Analyzing enzyme kinetics


Enzyme inhibition is a major pharmacological approach in medication of human diseases. For dixon plotinstance, many drugs are inhibitors of human key-enzymes, correcting metabolic imbalances like hypertension (ACE-inhibitors) or lipid metabolism disorders (HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors).


MetaPhysiol offers kinetic analysis of your samples on the activity of commercially available recombinant or native enzymes. Alternatively, we can isolate the favored enzyme from animal and plant tissues or human cell cultures. In practice, we try to purchase the purified enzymes for the assay from commercial suppliers. Since commercial supply may be critical, it may be necessary to purify the assay enzyme(s) from animal tissues or human cell cultures.
