This novel array allows for the simultaneous quantification of 3 key enzymes involved in fatty acid oxidation: MCAD, SCHAD and Mitochondrial Trifunctional Protein. Frataxin is also included as a control.
The array is comprised of 4 monoclonal capture antibodies striped onto a dipstick, and the immunocaptured sample is detected using 4 monoclonal detector antibodies that recognize different epitopes on the target enzymes.
This array is very rapid (total assay time including sample prep is less than 1 hour) and very sensitive, and as with all MitoSciences' assays, isolation of mitochondria is not required.
This array is suitable for testing a variety of sample types, including cultured cells and tissue from cheek swabs. Not only is it useful for measuring samples that are deficient in the 3 enzymes due to genetic mutations, it is also useful for measuring changes in the expression of the enzymes due to drug treatments or other manipulations.
