Fluorimetric determination of aldose reductased in small tissue samples

Sven E. Brolin, Per Olof Berggren, Peter Naeser

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The assay is based on the consumption of NADPH catalyzed by the enzyme, with glucose as substrate, and measurement of the native NADPH fluorescence. This modification yields 10-fold higher sensitivity than the usual procedure based on absorbance measurements at 340 nm. The method is applied to tissue samples weighing 0.1-2 mg.
