Determination of phenylalanine hydroxylase activity by liquid chromatography/electrochemistry.

An assay method is presented for the determination of phenylalanine hydroxylase activity in biological samples. The procedure is rapid and requires little sample. Multiple components of the enzyme system are determined and therefore serve as internal checks of the assay system. Liquid chromatography/electrochemistry is employed to follow the oxidation of the tetrahydropterin cofactor to the dihydropterin and to follow the formation of tyrosine. The KM and Vmax values of both phenylalanine and 6-methyl-5,6,7,8-tetrahydropterin were determined for mouse liver phenylalanine hydroxylase. Determination of the stoichiometry of the reaction showed that 1 mol of dihydropterin and 1 mol of tyrosine are formed per mole of tetrahydropterin that is oxidized. The reaction rate was linear for several minutes and over a wide range of enzyme (protein) concentrations.[1]
