Glucose-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase (G6PDH) is a cytosolic enzyme which plays a key role in the Pentose Phosphate Pathway (PPP). The PPP pathway supplies reducing energy to cells (such as erythrocytes) by maintaining the level of the co-enzyme nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADPH). The NADPH in turn maintains the level of glutathione in these cells that helps protect the red blood cells against oxidative damage. Recently studies have found increased G6PDH activity in various human tumors and knockdown of this G6PDH decreases cell proliferation and enhances apoptosis in vitro. Therefore, targeting this key enzyme is essential for developing novel therapeutic approach for treatment/cure of cancer. In BioVision’s G6PDH assay kit, Glucose-6-Phosphate is oxidized by glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase to generate 6-Phosphoglucono-δ-Lactone and form NADH, which reacts with a probe to produce a signal at OD 450 nm. In the presence of G6PDH inhibitor, these reactions are impeded, thus decreasing the rate and/or extent of generation of G6PDH-dependent absorbance. Thus, this kit provides a sensitive, quick, and easy method for screening potential inhibitors of G6PDH. G6PDH Inhibitor Control is included to compare the efficacy of test inhibitors. The assay is high-throughput adaptable and can be performed in less than 30 min.

What is the exact volume of sample required for this assay?
There is no specific volume we can recommend for the amount any sample to be used since it is completely sample concentration and quality based. You have to do a pilot expt with multiple sample volumes to determine the optimal volume which gives a reading within the linear range of the standard curve. Please refer to the citations for this product to see what other clients have used with similar sample types.
Do you have trial sizes of this kit?
Unfortunately, we do not have trial sizes of this kit available. However, if you are based in the US or Canada, we will give you a 10% off list price introductory discount on its purchase price. If you are based out of this area please contact yopur regional BioVision distributor.
Can we purchase individual components of this kit?
Yes, you can purchase any of the kit's components without the whole kit. Please refer to the component Cat #s mentioned on the datasheet for ordering.
Can we use an alternate buffer for sample preparation (cell lysis, sample dilutions etc)?
Our assay buffers are optimized for the reactions they are designed for. They not only contain some detergents for efficient lysis of your cells/tissue, but also contain some proprietary components required for the further reactions. Therefore, we highly recommend using the buffers provided in the kit for the best results.
