The assay is based on the following reaction (Methods of Enzymatic Analysis, Bergmeyer, H.U. ed; Vol 3, 1238, 1974, Academic Press, New York).

  1. 0.055 M Tris-HCl, containing 0.0033 M magnesium chloride, pH 7.8.
  2. Assay Mixture. Dissolve 50.3 mg NADP+ in 30 ml Tris buffer, pH 7.8. Adjust the pH to 7.8 with 1 M NaOH, then add 150 units of Glucose-6-P-Dehydrogenase (G6-P-DH, EC and dissolve. This assay mixture is sufficient for ten assays. Prepare fresh prior to assay.
  3. 0.012 M Glucose-6-Phosphate. Dissolve 35 mg G-6-P in 10 ml distilled water. Prepare fresh.

  1. Set spectrophotometer (equipped with strip chart recorder and temperature control) at 340 nm and 37C.
  2. Into a cuvette, pipette 3 ml assay mixture and incubate in spectrophotometer at 37C for 3 minutes.
  3. Record the initial absorbance at 340 nm (Ai).
  4. Add 10 l Glucose-6-P (substrate) to the cuvette.
  5. Follow the reaction for 10 minutes at 37C.
  6. Record final absorbance at 340 nm (Af).

(delta)A = Af - Ai
Total Vol. = 3.01 ml
282 = MW of Glucose-6-P-monosodium salt (anhydrous)
Sample Vol. = 0.01 ml
