enzyme activity assay - succinate dehydrogenase (Aug/08/2006 )


I am trying to perform an activity assay for bacterial succinate dehydrogenase.
Do you have any suggestions for the realization of this project?



There r some old papers which describe the assays for succinate dehydrogenase activity.

I dont have access to these papers.

"The succinic dehydrogenase and cytochrome c oxidase activities of guinea-pig skin after mild heat damage. Carney SA, Hall M, Ricketts CR."

Lactic and succinic dehydrogenase activity in nitrite toxicosis in the guinea pig.
Am J Vet Res. 1970 Feb;31(2):321-6.


the assay conditions may be in the Worthington catalog or in "Methods in Enzymology".

you might also look for a data sheet from a company that sells the enzyme.
