Alpha-glucosidase inhibition assay in an enzyme-immobilized amino-microplate

, : Alpha-glucosidase inhibition assay in an enzyme-immobilized amino-microplate. Analytical Sciences 25(4): 559-562

Alpha-glucosidase (AGH) from the small intestine of rat was immobilized onto a glutaraldehyde (GA) activated NH(2)-96 well microplate to establish a convenient and rapid AGH inhibition assay system. After AGH immobilization, remaining GA groups were blocked by beta-alanine to induce a negative charge on the surface of the well. The AGH-plate showed an enzyme activity of 444 nU/well under an assayed condition at 37 degrees C for 2 h using 0.3 mM 4-methylumbelliferyl-alpha-D-glucopyranoside as a fluorogenic substrate. Inhibitory powers of voglibose and acarbose as therapeutic AGH inhibitors were successfully evaluated to have IC(50) values of 13 and 114 nM, respectively.

In an attempt of document possible T-cell involvement in chronic myeloid leukemia, E rosette-positive colonies (ERPC) were grown in agar culture using a T-cell-conditioned medium. Colonies were grown from whole mononuclear cells (WMN), nonadherent...
