hexokinase method

hex·o·ki·nase meth·od

the most specific method for measuring glucose in serum or plasma, wherein hexokinase plus ATP transforms glucose to glucose 6-phosphate plus ADP; glucose 6-phosphate is then reacted with NADP and glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase to form NADP which is measured spectrophotometrically.

(heks'ō-kī'nās meth'ŏd)
The most specific method for measuring glucose in serum or plasma, involving hexokinase, ATP, glucose 6-phosphate NADP, and glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase.
