We determined NAI 50% inhibitory concentrations ([IC.sub.50]s) of isolates using fluorometric-based NA inhibition assays (5) and evaluated their NA activity ([V.sub.max] [maximum velocity of substrate conversion]) by performing enzyme kinetics experiments (6).
The unit includes monochromator-based individual wavelength selection or wavelength scanning from 200 to 999 nm to accommodate an extensive range of assays, including nucleic acid and protein quantification, ELISA, microbial growth, endotoxin, ROS assays and enzyme kinetics. The onboard software in Epoch 2 eliminates the need for a separate computer and includes predefined common protocols for rapid assay setup and recall.
Due to a prior lack of adequate quantities of purified enzyme, a systematic study of enzyme kinetics has not been previously undertaken, though would be required for development of any inhibitor or assay of inhibition.
