ENZYMATIC Homocysteine Assay

TECHNICAL BULLETIN FEATURES

  • Single-enzyme in vitro diagnostic assay for total homocysteine (tHcy) in plasma
  • Assay is based on genetically-engineered recombinant homocysteine cleaving enzyme
  • Excellent correlation with HPLC
  • High precision
  • High throughput with a linear calibration curve
  • No immunochemical reactions
  • Simplest and least total homocysteine assay
  • 510(k) cleared

PRINCIPLE OF THE TOTAL ENZYMATIC HOMOCYSTEINE ASSAY

In the Enzymatic Homocysteine Assay, protein-bound tHcy is first reduced to free Hcy. Genetically-engineered recombinant homocysteinase (rHCYase) then reacts with the free Hcy to form hydrogen sulfide (H2S), ammonia, and a-ketobutyrate:

 tHcy -------------> a-ketobutyrate + NH4 + H2S

 rHCYase

H2S then reacts with a proprietary fluorophore to give a fluorescence or absorption change.For fluorescence, the excitation wavelength is 665 nm and the emission is at 690 nm. Absorbance can be read between 660 and 680 nm. The test is linear from 1 mM to 50 mM. The Enzymatic Homocysteine Assay has been specifically optimized to minimize any cross reactivity with cysteine and methionine.

AVAILABILITY

The Enzymatic Homocysteine Assay has 510 (k) FDA clearance for the Hitachi 912. Kits are now available. Contact Li Tang, Business Development Manager, at all@anticancer.com

SPECIMEN COLLECTION AND PREPARATION

EDTA-plasma is recommended for homocysteine determination. Storage should be at 4C for short periods. For longer storage, samples should be kept frozen at -20C or kept in 3-deazaadenosine. Overnight fasting is recommended before blood is drawn. Standardized sampling procedures are crucial.
