), 2.5 mL TPTZ solution (10 mM) and 2.5 mL ferric chloride solution (20 mM). The mixture was incubated for 15 min at 37 °C before use. Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) was employed as a standard in this assay, and its calibration curve was obtained by using its concentrations ranging from 50 mg/L to 500 mg/L in water. To 2.85 mL FRAP reagent in a test tube, 150 μL plant sample (0.1 mg/mL, in methanol) or standard was added.…
