biochemistry

The quantity or concentration of an enzyme can be expressed in terms of activity in enzyme units See Wikipedia: Enzyme activity = moles of substrate converted per unit time = rate reaction volume Enzyme activity is a measure of the quantity of active enzyme present and is thus dependent on conditions which should be specified

Fact Sheet: Phytase

Phytase is an enzyme that specifically acts on phytate breaking it down to release phosphorus in a form available to the animal This greatly reduces the need for supplemental inorganic phosphorus and improves the nutritional value of feedstuffs Phytase activity is expressed as phytase units or FTUs

Development of Slowly Digestible Starch Derived α

Previously we have identified and characterized 4 6-α-glucanotransferase enzymes of the glycosyl hydrolase (GH) family 70 (GH70) that cleave (α1→4)-linkages in amylose and introduce (α1→6)-linkages in linear chains The 4 6-α-glucanotransferase of Lactobacillus reuteri 121 for instance converts amylose into an isomalto/malto-polysaccharide (IMMP) with 90% (α1→6)-linkages Over

Citrate Synthase Enzyme Activity Assay

The enzyme activity is used to assess the oxidative capacity of the mitochondria as well as mitochondria integrity The reaction capacity of the citrate synthase can be followed by measuring the formation of the -SH group released from CoA-SH by use of the reactive Ellman reagent (5 5`-dithiobis [2-nitrobenzoic] DTNB) and monitoring the

Dilution Calculator

4/9/2005Units of activity (U) are typically used to describe enzyme catalytic activity where a unit (U) refers to the amount of enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of 1 micromole (μmole) of substrate per minute Thus 1 enzyme unit (U) = 1 μmol/min where μmol refers to the amount of substrate converted Because each enzyme has a unique substrate a unit of activity is different for one enzyme
