Psychiatry related information on Enzyme Tests


High impact information on Enzyme Tests

  • In this study, we investigated the role of caspases, the key regulators of apoptosis, and employed two novel caspase assays, an immunological and a luminometric enzyme test, to detect hepatic caspase activation in sera from HCV patients with different grades of steatosis [5].
  • Enzyme tests were carried out on the nuclear transplant embryos, using electrophoretic variants of glucose phosphate isomerase (GPI) in order to distinguish between EC nuclei (GPI-A) and recipient eggs (GPI-B) [6].
  • Ursodeoxycholic acid has resulted in improvement of liver enzyme tests [7].
  • The linkage of substrate deprotonation to flavin movement constitutes a novel mode of molecular recognition in which the enzyme tests the suitability of aromatic substrates before committing to the catalytic cycle [8].
  • The patients who received isoflurane and those who received midazolam showed no significant differences in any of the enzyme tests [9].

Anatomical context of Enzyme Tests


Associations of Enzyme Tests with chemical compounds


Gene context of Enzyme Tests

  • Reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction-based restriction enzyme tests for CYP2C21 and 2C41 mRNAs as well as polymerase chain reaction-based tests for genomic DNA were developed [16].
  • Enzyme tests with AKR-specific substrates suggest that GCY encodes a carbonyl reductase [17].
  • Eight nondrinking controls showed only slight increases in serum GGT following the same alcohol challenge; results for the other enzyme tests were unchanged [18].
  • Further measurement of the IC50(HDAC) values of VPA derivatives in a human HDAC enzyme test system revealed an activity range from 10 to 10 000 microM; in some derivatives, HDAC inhibition ability was 40 times that of VPA [19].
  • An allele-specific polymerase chain reaction-based restriction enzyme test was developed for genotyping individual dogs from genomic DNA samples [20].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Enzyme Tests

  • RESULTS: All sera were negative in microcolumn indirect antiglobulin test and enzyme test, positive in 58% of samples in the enzyme tube test [21].
  • The performance of a test enzyme preparation in the technique for which it is recommended for use should be at least equal to that of the reference papain preparation, by the reference two-stage technique in terms of sensitivity, using a titration series of the reference anti-D, and freedom from false-positive reactions, using six fresh inert sera [22].
  • The purpose of this study involving 99 metal degreasers was to examine dose-response relationships between long-term exposure of mainly trichloroethylene and a battery of liver function tests and one nephrotubular enzyme test [23].
