Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Submitochondrial Particle Assay
Description:  The procedure for determining catalytic activity of submitochondrial particles was adapted from Satoh et al. (e.g., see Satoh T, Miyoshi H, Sakamoto K, Iwamura H. Comparison of the inhibitory action of synthetic capsaicin analogues with various NADH-ubiquinone oxidoreductases. Biochim Biophys Acta. 1996, 1273, 21-30). NADH-DB reductase activity was measured using a stirred cuvette in a spectrophotometer (Hewlett-Packard, Houston Tex.) at 37° C., as the rate of NADH oxidation at 340 nm (ε=5.4 mM−1×cm−1) for 120 seconds. The final volume of the reaction was 2.5 mL, containing 50 mM K2HPO4 (pH 7.4), 0.4 μM Antimycin A, and 2 mM potassium cyanide. The final SMP concentration was 45 μg/mL. The enzyme reaction was initiated by the addition of 100 μM decyl ubiquinone and 50 μM NADH. Inhibitors at varying concentrations were pre-incubated with the reaction mixture containing SMPs for 4 min prior to initiation of the reaction. The IC50 value was determined as the concentration of the inhibitor required for 50% inhibition of the NADH oxidation. The IC50 value was calculated using GraphPad Prism Version 4 (GraphPad, San Diego, Calif.).
